Put in new ignition lock cylinder. Needed immobilizer PIN number to get car out of autotheft. I have Mastertech with OEM Honda/Acura. Could not get PIN from anywhere. Also when I went into the immobilizer menu on the tool it said text not available.

Referencing your complaint (copy below), received 5/5/05 from John Cabaniss of NASTF: If you are attempting to learn a new key to the immobilizer system, I'm afraid that function is not available. In an effort to guard against the potential for vehicle theft, Honda has elected not to make this function available except through our franchised dealerships. If you're trying to wake-up an ECU, a special tool is available for loan through our Service Express Website (; go to "Order Diagnostic Tools"). If you are attempting to access a different function, please clarify and we'd be happy to provide a more complete reply.
