Customer Question
I have a 2010...

I have a 2010 CRV and the anti theft system sets off the alarm as well as flashing the lamps and headlamps. This happens nearly every night when its parked in my driveway. No wind, and no thieves. I've disconnected the horns to sooth the neighbors but the flashing lamps continue and it runs the battery down. Is there a sensor to be changed or is there some way to disable the anti theft feature?

Mechanic's Assistant: Lots of things can cause problems with the battery. The Honda Mechanic will know what to do. Are you hoping to fix this yourself?

I'm on the island of Roatan and there isn't a Honda mechanic here. Yes, I'm hoping to fix it myself.

Mechanic's Assistant: Great! What have you tried so far?

As i said, I've simply disconnected the horns. That's all.

Hello, I will try my best to help you with your concern.

In the past there have been issues with the hood latch switch causing the alarm to go off seeming by itself.

How often is the problem happening?

you can try to bypass the switch and then the alarm should not go on by itself anymore

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!!!!
