Ciao r tutti,
I am looking at a very nice '99 2.0 Accord (Exec. auto hatch) at the
moment. The seller says it only came with two (black) keys & one blipper.
I have rung two honda dealers. One says "that's right" the other says it
should have two blippers, two black keys & a security key as well.
Also, apparently new keys/blippers are a "dealer only job" as "rolling
code" keys can only be coded to the car by a dealer. Truth or b.s.?
Thanks in advance

Stock should be 2 "blippers", 2 "master" keys (black and thinner), and
1 valet (ignition and doors only, grey and thicker) key.
"Blippers" (quaint...) No, these not are a dealer-only matter. Over
here in the new world, we get them off of eBay per the FCC ID number.
The radio part works OK - the cases are really cheap and fall apart
after a couple of years. Each one has a unique serial number and the
receiver only stores a limited number of IDs (5?). Just like with the
smart keys, you have to program all of them at the same time, because
the ID table in the receiver(s) 1s/are wiped when you first start
programming. Specific instructions for programming the remotes and
keys can be found through Google.
Good luck -
PS - where in the UK are you located? I used to hang out around
Newbury and Milton Keynes years ago. Loved the place.... and the beer.
I don't remember if this model had the 'red' key which was essential to
allow the reprograming of additional keys or not. Suggest you look in
the owners manual. I also know that at some point, but I think it was
after 1999 but can not remember, you may be able to unlock the car with
a key, but if you do not use a blipper the alarm will sound when you try
to drive away. So if two of you are using the car, 2 blippers is a
must. Again check the manual
