Nice that is a really cheap option to do this! Thanks for posting this.I cut the key @ local Honda dealer. they charge $30 for the labor fee.
The keyfob case is purchased from ebay. It is just a case, nothing more. I took the driver#1 key and disassembled it. Took out the remote part and put it in the case. It's direct fit.
However, believe or not, transponder doesn't get close enough to pass the Immobilizer. It seems I have to take the transponder out and move it to the edge of the case.
Is this a good deal? Looks like he does everything for you for 124. I sent him an email.Just wanted to chime in here...
I've been checking FCC IDs and doing a lot of research...
The '09, '10 Acura TSX flip has the same transponder as our Crosstour remotes.
It has a trunk release button, but a replacement faceplate from the RDX remote will fix that.
It's a $$ solution, but it would mean a genuine Honda/Acura OEM part. (I've ordered the Ebay solution pictured in this thread, and I'm staring at it wondering if I want to take my chances)
Part # 35113-TL0-A00
(That is for Driver 1, For Driver 2 replace the last bit with "A10")
It's $177 from the Honda eStore, but I've found it for $100 if you shop around online.
RDX Faceplate replacement
Part # 35118-STK-A01
That will run about $12
You would have to get it cut and programmed at the dealer, and I've heard quotes for this anywhere between $35-$90.
If I decide to pull the trigger and go for this (which I'm sure I will eventually... I may wait for pay day) I'll keep everyone updated.
Here is a picture of the Acura Flip Key (right) I'm hotlinking to from another forum. It should give you an idea of what it's like:
That key WILL NOT work with our Crosstours.Is this a good deal? Looks like he does everything for you for 124. I sent him an email.
