If battery was dead a long time, could have lost security code, if has the chip in key...need reprogram....if not I would check wiring for damage from rodents.

SOURCE: red light next to hazard light button blinks when

If it's a tiny red L.E.D. like a car alarm indicator, then it's to let you know the imobilizer is set, factory fitted and set to work from your key sensor(built into the ignition switch and key)

SOURCE: Radio wont work has err

You probably need to reset the security system to get the car to start. Try taking the key out of the ignition and locking the doors using the remote. Wait about 1 minute for the alarm to finish arming itself then unlock again with the remote and try to start it. The err mesage may be gone now, but if not, you may have to get your radio repaired.

Turned key in ignition got no responce tried connect to ecu unable to respond


With a voltmeter check out the main battery fuse cartridge located in the fuse box usually 3 or 4 of them bolted to fuse box you cant mistake them they are the largest physically in the fuse box , If this reads ok check your Battery Earth strap and Engine earth strap .sometimes the dash lights if these straps are poor but they can not carry enough power to complete circuit.

Do you have the red key?
very common on hondas they lose there immobilizer code when the battery dies, use the red key and also there is a proceedure to follow to reactivate it, if you dont have the red key then it will be expensive to fix.???

The remte control key is not responding with the car


Hi abdumi0f,

Firstly, open your glove box and make sure Valet Mode is not enabled, if it is not, follow these steps.

Step 1: Open drivers door and leave open.
Step 2: Lock and unlock the driver’s door using the power door lock switch on the door.
Step 3: Insert key into the ignition.
Step 4: Turn key to on position and return to off position. (IMPORTANT - use ON position NOT ACC position). Do this 3 times within 10 seconds. Leave key in the ignition.
Step 5: Open and close the driver’s door 3 times. (Door should be left open after this step).
Step 6: ECU should respond by locking and unlocking the doors.
Step 7: Press any button on remote #1 twice. ECU responds by locking and unlocking the car doors.
Step 8: Press any button on remote #2 (etc.) twice. Each time the ECU will respond by locking & unlocking the doors.
Step 9: Remove the key from the ignition and the ECU will respond a final time with a series of door locks and unlocks. You're done!

Hope this helps,

Remot control key is not communicating with car at all.


It is possible that the receiving unit on the vehicle is not operating properly. Whether that means a broken wire, bad circuitry in the receiver, or other problems it could the case, BUT more often than not, the key/remote was exposed to some kind of magnetic or high power field, effectively remdering the unit useless. Strong magnets, electromagnetic fields or even staying to long on a department store demagnetizer could lead to these problems. Go to the dealer and be prepared to take the hit, a replacement coded key can run several hundred dollars, but unless you swapped the battery and happened to get a bad new battery, than the dealer is the only solution, I hope this brief explaination shed a little light for you in the future.

My battery died after recharging it the alarm buttom needs to be reset. I need to know where the reset buttom is


HI ! I haven' t researched your car for you just yet !

I thought Id quickly mention the common method for reprogramming your alarm & remote, If you still require assistance then just ask me and I will find more about your car :)

Common Methods for resetting/re-learning code

  • Factory Fitted Alarms/ Central Locking / remote comes on ignition key.

Insert ignition key , turn key to accessories / red , press & hold lock/unlock for a few secs.remove key,exit vehicle and try un/lock doors &/or alarm (Some models differ slightly & require engine on or manual use of door locks whilst resetting.

  • Aftermarket /Non-Factory / remote is separately operated
Most use a small back-up battery usually located within the loudspeaker/Alarm unit itself under the bonnet,
Remove this battery for a short period to reset the remote code


The access panel for the backup battery is never in an obvious place. look carefully :)
