I was hoping someone would give some advice on retrieving the key number for my specific '14 MDX. I purchased it used from a dealership and just realized the tag that comes with the original key fobs was not present. Do I really need it if I wanted to have a replacement key fob later? (In case I lose one or something else causing me to require replacement fob.).

I'm pretty sure the VIN will be able to retrieve the key fob information.

The dealer (or factory/port?) has to cut the key and program/reprogram them anyhow, so it's all on them.

Also note that replacement fobs are very expensive ($500+ all-in).

I want to smack myself. I purchased my 2012 used, on the 2nd key fob, there was a little white plastic thing on the key but thee was no number, barcode, etc. I looked at it a few days after the purchased and taught it was useless and toss it in the trash. Only to learned a few days later that it was the code for the key. When I go to the dealer for my first scheduled maintenance, i'll see if it could be replaced.
