The remote may be faulty. I just had this happen to me a couple days ago. Most auto parts stores have a display now where you can press the buttons on the remote and a little light will flash if it's getting a signal out of the remote. I'd try this next because it's a free way to check the remote. Autozone had this display if I remember correctly.

I have tried both remotes for the car, and neither of them work, one of the remotes was replaced @ 1 year ago when I had a duplicate key made for the car at the Honda dealer, have replaced batteries in both remotes, both remotes dispaly a small red light that flashes when you push the buttons on the remotes.

Hi again,

I'd still check it like I was saying above. It's not going to cost you anything and they'll fail and still show a red LED. At least you can eliminate the remote/s as the problem.

Have you tried to reprogram them?
