    Valet key to make master key

    Recently I just lose a master key (black) for my car. I've been using my valet key (grey) since I bought it, I thought it would be better for me to drive with valet key. Now I need that master key to lock and unlock my trunk releaser and glove box when I store something valuable inside it. My car is 2000 Honda Accord EX. Is it possible to make a master key from a valet key? how much will it cost me to do so?

    nope..you'll have to get a key made using your VIN

    do you have AAA (or CAA if yer a Canuck)? They did it for me for free. Otherwise bring your VIN to a Honda dealersip and they'll do it for you. Be about $35 (USD)

    thats right, they cant make a copy of the valet key because it would just be another valet key and not the master one.
    so bring it back to Honda and the'll figure it all out for ya'

    They did one for you for free?? Making a master key from valet?

    I had AAA but I cancelled it since I already have Honda Care (including towing service) plus towing service from my insurance company and I thought it would be a waste.

    Maybe or maybe not. I needes another master key made for my 04 acura tsx and it set me back $50 usd. It really did not matter to me because I was moving and I needed it immediately.

    You need to go to a Honda dealer with 2 pieces of ID & your car's registration papers showing the VIN number and your name as the owner or lessor of the vehicle... the fee varies between dealerships, so call around if you want the best price.

    Here in Vancouver, keys are usually about $35-$75 CDN depending on the make and the dealership you go to.

    It can take as little as 20 minutes to 24 hours to several days to get your new key, also depending on the dealer, so again, call around if you need it done quickly.

    whats odd....is that on my old car..I had a key with a chip. But when AAA came out and cut me a new key it was just a plain metal key....no chip. And it worked fine?

    ^ I know if you have a chipped key within a certain distance, you can start your car with a plain metal key sometimes. Perhaps your key was inside your car or somewhere close?
