Electrical problems but not sure where
Have read many posts in here. Searched many also. but my problem seems to be a little bit of many post, so started a new one.
Cold snap in January battery went flat. Checked battery with meter 11.8v. So jump started with no key in ignition. Car started no problems. Took for a run to charge battery. All ok except rear lock would not work. Thought not a big problem. So I would leave until had time to go to dealer.
Week ago decided to check rear lock again before I take it to dealer. Lock worked to my surprise. Thought ok cool no expense there, all is good. 2 days later go to use car, totally dead. No battery life at all. So put a meter on battery measured 6.4v. Thought to my self way to low. So decided to get new battery. Fitted new battery (No key in ignition again, Because I know about the key problem). Alarm siren going. Thought putting key in ignition would stop alarm, No. Went to try start car, keys not recognised. Immobiliser kicking in. Called dealer, said keys need programming. Ok got car there with AA. They reprogrammed keys, got car started. But the alarm is still going off. Said they need to talk to Honda monday see if there is another reset for alarm they do not know about. Otherwise I would need a new alarm unit.
Is all these things related? (Rear lock / battery drain so quickly)
or have all these problems been alarm related from start?
Anybody got any ideas?
Thanks in advance
