Rekeying ignition and door locks.

Anyone with experience in this have any idea how much rekeying and refobbing an S2000 would cost? I am talking about doors, trunk, ignition and all new fob. Yes, I plan to call the local dealerships also, but am starting here. And maybe the CFLHonda guy can chime in. Or Glenn the EyeCellEm guy has some suggestions.

So.... forum, I place this quandry at your collective doorsteps and ask for your input.

The explanation why is a freaking soap opera straight out of a LifeTime TV program so I'll not bore you with the ridiculousness of it right now. For now, let's stick to the topic at hand.

I need your help and ya'll have always come through for me before.

if you pull all the cylinders yourself, you'll save alot of money.

if you have somebody else do all the work, I'm gonna make a guess and say between $700-$800

Hoiw about this idea, Typerman parts out cars, can you get a set from a totaled car, including the fob and switch it out yourself, not sure what would be involved with reprogaming the fob, or changing out the mechanisim that the fob controls.

Whatever I end up doing, it needs to be a righteous deal. Half measures will not suffice.

ouch, if you want it done right probably dealer is the best place. it'll cost you an arm and a leg but better to get it done there and be sure it'll get done right rather than somewhere else where a million other things could go wrong and somehow warranty will be voided.

Rmurphy where ever you end up buying the hardware you will have to take it to the dealer to program the engine immobilizer chip in your keys. You can buy and program a fob yourself, very easy to do, doesn't have to be from a dealer. It will kick out any other fob when pairing two to the car. My suggestion have the keys/locks done at a dealership, might save you a headache from someone messing up the job.







ps: you need a friend at a dealership, unfortunately I'm 350 miles away.

One still has to try to see the humor in things even when it's very obscure and you don't feel much like laughing.

Gotta be done by the owner of the vehicle if done at a dealership with proof of ownership. Prevents someone from stealing your vehicle.

You wouldn't want the guy to bend any rules.

It would appear the situation is somewhat handled so let's try not to lose any more sleep over this. Leastwise, that is what I will be doing tonight. Some minor follow up needed, but I'm thankful it's mostly a non-issue.

Goodnight all and thank you to everyone. Your support and compassion, both near and far, is much appreciated.

Y,
R.

You should be able to use your current stock for other clients...
But they are also requiring a good locksmith perform the rekeys...I can't wait to see how this plays out.But when Plantation Locksmith came and rekeying in about 15 minutes i was surprised really.

Yes Locksmith can be used for the door locks also. there is another diy on how to fix door locks that unlock with any honda key somewhere. But nothing can be done with it.Locksmith is the best option for the door locks.

We recode the door locks at work but Honda does not want us recoding ignition switches due to liabilities. We can order a complete matching lock set but it is expensive. A mobile automotive locksmith is your best and cheapest bet.

Yeah a Mobile automotive Locksmith can replace those ignition switches easily. Dealer cost you much more so prefer always the Locksmith for such issues.

Yes locksmith can't operate the ECU for that you must contact the dealership.

I never thought of that , then contacting the dealer instead of locksmith is the best option, according to me.

This is the most important thing to notice down that that if you replace the lock and key with the help of locksmith, how you will be able to deal with ECU.

So we have a bunch of spammers (more than likely one person) posting ads for locksmiths?

According to you? What makes you a specialist in anything other than spamming?
