I have a 2006 Honda Pilot EX. Recently my key fob remote stopped working. I replaced the battery, and now all the buttons work except for the lock button. I tried reprogramming it several times but I never could get the locks to cycle. Am I doing something wrong or will I have to replace the transmitter? If I have to replace the transmitter, where would I do that?

If it's just that lock button on your fob, assuming your locks work with the lock button on the inside of the driver's door, then yes, you'll probably have to change the fob (transmitter inside the key).

Don't waste your money at the dealer, since you can get those cheap on Amazon, AliExpress or eBay, for example:

Then you'll need to reprogram your fobs.


Have all remotes for the vehicle on hand. Make sure all the doors and rear hatch/trunk are closed during programming. Only need to use 1 remote to get into program mode but all remotes must be programmed during the same session. Each step must be completed within 5 seconds.

1. Sit in the car with all doors/trunk tightly closed

2. Turn the key to the ON position, marked by "II" on the ignition bezel so the dash lights come on, then within 5 seconds press the "Lock" button on the remote for 1 second or so and release the button.

3. Turn the key to the OFF position, marked by "I" on the ignition bezel - dash lights go off.

4. Repeat steps 2 & 3 three more times (A total of 4 times) -- each step must be done within 5 seconds of the previous step.

5. Upon the 4th turning of the key to "ON", press the lock button on one remote, the locks will make a cycling sound (clunk), locks will NOT lock or unlock at this point, they will just make a noise. The system is now in programming mode. Do not turn key off.

6. Within 5 seconds of entering programming mode and within 5 seconds of each other, press the lock button ON EACH remote you are programming, for a second or so and release. This step needs to be completed within 10 seconds. Each time a remote button is pushed, the locks should cycle. Up to 3 remotes can be programmed.

7. Turn ignition completely off and remove the key. Step out of car and close door. The remotes should be programmed and should work. If you have a trunk/hatch release, the button for this feature needs to be held for a few seconds before the trunk/hatch will "pop".
