Accessory Security System Changes Modes By Itself
(Supersedes 05-025, dated June 10, 2005, to update the information indicated by black bars and asterisks.)
The security system will not arm or it arms by itself.
Key switch contact chatter causes the control unit to change modes.
* Civic: Replace the security control unit, and reprogram the remote(s).*
* CR-V and Element: Replace the security control unit and the microphone, then reprogram the remote(s).*
You must replace the microphone on the CR-V and Element because the security control units are matched to their microphones when they are
manufactured. Using the original microphone may result in security system problems.*
