Honda Accord - Key Not Working

The shell on my Honda Accord started cracking so I purchased a new one. I have done it before but this time when I went to the car to start the car fires up, but then after a few seconds the car just dies. Then I notice there is a Green Key icon lit up in the dashboard.

This is the only key that I have. Does anyone know what the problem is and how to fix it?

There is a chip in the old case that needs to be transferred to the new case.
Usually you pull the board out of the old case and put it in the new case.
The chip should be on the board.

If you've purchased a new self contained fob..... it will need to be learned into the cars BCM.
If that is the case.... post all details of the car. Year and body style.

I know the chip you are talking about. I may have saved it or I may have thrown that away.

If I ended up throwing that chip away or cannot find it now (since I have moved), what are the next options for me to fix the key?

I have a 2012 Honda Accord 4 Door Sedan

Dealer or locksmith with proper tool will have to mate key and BCM. Your vehicle security system shuts down fuel pump.

If that fob is missing the chip..... it's useless. You'll need to get another one. It will need to be cut for the car and programmed. You can program the remote to the car but not the transponder chip. That could be done by a locksmith.

In order to save a lot of hassle..... it is easier to go to a local locksmith, buy the fob and have him program it. It will be less than the dealer and done right.
