Late-model Honda Civics are equipped with keyless entry technology that allows you to control the locks on your car from many feet away by pushing a button on your key chain. If you lose your remote control key fob or need additional remote-control key fobs for your Civic's keyless entry system, you can program new ones at home. Be aware, though, that when the car enters programming mode for the remotes, it will erase any existing remotes from the system memory. So program every remote you want functioning on the system at the same time.

Skill level:

Things you need

  • Honda Civic ignition key
  • Keyless entry remotes

  1. 1

    Sit in the Civic's driver seat. Close the doors, then pull back on the door lock button to make sure all of the doors are unlocked.

  2. 2

    Insert the key into the ignition, then turn it to the "on" position (do not start the engine). Press the "Lock" or "Unlock" button on the new remote. Turn the ignition key off, then back on.

  3. 3

    Press "Lock" or "Unlock" on the new remote. Cycle the ignition key to off, then back on. Press the "Lock" or "Unlock" key on the remote again, then cycle the ignition key one more time.

  4. 4

    Press "Lock" or "Unlock" on the keyless entry remote. Listen for the door locks to engage and release. Press the "Lock" button on every remote you are adding to the system, up to three remotes. Listen for the door locks to cycle in between each entry, confirming the programming.

  5. 5

    Turn the ignition key off. Remove the key from the ignition.
