How do I program a 2009 Honda Accord Key?

My brother sold me his 2009 Honda Accord on the cheap. While the car itself is in tip-top condition, he told me that I need to program the key. How can I program a 2009 Honda Accord key?

That’s a nice gesture from your brother and you get to reap all of the benefits! If you want to program a 2009 Honda Accord key, use these step-by-step instructions:
  1. Make sure all doors are closed and unlocked.
  2. Put the key into the ignition and turn it to the on position.
  3. Press and hold the lock button for one to two seconds.
  4. Turn the ignition off.
  5. Turn the ignition back to the on position.
  6. Press the lock button on the key. The doors should lock and unlock, which indicates that you’re in programming mode.
  7. Within five seconds of the doors locking and unlocking, press the lock button again. The doors should lock and unlock again.
  8. Turn the ignition off and remove the key.
This should program a 2009 Honda Accord key. If it doesn’t, you may need a new battery for your key fob. If a battery change doesn’t work, take your car to a Honda dealership to see if they can help.
