Default How do you replace a Honda key with a chip?

this is an old 1998 Honda accord but it has a security chip, and I lost the key, and the dealer told me, the only way to make another key or replace the lost key is to tow the car to the dealership, and have the hook the car to the computer, so they can make a new key, no one else can make the key.

I think its stupid, why have a chip, where you have to tow your car to just replace the key?

is there any other way I could make the key or fix this stuff? otherwise it gonna cost me at least $300 to tow this and make a key.

well he is saying, with the vin, he can make a key to open the doors if you got lockout, but if you lost the key and want to be replaced, you have to tow the car

An automotive locksmith can do it where the car sits. You can find one near you with the website below.
