Can I locksmith make a key to my Honda by Vin?2021-04-28T14:39:11+00:00

Yes. Actually, a locksmith would order the key cuts for your car by Vin.

A: That depends on the year of manufacture of your car and the type of key you had.

The VIN gives dealers or automotive locksmiths the option of accessing the key code on file – i.e., to cut you a replacement key by code which makes the process
very fast and easy. There are however two things to consider:
1. For vehicles older than 10 years: Honda dealers don’t keep a record for vehicles older than 10 years. An automotive locksmith is therefore your only option
to get a replacement key.
1. For vehicles equipped with a transponder system and/or a remote/intelligent key/fob key: Codes are available. However, as coding is required, you will have
to either tow the car to the dealer, or have an automotive locksmith come and code the key on site.
