My accord has a keyless entry system (Black widow) and it seems like i'm usually not able to turn my car on without the remote. and every once in a while it won't start at all (as in the starter won't even turn over.) i think it may be a sensor that overheats in the car but recently it even gave me problems on a cool day after only about 20 min of driving. can someone plese tell me how to get rid of the keyless entry system so i don't have to deal w. this? or at least how to replace or keep the sensor from overheating? otherwise it's going to cost me $70 to have somone disconnect something that might not even be the problem.
My guess is that you would have to get the users manual for your car alarm to change it's settings. There is a procedure that will allow you to use the passive arming so you can maually activate it or not. I have the viper, and this is how I set my alarm.

Depending on the specification of your vehicle, the FOB generally serves one (or both) of the following functions:
1) Communicate with the vehicle's Keyless Entry system (operates central locking). 2) When inserted into the ignition, the transponder within the key will communicate with the vehicle's Body computer (BEM) to validate entry, before disengaging the immobilizer - allowing the vehicle to start.
When the key fob fails, you may lose functionality of the above systems.
Keyless entry failure - usually due to flat battery in the fob. Reprogramming of keyless entry can be done without dealership assistance.
Transponder/Immobilizer failure - this requires the key fob to be re-programmed by your local dealership.
probably sensor for keyless entry,but would not advise u too get this from a junk yard as the sensors are vin specific,will put ur car into anti-theft mode then u will have to replace the body control computer,have a dealer order u a keyless entry sensor vin specific for ur car,these are usually under dash up top middle area its a little black box,will have to remove dash pad or dash to replace.
To program ( or reprogram ) a keyless entry remote transmitter into the remote keyless entry module, perform the following steps:
1. Turn the key to ON or ACC and short the two terminals of the program connector, a two-pin connector located below the driver's side of the instrument panel at the base of the steering column. All doors should lock and then unlock. 2. Press any button on each keyless entry remote transmitter in turn. All doors should lock and then unlock. If the door locks do not respond, press the button again (up to three times maximum with the same keyless entry remote transmitter). If the door locks still fail to respond, go to Pinpoint Test A. 3. Repeat Step 2 to program additional keyless entry remote transmitters into the remote keyless entry module (up to four keyless entry remote transmitters maximum). 4. Turn key off. 5. Remove the short from the program connector. All doors should lock and then unlock. 6. Verify that the keyless entry remote transmitters have been successfully programmed by pressing the LOCK or UNLOCK button on each one, and observing that the system responds by locking and/or unlocking the doors.
Try re-programing the system.
These are the instructions from the service manual.
. Turn ignition from OFF to RUN 5 times within 10 seconds, with the 5th time ending in RUN. Door locks will cycle to confirm programming mode. 2. Within 20 seconds press any button on first keyless remote. Door locks will cycle to confirm programming. 3. Within 20 seconds, press any button on second keyless remote. Door locks will cycle again to confirm programming. 4. Turn ignition to OFF. Locks will again cycle to indicate end of programming mode.
You might try Opening the Door and Opening the Hood and Disconnecting the Battery. This should reset the System. If this is the Factory Keyless Entry, There is a Relay and a Fuse for this. Check them and see if they are Bad or Blown.
You got the Wrong Information! Go to Wal Mart and Purchase a "Bulldog Security Keyless Entry" System for your Car. It will cost you a Quarter of the Price and is Just asw Reliable as the Factory Unit! Got one on My Truck with Remote Start also and it works GREAT! Should cost about $50.00 Bucks or so.
actually your car has to have keyless entry, it's part of the alarm system that is given you problems. I had a similar issue with my 87 camery, sounds like they still haven't fixed it in 96.. anyway the fix was for me to take the VIN number over to my local dealer dish out about 35 bucks and get the remote control unit for the alarm system. That also gives you keyless entry :).. So for 35 bucks it was well worth the investment.
In order to disable the alarm there should be a red or black button under the streering colum to left side. You must put the ignition in the run position, and then hold this button for thirty seconds it should disable the alrm until you repeat that procedure.
