If it's a factory security system and you're setting it off every time you unlock the door, it sounds like you have a replacement key and not the original factory "chip" key that likely came with the vehicle. You may end up having to do to your local Honda/Acura dealership to have them look up the factory chip code and cut you a new key with the chip that keeps the system from getting tripped. Hope this solves your problem and have a great day!

How to disable alarm on 95 jaguar xj6


Your Car is equipped with an Electronic Security System. If you disable it (which most probably you can not), you will bet on security of your car. If you still want to disable it, you should contact your Dealer or Authorized Service Station with Purchase Bill. If possible, they'll change locking system to old one.

Disable alarm


Unlock the passenger door first and see if the problem still exists. If so, the doors lock and unlock sensor will likely need to be replaced. The vehicles security system is not getting the unlock signal when you unlock the door. Hopefully, the passenger side is still working.

I know a quick fix to get it started but you might think i'm crazy to do this:

My 2003 Dodge ram van 1500 does the same thing. I put a small heater on the driver's side floor blowing the hot air toward the door.
I plug in the heater when I get home from workand let it run all night.
The computer for the alarm is under a kick plate near the driver's door next to the driver's seat on the left side. Once it warms up the alarm; it will shut off the alarm and you can start the motor.

Try Turn your vehicle on, while its on unhook the alarm box from behind the dash. if you attempt to do this without the vehicle on it will not work. an other solution would be to ground the purple and yellow wire on the drivers side door

There is a security feature that will allow to go for a short distance but will stop. It is basically the same as the alarm, when you lock your doors, and then shut the door as you exit, there is a red security light that will blink in the dash. If you manually unlock and open any other door besides the driver door, the alarm will go off. To disable the alarm you have to cycle the key in the driver door. The same goes for the security feature. Cycling the key in the driver door lock manually, should disable the security feature until the doors are locked again. There may be a problem with the remote if you use it instead of you key to unlock your door.

My 1987 Buick Park Avenue alarm goes off for no apparent reason. Up until last night the security alarm was okay. It went off while we were away from home (we found out later). We had just got back home...


Same here. What I do is lock all doors using the button on the driver's door before opening the door, then open the driver's door and lock it manually. That seems to keep it disarmed. I believe it has to be the driver's door for this to work, but I don't know for sure.

When my alarm goes off, it usually happens when someone sticks their hand in the window to unlock the door. In order to turn off the alarm I close whichever door the person opened back, and unlock the door from the driver's side door. This usually turns the alarm off.
