Re: Honda Help...Stalling Out!

Oh no, there was no mistaking it. That quote was meant soley for the replacement of the ignition. That and "the guts" as they put it. In fact, they mentioned that they wanted to use my old ignition switch, so that I would have the same key.

Re: Honda Help...Stalling Out!

Huh, I bet they must end up replacing the "inards," or "guts" of the existing ignition. That would be a little more pricey. It would probably involve a locksmith or at least expertise in that area. Still, what that warrant 7 bills, I don't think so. What's the hourly rate there? $100? more?
That makes a little more sense to me. I suppose we live in a society where people can't accept a little imperfection like a different key for the ignition than the door.
Then again, many of those people must not have driven old GM vehicles....

Re: Honda Help...Stalling Out!

yes, most stealerships are well over $100/hr labor, and of course, the parts are marked up as well!

Word. It was purportedly done for security, so if someone made a key to fit your door they'd still have to make another whole key to fit your ignition switch. For me the main advantage would be that I can leave the car running, lock the door, and take the other key with me...but I don't do that anyway.

Re: Honda Help...Stalling Out!

LOL HC, by now most old GM vehicles of that vintage it wouldn't matter. You can just pull the key out while the engine is running, and lock the doors. I do it all the time on my 81 Buick.

Re: Honda Help...Stalling Out!

I used to do that when I had my '87 Caddy, but I don't think it works in my low-mileage '80 Buick.

Re: Honda Help...Stalling Out!

I'm happy to say that it's day two and still no stalling. I think that everything should be alright from here on in.
