#20 of 45 Reprogram Honda remote to work with antitheft system
Apr 23, 2007 (3:02 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: 08E61-S01-1M0-01).
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 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.

Sorry about your wheels- but would the "scumbags" really be reading this forum? Be careful with posting veiled threats, it can be used against you if something inadvertently happens to the trash that stole your wheels. Sometimes the law works better for the criminals than for the victims. I hope you recover your wheels.
#23 of 45 aftermarket alarm
May 08, 2007 (11:29 am)
I am picking up a new 07 lx coupe either later today or tomorrow and I was just wondering... Can installing an aftermarket alarm or remote start such as a viper one void the warranty for any reason? Like would they say that whoever did it made some electrical problems or whatnot, or is that not a concern?
BTW... Stock, it does not come with an alarm that actually makes sound does it?
Thanks in advance

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.
#26 of 45 Civic 2007 Automatic Locks
May 20, 2007 (8:49 am)
I have a question:
Whenever I turn off the car the driver side door locks unlock, but none of the others. I have to manually press the door unlock button to unlock all the other doors. Do any of you know if this is normal or if there is a fix for this? Is there, perhaps, a way to program the automatic locks so that all of the doors unlock when you turn off the car?
Thanks for your help.

Did you get a quick start guide when you bought your car? If you did the directions are in there under Locks/Windows/Mirrors. If you didn't get the quick start book let know and I will give you the directions on how to unlock all doors when putting the car in park.

it's a bit involved to re-type here, suffice it to say if you look on page 84 of the owner's manual, it gives a step-by-step to change unlocking only the driver's door or all doors. Only works on automatics, btw.
I never even knew this was an option, thanx will26 for the heads-up.

Thanks for the info...I ended up looking at the owner's manual. After a couple tries, I was able to get it to work.
