I can’t quite remember if I figured this out on my own or read it somewhere on the net (perhaps on this site) but the internal parts for the Honda Fit EV remote are nearly identical to those of the Mitsubishi I-Miev remote. You can compare them yourself; here for the Honda: https://fccid.io/OUCGHW-H001/Internal-P ... os-1551671
and here for the IMiev: https://fccid.io/OUCGHW-M002/Internal-P ... os-1429062
. There are some interesting differences however: the Honda remote has only 3 buttons while the Mitsubishi one has 5, the Honda reports the battery charge as a percentage while the Mitsubishi one has the silly 3 bar system, the Honda one lacks a retractable antenna etc etc. Anyhow, I decided the other day to do a little shopping and found some of these Honda fobs for sale on ebay so I bought one to see if I could do anything fun with it. I also purchased a two pack of “broken” IMiev remotes to see if I could do anything cool with those as well. Interestingly one of the “broken” remotes works just fine and I was able to pair it to my car without issue. The other one has a broken screen but seems to be in otherwise working order. I was hoping that I would be able to figure out the correct sequence of button pushes to get the Honda remote into program mode and get it to sync to my car as well but so far have not had any luck. If anyone out there is able to find out how to get this remote into programming mode I would love to do this experiment and figure out if I could use this remote with my car. I believe the Honda Fit EVs were all leases that have been reclaimed and sent to the crushers but it would seem that their old remotes are not too hard to come by on the net and could be another source of remotes for those who lost theirs or bought their car used without one.
Also, if anyone has a broken remote with a working screen and would be interested in doing a screen swap as was described here: viewtopic.php?t=1869
I think this could be a fun project – just need to find a screwdriver for those weird screws.
