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.
I see this went unanswered for awhile, and you may already have fixed your problem, but you need to call Honda with the serial number of the stereo (found on back of stereo) in order to get the code. It is not the smartest move by Honda.
You will need to take the car to a deal and verify you are the rightful owner of the radio as this is the purpose of the code. Best of it. While at the dealer why not ask about any recalls on your car?
When you purchased the vehicle, there should have been an unlock code in the manual or on a card. This unlock code is related to the serial and model number of your stereo. If you lost it, contact Buick to get the code again.
Some Honda radios will give you their serial number by turning key to on position then push 1 and 6 button at the same time then turn on radio. It should display the radio serial number. You will need to give that number to a Honda dealer service advisor to search for the radio code. Or let the dealer do it for you. Sometimes people will put the number in the glove box door or operators manual because everytime Batt. power is lost or disconnected,you have to enter the code to get the radio and nav to work.
Your radio is probably showing up SAFE in the display because you disconnected the power supply. On this particular vehicle you have to re enter a security code to get the radio to work again.
You may find you have this security code somewhere in your service documentation or owners manuals if you have them. From the factory it is printed on a small card which often gets lost as the vehicle changes hands.
If you have lost thos code you can only obtain the code from a dealer by
1) Removing the stereo and getting the serial no that is stamped or printed on the back of it
2) Bringing this serial along with your cars VIN identifier (Chassis no) to a VW dealer who will run the numbers and give you the code you need to unlock the stereo.
