Default need a key copy for my s2000

so i recently bought a s2k and it was a pretty good deal at a dealer ship

but they just had one master key.
no door lock/unlock from a remote or anything.

just one key... so i need at lest another key just in case i lose the key i have now.

so does anyone know where i can get another copy?
does any honda dealer ship work? and how much do they charge?

go to home depot and they can copy it for you for $49.00, and that because you have transponder key. but that price is nothing compared to how much the dealer would charge you

my friend went to lows and they said they can copy it but it could mess
up the key and it wont work because theres some kinda computer chip?

I had a key made at the dealership here in Springfield, MO and within 10 minutes, done. $22.55 plus tax (1.54), total $24.09.

I would trust the dealership for this one.

If Homedepot / Lowes won't do it for you...call a local lock smith. If they can't do it, they might recommend somebody to you.

i was in the same situation when I bought my car. Locksmith recommended a guy who actually does the work out of his van (so he can come to you)...and it cost about 50 or 60 bucks.

This was in Southern California. But I'm sure most decent sized cities have somebody out there exploiting the fact that dealerships want to charge an arm and a leg.
