Hi,

There is a way to Override the alarm issue. This is common in Honda Cars.

KEY IN AND IN THE ON POSITION JUST BEFORE CRANKING,
PRESS AND HOLD IN THE VALET SWITCH/BUTTON,
FOUND UNDER THE DASH AREA, UNTIL YOU
GET A CHIRP FROM THE HORN, AND MAYBE A FLASH OF
THE LIGHTS. THEN KEY OFF.

This procedure would let you toggle into and out of
override on most alarms.

Let me know if it does with yours too.

Once reset, you would not have any issue regarding the Start.

Let me know if the problem still persists.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and Have a nice day!!

Honda crv 04' key won't turn over & I'm stranded


if your battery isnt dead (try boosting it) then check to make sure the car is in park all the way and try again if nothing happens you need a new starter. alot of people dont put the shifter all the way back to park and that keeps it from starting.

The battery in my 1998 Honda CRV works fine. Had a problem with the key sticking, now the key turns in the ignition but won't catch to start the car. Not sure what to do


Sounds like the ignition switch is worn out(or the linkage from the lock cylinder to the switch has come loose or something like that)

The lock button on my key fobs will not lock the doors on 06 honda crv


CHeck to see if it is the right battery - Should be a CR1616 - previous year models, had a different battery.

Does the light come on on the key fob, when you push the button?

You may have to reprogram the remote - check the owners manual for instructions - if you can't find them...

Programming the Transmitter
NOTES:
• The system accepts up to three transmitters. The
transmitter codes are stored in a stacking-type
memory. If a fourth transmitter code is programmed,
the code for the first transmitter is erased.
• Entering the programming mode cancels all learned
transmitter codes, so none of the previously
programmed transmitters will work. You must
reprogram all of the transmitters once you are in the
programming mode.
• You must complete each step within 4 seconds of
the previous step to keep the system from exiting the
programming mode. Program the transmitters within
10 seconds.

1. Turn the ignition switch to ON (II).
2. Press the "Lock" or "Unlock" button on one of the
transmitters. (An unprogrammed transmitter can be
used for this step.)
3. Turn the ignition switch to LOCK (0).
4. Repeat steps 1, 2, and 3 two more times using the
same transmitter used in step 2.
5. Turn the ignition switch to ON (II).
6. Press the "Lock" or "Unlock" button on the same
transmitter. Make sure the power door locks cycle
to confirm that the system is in programming mode.
7. Within 10 seconds, press the "Lock" or "Unlock"
button on each transmitter. Make sure the power
door locks cycle after you press each transmitter
button to confirm that the system accepted the transmitter's code.
8. Turn the ignition switch to LOCK (0) to exit programming mode.


IF so, and more likely, the fuse on the car side of the remote, is probably gone.

Keyless remote stopped working, I replaced battery


The 1997 to 2003 Dodge Caravan and Grand Caravan use a standard key and remote setup with a separate remote fob. However, the 2004 to 2009 Dodge Caravan and Grand Caravan use a combination key and remote on one device. To program a new keyless entry remote for the 1997 to 2003 Dodge Caravan, you must have at least one functional remote, which is required to enter synchronization mode. To program the combination key for the 2004 to 2009 Dodge Caravan, you must have two functional combination keys. If you do not, you'll need to see an authorized Dodge dealer for keyless entry programming assistance.


2004 to 2009 Caravan Programming Instructions
  1. Insert one of your working combination keys into the ignition. Turn it to "On"; leave it in this position for about 10 seconds but no longer than 15 seconds. Turn it to "Off" and remove it.
  2. Insert your second working combination key into the ignition within 15 seconds of removing the previous key. Turn it to "On". After 10 seconds, you'll hear a chime and the "Theft" light will begin to flash, entering synchronization mode. Turn the key to "Off" and remove it.
  3. Insert the combination key you want to program. Turn it to "On." After 10 seconds, you'll hear a chime; then the "Theft" light will turn off. When the light turns off, the combination key--including the key and the remote--is programmed.
  4. Repeat Step Three for each combination key you want to program. A total of eight can be programmed.
Hope this help (remember comment and rated).

Honda Element doors auto lock when keys in ignition.how to stop?


Actually, some other Honda models have a similar function, actuated by a combination of drive gear and road speed, but no Honda Element was ever factory equipped to automatically lock the doors when running. Its's a feature provided by some aftermarket keyless entry and/or security systems.
The Honda Elements' normal operation re-locks the doors if they are remotely unlocked, but a door isn't physically opened within 15-30 seconds. This is only supposed to happen when the keyless remote receiver signals the multiplex control unit to open the drivers door.

Open the drivers' window, take the battery out of the remote control fob, and see if the problem persists. If so, unplug the connector of keyless receiver module., and test again. If there's not a good electrical connection on all 4 pins of the KRU, or if the KRU is bad, that could cause your problem. Alsocheck G501. .
