it starts up for 3 secs. then shuts right off again, the security system is a guess. the truck ran fine, transmission was slipping. took me a year to find a decent transmission, truck sat, battery was stolen, key fob went dead. replaced both and then did the key in drivers door turn right three times to reset security system but that didn't wok

Are you seeing any security lights/messages on the dash cluster when it starts and stalls at all?

Is the key fob working to lock and unlock the doors?

Mechanic for Honda: Pete, Auto Service Technician replied 11 months ago

Was this the procedure you had tried:
1

Insert the ignition key in the Accord's driver-side door lock.

2
Turn the key to the unlock position.

3
Turn the key to the lock position.

4
Turn the key back to the unlock position. The alarm should now be disabled and should start.

i didnt try that, this is a honda passport
Customer reply replied 11 months ago
I will try that if it is the same as the honda
Mechanic for Honda: Pete, Auto Service Technician replied 11 months ago

That is the honda method to reset the security system.I would try this procedure above to see if this then disables the alarm and allows starting.If this does not work come back here and let me know.

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

Mary C.Freshfield, Liverpool, UK
