What the hell is this red key in the plastic case for?

The dealership sent it to me, said it was something special.

But reading the back of the case, I can't figure out what the hell it is for.

Anyone know?
 
Apparently it is a "learning" key for your ignition- you need it if you want to get new keys made. Find more topics and read about it HERE

I did a search... :biggrin:

Well, the sig on his post says it's a 2005, and his username is SilverStone05. Let me think about it, I'm sure I can come up with a good guess if I put my mind to it... :D
 
It's a "learning key" that you'll need if you ever want to register replacement keys with the cars' immoblizer system (if you need to replace lost/stolen ones, etc).

Whatever you do, DO NOT try to start your car with the red key. According to Honda, it'll wreck all kinds of havoc on the immoblizer system, right up to needing to replace the immoblizer system hardware. None of our customers have done this yet, and we're not too willing to try it just to find out what happens :wink:
 
Thanks...i'm not going to touch the thing....I put it in the glovebox because thats about the only thing that will fit in there. :wink:
 
I don't think I would store it in the glove box.......to tempting for someone at sometime to put it in the ignition to see what happens. I would keep it at home in your organized, tabbed out, car file-folder. Everyone has one of those right??????

Well...I'm the only person who drives my NSX, so I don't think that mistake will be made. Hell, i'll barely let anyone in there with me. Ha, I make girls take off their shoes when they want me to take it out.
 
What about the thief who breaks into your car when parked, happily finds the key in the glove box, then of course tries to start the car with it (succeeding in possibly stealing it or ruining the immobilizer system, or maybe even both!).

To which Grouco Marx asked;

"What do they take off when they want you to put it in?"
