How Honda Key Security Functions
Hondas have a great reputation for a good quality car that lasts. This is also why it has been reported as one of the most stolen cars in the past. To deter thieves, most late model Honda vehicles come equipped with an immobilizer ignition system that requires a remote transponder key to start the vehicle. The immobilizer system is designed so that the car’s computer (PCM) reads a signal from the key. The computer has been programmed with the signal all the valid keys generate. If the signal from the key is not in the list of valid codes the car computer has, then the car will not start and the car is disabled. There is also the Honda Smart Entry System which uses a keyless entry and ignition system. As you approach your car, the car and the Smart Entry remote communicate and if you touch the door handle the doors unlock. Once you enter your vehicle, the Smart remote sends a signal that allows you to just push a start button on the dashboard to start the vehicle. The Honda Smart Entry also has neat features like the fact you cannot lock your Honda Smart Entry remote in the car. The doors will not lock if the car senses the remote in the car or trunk. The Smart Entry remote also generates a new random code after each use. This minimizes the ability of someone to grab your code since it changes every time. However these new smart remotes are very costly to replace.
What If You Get Locked Out of Your Car?
If you don’t have a Honda with the Smart Entry system then you can lock your keys in the car. This is one of the most frustrating things that can happen and you can be assured it will never happen at a good time. Sometimes it can be a minor inconvenience while at other times it can put you in a dangerous situation. In the old days, with a coat hanger, a little time and a little luck, you could get back into your car. If you tried that today you would trigger the alarm and possibly disable the car’s ignition system. Car door locking electronics are more complex and have sophisticated security systems tied into their operations. Newer cars also have their trunks designed to be more secure than the passenger compartment. Which is great news if you want to secure your valuable things but not such good news if you lock your keys in the trunk. You could call the dealership, if they are open when it happens, and they will send a tow truck. The towing company will send a truck when they can. This will be very costly and very time consuming.
