We just purchased our 2005 CR-V. It came with only one key. The remote keyless entry transponder type. So we ordered two blanks from ebay (could have been the mistake). When we took it to have it cut and programed we were told that it is stamped with an "R" and we need one stamped with and "F". The ebayer doesn't know of the two kinds of keys. Does anyone know about the two different kinds of keys and where we can find "F" keys?

try on the internet, type in "honda crv blank keys stamped with F" or something to that effect and a few sellers will come out.

You should be able to take your key to the dealer and have copies made with no problems using their blanks.

You probably bought key blanks that have no stored transponder codes, that's why they won't work. Is there a number or letter stamped on the shank of the keys that you bought? And what is stamped on the orginal key that came with the vehicle?

The original key is stamped F. The blanks are R.

Have you tried the dealer? I'm sure there are probably wanting alot, but it takes a special machine to cut these keys and then there's the transponder inside the key that needs programmed. I believe HondaTech explains this on another thread relating to this same issue.
