Q.Does a Acura have an immobilizer ?


*Principal of Operation:

A transponder chip is integrated in each of the vehicle keys. A ring coil is fitted about the ignition lock. The transponder chip is powered by this coil. This means that no battery is necessary in the key. The power supply and data transfer take place in the same way as a transformer between the loop antenna (coil) at the ignition lock and the transponder chip.

Q.Does Acura immobilizer requires programming ? 


Q.Can I program the key myself ? 

A.No, But with some older models you can program the remote portion yourself - it will not start the car but you will be able to use the lock, unlock and panic buttons, HERE is an instructional video on how to.
