My 2007 CRV's key housing broke. The remote functions work fine, but the point at which the metal key fits into the plastic housing broke. I put some Gorilla glue to hold it together, but it came loose again after a couple of months. I guess I need to go to the dealer to sell me a new key and program it to unlock the car? What is the typical cost -- wanted to get a ball park before I go to the dealer.

Maybe give a shot at using J-B Weld before caving in to a new key !! I think you can buy the blank housing on Ebay and have a dealer cut it to match your key !! Then you can use the remote part in the new blank (I'm assuming you can take it apart) !! Craig

Just tape it and call it good lol. Otherwise you're looking to spend close to $300 for a new key. At least that's what VW wanted to charge me when I still owned VW vehicles.

I'd bite the dealer bullet for the daily use key.
Then repair the broken casing as best as possible and use that as the back up.

Anymore a locksmith can replace those keys. I would try finding a locksmith that can do it first. I would think it would be cheaper than the dealer.

Depending on your
Ovation a new key from Honda is roughly $55 plus cut and programming.
That is pretty cheap really. A lot cheaper than what I had thought. My wife has a domestic car and she lost one of the keys and if I remember correctly the dealer wanted a couple hundred. We ended up finding the key in a coat that never gets worn.

Thanks for the input. I will call the dealer tomorrow to get a replacement and find out if it is 100 or 300. The car is valet parked about 5-6 times a month when I head into the city. I don't want the valet guy to break the key off in the lock and leave me stranded late at night.
