Hi guys,


I was lucky enough to get my grandma's 96 RL for my 27th birthday since she doesn't drive anymore, and it only has 44k miles. Its practically brand new, and I love it!


I do have a question though, she had her purse stolen about a year ago so she lost both sets of keys and both remotes. She never used the remotes so she only bought 1 replacement key so thats all I have now.


I found a few places to get replacement remotes, but I wanted to check to make sure these are correct before I order:

I would go to an Acura dealer,The remotes need to be programmed. Tell them what happened. WhenI lost my keys, the guy at the servicecounter had one in his drawer.He programmed it and gave it to me no charge.

Thanks for the advice. My local dealer was quick to start quoting prices to me, so I don't think a free remote is gonna come out of them. I tried doing some research and it doesn't seem like the RL had any Honda remotes that are interchangeable, like the Accord/TL in 99. The listing I found says programming instructions are included FREE with the order. Can anyone confirm the part number is correct and matches the remotes they have?

That sucks. Sorry they are trying to jam you. On the web the only site that I found a picture on is keylessride.com . The picture matches yours, but they didn't display a part number. They wanted 80 bucks + shipping. Hope you can find it cheaper somewhere else! Good Luck.[img]smileys/smiley1.gif[/img]

Here's the site I found...$34 is much cheaper than $80.


https://www.originalkeyless.com/disp...Document.hg?pr oductId=448


Can anyone confirm with their remotes if the numbers match up?

Does anyone have a factory remote for a 96-01 RL to check the FCC number to make sure its CWT72147KA ?


Thats what most of the sites I find show but I want to double check before I place an order. I've already noticed tiny nicks in the paint around the keyhole on my drivers door and trunk. Edited by: albygirl
