I'm still looking for a place in S. Cal that can mill and cut a Honda Accord key to work with a TSX.
Tried emailing HeelToe a couple times over the past couple weeks. No response. Is he still in business? I bought a pair of brake pads from him a while back and picked up from his house. He even showed me the Accord and TL switchblade keys. Probably should've just gotten it then....
Bump on this thread as I'm still hitting dead ends on finding someone to mill the key. Let me know if there are locksmiths or machine shops that can mill an Accord key (made for laser cutting) to be used with a '06 TSX (normal key).
Just realized you never confirmed if you had an Accord key cut for your TSX. Let me know what type of key you had cut. Searching online, it seems like most people went through HeelToe or FBLUSA and I'm not sure if either is still in business.
yea im trying to get a tl and accord key from marcus. i tried a used accord key and attempted to switch out the key blank, lets just say its hard to get the remote to hold the new key and close properly, nothing wanted to fit properly, it would really be worth buying these from marcus and trying to find a friend at a dealership to program it for you and hopefully cut it to a vin#
Our tsx uses basic key with a transponder. You can get it cut if you have a basic key. The laser key is unable to be cut and used as a basic key, the width and thickness of the laser key is completely different.
I'm a machinist, looks like they mill the thickness down to match, the width wouldn't hurt because the way our tsx keys are stepped down.
Marcus sells both the accord smart key and tl flip keys milled. I have the Honda/acura part number for both of these, as you can buy new keys online fairly cheap. The milling is what makes these expensive, most machine shops charge more per shop hour then Marcus is selling these for.
