Question about 1995 Acura Legend

1 Answer

Hi, my name is Grace and I have a 1993 Acura Legend. Recently, my car's alarm system has been going off each time I open the door with the key or try to start it in the ignition. I'm unable to drive it anywhere. Only once did the valet key not trigger it, but it must have been a fluke. It is the factory alarm and I just want to completely remove it. Is it possible and will it cost an arm and a leg? Thank you for your time!

I had the same problem Grace and even mechanics could not figure it out at first. I called 3 Acura dealers to find answers.

Mine began acting up when a door lock broke and when it broke, the alarm started going off out of the blue.

But.....I want you to know that the drainage of electrical that the alarm drained my battery. Jumpstarted battery and alarm would immediately start back up and drain it again. In the end, it fried my alternator. It was pretty crazy because the radio was going off and on by itself with the alarm blaring and no way to shut it off.

Answer is there is no way to remove the alarm system because it is all integrated in by the factory, Acura dealers told me. Your car thinks it has been broken into once the alarm goes off like that, so keeps doing it. The fix was to insert my key into the driver or passenger door lock and turn the key back and forth 3X. That resets the alarm and stops the whole problem.

    This post is to Guest -- Once again, your car thinks it was broken into so will not start. When mechanic replaced my alternator they had the same prob as you are experiencing, the car was totally disabled and even with new alternator would not start. You have to put the key in the door lock and turn it back and forth 3X. If that does not work on the driver door lock, you can do it on the passenger side door lock with your key. It resets the whole alarm system and allows car to start.

I went to unlock the driver side door of my 91 acura legend and i guess i set factory alarm off.i do not have original key and my car wont start.. help p[lease!!!!!


The alarm must of activated , the alarm is controlled by the locks, go to passenger door and use the key to lock and then unlock the door, this will shut down alarm, you may have to use the passenger door to shut down alarm due to a bad switch in drivers door, this will allow you to start the car, you can also not lock door and alarm may not arm. let me know if the passenger door lock works, good day.

Security alarm goes off when unlocking the driver's side door.


If it's a factory security system and you're setting it off every time you unlock the door, it sounds like you have a replacement key and not the original factory "chip" key that likely came with the vehicle. You may end up having to do to your local Honda/Acura dealership to have them look up the factory chip code and cut you a new key with the chip that keeps the system from getting tripped. Hope this solves your problem and have a great day!

CAR ALARM DEACTIVATION


if the car only has a factory system, then you only need to insert the key to unlock the door to turn the alarm off. There should be a red light on the door panel that blinks and that should show you it's off, not sure try turning the key on the door twice. If it's aftermarket, get a replacement unit.

My security system continues to sound when you open up the locked door.


Hi,
I have a 1992 Acura Legend. If the alarm goes off when you open the door when the alarm is set you may have to close the door and put the key in the door lock and turn it clockwise to turn the alarm off.

Alarm system keeps going off on 1991 Acura Legend. Disabled horn to keep from bother neighbors all night, but lights flash and drain battery. How do I diable the alarm system. Car repair guy says he...


I had same problem, when a door lock broke, the car thinks it has been broken into once the alarm goes off. Mine started going off randomly when this lock broke. You have to reset the alarm system, with my 1990 Acura it was reset finally by putting key in door lock and turning key back and forth 3X. In my car, it was OK to do the key in door lock cycle in the passenger side door lock, but Acura dealer told me not all Acuras will reset it via passenger side key cycling, some require driver door lock key cycling only. I was lucky since my driver side door lock was currently useless, that my car allowed it to be done by key cycle on pass. door lock. But try that and if it doesn't fix it, just call acura dealerships until someone tells you the right answer. In my situation it took 3 dealerships with 3 different answers until this was the right one for my 1990 Legend.

PS I was told you can't disable alarm since it is all integrated into the battery and starting system, but read on another post that someone disableld theirs by disconnecting the horn.
