Customer Question
Battery died on my 2008...
Battery died on my 2008 Honda Pilot. When I turned it back on, the alarm was going off, radio wouldn't work, navigation wouldn't work. I've entered the proper code for both and radio and navigation are working again. However, 1) any time I open a door from the inside or outside, the alarm goes off and 2) my key fob doesn't work--I need to use my key in drivers side and turn it to lock/unlock. Battery is working well otherwise. Help?

Hi,

My name is ***** ***** I would be happy to help. Has the key fob not been working for a while or did it stop after the battery died?

Only after the battery died.

Does the red light blink on the key fob when a command is pressed?

Mm. Is that your only key fob?

no, my wife has another which we will test tonight. you think it's just the fob? would be a weird coincidence? and why would turning the key cause an alarm to go off? why would opening the door from inside cause the alarm to go off?
Mechanic for Honda: justinsbg, ASE Certified Technician replied 2 years ago

Did the alarm sound as soon as you turned the key in the door lock or when you opens the door?

Hard to say I honestly don't recall. I can try again tonight...

Reminder, I have not been paid at this point and won't be until I receive a positive rating from you. At that point I will receive a portion of what you've already paid Just Answer.

Try programming the key fob.

1). Sit in the vehicle with doors closed.

2). Put the key in ignition switch. Turn it to ON

3) within 15 seconds press lock on the fob

4). Turn switch back iff

5). Turn switch on and within 15 seconds press lock on the fob.

6). Turn switch back off

7). Turn switch on and press lock. You should hear the locks cycle. Quickly press unlock.

8). Take the key out of the switch and check the key fob again.

See if that gets that key fob working. Keep in mind that if the fob does start working again you'll need to program the other fob along with the current fob once you get your hands on it. It sounds like the battery may be bad in your fob, but the light may be just burned out on it. You can go ahead and rate me positively. Don't worry, there aren't additional charges for asking questions after you rate so we can keep chatting. Thanks

I just heard from my mechanic. You were right...a $45.00 job. THANK YOU!! Your response was received in less than 10 minutes!!

Linda B.USA

Your answers were clear and the diagrams were perfect. Dealer wanted $87 for an hour of labor and even I did it in 15 minutes.

EdUSA

HONDA PLATINUM was great. I really appreciate his help. I was ready to trade my new Honda until he told me to wait until I got 3,000 miles on it and my gas mileage would get much better.

SummerUSA

I took the Power Steering O-Ring service bulletin linked from JustAnswer to my Acura dealer, and not only did they no-charge the o-ring, they also replaced the power steering pump at no cost.

Gary RStevenson Ranch, CA

Wonderful service, prompt, efficient, and accurate. Couldn't have asked for more. I cannot thank you enough for your help.

Mary C.Freshfield, Liverpool, UK

This expert is wonderful. They truly know what they are talking about, and they actually care about you. They really helped put my nerves at ease. Thank you so much!!!!
