How to Reprogram an Ignition Key for the Honda Odyssey

by Matthew Fortuna

The ignition key on the Honda Odyssey is a common technology that can be synced to your ignition in just seconds from your driver's seat. It takes no special equipment to program the electronic key, which syncs to your engine, allowing you to start your car automatically. Once you program one key, only a synced can be used to start your car.

Enter your car and insert your key into the ignition.

Turn the key "On," press the Lock button on the remote and turn the key back to "Lock."

Repeat the previous step two more times and cycle it back to the "On" position after the third cycle.

Press the "Lock" button on your remote, wait for the locks to automatically cycle and turn the key to the "Lock" position to end the programming.
