Question about 2004 Honda Accord

1 Answer

Key Fob does not work and alarm goes off when raining

I have a 2004 Honda Accord EX. This only happens after it has been raining for a while and the car has been locked with the alarm set. When I go out to open the car, the key fob will not open the door. It essentially does not work at all. When I open the car door with the key the alarm goes off and I cannot turn the alarm off. Eventually the alarm goes off and I drive the car. I have brought it to the dealer multiple times and they have replaced the battery but nothing else. I have never had this issue when it is dry. Does anyone else have any ideas, the Honda delaer has been useless?

The central locking control unit is in the drivers door. there's a polythene sheet in the door panel. If that's ripped or petrified then rain may be screwing with the electrics. it may be worth taking off the door panel and wrapping it the controll unit in a shopping bag or summat.....

2002 honda accord, alarm goes off after about ten minutes when I lock doors from inside with the power locks. I don't have a FOB for the car just the key, any reason why this is happening?


If you lock the car from outside with the key does it happen? If still goes off recomend replace alarm, if not alarm not reading doors locked from auto door locking system

How do I shut off my alarm?


Getting into a car that has the security system by unlocking the door with the key will set the alarm off. Usually you can relock and unlock the door with the key and the alarm will be turned off. There are several things that can set off an alarm depending on the sensors, so do you have a remote key FOB and if so does it work. I am including a link to Honda Tech article that may help you out:

My honda alarm keeps going off while car locked


there are sensors in each lock cylinder, trunk, and hood latch. Is it an ex? try locking the car with the remote, then use the key to unlock each door, if the alarm goes off, that's the bad switch. look in your fuse panels and see, I'm pretty sure if you pull the fuse to disable the alarm, you will lose your power locks
