1999 Honda Civic Remote Keyless Entry System

How do I replace the RKEM (Remote Keyless Entry System) in my 1999 Honda Civic? My driver door lock won't work off the remote (I did try replacing the battery), and I can't think what else the problem might be. I know the remote is still good.
I know the RKEM is located behind the radio, but that's all I know.

    security system light on. Remote entry does not work. I think maybe the security system has a internal battery for memory. I would like to know where this is.

My 2005 Honda Civic Hybrid alarm system is no longer responding to the remote control after changing the battery in the remote control. Any ideas on what might be the problem.


Try locking and unlocking the doors with the key to see if it will reset the security system.
It is possible a relay could cause this...there are many relays and computers in this hybrid system

The driver's door doesn't lock when using the remote key, but the passnenger and the rear door do The keyless entry was not locking or unlocking the doors on my 1999 4-door Honda Civic. I replaced the...


First thing is to try passenger door (that still has key lock for '03, doesn't it?) Or the rear hatch. I'll bet it won't work there, either, unless battery is disconnected. My guess is that the remote locking is staying at "lock" - which is why it works with battery disconnected.
I haven't heard of anything just like your problem, but there have been many who have to replace the RKEM (Remote Keyless Entry Module) - it's behind the radio. Usually the doors start to lock & unlock by themselves.

I have a 96 ford conversion van with a 600 plus addon keyless system and need to program new keyless remots , need to know how to get system in program mode.


Hi.

To program ( or reprogram ) a keyless entry remote transmitter into the remote keyless entry module, perform the following steps:

1. Turn the key to ON or ACC and short the two terminals of the program connector, a two-pin connector located below the driver's side of the instrument panel at the base of the steering column. All doors should lock and then unlock.
2. Press any button on each keyless entry remote transmitter in turn. All doors should lock and then unlock. If the door locks do not respond, press the button again (up to three times maximum with the same keyless entry remote transmitter). If the door locks still fail to respond, go to Pinpoint Test A.
3. Repeat Step 2 to program additional keyless entry remote transmitters into the remote keyless entry module (up to four keyless entry remote transmitters maximum).
4. Turn key off.
5. Remove the short from the program connector. All doors should lock and then unlock.
6. Verify that the keyless entry remote transmitters have been successfully programmed by pressing the LOCK or UNLOCK button on each one, and observing that the system responds by locking and/or unlocking the doors.


I hope this helps you.

Thanks!

Keyless entry on honda civic 2006 not working


The keyless entry is designed to work with the doors closed (closed - not locked). If the door ajar sensor thinks the door is open the keyless entry is disabled. When you manually lock the door it might tighten the door just enough to activate the keyless entry. I would try slamming all the doors closed and then see if the keyless entry works. If it still wont work have the wiring checked on the front door lock.
