Do you have a key fob? If not and the key lock/unlock in the driver door did not work, try unhooking the battery and having the key in the ignition as far as you can turn it without having the engine crank, then hook up the battery and see if that works.

I do have a fob and it was working immediately before this battery issue but now it is non-responsive. I've also tried reprogramming it and it does not have an effect.Just tried unhooking the battery w/ key in "on" position (II) and nothing.

Try unhooking the hood latch connector

No luck.

I tested the horn and it functions if that helps at all.

Ok, if none of these things worked, the only other option that I can think of is that your immobilizer has lost its programming. The only solution to that is to have the dealer reprogram it to your key. I'll open up the question to other experts, maybe they can help you.

Hi,

My name is ***** ***** I would be happy to help. Can you please tell me if the engine spins over when you turn the key to start, or does nothing happen?

Nothing happens when I turn the key to start.
Mechanic for Honda: justinsbg, ASE Certified Technician replied 2 years ago

Do the dash lights come on when the ignition switch is turned to the ON position?

Customer reply replied 2 years ago
No.
Mechanic for Honda: justinsbg, ASE Certified Technician replied 2 years ago

So it sounds like battery is dead. Have you tried hooking up a set of jumper cables to it to see if it will jump start? Let me know?

Ask Your Own Honda Question
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
No. Battery is fully charged. All connectors/terminals are tight. The battery was dead then I charged and when I reconnected it the horn sounded constantly. Key and fob were unresponsive so I pulled the horn fuse and started to troubleshoot. Now the fuse is back in, no horn sound or alarm sound but everything is still not responding.

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!!!!
