Hi Im David, thanks for visiting the site. allow me a moment to get the reset procedure for you. thanks

Expert:  david craig replied 9 months ago.

try this

  • Insert the ignition key in the driver-side door lock.

  • Turn the key to the unlock position.

  • Turn the key to the lock position.

  • Turn the key back to the unlock position. The alarm should now be disabled.

  • Start your Hondas engine and allow the vehicle to run for at least 10 minutes. This will allow the honda to reset the alarm. When you're done, you can shut off the honda and arm the system as usual.
