My wife has a 06 civic ex that is still under warranty and I am having issues with my key. Most of the time the passanger door will not unlock. I tried to change the battery in the key but the screw will not come out. The screw head is stripped.

Will Honda replace the key under warranty?

Thanks,
Mike

Mine came with 2 keys, maybe you can try the other one if you still have it. If not, give the dealership a call and see what they say.

Yeah it does have 2 keys plus the valet. My wife has the other. The problem is not that we do not have keys it is that the one that I have is not working properly. I want to try to get it replaced under warranty. I was wondeing if anyone knows if the keys are covered under the 3yr/36k warranty. I am not sure if they will not replace it since the screw is stripped. I used the correct size screw driver and it would not budge.

It was just a suggestion to isolate the problem to the one key. I'm not sure on the warranty coverage though.

I would call them and ask. If it's still in the warranty period then I would think they would fix it. Maybe it got some condensation or liquid of some kind in the circitry and it's making it act funny. I guess it could be low battery too but that damn screw is stripped!

Good info av911, thank you.

But this contradict what Mikehenryjr said. He said his key does not unlock the passenger door but his wife's one does.

I am screwed as well. I am trying to replace the battery in my key but I can't open it do to the screw had being stripped. I went to my local dealership and they weren't able to open the key either and told me I would have to buy a new key (around 200 bucks) :(
