    Yes you can take the alarm out of the system. I would want to try myself but it should be a doddle for an auto-electrician.

    The flashing red light is the alarm armed light.

    With the red led lit the car won't turn over so must be to do with immobiliser. So once I put key in, press right button on fob, light goes out and I can start it.

    Ah fair dues. Maybe it's been fettled with in the past? Immobiliser is on the key, sounds like there is another system inline with the alarm.

    It does bud. But it's the standard honda remote that switches it off...

    Hi - we have just bought an 04 plate facelift ep3 CTR - it only has one key and one (worn) remote fob but works fine. However, we are trying to get a second key & fob (but want to avoid going to Honda for the supply of these) & then go to Honda solely for the programming side of things if need be - I have done a little research and it seems that if I buy an uncut Honda key (from ebay or similar), get it cut to match the original key and get a second hand fob (with the transmitter stuff in), Honda will programme it for far less than if I go to them for the whole lot. However, I have a few questions though as I don't fully understand!1. Do the part numbers need to match on the original and the second hand fob/transmitter? If so, how do I find the part number as my original key/fob (pictured below) does not show any markings/number externally on the key/case2. Do the keys have something built into them (chip or transponder??) or are they just plain keys? I know the fob has internal stuff in but not sure about the keys?3. The only number I can find is a key number printed on the original new car sales invoice - is that anything to do with it?4. Other keys I have seen have numbers such as G8D-452H-A 433.9MHZ , but how do i find similar details for mine?5. Is there anyone other than Honda that can programme the key/fob if I source them ?

    I would appreciate any assistance! Unfortunately, I also have the sticker/label missing on the reverse of the fob, so don't know part number etc

    Just an update, managed to find used remote fob on ebay - took a chance with it as I had not checked the part number on the inner circuit board! Part number was slightly different (as I subsequently checked both the original remote fob and the ebay one) but after it reprogramming it, they both worked - right result - now just need to get a transponder key cut - and if nobody else can code the key to the vehicle I will let Honda do that as I understand that part of it is far cheaper than the whole key/fob job!

    If anyone knows where I can buy a transponder key - cut to match mine or blank - (and preferably someone who can code the key to the vehicle) please let me know
