When the alarm system goes off at random times it's going to be one of the alarm triggers. The triggers that cause your problem are the doors, hood and trunk. If one is adjusted too loose it can set off the alarm causing a false security system breach. Each has a switch built into the latch or in the door way like the dome light switch. The Honda dealer can use the Honda HDS scan tool to check the breach history record stored in the security system control unit. Sometimes you can set the alarm wait several min then press out on each door from the inside. If the alarm goes off you found the door that needs to be adjusted. Also try pulling up on the trunk lid when the alarm is set it might need adjusted too? If none set off the alarm it's probably a bad hood latch switch. It's a very common Honda problem. Hard to give an exact answer in this situation. The dealer would be able to find the problem for sure with the breach history.

Please reply if you need more help so we can continue this conversation at no extra charge. This does not have to be my only answer.

Remember, sometimes it is difficult to completely diagnose your vehicle without being there, I will try to give you the best answer possible.

Thank you!

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
