Honda has installed a new immobilizer (type 3) in there 02+ model cars. The immobilizer system has 4 parts: The key, immobilizer system indicator, immobilizer control unit, and ECM. All of these must be in place for the car to crank. The key is coded with a transponder id code. The immobilizer control unit is around the ignition switch. It uses an electromagnetic induction to power the transponder in the key. The key then sends its ID code to the control unit. Once received it is matched against the code in the receivers’ memory. If the code matches, the immobilizer will send a coded signal to the ECM allowing the car to crank. If it does not match it will not send a code and the car will not crank.

Let me know if you have any other questions.

Thanks,

Will
