SOURCE: My security system coms on for no apparent reason

The security system (VATS/PassKey) is having problems, it's typical on those cars and it gets worse till the car won't start anymore. You can find a great write-up here: http://newrockies.ca , it was the only thing that saved my Park Avenue with the same system.

Open hood ensure new battery is disconnected.
Open main fuse panel cover under hood and remove horn relay (so you don't have to listen to the horn).
Use the key to lock the drivers door.
Connect the positive battery terminal.
Connect the negative battery terminal (security system will now activate, hazards lights will flash and horn would be going off if the relay was not removed).
Use the key to unlock the drivers door.
Get in, close drivers door.

Horn blows when door is opened


Your security system is being activated is my guess. have the dealer scan the system with a Tech 2 and see if the drivers door anti tamper switch is the problem.

This is your security system. Your van thought it was being stolen. Next time do not leave your keys in the van and lock the doors.

Changed the battery and now the horn blows and the lights flash, and won't turn over.


There is a wire from the drivers door lock to the security system. Try unlocking the driver's door with your key to see if this will disarm the system.

2002 Honda Odyssey security alarm system


Make sure your hood is shut. I just got my 2002 Honda Odyssey back from the dealer today (90,000 mile check-up - I love my van and will drive it until it dies!) and when I went to lock the van with my remote transmitter, the lights didn't flash and the horn didn't sound. I open and closed all the doors and tailgate and I could hear that the doors were locked, but the security system wasn't working and that is why the lights didn't blink or the horn didn't sound. I walked up to the front of the van to check the hood to make sure it was closed (there isn't an indicator light for an open hood, only open doors) and the hood wasn't shut completely. Once I opened the hood and let it drop to securely shut, I hit the door lock button on the remote and everything worked like a charm! Hope this helps others in this predicament.
