I have a non-oriel 8th gen but got the oriel key, got it cut and programmed it and works like a charm. So suppose, I remove the transponder from the circuit, will the key still work? What's the point of connecting the transponder to the circuit in the remote key and not in the valet key?
One more question. If I simply buy a 9th gen key from Honda, get it cut and programmed will it work with my 8th gen?
