    There are many Honda remote fobs on ebay that look just the OEM ones, but you need to know the correct frequency in order to buy one that can be user programmed to your car. I've mentioned before that Wikipedia is unclear whether older JDM use the European or American standard.
    Well, today I put my StepWGN RG1 (2005--2009) remote on an expensive signal analyser, and I could see the two peaks of Frequency Shift Keying (FSK) and they were at 312.1Mhz, separated by 60kHz. The nearest commonly sold key fob is for 313.8Mhz, so I expect this is what my StepWGN is using, and there is a bit of room for variation due to tolerances.
    If you have a JDM Honda from a similar era, there is a good chance yours is the same.

    I hope this is of some help. Post here if you have success in programming a Chinese 313.8Mhz fob to your car.

    If you find a good source for a second fob please leave a link here I've been looking but only coming up with second hand units. The question has been asked a few times on the Stepwgn club uk FB page with no real answer.

    Henry there...
    yes U.K. cars run on the 433 frequency
    American cars are on the 868 band
    And Asia and japan cars are 315/313 frequency’s

    I can make a lot of the keys - and program these myself as I soecialise in Japanese import keys!

    The smart keys below are expensive - but not even half as expensive as what Honda U.K. want!
    Yes I can cut the keys - if you have a spare and if you have lost all the keys!

    I am full time in my work and get two/three imports a week -

    Step wagon Honda Fit
    Nissan elgrand Toyota alphard sect.

    Cut the key
    Program the remote
    And program the transponder!

    Step wagons are funny as I have to use a second hand key
    But they still work
    The rest are new and modern keys!

    Hi Martyn, do you know which transponder chip is required? I can't identify any markings on the original one in my fob. Would it be the Philips ID46 chip that is used in the Accord?

    I have done a step wagon in the past
    And the chip was id “8E” a glass chip that can’t be copied
    And is semi tricky to program!
