Default 2003 Accord Key Remote

One of the key remotes stopped working on my 03 Accord. Has anyone had
experience repairing these? Not sure if it has an internal battery or
just needs to be reprogrammed. Thanks.

Your owner's manual will tell you if the battery is user-servicable.

WHAT? You mean these cars come with manuals? What will they think of next!?

If the '04 EX uses the same key as breeze's '03, there is a cross-head screw
on the back, and a small slot in which to insert a screwdriver to pop open
the back. To be sure, I got out my manual and that is the, uh, case. Look in
the manual's index for "Remote Transmitter," not "key!" Gosh, only a moron
would look in the index for "key" when he/she wants to replace its
battery.... Reminds me of a catalog that had a coat rack indexed not as
"coat rack," but as "costumer."

AH! The manual! Should have seen that one coming. Anyone had to
reprogram one of these buggers?

No, never. I just buy a new car when that happens to avoid this
problem... only kidding.

The battery number is CR1616. Each transmitter uses

one battery.



How to program the remotes:

Entering the programming mode cancels all learned

transmitter codes, so none of the previously

programmed transmitters will work. You must

reprogram all of the transmitters once you are in the

programming mode.

.. You must complete steps 1-6 within 4 seconds of

the previous step to keep the system from exiting the

programming mode.

1. Turn the ignition switch to ON (II).

2. Press the "Lock" or "Unlock" button on one of the

transmitters. (An unprogrammed transmitter can be

used for this step.)

3. Turn the ignition switch to LOCK (0).

4. Repeat steps 1, 2, and 3 two more times using the

same transmitter used in step 2.

5. Turn the ignition switch to ON (II).

6. Press the "Lock" or "Unlock" button on the same

transmitter. Make sure the power door locks cycle

to confirm that the system is in programming mode.

7. Within 10 seconds, press the "Lock" or "Unlock"

button on each transmitter. Make sure the power

door locks cycle after you press each transmitter

button to confirm that the system accepted the

transmitter's code.

8. Turn the ignition switch to LOCK (0) to exit the

programming mode.

But just replacing the battery doesn't require reprogramming, does it? (The
manual doesn't say anything about needing to.)

It would be very unusual if it did. Certainly unlike every other car we
have ever owned.

That's why I brought it up. I don't think people should be pressed into
abject fear every time they need to replace the battery in the remote.

;-)
