Didn't your alarm come with a second alarm control? Did you look in the manual that came with the alarm to see if there was anything to help you?

I know I'm a pessimist, but this sounds like you want to break into someone else's CR-V that has an alarm and are asking us to tell you how to disable it. Especially since you just joined HondaSUV.com today!

Well, i appreciate your honesty, but as you see I have posted my e-mail address (maybe this is not important to you) but I work from the Interamerican Development Bank which is an international bank and I will be in trouble if I try to do something like that , If i wanted to still i car I will be so stupid to put my e-mail address but maybe you are rigth, who will know that I am trying ot stole a car but this is the history of my car.,

I have a Civic car 2002 wich I have my 2 set of keys
I have my CR-V that I bougth in 2001. My car is 1998 with 170000 miles. When I bougth in 2001 it had only 128000, anyway..I don't know why I am saying all these but the thing is when I got the car they gave me only 2 sets of keys since it was used and it was my first car I didn't know how many copies I supposed to get, so I got one with the alarm and the other with out alarm, that is the one that I have, what someone told me is that maybe I should contact the dealer and asd them to send me a copy of the alarm (which I am sure I will ahve to pay ) but with my VIN number they will be able to do it.

Anyway. I am not trying to do anything agains anybody, I am trying just to open my car.
Thank you anyway.

Are you sure you have an alram and not just keyless entry? Also is it a honda alarm?

05-10-2004, 10:21 AM
Since all of you already know all this about CR-V could you please let me know then If is possible to get my second copy from the Dealer? Where they supposed to provided me with 2 set of copies with the alarm? If thas is true then I will be able to go and ask fo the second one even I bougth my car almost 3 years ago.

What other options do I have that are the cheapest one?


05-10-2004, 10:26 AM
Number one I don't know what is keyless entry? I am so sorry but as I said my english is not wery ggod yet.

Here is what I know. The alarm had a HONDA on it and I bougth the car from a HONDA dealer, so I guess it was honda.

Eerytime I got out of the car I put my alarm (click) and after that when I opened my car I had to click again the alarm, otherwise the car will be beeping.

When I take the car to the maintenance I don't put the alarm , only close all the doors using the main door and they get lock.

I just want to say thank you for taking the time to help me out.

I DON;T NEED TO SMASH THE WINDOW, I have the key, but the beeping will start until I disconect the alarm, but thinking of what somebody else said before it wil be a good idea to get to know people who still cars, they will be able to help me.

the thing is that I am a DBA (Data base adminsitrator ) so I work with computers and we have the connection ON all day because we receive e-mails, we have to do research and thousands of things here at the bank so I am able to access the answers rigth away but I didn't know that was a secret, when you mention that it seems that I am doing a sin or something like that, well, as I said before , I am so proud to be mexican because we use to trust people, not like all of you.

Thats rude.

05-10-2004, 11:44 AM
The problem is that, at least in the US, the CR-V didn't come with a factory installed alarm, which means the VIN will be useless to you. I think the best bet is for you to talk to your dealer and see what they can suggest.

In the US, some models came with a keyless entry device that you push to unlock or lock the doors. It looks like a remote alarm device, but it's only for the doors.

Worst case, you open the door then you can open the engine hood and disconnect the alarm. Of course it will probably go off. As to how to disconnect it? Thats why you should talk to the dealer.


