#431 of 513 Reprogram Honda remote to work with antitheft system
Apr 23, 2007 (4:21 pm)
I have a 1997 Honda Civic LX sedan (Canadian model, which is equivalent to a US Civic DX sedan model according to Edmunds.com: no power lock, no power window, etc). The car has the dealer installed antitheft system which is armed and unarmed with the Honda keyless entry remote (the remote does not lock or unlock as the car has NO power lock, just arm and disarm the antitheft system), I recently bought an additional used Honda keyless entry remote identical to the one I have (which works, same FCC ID: A269ZUA101, same Canada number, same Ref No, same P/N).
I try to use these following instructions available online to reprogram the remote I just bought but it does not seem to work:
1. Turn Key to on position.
2. Push and hold valet button on the stock radio (which is skinny bar located between am/fm & cd/tape buttons on stock radio). Door locks will cycle one time.
3. Press any button on remote one time within 20 seconds. Door locks will cycle again.
4. To program up to 4 additional remotes repeat step 3 for each remote.
5. Turn key off programming is complete.
As my car does not have power locks, the door locks will not cycle as indicated in step 3 above. So I do not if these program instructions are incorrect or the used remote I just bought is defective as I cannot use it to arm or disarm the antitheft system.
Does anyone know of about a different procedure to reprogram a keyless entry remote for a 1997 Honda Civic with a dealer installed antitheft system (but NO power lock)? I am sure that someone has been through this before and has it resolved. Please share the solution.
Thanks in advance for your suggestions/information.
#432 of 513 Can I refund an accesory.
Apr 27, 2007 (6:16 am)
3 days back I bought a new 2007 Honda Civic LX. I asked for a rear spoiler($590) and so they ordered one. Now i dont want it. I went back to them but they said any accessory ordered cannot be refunded. They showed me a form I signed which said
" I hereby accept this WE-OWE with the understanding that it is valid for only (90) NINETY DAYS FROM THE DATE OF ISSUANCE, and no refund will be given on any accessories purchased at the time of contract"
THe spoiler is currently not installed and probably being ordered...is there a way I can still get a refund for it??
Thanks in Advance

Well worst case and you get stuck with paying for it, you can decide to let them put it on (assume that price includes installation)...or eat the installation costs and sell the brand new spoiler on ebay.

#435 of 513 Reprogram Honda remote to work with antitheft system
May 08, 2007 (5:14 pm)
I was able to reprogram the remote to work on my 1997 Civic antitheft system, by using a different set of programming instructions (the Accord 1998-2002 appears to use the same remote), available at handaaccessories.com.

I wouln't do it.I have a Type S Acura and the suspension is stiffer and I tried the SI Civic and I wouln't mess with it.
The specs are diferent, too much so for this type of modification.

well this is actually done a lot, especially to this car, simply because many people thought the k20 in the 02 si was not worthy of the si moniker.
If it makes you feel any better, this engine is in the european civic type r (previous generation) which is a basiclally a cooler looking version of the car you guys are looking at, with the engine and tranny standard. Look up a tuning shop in your area, and they would probably be the best to evaluate the car.
most people swap out the engine from directly imported ones from japan; and these engines usually have no more than 40k on them simply because the japanse i think, get taxed according to how much maintanece a car requires or some weird thing like that. The odometer reading is probably only acurate for the cars body.
#439 of 513 Anyone know of aftermarket wiper blades for '06 HCH?
Nov 10, 2006 (8:11 am)
Hello, has anyone found aftermarket windshield wiper blades for the 2006 Civic Hybrid? The ones that came with the car were incredibly streaky. Got those replaced by Honda service and those only lasted a couple of weeks before they got streaky. Can anyone help?

I assume that the 06 Civic hybrid has the same wipers as the same car in LX trim - mine look like a single long piece of rubber. If you take off the wiper blade assembly, following (sort of, more below) the instructions in the owner's manual, it looks like the end of the wiper arm is the standard hook/horseshoe, which looks like it should accept various aftermarket wipers. I say looks like because I haven't done it, I've only replaced the wiper blade insert.
Regarding removing the wiper blade assembly, the manual says to remove the cap by pinching the sides and sliding it off. I tried to do this, pinching and pushing heartily, with no success. I found it came off much more easily by using my fingernails to slightly pry apart the side tabs. Maybe it's just me and I'm reading the manual wrong, but I think the cap was just designed poorly.
As to the refill themselves, I looked online and it seems that no one makes aftermarket refills for this generation of Civics yet.
