Here, xtool.co.uk runs through the process of programming a Honda City key, where the customer required a spare smart key.
The process was carried out in the following stages using the XTool A80 Pro with VCI box, which allows for programming without any dismantling of the vehicle.
All devices prepared:
XTOOL H6 Pro (same as XTOOL A80 Pro)
One original Honda City key
One new key need to be programmed
How to add new smart key?
Connect XTOOL VCI to the vehicle via main cable and connect to A80 Pro via Bluetooth
Enter “Diagnosis” function
Select “Immobilization” -> agree with the disclaimer
Select Honda-> Smart key system-> Type 3 (button)-> Add smart key
Then double click start button to confirm if the ignition can be switched on
It can turn on normally, so click “Yes” to continue
Follow the on- screen instructions to do as below:
- Take all smart keys (working key and blank key) out of the car
- Put 1 programmed smart key in the car
- Take smart key (original key) out of the car
- Put new smart key into the car
