When dealing with Acura keys, we should understand that Acura has four different types of keys.
1. No chip keys – This is the old-style Acura keys made of metal and does not require any sort of programming. All you have to do is cut a key and it will be ready to start a car. These are the least expensive keys out there. They do not require your car to be present in order to be duplicated.
2. Transponder/chip keys – Mostly used on older Acura vehicles usually up to 2006. This is your typical key without buttons to lock and unlock and usually have a chip inside. These transponder keys are pretty easy to duplicate in case you need a spare key and are not expensive.
In most cases, Acura’s that have a regular transponder key – come in a bundle with a separate key fob or key remote which has either three or four buttons which include a lock/unlock, panic, and sometimes a trunk button.
Please be sure to specify how many buttons your remote has because we strive to provide you with the best service.
Keep in mind that in most cases – the car does not have to be present if you are looking to get a spare key made. We are also able to come to you if you lost all keys and program these keys with our special equipment.
