Key Stuck in Ignition

Asked by Mar 07, 2016 at 11:52 AM about the 2003 Honda Accord LX

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Hi. I have an Accord 2003. Sometimes the key gets stuck in the ignition
system; while I insert the key to start or try to remove the key to stop engine.
Would you please suggest me how and where to repair this? How much it
might cost to repair? FYI, I am using the vallet key; since the dealer did not
give me the original one while I bought this used car.

You really should have a proper key and not just valet key. Stop off at a locksmith or local Honda dealer to get 2 new keys and have them cut and programmed.

Thank you. Would you please tell me how much it may cost approximately?

a properly programmed cut key and fob would be around $100-$200. Call around for your best price. When buying a used car I always make sure I get a set of 2 keys before I drive off the lot.

Thank you much!

But do you think this problem might be related with the valet key?

Run your VIN through a vehicle search engine on google or even better, call Honda USA Corporate offices and give them your year make model and VIN and have them check to see if your ignition was involved in the faulty ignition recall and if it was, ask them if it shows if your car was repaired or not.
