You do not need to loose one of your keys.

You can buy a $30 Key transponder bypass for the honda. This will learn the code for your key and will send the signal to the Ignition/ECU to allow the remote start.

If that doesn't work, go to your dealer and buy a key. Do not get it re-keyed. U will need this key for your remote start. But first, you will need to re program it and learn the codes of your element.

You will also need a universal key transponder bypass module. Your new key will be inside this module, tucked and hidden under the dash somewhere.

The reason I said to not get your new key re-keyed is just in-case someone finds it, they cannot use it to start your vehicle.
