i lost my keys and they dealership is telling me i have to order a new imobilizer etc is this true?
My prelude has been shuttering a lot from the front right wheel when I accelerate for about a month. The good majority of power is going to my left wheel when accelerating as well. Could this have anything to do with the ATTS?
My Prelude has an automatic transmission. The shifter takes several tries before it will go into "park".
Sometimes it is difficult to remove the key from the ignition lock cylinder. The dash shows a flashing green key. The lock cylinder is worn but, I need to know if the ignition switch should be replaced. When turning the key to the start position the car does not crank at all. The radio will sometimes go off in the run position when jiggling the key.

my car wont start after radiator replacement. whats the problem.
I have been having uneven front tire wear for a long time. The inside edge is more worn out than the outside. It usually takes about 10,000 miles to notice this after putting new front tires on. Since I noticed the problem six years ago, I do not rotate my directional tires, so I do not wear my rear tires out prematurely as well. I have had alignment jobs done 4x since 2003. Honda did it 3x, 1x by a private garage. Honda changed the front driver-side inner tie rod in 2005 during one of the alignments, and the private garage changed the front driver-side outer tie rod in 2008. However, i noticed the problem still exists. Any ideas on what to do? Do I have something else wrong with my car? I've heard about laser alignment, is that better?
