I have a question regarding another 2001 Honda Civic I have. It is an automatic, the key flashes constantly on the dash. Which is the immobilizer, but from what I have researched, if that continues to flash, the car will not start. This car starts, but acts like it is in limp mode and cannot go over 45 mph.
Do you
have the same problem?

I read the instructions, but my car doesnt have the key fob with it. Just a regular key. I bought it used in this condition.

When I use my key to get into my carthe alarm goes off. My keyless entry remote is not working and I tried a new battery and it still doesnt work. When I put the key in the dorr to unlock it, the alarm goes off. It will stop after a few seconds. Then I get in and when I put the key in the ignition, the alarm goes off again. Do I need a new keyless entry? If so where can I get it for cheap? And sdo I have to get it programmed to my car? If not, whats wrong with my car?

Hi acroxford,

I would suggest reprogramming the remote to see if it helps.

DISARMING SECURITY SYSTEM

Without Remote Transmitter (EX, HX & LX)
Enter vehicle, turn ignition switch to ON position and press disarm/valet button located on left side of dash. The disarm switch will also disarm the system after alarm has been triggered.

PROGRAMMING
REMOTE TRANSMITTERS

NOTE: Up to 3 transmitter codes can be stored in keyless receiver unit memory. If a fourth code is entered, the first code stored will be erased. It is important to maintain time limits between steps, otherwise process will need to be repeated.

1. Turn ignition switch to ON position. Within 1-4 seconds, aim transmitter at vehicle and push lock or unlock button. Within 1-4 seconds, turn ignition switch off.
2. To program next transmitter, within 4 seconds, repeat step 1. Confirm that door lock actuators can be heard every time a transmitter code is entered.
3. Within 4 seconds after programming last transmitter, turn ignition switch to ON position. Within 8 seconds, aim transmitters at vehicle and press lock or unlock buttons. Confirm door lock actuator operation after each transmitter entry. Turn ignition switch off. Remove key and confirm proper operation of transmitters.

I put the car in the garage over the winter. Did not run it. Tried to start it. Dead. Used my wife's car to jump me. Did not work. In fact, it set off the alarm that I inactivated several years ago. So, went to Walmart and bought a new battery. The old one had expired. Installed the battery, went I put the positive and negative connections the alarm went off again. I can now shift the gears, use the wipers, windows, etc. Before I could not even shift gears. Every time I touch the car or bump it the alarm is set off. If I open the door it sets it off. I can insert the key and shift gears, but, it will not turn over. Could there be another problem that I am not
seeing? Alternator or what? I appreciate any direction on this. Thank you.

Also, when I look inside the car I can see that the light which is connected to the alarm system is blinking rapidly and has been since I installed the new battery.

Hi GORDON,

Is the alarm an aftermarket unit? If so it is in full swing and you need to remove it. If it is a factory alarm the module has shorted out and needs to be replaced.

Let me know what you find

Best, Ken

Hi Jimish81,

When engine is running, the security system cannot be activatd unless the power from the ignition is interupted.

Are you sure it is the security system that is locking or the engine stalled?

If it is locking, I would suggest checking the ignition switch.

Hi, thank you for your response,
well I am not sure either its a security system or my ignition problem but wherever I stops my car after 4-5 seconds car lock sound comes and also if I break the car after that alarm starts so compulsory I had to unlock my car by remote and then continue. Can you tell me whats the solution some days ago it stops working and mechanic shown one wire was outside from the horn system of alarm so he fixed that by rejoining that. Now he said I don't know much more about this so I asked one of the security alarm mechanic too he suggested to fit new alarm system with 200 dollars I don't want to do like this please tell me what shall I do?

Is the alarm factory or after market?

When engine is started (or ignition is turned ON), the alarm system would be notified via power supply from the ignition switch and be disarmed. Your problem should be this voltage signal is not received by the alarm control unit and after 4-5 seconds the alarm self-arms.

While braking, one of the doors switch is activated, possibly due to door out of adjustment and the door switch is barely pushed. Door movement during braking would cause the switch to activate thus triggering the alarm.

Does the door ajar/dome light flickers during braking or uneven road driving conditions?

The keyless entry gizmo has started to work intermittantly. There is no pattern to the problem. It sometimes works and sometimes does not. It doesn't matter where I stand; in front, in back, either side, or close or farther away. I have replaced the battery twice just in case I may have gotten a bad one. No change. Any thoughts?

I had an issue like this with my original keyless fobs that came with the car when I bought it in 00. I recently (about a year ago) replaced my fobs with one from an eBay store - used, but had a new battery included - and that seems to work a lot better - and I get better range too.

It seems like it's a different "model" of keyless fob, perhaps for the 01 model or they just updated the original 00 model, but it works pretty well, very pleased with the 30 bucks I spent on the new fob.

Hi, I have a litle question, is the 1999 Civic Keyless remote FCC ID#A269ZUA106 compatible with my 1998 LX that from factory use a FCC ID#A269ZUA101
I have no remotes at this time but I have the OEM Radio, I think that all LX models with OEM radio accept Keyless remotes, can some one correct me if I am wrong. Thanks.

alarm from my friend which is called CNSAC. Some of the wires on the alarm diagram I have no idea where to connect them to. Here is a picture of the wiring diagrams, I labeled each wire with numbers on the alarm wiring diagram and letters on the car wiring diagram so it will be easier.

Ok so here is what I know:
1=k
3=l
8=h
9=r
10 = ground
11 = a
12 = j
13 = j

Here is what I dont know:
14, 15, 16, 17, 18, 19

Here is what I dont think I need:
4, 5, 6, 7 because that is just to shut off the engine in case of theft correct?
2 because I am using 3 since it is a negative door trigger

Start with a battery test first before going anywhere. It may a simple repair. Basics first.

If you do not have even a slight click while turning the key, it most probably is not the starter or battery. The immobilizer would be the cause.

Try using a remote wire to jump the starter solenoid with battery voltage to test if it cranks.
