Disadvantage of an Acura chip wrench

As a result of the problems with the Acura ignition, the dealer decided to attach a key-to-chip system. The latter came to secure the start of the car. However, the new chip system also has shortcomings that can be a brake on starting the car.

Indeed, the security system of the chip resides in a circuit that is integrated into it. This circuit is in contact with another circuit integrated into the vehicle. Before your Acura vehicle starts, the key must transmit a signal to the vehicle circuit. The car starts when it receives the signal.

By the way, the interest with this smart key is that stealing your car is very complicated. However, the downside is that sometimes the smart wrench misses at startup. Thus, your car will not be able to start. To avoid being disadvantaged, Serrurier Momo Montreal offers you the realization of the double of your key. You will use it in case of failure.

Temporary solution

Here are some temporary solutions to try to move your vehicle to a safe place if it no longer starts normally.

Keep in mind that these solutions are random and not guaranteed, they eventually allow a “last start” and will not avoid the intervention of the car locksmith, because this problem does not depend on the key, but on the barrel, and will recur.

Changing the barrel at the dealership costs more than $750. Momo should not exceed one third of this sum for a guaranteed repair.


  • Vibrate the key up and down so that it eventually turns in the barrel.
  • Push on the key gently to bring it into contact
  • Spray a lubricating product (WD-40) into the ignition to facilitate key entry

It’s winter, it’s minus -20°C. everything freezes, including door locks!
You are in a hurry, the door must open! Alas, the lock is so frozen that the key breaks in the barrel. You look bewildered at the piece of key left between your fingers, and see the other end of the key… always in the lock. What can I do?
