Hi, I'm Chad. Welcome to JustAnswer. I'm reviewing your question and I will be posting your reply ASAP.

Expert:  Chad Farhat replied 4 months ago.

obviously the security system is triggered on ,you need a Honda scanner or equivalent to retrieve fault codes from antitheft module to see what failed,

module, receiver , door switch ,hood switch etc..

you can try this for now hopefully it will reset to get you going , but testing is still needed if it did

Master reset Procedure

1- Disconect Battery Cables ( Negative & Positive Cables )

2- Hold cables Toghether for 60 secs ,then let go

3- Wait 15 minutes

4- Make sure all doors are closed

5- Reconnect battery Cables

6- Lock & unlock the vehicles using the key from driver door side (if you have a key fob with no blade key, just lock & unlock using the key fob buttons)

7- Enter the vehicle and attempt to start

Let me know if you need anything else on it , just reply back here & we can continue.

if you are good , Please Kindly rate me.

Hope I was helpful to you
