Generally, without a key from the car to march the cuts to in a key cutting machine, only the dealer has that info. Otherwise anyone who stole a car (and this is the most-stolen car model in the US) could get the key code off the ignition lock and have a key made to get in. Some makes even have the key code number on the door locks.


So - go to a Honda Dealer - some require the car actually be there, others will accept your drivers license and vehicle registration (in your name) to do a new key - though if electronic key you or them will have to encode it (procedure usually in owners manual) so it works without setting off the security system.


I don't know about Hondas, but some licensed locksmiths can also do car door keys. Here is a previous response on that issue. Commonly $100-150 for an electronic key - sometimes up to twice that from a dealer. Door-only key (only gets you into car, in case you locked your keys in) generally even if it starts car (some will) will only run a minute or few to get it off the road before the security system shuts the car down until its computer is rebooted.


Since you need a key cutting machine and be a licensed locksmith to cut car keys, ask the locksmith to look it up. Course, many car keys cannot be "cut" by a normal locksmith because they are three-dimensional keys, in many cases you are stuck with major lcoksmith operations or the dealer - commonly around $100-150 range for a new electronic encoded key (not the fob, which is about twice that commonly) at a dealer.
