Ive read so many pages here. Ill be purchasing the acura alarm 3button fob. My only concern. My 2011 element has the letter V stamped on it. Do i have to get an acura key with the letter V or will the keyblank that comes with the 07-12 rdx alarm work without me using the tl blank

I just purchased two acura rdx alarm keys and the key blank has the letter V. This is the same letter thats on my 2011 element key. I hope this means the correct transponder is in it. Im getting them cut today. Ill know tonight if all the buttons and keys work. Fingers crossed

So far the keys are cut and they start the car. I cant get the rdx alarm to lock and unlock. I wonder if i need the older 04-08 tl alarm key. Does it have a different frequency?

Ridgeline key/remote for me

First post. Just registered a new to me 2004 this morning! Also succeeded with adapting a 2010 Ridgeline key via the valet key transponder transplant method. The blank key cost me $20 on Ebay but had to pony up $50 to get it cut at a locksmith. Dealers were full of reasons why they couldn't cut an aftermarket blank. Very happy with the result. Thanks to the members who pioneered this mosd

Cheap Key Duplication Solution

Greetings, according to the web video below, if you have TWO original keys and one newly cut transponder key, you can skip the locksmith paid programming by using the car to program the key. Does anyone know if this works or is it BS? (see the very end for the programming part.) - Thank you.

May work on some cars but not in a honda.

I would be more convinced that what he did worked if he had shown the third key not starting the car before he "programmed" it.

What was your final verdict on the RDX keys? Do you have an OEM Number?

Just wasted $120 on cutting some keys that were the wrong FCC ID...

i was able to have my local ace hardware cut my key. they have one of the new machines for modern car keys. it was like $20 or $25. they said no guarantee, but i have had 2 keys cut with no issue.
the second key i got was a cheapo one from china. lousy spring but does the job.

Materials Needed:
35111-SEP-307: Acura TL Memory 2 Remote. Depending on which is cheaper, 35111-SEP-306 can also be used. 35111-SEP-306 is the Acura TL Memory 1 Remote
35113-S9A-A01: The Blank Honda Element Transponder Key
35118-STK-A01: Acura MDX Remote Faceplate: Optional, although I believe it makes the final product look a lot more clean

I'm confused. So if a donor transponder from an Element key is going to be placed into the Acura flip remote, why not just place it directly into a MDX/RDX 2-button remote? Instead of a TL remote then swapping for a MDX/RDX faceplate.

I'll probably only add to the confusion (and this is as a guy who does some RFID for a living...) I've tried to make sense of the various 'mods' being talked about here; I'm getting a little bleary-eyed.

Recently bought an '04 Element EX - with only one 'standard' key; I was given none of the other original (RFID-capable?) keys with the vehicle.

Security 'Module' in car reads:
FCC ID: OUCG8D-344H-B Omron
Canada: 850104449A
38385-S9A-A01 G8D-344H-B No. 273291

--------
So, hoping to make use of the remote lock/unlock/panic capabilities, in the form of a 'flip' key, I've found some MDX/RDX blank fllip keys on line with these specs:

FCC ID : N5F0602A1A
CHIP ID : 46

Would these keys work with my car, and be programmable with some in-the-car ignition on/off magical incantation foo, as I've used on other (Japanese) vehicles? Clearly, I'd have to get the metal blade blanks cut somewhere...

Related: Is it accurate that the lock/unlock circuit manages all locks on the car, including the rear gate, on one circuit? IE, that the 3-button key is the maximal granularity of control on these cars?

Apologies for bringing this out of its grave. Can I get a summary of the part numbers I need to make my ‘04 E work with a flip key? Thanks all!

I thought I would re-post the source for parts since they have been so helpful (and inexpensive). The memory 1 remote is currently $26.25.

Here is a link to Acura of Peorias eBay store: http://stores.ebay.com/ACURA-OF-PEORIA

Their phone number: 1-866-347-4510

You can also order the remotes directly from their website: Acura Dealer in Peoria AZ | Acura of Peoria | near Phoenix AZ you just need to know the part number since it doesn't come up on a keyword search (35111-SEP-306). I didn't see the RDX faceplate on their website, but if you call or order from eBay you can get one for (currently) $7.82.

EDIT: This is not the only place to get the keys, any Acura dealer can get them for you. Sorry if it seems like I am playing favorites, but my local dealer was charging almost three times as much for the same things.
Today, I ordered the TL remote and RDX faceplate from OEM Acura Parts/Acura of Peoria. Their prices are approximately 1/2 the cost of the local Acura dealers here. I also found a local Honda dealer to cut and re-program the key(s) for $50. Hope to have everything ready to go by next week.
So I know this thread is going on better part of 1.5 decades, but has anyone dealt/ordered with Acura of Peoria recently, specifically in their Parts department, to help out/order parts for this TL key mod?

Reason I ask is because I am kind of local to Phoenix area, and would prefer to deal with someone who has at least some prior experience with this entire process, instead of trying to figure it out from decade+ old threads.

I have 2006 LX. Thank you, from a bulging keys in pants.
