Default Honda key blanks....

Where can I obtain a key blank (with the black rubber handle -- don't know
the technical name) for my 1995 Honda Passport. Some site online wants like
$80.00 to do an original key. Yeah, right!!!

Do not know where you are from but overhere (Europe) they duplicate keys
at almost any local hardware store. Will cost around USD 5,-
Kind regards,

Those expensive keys are called "transponder" keys. Some key shops can
provide them, and $80 sounds a little high but maybe not, and can cut the
key itself so you can open the door with it. But the car has to be
programmed to accept the key as a valid electronic key when you use it to
start the car. Don't know about late model Hondas, but with our 2002 Toyota
(Prius) the procedure involves a dance that is guaranteed to make you feel
foolish and to make bystanders point and stare:
http://www.coastaletech.com/keys.htm. The Honda may require programming at
the dealer - I dunno. It's the price of security against car thieves, at
least the ones who don't use tow trucks.

BTW - don't ever lose the last programmed key, so you don't have any. My
understanding is that requires replacement of the security module, for many
hundreds of dollars.

In 1995, Honda wasn't using immobilizer style ignition keys in the
Odyssey, at least not in Canada.

It started in Canada in '98 year for Odyssey. You can tell if there's a
little 'key' icon showing on the speedo cluster during the 'lamp check'
Otherwise, any duplicate key will start it.

You gotta be kidding. That's pretty ridiculous, all right.
