    Just bought an used Honda CRV 2000. I was not aware of the antitheft
    system and made a duplicate key. When I tried to turn on the car
    didn´t work. DOing some research I found about the antitheft system. I
    can turn on the ignition if I put the original key close to the
    duplicate one. My BIG problem, I cannot pull out the duplicate key from
    the ignition.

    Any ideas on what to do??

    I'm guessing you're not in USA or Canada? This stuff is all in your
    owner's manual. . . . . You will have to just wiggle and wiggle that key
    until it comes out. You may have to turn the steering wheel a bit to
    release the key, or even stick another key into the SHIFT RELEASE slot
    and put the whole thing in NEUTRAL to make key extraction easier. For
    help with immobilizer systems, see all the TSB's at

    Look in each model of Honda, since there are similarities.

    I’d take it to a dealer before you do any permanent costly damage

    All keys are chipped and need to be done by a specialis
