Question about 1992 Acura Vigor
I lost my remote door opener for my '92 Vigor many years ago, so I've been using the key to open it. For the past year, when I use the key to open the door, the alarm is activated (horn blows). Turning the key in the lock used to stop the alarm, but now nothing I do will stop the alarm. The horn continues to blow for the 2 minute time period before shutting off. What is causing this? Could it be a fuse? Does somthing need greasing?
Very common issue with the vigor, it`s the power door actuator or something...there are 2 ways to fix it:
- the harder way (unless you`re half-decent at DIY car stuff, which I`m not), all you really are doing is cleaning the contacts..a detailed guide is here
- OR the easy way is to just trick your car into thinking the hood is open so the alarm will never arm itself. Taken from another post:
You can effectively permanently disable the alarm (who actually bothers to respond when they hear a car alarm anyways?) by opening up the hood and finding the little switch that detects whether the hood is closed. Just bend this so that the alarm system always thinks the hood is open and the alarm system will never arm even if you lock the doors.
