damn $60 for a key is a rip off!!! I got mine at the dealer for only $10-15. Or you can go even cheaper and take your extra copy to wal-mart or home depot to make copies for only like $1-2.

To get a new one, I believe you need to bring in the RED key so they can program you a new one.

Well, that should be ANOTHER reason why 5gen prelude drivers shouldn't misplace their keys...sheesh...but that's the price you pay for safety, i guess. *shrugs*

Bring in the red key to a Honda dealer and they will make a copy for you. For the alarm, they will reset it or something so that it erases the memory from before so if someone finds your keys and tries to jack your car they can't. The dealer will reset the system over again and store a new code or something in. Don't get a copy at like a Wal-mart type place...you'll mess up the car when you try and start it

But will the car even start with a wal-mart key or anything similiar to it or it must be a dealer key?!
