Some had safety check failed issue when trying to add a spare key or doing all keys lost.
Error “Safety check failed. Turn off the ignition”.
Here’s the tip to program key for Honda Civic/Accord new system with old style key.
If you program an old system with the new protocol it will brick the bcm. It’s because there are new 2022 cars that use the old key as well as 2021. To fix the bricked BCM you need to replace it, code it, and program new keys.
How to avoid bricking a BCM?
There’s a bulletin on this issue with Honda, using aftermarket tools to program new honda key type. If the system as If it’s a new system…you should say NO instead of yes! The BCM wouldn’t Brick!
The problem is when you try to program a 2020 or newer vehicle that still uses the old key system. The programmer asks you if the car is 2020 or newer. If you select yes it thinks the car is on the new key system. If the car you are working on still uses the old system you now have bricked the and are buying a BCM. If “NO” is selected, regardless of the model year, the key fob registration will be successful.
You could tell by if the car uses the older style key or new style key. New style key new system. Old style key old system.
*If its the old style proximity yes but make sure you don’t say yes to the new system. if it’s the new style prox then im608 will brick the BCM . HDS is what everyone is using for the new style proximity.
It’s because there are new 2022 cars that use the old key as well as 2021. If the car auto-selects by vin it will automatically select it as the new system. So it’s best to do manual selection if the vehicle uses the only key click the response that it’s before 2020.
If it uses the new style then you can click that it’s after 2020. Rather it’s xtool or autel. That’s why some people had no issues. If old key design then select No, he will succeed.
The only key that will work is xhorse universal. You will still have dash lights but the car will run. It did not take Autel ikey universal.
I programmed a 2021 honda civic the procedure was the same as the old model never had any issues.
