Just got the 2011 EX. When I use the Honda remote to lock the door, van light will not blink, no horn, no security light blink on the console. When I use the remote to unlock the door, light will blink to indicate unlock. Does that mean my EX has no alarm system come with it? Confused. Any comment? :huh:

According to the Honda site, the security system is standard on the EX as well.
Have you tried pressing the lock button twice?

They might have forgotten to put in the fuse to the security system in the PDI
perhaps.

I have a Canadian EX RES. When I press the lock button once, the parking lights flash once. When I press it twice in rapid succession the horn sounds. When I unlock, the lights flash. I assume the US version works the same, but best to check with your dealer.

On my touring model, through the MID, I have the ability to turn off the verification lights and horn when I lock the car. Do you have that ability on the EX?

:huh:

Is that a PDI item if the car comes with it as standard?
I am not sure about the security system but there have been several cases where dealers forgot to put in fuses for the RES, radio, NAV for the prior gens. So, I wouldn't be surprised if they missed one of yours.

i will update after i go to the dealer this weekend. according to the user manuel, no instruction for ex to change the behavior. even i lock using the key, the security lihgt will not blink on the console panel. probably forgot the fuse. or maybe the technician removed everything when they remove the dealer security system before delivery. i will see. :nothappy:

Finally get the dealer fixed this issue. Dealer found failed hood latch not completing the circuit. So replace the latch assembly make the security system work now.

Glad they fixed it, I wonder how things like this pass the PDI even when it is not expressly outlined if most of the Honda line-up does the same thing when locking/unlocking :rolleyes:...

Wait, let me change that, no, I don't wonder :)
