This is very good news. ASP (a lock manufacturer) is now offering a Honda ignition lock cylinder to locksmith suppliers. So far it covers the Accord, Element 03-11, CRV, Fit 07-11, Odyssey 05-10 and Pilot 05-08. This means that we're no longer stuck buying the entire steering column lock assembly, to the tune of about $290 to $350. It is just the core of the lock, the part I show being removed and repaired in my "key won't turn" thread. It's also cheap enough for me to have no problem keeping them in stock at all times so the job isn't dragged out over days waiting for parts to arrive and at a more reasonable price. If you are in a situation where you have to have yours replaced, bring this up to the locksmith, I would hope they would entertain the idea and not insist on charging upwards of $500 to fix these anymore.