05-10-2004, 12:26 PM
if you bought this thing from a Honda dealership then call that dealership and they will be happy to provide you with assistance...there is a way to disconnect it BUT to do this you will have to take the dash apart and itll take alot of time....if you are tryin to steal a CR-V you'd be better off loading it on a flatbed tow truck as it will take about 15 min to take apart the dash to disconnect the module....if you arent stealing a car and this thing is yours legit then you can call the dealer and they will ba happy to help you out. ....Axeiom, you wont need to "hotwire" the car simply insert a dent puller with a high quality tempered steel sheet metal screw twist it in about 3/4 of the way and whack it out a few times, insert a screwdriver and you're off....thats the most popular way to get hondas WITHOUT starter disable systems around here...one of the worst things about honda. The only car that was easier to steal was the Dodge cars up to 98' with the "glo-ring" around the ign. When i went into the police academy in 96' they were the most stolen cars in history....ever wonder why "Lo-Jack" was exclusive to Dodge at start? its because the ignition was able to be disabled in under 5 seconds flat with a flat head screwdriver. This is general information available on alot of anti-theft sites and Police sites to alert the public to ways your vehicles are stolen so that you can make it harder for criminals. If you have a steering wheel lock like "The Club" they are easily defeated as well. The best anti-theft measures we have found are the transponder chips that you have to insert under the column or dash before you start the car, a car with a factory transpopnder or "chip" in the keys are good as well. Grant sold a steering wheel that you could remove when you left the car and replace the steering splines with a case hardened steel cover, those were awesome i had one on my show truck. that brake pedal lock works pretty good as well. Bottom line is if a criminal wants your car bad enough it is GONE! i have heard cases with collector cars where a criminal waited for the owner and took the device that disarmed the security device at gunpoint. I can understand the reasoning behind your reluctance to discuss the location of the alarm module with a new member, he can as well as you or me, go to a dealer and they can tell him how to access the module. Good looking out for your fellow CR-V owners. My advice to you new guy is call Honda, and if you are (which we arent saying you are) stealing cars better hope the police catch you and not the gun weilding , extremely pissed owner who is awoke at 2 am by glass breaking or their alarm going off. ;)

1) see a Honda dealer.
2) I would be surprised if the the gen 1 CR-V had chips in the keys. (gen 1 owners respond here)
3) Security systems are add ons. The one in your car may not be from Honda.
4) See a Honda dealer.

To put some of your concerns at ease:

caro1216's post were posted from the following location based upon IP traffic:
OrgName: Inter-American Development Bank
Address: 1300 New York Avenue, N.W.
City: Washington

The Gen1 was sold with remote locking, but I can't remember if it came OEM with an imobilizer/alarm, but I believe it did. (I remember having the remote locking honk at unsuspecting passers by from my apartment window *LOL*)

For a dealer to reprogram a second fob, you need to have the car there, so unless the dealer is willing to drive up to your location with the required fob and tools, you may need to have it towed there.


05-13-2004, 10:37 PM
Carolina...hey, stick around and pardon some fun comments here that you've read previously.

If you or anyone ever loose the keys, here's a way to disarm the Honda OEM alarm.

Open this PDF and look at the installation notes on the security system.

There are a few ways to disarm it.

1. Disconnect the harness to your alarm control module
2. Switch the arm to manual mode instead of auto
3. Disarm it using the manual override button. You have to locate it somewhere in your CR-V.

To disarm it, go into your V, put the key in turn it to the ACC position while holding down on the disarm button. It'll shut off the alarm if it is blasting and your LED light will come on and stay on. You can leave it off and exit and re-enter your V without the alarm going off.

To arm it again, do the same thing and the LED light goes off.

Hope this helps.

Lastly, one can buy a new set of keyless entries key fob online anytime. Once you have it, program it to recognize the code emitted by your CR-V and you're good to go again. These come in a set of 2 remote key fobs.

Hope this helps!

The EX and SE models came with the key fobs, although all models had the receiver installed in the driver's door. For the LX models all you needed was the key fobs and to program them.

There was no alarm or imobilizer in the 1st Gens. If you pushed the door lock button twice it would beep the horn, and there was a panic button on the key fob that would start the horn honking (like an alarm).

couldnt u just pop the fuse out ?

look in the fuse compartment..

about hotwiring a civic (or a crv) can be done within 30 seconds, but is it worth it? its a civic (crv) for crying out loud, rather spend the 30 seconds hotwiring a ferrari or porche :)

best protection against your car being stolen is, remove the IGN fuse, then no one can start your car ;) key or no key :D
