  • Hold your thumb right above where the battery is located.

How to Program Honda Key

Once you’ve put in the new Honda key fob battery replacement, you need to learn how to program a Honda key to get it in sync with your vehicle for your Troy travels. See how this is done in a few simple steps:

  1. Enter the cabin, securely shut all doors, and have your key and fobs to be programmed ready.
  2. Insert the key and turn to the “On” position. Press and hold the “LOCK” button for one second.
  3. Release the button and turn the key to the “Off” position. Repeat this process twice more.
  4. Turn the key to the “On” position and hold the “LOCK” button on the key fob for one second. Wait for the doors to lock and unlock automatically. Once the locks have cycled, your vehicle is in remote programming mode.
  5. Once again hold the “LOCK” button for one second. Once the locks cycle, the key fob has been successfully paired with your vehicle. Repeat the process with any additional fobs that need programming.
