Hi, I have a steal stopper alarm which came with my honda civic 97, I changed the battery and now the alarm wont work. How do I reset the alarm. When I re-connected the battery the alarm chirps but does...

there might be a hidden switch under your ood or dash that you need to push to before doing any electrical work like on mine. If you dont push that switch it could short circuit your system. I would find that switch and try to reset it by pushing it in and then back out.

My new cd player wont turn off in my 1999 Honda Civic

The problem is you have the two wires hooked together. It's back feeding. One has to be hooked to key power. and one to all time power.

My 96 honda civic has a idle problem. I gotta charge my battery daily...we got a new alternator and its a brand new cell battery but the idle goes low and every light within the car including the dash, cd...

Check the battery cable connections at both ends for loose or corroded connections. I would also insure that the drive belt and connections to the alternator or good and tight. You also want to check relevant fuses.
If all this checks out then there could be a "sneak" circuit draining the battery somewhere. You could verify this by connecting an ammeter between the battery positive terminal and the battery with the key off, it should read zero or very very close to it. If you are seeing more than a few tenths of an amp current flow (preferably less) then I would start tracking through the wiring beginning with any new electronics that have been installed or repaired lately.

Civic 97 sohc vtec wont start

The need for the trans to be in park or neutral is a safety feature on all automatics called a detente. This prevents the vehicle from starting in gear and taking of out of control. As for the starting problem, if the battery is good and you even tried to jump it with another car the best place to start is at the battery terminals for corrosion.Remove the cables and with some sand paper, not to rough, clean the both the terminal and cable end to a shin before replacing.
If it still won't start than check all the connections on the starter motor. Do the same thing to all the connections that you did to the battery. After replacing the terminals on the battery and starter coat them with a terminal spray to protect them.

93 civic wont start

My mind goes to battery, starter, or kill switch.
If you can play the radio and the lights are working, but you get nothing when you try to start it (not even a clicking sound), it's not likely the starter, either.
You may have a kill switch engaged. Some Honda cars have a kill switch that disables the engine from starting. (Anti-theft device installed). Check your user Guide to see if there is info there.
Often, there is a button you need to push or some other trigger to release the lockout.
Here is what I would try:
1. Conact the seller, if you can, to inquire.
2. Call AAA. They may know the various options, and did help me when I had trouble.
3. Call a Honda dealer to inquire about options for disabling it.

Good luck.
