Honda Ignition Security System
This advanced antitheft ignition system features a special electronic interlock that prevents the engine from being started by any other key than the two originally supplied with the motorcycle, each of which features a special coded chip
implanted in its plastic grip. When the coil antenna built into
the ring surrounding the upper edge of the ignition switch detects
the presence of an encoded key, it transmits the key’s unique code number to the ignition system’s electronic control unit (ECU),
code matches, as indicated by the lighting of a corresponding LED
built into the Firestorm’s new meter panel, the engine can be started normally. However, if the key code does not match the ECU’s programmed code number, even if the key is otherwise
identical and turns the switch, the ignition remains disabled and
the engine cannot be started. Since the engine is disabled at the
heart of its ignition system, it cannot be bypassed by either hot-wiring the ignition or exchanging the ignition switch module.
