My 2004 accord came with a remote starter. If you press the lock button on the remote fob twice, the engine will start as against the beep indicating the vehicke is armed.
I have these questions:
1. Does this remote starter allow you to drive the car without using the key?
I tried this once, but once I tried inserting the key into the ignition, the engine stopped and had to use the key normally. I have not tried again (Bought and took delivery of this car about 3 months ago)
2. what purpose does this remote starter serve if doe not allow driving without the key
3. How can I remove this remore starter option and return the normal functionality of beeping?

Re: remote starter on a 2004 Accord with V6 engine
Remote starter is designed to shut down the vehicle if there is no key to drive with. This is a security feature so that unauthorzed drivers cannot steal it. to answer second question the purpose of remote starters is to allow you to heat up the vehicle so it is an ice cube when you are ready to drive. Not sure what remote I cannot answer the horn question. Need more on what remote starter you have model number and make

The only time my doors don't lock with the remote is when a door is open. If your problem is mechanical it wouldn't unlock. Might be a sensor thinking a door is open. Does the other functions with the remote work like rolling the windows down or hitting the lock button flashes the light ? I can't lock my doors from the inside with the remote.
