Hi,
I have SORN my car during the lockdown. forgot to start the car for 12 days.
When I wanted to start the car to avoid battery dying, pressed the unlock button from key and security alarm started and the battery was on las breath, tried jump start didn't work.
and the car was not starting, and then I got immobiliser Issue (Green key flashing).
Now that issue is fixed with a scanner and the car is started (doing my self with a friend help) BUT the security alarm is not leaving me alone, its keep beaming.

Can't afford taking it to Honda, any help or suggestions will be appreciated.
thanks
Fadi

From memory ..... The alarm only turns off via the keyfob unlock. This was often an issue if you unlocked the car by using the door keyhole. If your fob has an issue then this will likely be the cause.

As much as you don't want to it may need to be a dealer fix unless someone else knows.

If you perform a search here there are posts where dealers have charged as little as £15 to recode an existing key. Worth getting a quote.
