Just bought an used Honda CRV 2000. I was not aware of the antitheft
system and made a duplicate key. When I tried to turn on the car
didn´t work. DOing some research I found about the antitheft system. I
can turn on the ignition if I put the original key close to the
duplicate one. My BIG problem, I cannot pull out the duplicate key from
Any ideas on what to do??
I'm guessing you're not in USA or Canada? This stuff is all in your
owner's manual. . . . . You will have to just wiggle and wiggle that key
until it comes out. You may have to turn the steering wheel a bit to
release the key, or even stick another key into the SHIFT RELEASE slot
and put the whole thing in NEUTRAL to make key extraction easier. For
help with immobilizer systems, see all the TSB's at
Look in each model of Honda, since there are similarities.
I’d take it to a dealer before you do any permanent costly damage
All keys are chipped and need to be done by a specialist
