Default lost my key to 05 honda civic?

only had one key and its gone. is there anyway without hot wiring it to still drive it? i was told by the locksmith that my key has a chip in it so i have to go to a honda dealership to get a new one, is there a cheaper way to get a key?

The locksmith is right. Having a key cut will only allow the ignition to turn, but won't actually start the vehicle. I had lost my key to my 2004 Civic as well, and had to take it to the local Honda dealer so they could program the key. I hope i've been help to you.

no there is no way to hot wire and no cheaper way to get a key... what you can do is call the dealer and they should have the key code in the honda network...they can cut the key and that will get the door open but it will not start the car...then you will need to have the car wreckered to the that they can reprogram the key...keep in mind that when they reprogram the key if you find your old key will no longer work if you find them later on...good luck.

Ridiculous! I would charge $175-$195 I program them all the time, that locksmith should AT LEAST be able to refer you to another locksmith that can help, the Honda stealership will not be gentle.
