Aykew is right, all new Hondas are coming with the Immobilizer system. There is indeed a computer type chip in the key. That is why you need to go back to the dealer to get an additional key made. :cry:

Place to hide a key....well, I had a friend how was a locksmith. He used to recommend that people screw the key behind the license plate. He used to say that not everyone had a coat hanger in their car when they stopped to help you if you got locked out, but almost everyone has a screwdriver.

Now I don't know if this will work the way the newer keys are made, being much fatter than the old standard keys, but it is worth thinking about.

It is much easier to screw off a license plate screw than to break a window :D
