Question about 1998 Honda Accord
I have had my honda for 1 year i cant afford a mechanic look at my alarm. It just goes off randomly when it feels like it. no one is around not even animals. I dont have a remote. I have to physically unlock the car to stop the alarm. How can I disconnect the alarm. I just want to lock the car with no alarm. Sounds simply. Please help.
For the system to arm, the ignition switch must be off and the key removed. Then, the multiplex control unit must receive signals that the doors, hood, and trunk lid are closed and locked. When everything is closed and locked, none of the control unit inputs are grounded.
The door switches, hood switch, trunk lid switch, door lock knob switches, and door lock cylinder switches are all open. Ten seconds after the doors are locked with the key or the lock knob, or immediately after locking the doors with the remote transmitter, the system arms.
If anything is opened or improperly unlocked after the system is armed, the control unit gets a ground signal from that switch, and the system is set off.
If one of the switches is misadjusted or there is a short in the system, the system will not arm. As long as the control unit continues to get a ground signal, it thinks the vehicle is not closed and locked and will not arm.
An alarm that sounds for no apparent reason may have been set off by a switch that is on the threshold of misadjustment. In this case, it may only take a significant change in outside temperature, the vibration of a passing truck, or someone bumping into the vehicle to make the alarm sound.

IVE GOT THE SAME CAR WITH THE IDENTICAL PROBLEM. I FOUND THAT ONE I REPLACED MY DRL MODULE BECAUSE IT WAS NOT WORKING AND MY HIGH BEAMS WERE ALSO NOT FUNCTIONING PROPERLY. THAT IT SUDDENLY STOPPED. NOT SURE IF IT HAS ANYTHING TO DO WITH THE ACTUAL ISSUE BUT IT SEEMS TO BE WORKING.
