#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..
#50 of 69 Alarms that go off by themselves
Jan 31, 2010 (11:03 am)
I have read several post about alarms going off and just wanted to add that if they are going off for 2 min then it is a tripped sensor, if it is for 30 secounds then it is the panic being activated. Some systems allow you to pull history from them and find out which, other dealer installed system you can tell by the flashes of lights and horn beeps afterwards before setting it again and some is a guessing game.
The panic 30 secound problem is usally always something to do with the key fob or the owner accidently initiating it.
The 2 minuite alarm most of the time is a bad hood switch, normal position for most models is a open switch at closed position which allows for a voltage referance signal to the computer and closed( grounded) when open. If your model has one you should be able to find the micro switch on the bottom of the latch. You may have to remove it to check it unless you know how to do mode 1 and 2 multiplex test on like 98 and above..

This may be a dumb question, but have you wiggled the steering wheel? The steering wheel is made to lock to prevent theft without a key. Turning the wheel left or right while attempting to turn the key may solve your problem.

My 99 Honda Accord EX did the same thing today when coming out of church at all times!!!! My husband opened the passenger side door. I need to add my power locks do not work nor does my remote. To further complicate things my drivers side lock does not work. So I must unlock the passenger side door and unlock the drivers side door by crawling over the seat. The passenger side door was left unlocked today, he simply opened the door and the alarm went off. My remote is a piece and of course would not stop the alarm. I thought by starting the car the alarm should stop it did not. It finally timed out after about 3 minutes. When we got home when I opened my door to get out it went off again. We had to disconnect the battery to get it to shut up. I thought I would just find the fuse for the horn, not realizing that the headlights and the flashers still go off when the alarm is going off. We found the relay for the horn under the hood and pulled it. When hooking the battery back up the alarm was still going minus the horn. It would time out but when opening the door again it would go off again. Finally took the key and locked and unlocked the passenger door from outside the car. The alarm finally stopped. Not sure what that was all about it has never happened before hope like hell it does not happen again. Frustrating!!!!
#56 of 69 Battery dead - alarm went off when trying to jump start
May 18, 2010 (4:38 pm)
My car didn't start in the morning - i was able to open it with the remote but the car wont start.
I just came back from work and couldn't open it with the remote. i hooked it up to my other car for a jump start. When i attached the cables the alarm started and i couldn't stop it with the key so I inserted the key into the ignition and turned it - not to full way - and the alarm stopped. But i also saw a spark from the cables. i tried to jump start the car after this but nothing is happening - not even when i turn the key all the way - no cranking nothing... is this because the battery is totally dead or i did something to the anti-theft? thanks

You said you saw spark from the cables. Cables shouldn't spark. Signs of sparking is most likely a dirty connection. If it's at the battery, a simple (and cheap) battery post brush will do the trick. You'll need to remove the battery clamps, clean the clamp and post, and replace the clamp. Do one at a time. The brush is available at any auto supply store.
