A new keyless remote and programming for my Honda Odyssey

Posted By on July 12, 2020

The Keyless Remote on my 2002 Honda Odyssey stopped working this past year and figured it was just a dead battery. Unfortunately after replacing the battery … twice …and confirming that my other remote still worked, I gave up and ordered one.

ProgramHondaRemotes200709After searching the Internet for fixes and replacements, I opted for one on Ebay from yourkeylessremote.com. The service was good (one week to ship) and everything was packaged professionally and it was factory-looking-new remote … and even came with a battery. The company packed it with a small note with coupon code discount, email address and phone number .. but I never needed them. (let me know if you need the coupon code).

The trickier part was reprograming the remotes … you have to do all at the same time. Even after reading a few posts on the  Honda Ody forum, it was a little challenging (could be just me?) After finally getting both remotes re-programmed and confirmed, everything seems to be working just fine again.

So for $10, you too can have a new keyless remote – not a bad deal if you ask me. 

Step-by-Step Programming Instructions:

  1. ENTER the vehicle and CLOSE all doors. (Each of the following steps must be completed within five seconds of one another. If you take longer than five seconds between steps or make a mistake, you must start the entire procedure over.)
  2. INSERT the key into the Ignition, HOLD one remote in your left hand with additional remotes close by.
  3. PERFORM each of the next three (3) steps in order, then repeat all three (3) steps two (2) more times for a total of three (3) times each.
  4. TURN the Ignition to the ON position, marked “II” on the Ignition.
  5. PRESS the LOCK button on the remote for approximately 1 second. (Say “Mississippi”)
  6. TURN the Ignition to the OFF position, marked “I” on the Ignition. (REPEAT Steps 4-6 three (3) times)
  7. TURN the Ignition switch to the ON position, marked “II” on the Ignition.
  8. PRESS the LOCK button on the same remote. The door locks should cycle indicating the vehicle has ENTERED Programming Mode.
  9. PRESS the LOCK button again on the same remote. The door locks should cycle again indicating the vehicle has successfully PROGRAMMED that remote.
  10. For programming additional remotes to your vehicle, REPEAT Step 9 with each additional remote one after another. Step 9 must be completed within ten (10) seconds for each additional remote. You may program up to three (3) remotes to your vehicle.
  11. TURN the ignition to OFF.
  12. Test all remotes. Programming is now complete.
  13. After successful programming, if your remote has a TRUNK RELEASE Button — you will need to hold that button down for 5-10 seconds for that function to begin operation.
