Q: Anti-theft system in 2005 Honda Accord not turning off

Hi there. I have seen a lot of issues with the anti-theft system on this vehicle. I always try a spare key first, as a worn out key will cause this. If the new key does not work, then the problem is in the anti-theft module. This can be tested with a computer scan tool that can communicate with this module. This can also occur if the battery in the vehicle is low so that needs to be checked first. If you would like this issue fixed, consider YourMechanic, as a certified mechanic can come to your office to diagnose your Honda’s anti-theft system.
