    I have just bought a 1996 Honda Accord US Wagon. The 2.2 ViX.
    It has the remote key thing but the battery was flat (have a new
    battery now). I think I need to re-program the key to the car, does
    anyone know how to do this or where I can find instructions to do this?

    ANY help would be appreciated.

    It should not need any reprogramming. The programming teaches the car to
    recognize the signal from specific remotes. there is no programmable logic
    in the remote itself.

    Why do you think you need to reprogram it? If it does not unlock the doors
    after putting known good batteries in it, the remote is probably bad.

    All that being said, the directions for programming the car to recognize a
    remote are contained in the Helm manual. I have also had success by simply
    walking into the dealer's parts counter and asking them to print out the
    instructions for me (free). I have the sequence for the '96 Odyssey. It
    might be the same. I'll send it to you if you want to try it.

    Yes please, I'd appreciate those '96 Odyssey instructions.
