Did you loose your 2nd key as well if it was there, is that what you mean?
Yes, Honda comes with 2 keys, one with the remote and the other normal one. Both have RFID tags in them. The issue with Paul is that he has lost one key and for safety sake (as advised by everyone), needs to change the entire locks. This means not only the door but also the ignition lock. And this is why the cost has escalated.
If he wanted another duplicate key, it would have been Rs.4000/- only which I think is more or less standard now. The dealer would take a blank key, cut the grooves and then program the embedded RFID chip.
With changing the whole set however he will get an entire new set of keys and his old keys will be useless.
