My car alarm starts to go off for one of the 2 reasons(rain and heavy winds OR when hood is opened) or a combination of both
Last fall, I took it to the local mechanic for an inspection and brought the car home(it was very windY), the alarm went off within half hour.
Last monday, I took the car to the local honda dealer, they couldnt reproduce the issue. Nor offer me any helpful info. Glad I didnt have to pay the 120 in diagnosis fees!
I called American honda owner link, this is what I was instructed - when the alarm goes off, using the master key insert it into the driver door and turn all the way to left, then all the way to the right and then all the way to the left. The alarm stopped, I took out the key and unlocked the car and locked it, it armed itself again! I thought problem solved!
Yesterday, I came back from a timing belt service and it rained last night and the alarm went off this morning.
I have removed the horn relay since it has been going off every 5 minutes.
One thing I noticed is that when I press hte lock key, the LED light on the drivers door blinks 8 times and pause and then starts blinking every 2 seconds. After the call to American honda, it probably blinked 6 times before pausing and blinking every 2 seconds. Is there any secret code to this? Is the Honda Accord telling me something? Please help. This id driving me nuts.
Also, is it possible to disable the hood latch security thing so that the ACU always thinks the hood is closed?
Your help is most appreciated.A really sleepless and helpless owner
