Hi there. There are typically three things you can do to resolve this issue. First, you can have a professional mobile mechanic complete an ignition lock cylinder replacement. Second, you can contact your local Honda dealership to see if they are able to get you a new key. Third, a lot of locksmith’s have the capability to cut you a new key and program the key on site. Keep in mind the key may not have the keyless entry buttons, but it will start your car. Let us know if we can assist you with this.
