I was trying to program my '02 CR-V and '03 Pilot to use the same remotes.
Seems that they are not compatable. Does anyone know of a fix?

I have a 2000 Insight and a 2003 Pilot. Would love to "Share" the same remote.

Any ideas?

Have you tried?

Have you tried programming one into the other yet?
Let me know the results.
Thanks

I didn't know it was possible. I will have to get the manual out and see if it can be done.

The book says you will need to have the dealer reprogram your car & remote to work together if you loose one. Anyone have the repair manual and can post here how to do this ourselves?

Didn't know this was even possible either. Have you done this before with Honda remotes? Sounds like a great solution to having a Civic and a Pilot remote but I have my doubts. Good Luck and let us know if this works . :4:

I just bought the remotes for our CR-V lx and programmed it last night. The Cr-v comes with the receiver module built in, so you just get the remotes.

programming was easy, basically turning the ignition on, pressing the remote button, turning the ignition off. this is repeated three times. then the remote is programmed. worked well.

don't know what the deal is with the pilot. And I don't know if Honda remotes can be programmed to control two cars. Needless to say, that would be fantastic and lighten my key chain load.

I'm going to do some research and find out. will post what I find.

From what I can tell

From what I can tell Honda uses 2 or more incompatable types of remotes.
The Pilot and the 2002 CR-V are not compatable :(
Maybe someone will build a programable remote that can do both.

How about 99 accord EX and 03 pilot EX?

Can I get both car remotes work together? Any info? I don't like to carry 2 remotes with me all the time. One remote is already very bulky.

Thanks. :18:

My manual does not give the programming procedure. Can someone post it here so I can try it. I have a 2000 Honda Insight Hybrid and the Pilot. Hoping the remote can operate both.

Honda should offer a dual remote with buttons for two cars since many Honda families have more than one.

After searching the web for answer, I think I have some idea if we can program remote for different honda car.

With any remote, there is a FCC ID on the back of the remote. Try to match the remote. If you have the same FCC ID, your chances of being able to program the remote to work on different car will increased.

Here is an example. My 99 honda accord remote has FCC ID : KOBUTAH2T. My 03 honda pilot remote has FCC ID: NHVWB1U521.

I don't think the remote is compatible. I will end up getting some spare remote from ebay.

Speaking of programming. Here is the instruction I found on Deja.com:
1. Turn the ignition switch on (II).
2. Within 1 to 4 sec., push the transmitter lock or unlock button
with the transmitter aimed at the receiver (control unit). [MY NOTE:
I have found you just need be sitting in the drivers seat and hold it
anywhere]
3. Within 1 to 4 sec., turn the ignition switch OFF.
4. Within 1 to 4 sec., turn the ignition switch ON (II).
5. Within 1 to 4 sec., push the transmitter lock or unlock button
with the transmitter aimed at the receiver (control unit).
6. Within 1 to 4 sec., turn the ignition switch OFF.
7. Within 1 to 4 sec., turn the ignition switch ON (II).
8. Within 1 to 4 sec., push the transmitter lock or unlock button
with the transmitter aimed at the receiver (control unit).
9. Within 1 to 4 sec., turn the ignition switch OFF.
10. Within 4 sec., turn the ignition switch ON (II).
11. Within 1 to 4 sec., push the transmitter lock or unlock button
with the transmitter aimed at the receiver (control unit).
12. Confirm you can hear the sound of the door lock actuators.
Within 1 to 4 sec., push the transmitter lock or unlock button again.
13. Within 10 sec., aim the transmitters (up to three) whose codes
you want to store at the receiver, and press the transmitter lock or
unlock buttons. [MY NOTE: same as #2, you can hold it anywhere while
sitting in the drivers seat]
14. Turn the ignition switch OFF, and pull out the key.
15. Confirm proper operation with the new code(s). [MY NOTE: test
each remote out to make sure it works. My mistake originally was not
following step #12 precisely. The remote you were using during steps
1 through 11 must be pressed in step #12. I kept stepping over that
operation and wound up never programming that particular remote].

Here is also a link to a pdf file http://www.handaaccessories.com/civic/civickeylessentry.pdf

One remote for two vehicles

Assuming that the two vehicles are parked in the same general area... wouldn't a single remote that controlled them both be problematic?

Suppose I wanted to unlock only ONE of the vehicles; wouldn't the other one unlock as well??

Basically, your assumption is very truth.

I think there is no perfect world. You either have to compromise something to make things work.



:p :p

Just got a few remote off ebay.
$10 each.... not too bad if you looking to paid $80 for a new one from the dealer...

Anyone got a chance to try to program additional remote yet?

I'm still waiting for the remote to ship. Once I got it, I will try it out. :2:

2002 CR-V and 2003 Pilot are different remotes

You can not add either remote to the other car :(

Check the FCC ID on the back of the remote. If the FCC ID match, you can add the remote to the car. :)

More than 2 remote for pilot

OK, here is the deal.

I got another remote from ebay. Before I purchase, I make sure the FCC ID for the remote match the one for my pilot.

I got the remote today. :D

I followed the instruction on how to program a remote. I successfully programmed the extra remote to work with my pilot. :cool: Cool, I got 3 remote for my pilot now.

I'm now waiting for another 2 extra remote for my accord. Then I can have 4 remotes that will actually work with my accord.

:4:

Accord??

I thought the limit was 3 remotes per car.
Maybe the Accord system is different and hold 4?

keyless remote programming

Before reading that the CR-V and Pilot keyless remotes were incompatible, I tried to reprogram my Pilot remote in order to add the CR-V Remote. Since the FCC ID codes are different, this did not not work, and now it seems that I cannot even program JUST the Pilot remote on the Pilot. Are the instructions slightly different for programming the keyless remote on the Pilot? I have gone through the routine of
1. Turn Key to On (II)
2. Push the remote lock button
3. Turn Key to Off (I).
4. Repeat steps one through three twice more.
5. Turnkey to On (II)
6. Push the remote lock button.
7. Push the remote lock button AGAIN. This time it sounds like the locks "cycle".
8. Turn key off and remove.

Now the remote will UNLOCK the locks (if they are locked) but will not LOCK the locks.

Anybody have any ideas??
