      I just got 2 more blanks from AliExpress- takes weeks.- they have the chip too.
      Some AliExpress vendors have recently added key cutting keys to the keys they sell. It's dirt cheap for the peace of mind that comes with having extra keys, and it's dirt cheap compared to the places I had to hunt down a couple of years ago. If I had to do it now, that's the way I'd go.



      While you're at it, why not upgrade to a flip key that won't gouge you in the groin? :)



      Don't forget you need a programmed immobilizer chip. If you're not digging out your original one, as I did, you can get an immobilizer chips and a programmer for a heck of a lot less than a local dealer or whoever would charge.

      I like puzzles so the aboves sounds like fun. ;^)

      We don't have keyless entry yet, I'm still searching for an KLE assembly harness off a wrecked LX (EX had a very different hardness with some of the features integrated). Get the actual wireless module is easy and I ordered that from HondaPartsCheap.com. HomePartsNow.com accepted my order for the harness assembly but cancelled it two days later saying it was discontinued. (sigh) Now I have to search junkyards for an 03-05 LX with KLE.

      I'm looking for just the key with the RFID holder, no build in FOB. So I think I need to order this:
      1.17US $ 15% OFF|KEYYOU New Uncut Replace remote car key Transponder Ignition for honda CR V XR V Accord Civic Jade No Chip|Car Key| - AliExpress
      ... and then use they their key cutting service.

      Now I'm trying to puzzle out which RFID chip I need to purchase. From this website:
      https://www.transpondery.com/transponder_catalog/honda_transponder_catalog.html it looks like I have:
      HONDA PILOT - 2003-2005 Transponder Megamos13 / ID13 / Silca: 13 / JMA: TP05

      So I'm looking for RFID chip with ID13, correct?

      Thanks,

      For the immobilizer chip, either dig them out of the original keys and secure them in your new keys, or buy new immobilizer chips and a little immobilizer programmer, or pay the dealership to do it, which will likely cost you more.

      It's the immobilizer chip.

      My AliExpress key worked just fine because I transferred the little immobilizer chip from my previous key.



      Was your new key without a chip, as most are? Or did it specify it came "with chip" as this one does?

      Since you don't have a previous key to transfer the immobilizer chip, in either case you'll need to get it programmed, either by the dealer or with a little chip programming tool.

      If your new key didn't specify that it comes "with chip," you can one here, for example:

      US $4.19 33% OFF|Blank T5 ID20 Carbon Chip Car Key Transponder Chip Replacement fit for VW AUDI HONDA|Car Key| - AliExpress


      Next, program the chip either at the dealer ($) or get one of the blue Honda immobilizer chip programmers from AliExpress or eBay or wherever. Be sure it says "For Honda" and to buy from a seller you think you can trust.

      Once you have programmed the chip, install in that little space for it near the hilt of the key. Secure it there. I used blue sticky tack, like for putting up posters, but others have used glue.

      No chip, I dug mine out of my old key and transferred it in, along with the fob.

      You can get a chip yourself here, if you need to. You already have the programmer, right?

      US $4.0 31% OFF|Blank T5 ID20 Carbon Chip Car Key Transponder Chip Replacement fit for VW AUDI HONDA|Car Key| - AliExpress

      Depending on your needs, you could also get the whole shebang in a straight key and transfer and program the fob and the immobilizer chip.

      Hey there,
      I'm up a creek again with these keys! AGAIN!
      This time, somehow I lost my one good key I recently had cut, got that OBD programmer gadget and programmed myself- everything was fine. Until somehow in my house/yard I lost it!
      I'm using my broken key again, apparently either I didn't program it for the door locks, or the battery is dead in it. I have to manually lock and unlock the doors. Oh the humanity! Pun intended.

      I'm going to have 2 more made again. I'll program them again with the OBD port thing- I think.

      So, PlPl, which ones do you suggest- some come in a 2 pack- that's what I want I think?
      It has to have a blank chip in there too to program, etc.

      Sorry for your loss. :(

      You can get a couple of these, which come with the little (unprogrammed) immobilizer chip.

      10.39US $ 30% OFF|1pcs 433MHz 3 Buttons Keyless Entry Remote Key Fob Clicker with 46 Chip CWTWB1U545 fit for Honda Pilot 2005 2006 2007 2008|Car Key| - AliExpress

      9.43US $ 25% OFF|KEYYOU For Honda Pilot 2005 2006 2007 2008 CWTWBIU545 ID46 Chip Remote Car key Fob 433Mhz 3 3+1 Buttons|Car Key| - AliExpress


      Or you can get any of the chipless ones and buy your immobilizer chips separately...

      4.06US $ 30% OFF|Blank T5 ID20 Carbon Chip Car Key Transponder Chip Replacement fit for VW AUDI HONDA|Car Key| - AliExpress


      ...which you could then use to step up into my happy world of flip keys.

      Thank you PlPl, I'm having trouble with my aliexpress account here from work. I'll try when I get home.
      I'm not quite ready for the flip keys yet. LOL
