Hi.. similar issue as...
Hi.. similar issue as the one I'm reading.. 2001 Accord Coupe - V6, no sunroof. the alarm would sometimes go off when opening the door (with the factory key / remote in hand) - very random and would stop just as randomly.. key in ignition would work sometimes other times not - red kill button to left of steering column did nothing etc. so.. my dad took it to the Honda dealer and had them disable it. Now I'm driving the car and want a working alarm and remote...

Welcome, I'm Chris (aka-Moose).

  • THE TIME I AM ONLINE, 7 days a week normally online around midday and then late evening until early morning.
  • PHONE CALLS are automatically offered by the website normally after my first reply. I complete calls where I feel it is a benefit.
  • UPLOADED LINKS I SEND, if I upload dropbox links, they will open on a home PC, often they fail on a work PC, on a phone use the box on the top right of your phone screen for direct download.

The issue you are having is with the aftermarket alarm system. That little red button is not OEM. Is the option available to just remove that system and buy Honda key fobs and program them to the car so you have remotes and it is back to stock OEM?

You now will see a rating scale 1=bad to-5=excellent because I have posted a full or partial answer instead of an info request. When you rate I get a portion of the deposit you made, no rating means you still paid, but I earn nothing. My goal is understanding your question, and addressing it in full detail. In return, receiving a 5-star rating. Rating does not close the post or stop the conversation. Please keep in contact and reply as much as needed. Thanks, Chris

The key fobs are original Honda (OEM) as are the keys and have always worked / were working re locking/unlocking and opening the trunk even at the time they haf it disabled...
Just not enableing/ or disabling the alarm
Mechanic for Honda: Chris (aka-Moose), Technician replied 4 months ago

Have you had the Honda fobs programmed to the vehicle using a Honda scan tool?

Is the $26 for a call in addition to the $28?
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
The meaning reprogrammed ? As I said the fobs were working fine re locking/unlocking etc
Mechanic for Honda: Chris (aka-Moose), Technician replied 4 months ago

A call is a different service and is extra.

What did the Honda dealer disable?

Did the dealer remove the red button, that module and wiring?

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!!!!
