#1 of 69 Honda Accord Faulty Anti-theft
Aug 01, 2006 (10:22 am)
I have a 2000 Honda Accord coupe with an anti-theft device and an aftermarket auto start system. Recently, I've been running into a problem where my anti-theft device gets riggered and the lights and horn start going off for two minutes at a time then stop. I can't figure out what's going on. First, I thought it was a wire that attached to the hood to signal when the hood was open or closed and activate the alarm accordingly. This wire had broken off an actuator switch so I grounded the wire thinking this would solve the problem. It worked for about a month, then the problem started again. Honda dealers tell me the problem can be with a pin in my door lock, but it costs a lot to fix.
I was wondering if there's a way for me to get my anti-theft disabled so the horn and lights would stop flashing. I park my car in a garage in suburbia so I'm not too worried about it getting stolen.
Any help would be great. Thank you.

Ok I have a 2005 Honda Accord. I was wondering that since it already has the factory alarm, will the alarm go off if someone breaks the windows? I had my windows down and when I went to unlock it while it was armed, the alarm didnt go off. So i was just wondering. Lots of cars have been getting there windows broken at school and I didnt want that to happend to me. If thats the case then will I be able to put in a different car alarm in my car without messing it up? Any help will be greatly appreciated. Thanks again

My 06 alarm will go off if I unlock the door with the window down. I'm sure you can figure out how I know that.

I recall an upgrade option for the security system for glass breakage, at least when I purchased my 04 Accord. I would assume it's the same for your 05.

My 2005 Accord does not arm the alarm unless you lock it using the button on the key. If you're locking it using the buttons in the car, that's why the alarm doesn't go off.

Not true in my 2006 EX. I lock the door from the interior button all the time, then close the door. Look at the dash, you should see a red LED blinking in the instrument cluster.

The security system automatically sets 15 seconds after you lock the doors, hood and trunk. For the system to activate, you must lock the doors from the outside with the key, lock tab, door lock switch, or remote transmitter. The security system light on the instrument panel starts blinking immediately to show you the system is setting itself.

I live in the Midwest where we get quite a bit of winter snow. I would like to warm up my car in the morning before going to work to defrost it, but I don't seem to be able to leave it running and lock the doors (so as not to get stolen). Any ideas?
