  1. DIY master key?

    Do-It-Yourself / Mods

It took me a moment to realize what had happened, but turns out the ignition key was flicked backward from...

    Hello. So I have a 2003 Honda element. Which I love by the way! And I've noticed that some Honda owners have a key with the alarm door lock controls built into it. My element has a keyfob for the alarm & such. And the actual door lock / ignition key is separate. For the convenience of caring...

  9. Sorry, another keyless entry question from a noob

    Problems & Issues
    OK, so I just replaced my 1990 Olds Silhouette with a sporty (in comparison) 2004 E - I'm very excited of course. Now coming from a '90 to an '04 I've also got to come to grips with some of the tech bells and whistles. My main issue right now is the whole keyless entry stuff. Is there any...
