Car alarm won't turn off after recharge of battery
'we recently replaced the batter of our 2003 Honda Odyssey. Soon after, the battery was dead again. We tried to recharge it with a home charger kit after it had completely drained, but the car alarm started to go off, and the only way to disable it was to put the key in the ignition and turn it to the on position However, with the key in the on position, the charger shuts off. Is there anything you can suggest?

If the remote was programmed before loss of power, push and hold the unlock button until the alarm stops. If not try locking and unlocking the drivers side door with the the key. This has reset the alarm on my 2001 Odyssey.
You will also need the unlock code to reactivate your stereo after long term power loss. It is on a card with the manual given to the owner of new vehicles. A smart dealer will put it on a sticker in the glove box. Otherwise you have to remove the radio and give a Honda dealer the radio serial number to get the unlock code. Don't try it randomly; 10 incorrect tries locks the stereo.
if the battery goes dead or low it must be recharged with a charger, driving the car will not recharge it properly. The alternator is only meant to maintain the battery, not recharge it. Get the battery recharged and verified and then try again.
Is the remote battery dead? Or have you recently changed the battery in the remote?
If the first it needs a new battery. If second. You may have taken too long to change the battery and the remote is no longer programmed to the car. you will need to take it and the car to it's dealership and have them reset it. It will cost.
A/C keeps blowing the fuse after I
got it recharged. Its the R-12 system and it seemed to be ok before but
now I got it recharged and replaced the blower motor in the front and
now as soon as I turn it on it blows the fuse. I replaced the 3 fuse
black and even rewired the fuses then took off the connectors tot he
rotary switch and replaced those but it still blows the fuse. Any
Could I have messed something up on installing the blower motor.
