#1 of 158 2008 Honda Accord Remote Start
Nov 24, 2007 (8:24 am)
I recently bought an after market remote start for my 08 Accord and had it installed at Circuit City. When I picked it up the installer told me that he wasn't able to get the updated circuit diagram for the 08 from the third party install company or from Honda and was unable to bypass the alarm. So basically, the remote start works, but if the alarm is set, it will start the car, and trip the alarm.....kind of defeats the purpose of remote start. Now, I'm getting the run around from Circuit City saying they are waiting on word from Honda before they can fix it. Has anyone else run into this problem?? If so, is there information on how this can be bypassed? Please help!
#3 of 158 The interior LED lighting

Has anyone seen or gotten the extra LED lighting for the front floor boards? It looks really nice!!
You know what really bugs me about the 06 SE Accord, is that they only gave me 1 light, (on the ceiling) as interior lighting. Now if you get the EX, or maybe the EX-L the front lights above the stereo come on as well as the ceiling light. It seems crazy the honda skipped that, it doesn't even seem like it would be extra money to have the switch hooked to the front lights too on the SE, the lights and such are already there. It really seems crazy, its like they got lazy, and said were not hooking it up on the lower models. Its not that big on a deal, but it got me thinking.
When I get my 08, I am going to have the LED lights put in, I saw them on youtube. They look amazing. Not much, but cool.

I've purchased from College Hills and HandA and was very satisfied with both companies.
#7 of 158 Honda mask

I bought the 08 Honda front mask and can't get it to work. It is a 2 piece mask, when I put the hood piece on, the hood won't close. Any experience with this? I have to bring it in for the first oil change and figure I will ask them to take a look. It seems like the hood fits so good the space isn't enough for the 2 peices to fit. I left the bottom on because I drive on I95 and the front end gets beat up.

I wonder if anyone has installed the auto starter, fog light, back up sensor, and side molding from a Honda dealer? or if you have installed any of the above, how hard were they? do you recommand doing on yourself?
also, please tell me if any of the above are useful at all. thanks for any help.

I did consider the backup sensor and the rear-view camera. They both are as much involved and pretty much impact the same locations of the car. The installation instruction for both are available on-line. I decided not to do it myself after reading the instructions. It seemed like too much work for what it entails and involves putting holes in the car body. You really need to know what you are doing, have patience and have the right tools. The estimate to complete is about 2.5 to 3 hours for each. I opted to have it installed by the dealer. I paid $660 for the rear-view camera, installed.

Thanks for the info, parviz.
Since I am so bad at parallel parking, i am going to buy the back up camera.
