Hi Fellas!

I'm a fellow CR-V owner in need of help regarding a wrong key stuck on the ignition. We hauled it to the Honda dealer and after days of waiting and talking. Honda managed to say that our Key ignition has to be replaced including the door barrel lock and lock gate at the back. Sadly, today we got the news that the key set being used is DISCONTINUED and not available to be replaced.

I wonder if there are any 3rd Party or off-brand key ignition set including the doors that can fit the '04.

Managed to look up this one but I think it only includes the ignition:
rockauto.com/en/catalog/honda,2004,cr-v,2.4l+l4,1425518,ignition,ignition+lock+cylinder,10041

Can anyone have any recommendation/thoughts on this. Any help would be appreciated. :Darn:

FYI: I'm in the Philippines. :banana:

I had a problem with my Ridgeline when the key would not turn very easily - and it was getting worse.

The dealer quoted me $750 to change the barrel out, cut a new key and I would have two different keys for the truck.

On the Ridgeline Forums it was recommended to find a locksmith that had a specialist who works on cars.

Found one easily and the 'tumbler mechanism' was rebuilt for $85.00.

If you can get that key out and a 'new' key from eBay please consider that a trained locksmith can do a better job than your dealer - keys and locks are just NOT what they do best.

Good luck!

Thanks Man! I'll use this as a last resort just in case.

Thanks for the Idea. We managed to get a trained locksmith to remove the broken key today. Sadly, the ignition specifically the tumbler where the key resides got damaged by the tech/mechanics from Honda. Luckily the locksmith would be re-building the ignition by tomorrow and somewhere priced at $85ish... I'll keep you guys posted if it works once they placed the part on the 04'. Funny thing is the techs at Honda was watching the locksmith do the magic in less then 30 mins. :Hahaha:
