Read the rules:

Myself, and the other mods have been very nice and lenient with the rules. We have been deleting threads, and giving out warnings. Some members didn't get the clue and re-posted over and over... Now ANY member buying or selling in this section will be banned... No IF's AND's or BUT's.

Beginner Forum Rules - EVERYBODY read! (old and new members alike!)

Beginners start here. Once you have 30 worthwhile posts (off topic doesn't count) you may post outside of the Beginner forums. Any "whoring" (posting simply to raise your post count) will return your count to 0, or result in a ban.

These are the rules. Read them. Live by them.

1) Absolutely NO flaming! "Flaming" is an outright attack on a member. ALL questions are encouraged to be asked here, no matter how basic. Members with over 30 posts will be subject to a ONE WEEK ban if caught flaming in this forum (and yes, moderators can read deleted posts). Members with under 30 posts will be subject to a ONE DAY ban.

2) Use appropriate language. Racial or sexual slurs will not be tolerated. A ban will be issued at the discretion of the staff.

3) No items may be sold in the Beginner forums. Any "for sale" threads will be deleted.

4) Temporarily banned members will be PERMANTLY banned if they are found posting on another account.

The rules can and will be added to. Any updates will be marked in the title.

The rules for the overall forum can be found here:
Read them. You will be expected to follow them.

Alternatives to the factory Honda keyless entry system on EX's?

    The keyless entry remote for the wagon is literally built into the main key - there's no fob. The battery that powered it back when is a permanent rechargible that's molded into the key head, with a pair of electrical contact raiils that extend down into the key slot - it's supposed to rechange whenever the car's in operation. Checked with the local dealer about replacement keys a couple of weeks ago - one of the long time parts guys said he remembers the system, but Honda hasn't had that key available for years.

    Your fob is still in good shape? I have one for my wagon as well, but the buttons are broken. I haven't bothered to see if I could safely open the fob up to replace a battery. There are all sorts of aftermarket keyless entry and alarm systems out there, but probably not to make this factory fob work.

    Are you 100% sure that key fob is actually sealed? I've never dealt with one (as much as I wish I had one), but I would find it EXTREMELY unlikely Honda would make a non-servicable key fob, even in the 90s. miniature battery tech still sucked, you'd have to buy a new fob every 6 months.

    Anyone had experience adapting an aftermarket alarm / keyless entry system? The factory remote access key/sender came with my new-to-me EX wagon, but the battery in it is long dead, the sender end of the key is sealed, and Honda no longer has the keys. All the power locks work fine - I'm just looking for a way to activate them without putting the key in the lock. If the system came with an alarm, so much the better......
