Customer Question
Alarm keeps going off...

Alarm keeps going off. Opened driver's side door with key and put key in ignition. Don't have fob/remote.

Mechanic's Assistant: Have you checked the fob's battery?

Don't have the fob with the car. Using key only.

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the model/year of your Honda?

Odyssey 2008

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Odyssey yourself? What have you tried so far?

My husband drove it to the store and is just trying to get home. He can't get the alarm to go off so he can drive it home. It just keeps going off every time he tries.

Hello welcome to Just answer I am Master tech and will be able to assist you.

the issue is the system is not recognizing the Key signal.

I had a Honda Civic that was doing the same thing.

end result was adding a new fob and replacing the master keys and programming.

how long has this been doing this ?

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!!!!
