My Honda odyssey van was sitting for about 2-3 weeks without being moved. I thought I would go out and start it because it had been unused for so long.
The remote would not open the door, in fact, the alarm started to go off when I tried the remote. I then opened the door manually but the alarm would still not be silent. I can tell the battery is low because the alarm sound is weak and slows when I open and close the door.
The ignition is dead because the alarm is going. Panel lights come on but are dim, clock still goes but at wrong time.
I cant jump start the battery because the car is immobile because the alarm disarms stuff.
I have Googled and tried advice like turn the key left then all the way right and that should turn the alarm off - doesn't work. I have looked for the small button meant to be at knee level to turn off the alarm - cant find it.
Not sure if it is factory fitted alarm or after factory fitted.
To cut all that story short - how do I disconnect the alarm - thanks so much.
have the same problem?
