#40 of 69 Security system in 2006 Honda
Aug 18, 2009 (5:43 pm)
Just bought a 2006 Honda. Initially when I would use the key fob to lock and unlock the car there was no sound. The panic button did work. Recently I used the Home LInk to program my garage door opener. Now if I click the open button two times to open all the doors, the panic alarm goes off. I have to press the button once wait until it beeps and then press it again to open the other doors. I don't like the beeps and would like to turn them off. Today as I was driving the alarm system went off and I could only stop it by pressing a button on the fob. I tried turning the car off, but the alarm was still going. Really strange. Is there any link between the alarm system and the Home Link? What could I have done while training and programming the Home Link to have caused the alarm to become audible?

Very odd. Not sure what you did but the car normally doesn't honk when unlocking. It will only honk when you lock it if you press the key fob lock button twice.
#42 of 69 Honda Accord "Secret" anti-theft system?
Aug 22, 2009 (7:37 am)
I am buying a new 2009 Honda Accord coupe EX-L. Correct me if I am wrong, but this comes standard with an immobilizer anti-theft key system. My dealer presented me with three further "improved" options to add to deter theft. The lowest price option was called "Secret". I did not understand all the details, but it is something that is attached directly to the car's computer, and disables the car from starting even more than the standard immobilizer. I believe they said it would immobilize even if a window were broken. It does not set off an audible alarm, and that is why it is called "Secret", I believe.
Anyone know more about this? I cannot find anything on the web. Wondering if it is worth the extra cost ($421).

Not sure of the 'Secret', most likely the real secret is how much they make if you buy it.
I am sure you have seen in this forum where some are having trouble with aftermarket security and remote start systems not integrating well with the factory system, so please choose wisely.
Also, the factory anti-theft should qualify for the insurance discount (tiny). No alarm will get anyone to pay it much attention, or stop a determined thief who has a temporary ignition system or a tow truck / flatbed.

Your password is on a small card they gave you when you bought the car. The radio has one too. If you can't find it you'll have to contact a Honda dealer.
#46 of 69 2003 Honda Accord Security System Issue
Dec 19, 2009 (10:37 am)
Have a 2003 Honda Accord. Has the standard Honda remote entry and security system. At times both FOBS will not work to open the doors or disarm the security ssytem. Replaced battery in FOB so know no issues with FOB. Usually only happens when it's raining over ngiht. Car is parked outside. Manually openning doors will set off the alarm and putting key in ignition and turning to on position will not disable the alarm. Anyone have any idea what is happening and what needs to be done to get it fixed. Dealer had car for two weeks and didn't happen for them. Dealer stating they can't do anything until it fails for them
#47 of 69 two anti-theft devices at once?
Jan 21, 2010 (11:53 pm)
you might have already seen my other posting about my car locks cycling after the after-factory installed anti-theft security system triggers the locks. after reading some of these postings though, it got me to thinking...I don't even know if they ever unhooked my alarm system that came installed originally on my car (94 honda accord ex)! i don't know why, but I still have the keyring button remote in my glove box...is it possible that it could have turned itself on again and perhaps my problems are the two systems conflicting with one another? just a thought...
#48 of 69 1993 Accord Security Plug
Jan 29, 2010 (1:51 pm)
I have a 1993 Accord that was stolen a few days ago. I found it a couple of days later none the worse for wear. It seems kids like to steal this model often. They tried to remove the cd player and door speakers but weren't bright enough to figure out how to get the door panels off and they didn't realize the CD player would not work without the face plate. They left the CD player and the harness adapter laying on the floor. While I was making repairs to the harness I remembered that Honda had a security plug installed at the bottom of the dash board. I recall the salesman saying that for a sum of money you could get a thumb plug that would allow you to remove the mini-PC card and thus disable the starting system when you are not using the car. Anyone know what the Honda offcial name for this option was?
thanks in advance

That I can remember Honda didnt offer a factory option for this but dealers used aftermarket companies for that. The only factory option that I remember set off a horn alarm but did not disable the ignition. I have seen what you are talking about and that does take away the signal to the starter but do not know who makes it..
