My 1998 Honda CRV has a factory installed security system. It works sometimes but not others. I gave up and started just using the key after several times the lock worked but the unlock would not work. This often happened in the rain when I would have to dance around the car pushing the unlock button multiple times to open the doors. It has been to several dealers. Sometimes it works for the dealer and they tell me there is no problem. Other times it does not work and they tell me I need to replace the entire system for $700. I got a clue when I was in Phoenix for 4 months and in the dry air it worked pretty consistently. When it got back to the Texas humidity it rarely worked. It seems that the humidity is causing some sort of problem. The dealer tells me this is not possible and I should just replaced the unit. I know I can install a Viper unit for a lot less than the dealer's $700. Given these symptoms, can you suggest anything I might do to isolate and fix the honda system problem?
have the same problem?
