Keyless Ride Keyless Entry Remotes: One K2 Forge Remote Can Control Two Vehicles

We program remotes for a 2003 Honda Civic and a 2002 Honda CR-V. The customer liked the idea of only carrying one remote that operates both vehicles.


The age of the automotive remote is upon us. Just about every new vehicle is equipped with a remote as most vehicles began eliminating the passenger door lock in the late 1990s. It seems the only cars that do not have remotes as standard equipment are the less expensive, base models, those...

To enter the programming mode for both of these Honda vehicles, insert the key into the ignition lock and have all remotes to be programmed easily accessible.

To enter the programming mode, the following three steps must be performed quickly three times.

  • Turn the key in the ignition to the “On” position. Instrument panel illuminates, starter does not engage.
  • Press the unlock button for about one second and release on the first remote.
  • Turn the key in the ignition to the “Locked or Off” position. Do not remove the key.

These three steps are repeated three times, one right after another. If there is too much time, the computer will not enter the programming mode.

Once the three steps have been repeated, within five seconds turn the ignition to the “On” position.

Press the unlock button on the same remote and release. The power door locks should cycle, from lock to unlock. This confirms the system is in the programming mode.

Within ten seconds, press the unlock button on the same remote and release. The power door locks will cycle to confirm that the system accepted the remote’s code.

Repeat this step to program the second and if applicable third remote.

Immediately, turn the key back to the “Locked” position and remove. This exits programming mode.

At this time, test the operation of each programmed remote to be certain all of the functions are operational.

Once the remotes are programmed to the first vehicle, they must be switched to operate the second vehicle. If this step does not occur, and the second vehicle is programmed, the programming of the first vehicle is lost.

When two vehicles are programmed, press and hold the 3rd and 4th buttons simultaneously for two seconds. If the remote is set to vehicle one, the LED will flash red three times when switching to vehicle number two. If the remote is set to vehicle two, the LED will flash green three times when switching to vehicle number one.

The customer liked the idea of only carrying one remote and being able to use it for either vehicle. This is specifically advantageous for Honda vehicles using the high security lock mechanism as the driver’s door lock begins to wear out over time if the key is used to unlock the vehicle.

The circuit board can be reprogrammed three times, if the customer changes vehicles or if an error or problem occurred after programming.
