I have a Jan 2006 Honda Civic 1.8 exec. I had a totally flat battery, recharged it, the security alarm sounded and wouldn't switch off. I put in a brand new battery, connected positive first, no difference.

Have tried key fob buttons, tried locking/unlocking door twice. Tried locking/unlocking from interior. All doors, boot, bonnet checked shut. Tried all these a few times. Car turns over but cant start, siren continues. Any ideas, please? I tried asking Honda dealer, they had no idea.

Do a search on civinfo.com - they probably suffer with the same thing 7th gens did; the siren battery loses it's charge and either needs replacing or resetting. Or the chipboard is buggered and could need replacing.

I was told by a Honda technician that it may just need resetting at a dealership, before leaving the car running long enough for the siren battery to regain enough charge. But he did say it may work without having to be reset too.

Cop out!

I very much doubt it needed the work they said, there's plenty of stories of people paying over £1000 for various alarm problems on the Type R site and then people with the same kind of problem only paying £100...

Oh and if it does need a new one then I hope you told them to do one?! As you might as well get a decent one instead - like a toad a1606 :)

One that works instantly rather than giving the thief 30 seconds before going off. Lol

I am having a problem were there is a drain somewhere on the battery, after buying a new battery and having the same issue, an auto electrician has had it for 2 weeks and can't find the problem, he has told me it needs to go to Honda and he has been told by a Honda technician it is a known problem with the alarm system and that would need replacing...any ideas on what this is going to cost me??? I get the feeling my wallet is going to take a kicking!!!

Cheers

If it's a known problem it could be that they'll fix it for free.

They did recall a lot of the '06 ones to fix a problem like this years ago. My parents one had it done - and also had a new windscreen due to the wrong seals being fitted.

Stick your vin number in here and see if there's any recalls outstanding on it: http://www.honda.co.uk/cars/owners/youa ... ndupdates/
