possible alarm fault

its been 3 months since we bought our civic and no problems yet, there is however a problem with my uncles 2006 civic.

the key fob is no longer working, i know it wants a battery but the Philips screw drivers i have are either too big or worn out so my uncle has been locking it using the key and the indicators would flash as normal.

when he was in India the alarm went off one night and my granddad managed to disarm it and now the indicators no longer flash when he locks it.

any idead? i havnt tried locking our civic with the key to see if the indicators flash.

I think this usually indicates one of the locking sensors is playing up, could be wrong though

Most likely the bonnet sensor switch.

Pop the hood and under the locking latch there is a switch, just disconnect the cable going into it

ask grandad what exactly he did to disarm it!
did he have to tamper with any wiring or anything?

my granddad doesnt know much about modern cars, let alone wiring for the alarm. older car he knows a fair bit as he used to fix his cars when he lived in kenya.

well im pleased to say its sorted. my uncle phoned me at work saying his battery had gone flat and was going to get a new one. fitted the new battery and indicators now flashing when locking.
