Programming a Honda Remote-Head Key (aka “Keyhead” Remote)

We have many customers who need a replacement part for their Honda remote-head key because the remote transmitter no longer works. In some cases, it is possible to replace the transmitter and program it without needing help from a dealership or automotive locksmith.

What makes this possible is that, in several of the most common Honda keyhead parts, the transponder for the anti-theft features of the vehicle is placed in a slot in the case, separate from the transmitter sub-assembly. For these parts, if one needs to replace a non-working transmitter, he or she can buy a new part and then just move the transmitter component from the new part to the old part. In that way, the original key features (blade and transponder) are preserved. The new transmitter is user programmable with the working key, so a customer would not need programming assistance from a third party.

An example of this situation is Remotes Unlimited part 637-1637, used on 2003 2004 2005 2006 and 2007 Honda Accord vehicles.

If you do this, we suggest you keep the remainder of your new keyhead part for the future. If you ever break the blade on your old key, you can move the transmitter component back into the new case and use that part.

Houston Flooding

Remotes Unlimited is based in Stafford, Texas, just outside of Houston. Hurricane Harvey has been decimating our area for several days now and the end is not yet in site. This has caused us to close for business until parcel shipping companies again begin operations and our employees can safely make it into work. We regret the inconvenience to customers and our thoughts and wishes for good luck go out to all of our employees and their families during this difficult time.

Programming a Remote Key Fob with FCC ID H5OT21

A blog reader contacted us for help programming the system in his 2005 RAV4 that uses a remote keyfob with FCC ID H5OT21. This FCC ID is only associated with aftermarket alarm and remote start systems, so his Toyota dealer had installed this system on the vehicle. Consequently, remote transmitter part and programming information for the factory-installed keyless entry system used on 2005 RAV4 vehicles is irrelevant. Here is our response:

There were several different remotes with FCC ID H5OT21. You can see them at the following link:
Remotes with FCC ID H5OT21

They were used on a variety of aftermarket alarm systems marketed by AutoPage and Code Alarm under the names Alert, Guardian and Marksman in addition to AutoPage and Code Alarm. All of these systems are user programmable. Remotes Unlimited can assist with programming any of these systems. We do charge for that service if you have not purchased a remote from us. To get assistance, call us at 281-820-0300 (M-F 9am-5pm Central time) and choose option 3 for tech support.

To complete programming, we need to know the model of the system. You can determine this by finding the control module (receiver) in your vehicle. It is usually located under the dashboard on the driver side. Also, the procedure uses the valet (shut-off) switch for your system, so you may want to be sure that component is working before you call us. (We do sell valet switches if you need one.)

Toyota Port-Installed or Dealer-Installed Keyless Entry Remote Key Fob with FCC ID ELVATDC

A site visitor recently inquired about a replacement remote for his 2003 Toyota Tundra truck. As it turns out, his vehicle did not have a factory keyless entry system; instead, it had a Toyota port-installed system that originally used a remote with FCC ID ELVATDC on the back.

Prior to the years when factory keyless entry systems became standard equipment on nearly all new vehicles, Toyota often added port-installed or dealer-installed alarm/keyless entry systems to vehicles for the benefit of North American customers who wanted the security or convenience of a system.

Through the years, these add-on systems used a number of different remote transmitters, one of which was a 3-button keyfob with a red LED light and the FCC ID ELVATDC on the back. That remote is no longer made, but Toyota does offer a newer remote that replaces it. That keyfob is Remotes Unlimited part 092-6435, which looks similar but has a green LED light and FCC ID ELVATDD.

You can see and purchase the new remote at this link:
RUI part 092-6435

This remote is user programmable.

Replacement Cool Start (CrimeStopper) Remote Key Fobs with FCC ID M65TX605

We had two blog comments this week asking about older Cool Start alarm/keyless entry/remote start systems that used remote transmitters with FCC ID M65TX605. CrimeStopper – the marketer of Cool Start systems – made two key fobs with FCC ID M65TX605. CS-TX33 is a 5-button remote with lock, unlock, remote start, shift and flashlight buttons. CS-TX34 is an identical remote transmitter except that it also has a trunk button. You can see both parts at the following link:
Cool Start (CrimeStopper) Remotes with FCC ID M65TX605

CrimeStopper ceased making these parts some time ago. Remotes Unlimited does still have a limited supply of the 6-button part – Remotes Unlimited part 772-1772 – but the new parts in inventory are not expected to last long. We also have several B-grade 772-1772 remotes in stock. B-grade remotes are gently used remotes that have been tested and given a fresh battery. (Note that Remotes Unlimited often has B-grade keyfobs in stock even when our website shows only a new part in stock or shows no part in stock.)

Do not despair if our website shows both of the M65TX605 remotes as out of stock because, in addition to B-grade 772-1772 key fobs in stock, Remotes Unlimited also has a newer CrimeStopper/Cool Start remote in stock that will work in place of the old remotes with FCC ID M65TX605. That is Remotes Unlimited part 071-6497 with FCC ID Q6WBT4123. Even though this keyfob is made by a totally different manufacturer for CrimeStopper and has a different FCC ID, it will replace the older parts CS-TX33 and CS-TX34. It will operate all functions of the old 5-button and 6-button remotes except that it does not have an LED flashlight as the parts with FCC ID M65TX605 did. You can see and purchase Remotes Unlimited remote 071-6497 at the following link:
RUI part 071-6497 with FCC ID Q6WBT4123

The Cool Start alarm and remote start systems that use any of these remote key fobs are all user programmable for adding a new remote. Remotes Unlimited includes programming instructions and free phone technical support with purchase.
