key/start problems

Asked by Jun 12, 2015 at 09:42 AM about the 2003 Honda Accord

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

The key to my '03 Honda Accord broke off from the fob,, I couldn't turn the car off
completely because I couldn't get the key out,, I unhooked the battery to keep the
battery from running down,, I realized I only had to push the key in to turn the car off
completely,, I re-hooked the battery now the car turns over but won't actually start,, did
I blow a fuse? The car has power, ie, the dash lights come on, the windows roll down,
etc. Please advise,,thank you

Most likely they key has a chip in it. Have a new key made and you should be good to go.

Take a paper clip, straighten it out then just barely bend the very end of it into a slight hook, then slide it carefully into the key slot and try to hook the broken key and pull it out.
