I lost my 2 keys for honda civic 1998. I have 1 spare keys for honda civic 1998 which opens the door. Will the same keys be useful to start the car ?
My car has an automatic transmission.

Hello, It may or may not. I would say no but you can try to do it and it could work. If it does just continue to use it. You could also call your local locksmith which will be able to make a key on the spot for your ignition.

You will most likely have to have the ignition lock cylinder replaced. Have a trained technician, like one from YourMechanic, properly replace the ignition cylinder. You will get to use the original key in most cases.
