Unfortunately there is no fuse or relay to pull out to permanently disable it ,You will need a Capable Factory scanner or equivalent to Read the Fault codes in the anti theft Module needed here ,that is done by hooking up the scanner to your vehicle DLC data port connector and based on these faults we can pull up a Pin Point Troubleshoot and be Accurate ,If you do get the Faults Read ,Please post them back here for me and I can Help You Further on it and send you the pin point troubleshoot to perform or the most possible causes for it .

CLICK ON LINK TO VIEW PDF FILE ,FOR SYSTEM DESCRIPTION AND OPERATION AND PARTS INVOLVED , I MEAN IT COULD BE AS SIMPLE AS HOOD SWITCH OR DOOR SWITCH ,TRIGGERING IT , A KEY RF SIGNAL ,ETC .

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

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!!!!
