I have remote start / security systems installed on a 1998 Honda Accord SE
and a 2003 Acura TL-S. The Honda's is a Clarion (self-installed), and the
Acura's is a Viper (second-source dealer installed). Both act the same when
remote starting or opening the trunk: if the system is armed, the factory
alarm goes off. The only way to avoid the problem is to unlock the vehicle
before starting it or opening the trunk.
I've searched through the electrical shop manuals for both vbehicles, and
can't find a way to use the "factory alarm disable" line from the remote
start systems to disable the factory alarm system. Any idea how I can
accomplish this, or where to go to find out? The guys who installed the
Viper system said that Viper told them not to touch the factory system, lest
dire results ensue. But I know that 'most anything is possible...
