Seattle Honda Automotive Locksmith
Honda ignition problems have been prevalent since Honda changed their conventional cut keys to high-security key (also known as laser cut keys) in 2002. Before 2002 Honda used a standard key that is cut on both sides that can be copied by a conventional key cutting machine, like in a hardware store. The change to the high-security key was brought by the fact that Hondas were one of the most stolen cars in America. In 1998, Honda introduced a microchip that was embedded into the key to prevent any unauthorized users from starting the car. Upon detecting a foreign object or incorrect key the Immobilizer systems cuts the fuel delivery to the engine. In 2002, Honda upgraded to the high-security laser cut key with a microchip embedded in it to prevent any attempt to steal the vehicle.
