    Lack of alarm beep when locking door by remote

    Hi guys, did a search on this problem but it doesn't seem that an answer was posted. For some reason when locking the van with the remote, the tail lights don't flash and doesn't beep the horn on the second push of the button. On visual inspection, the locks engage though....

    Any imput from you guys out there?

    not sure what's wrong but i know that if the hood isn't latched the horn will not beep.
    One thing i noticed is that recently when my horn beeps it sounds muffled.

    Year? LX, EX or Touring?

    If it is a Touring, the Keyless Lock Acknowledement is probably disabled. See manual for more info.

    It's a 2008 Touring model. I checked the MID setting and it's set to acknowledge the lock function with a beep. Still doesn't work... weird.

    Anyone else know what the problem is and if it's something that I need to get a shop to look at or fix it myself?

    make sure that ALL five doors are completely closed.

    Check the dash for an open door indication.

    Yes... checked that all five doors were closed... opened and slammed down the front hood and still the same problem. The doors lock but there's no confirmation, therefore not sure if the alarm is activated or not.

    Why not just take it to the dealer. It is still under warrenty isn't it. Many problems can cause it. The hood switch is a common one. Any door not closing properly could cause it. Some setup in the user manual could cause it. A door not locking could cause it. No simple answer for the problem so check with your dealer.

    I would take it to the dealer but it's not possible. I bought the van in the States and imported to Canada. Therefore the warranty is void here. Which is why I'm wondering if it's an easy fix.

    Then the first thing I would do is order the service manuals and if you do not have the ability to trace through the wiring diagrams find a good mechanic who can. If it is not a programing problem Then it can be difficult to find. Look at it as a learning experience. As I said before check that all the doors are locking and the hood switch is working.

    I have an '08 EXL-RES with the exact same problem. However, if I click the lock button on the remote several times, the horn will sound.
    At my first service I'll mention it to the service writer and post my findings.

    This happened to me recently, also. I finally determined that my driver's side slider was not always locking. I took the van to the dealer thinking it was either the door lock or the switches in the gas door (I have read that as issue with the gas door can cause issues with the sliding door. Anyway, it wound up being the power door lock. The cost - $277 if I didn't have the Hondacare warranty. My cost = $0. NOTE: Once I figured this out, if I manually locked the door, the horn would once again chirp.
