Honda Accord: Security System - Features - Honda Accord 2008-2012 Owner's ManualHonda Accord: Security System

The security system helps to protect your vehicle and valuables from theft.

The horn sounds and a combination of headlights, parking lights, side marker lights and taillights flashes if someone attempts to break into your vehicle or remove the audio unit.

This alarm continues for two minutes, then the system resets. To reset an activated system before the two minutes have elapsed, unlock the driver’s door with the key or the remote transmitter.

The security system automatically sets 15 seconds after you lock the doors, hood, and trunk. For the system to activate, you must lock the doors from the outside with the key, driver’s lock tab, door lock master switch, or remote transmitter. The security system indicator on the instrument panel starts blinking immediately to show you the system is setting itself.

Once the security system is set,

Once the security system is set, opening either door without using the key or the remote transmitter, the hood, or the trunk will cause the alarm to activate. It will also activate if the audio unit is removed from the dashboard or the wiring is cut.

With the system set, you can still open the trunk with the remote transmitter without triggering the alarm. The alarm will sound if the trunk lock is forced, or the trunk is opened with the trunk release lever or the emergency trunk opener.

The security system will not set if the hood, trunk, or either door is not fully closed. If the system will not set, turn the ignition switch to the ON (II) position, and check the indicators on the instrument panel.

Close either door or the trunk indicated on the display. Check the hood visually since it is not part of the display, and shut it if necessary.

NOTE:

Use the remote transmitter to quickly check that the hood, the trunk, and both doors are closed.

Push the lock button twice within 5 seconds. There should be an audible confirmation beep.

Do not attempt to alter this system or add other devices to it.
