Default Honda Accord Keyless Entry Remotes & Programming Instructions

What does your local dealer charge for Accord keyless entry remotes?

My Honda dealer wants $119 a piece plus $35 for programming for each of my cars (00 Accord EX, 99 Odyssey EX).

I'm curious to see what other dealerships are charging for new remotes and programming.

I'm done with ebay because the listings show new remotes, and 3 out of 3 times I've won - I end up with junk that doesn't work and won't program. First one was superglued together and cracked. Can't check the battery if you can't even open it. Second one was completely corroded inside from water and didn't work. The 3rd one only 1 button worked and it looked like someone tried to superglue the circuit board pieces back together. Each one was advertised as new, or like new and they obviously weren't anywhere close to that. The Keyles Ride site is run by one of those same lying ebay sellers, so thats off the list too.

What does your local dealership charge? I bet there's some that want even more than what mine is charging.

Hi New Member..
Looks like after trying the ole E-bay bull you have found out it's the dealership even if the cost is Higher..

You get what you pay for..Ive had to pay the dealer before and it saves Time, Money and Frustration...

Yeah, it was quite a headache with the ebay transactions. Are there any other sources besides ebay and the dealership for the factory remotes?

That's about what I shelled out for a new key for my 03 Accord. Thankfully Carmax paid for it. The dealership will cost more but you know you're getting a good product.

I found another site online that I'm willing to give a shot - www.ThePartsYouNeed.com

The other KR site wants about $75 a piece with shipping for the 00 Accord remote.

They're less than 1/2 that price on ThePartsYouNeed site with the instructions included. I ordered 1 this morning.

I'll keep you guys posted. If it works good, I'm going to order one for my Odyssey as well.

Yes please keep the forum informed on what happens with the Keyless entry from them.
I'm sure others in the room will need the same help sooner or later.

Oops, forgot to update...

I got my remote from ThePartsYouNeed.com in the mail yesterday. 5 days isn't bad especially when one was a Sunday.

Programming was easy, took about 10 seconds. I can't believe a dealership would charge 1/2 hour of labor for a 10 second job. Thats a good way to lose customers.

Anyhow, the remote works great and when I went to put in an order for remote for the Odyssey I noticed I got free shipping, so I bought a 2nd remote for the Accord and a pair for the van. FINALLY I will have remotes that work and that I can use.

ThePartsYouNeed.com rocks!

2 of the sellers got kicked off ebay now - Eagles_Wingz and Sunsetcoverd .

Looks like they took a bunch of money and ran by their feedbacks.
