replacement key - ireland, japanese import
Thanks for this great forum, i was hoping for help with a question;
I bought a 2011 insight, probably similar to the ex model in the US. alloy wheel, AC, keyless entry and start, internavi, reverse camera.
It only came with one key fob with the key slotted into it. I would like to have a second key, i can get one cut for about 80 euro but when i took the key i have out of the fob, it opens the door but does not start the car.
With the keyless start there is a knob on the ignition. I had driven a honda fit that looked like this knob had been removed. There is no obvious way to remove this knob and i don't want to break it, but i don't want to spend 80 euro on a key that will do nothing other than open the door.
When I try and turn the knob with just the key in the car it simply doesn't move, feels like it locked.
Anybody know how to take this off, or how to otherwise start the car with just the key and not the fob?
