Default Does the remote keyless starter disarm the anti-theft system on a 2003 Honda Accord?

Once in a while, when I get in my Honda, the anti-theft will arm itself and if I try to jiggle the steering wheel (unlocking the ignition) and start the car with the key, the alarm will go off. The last time this happened, I tried taking the key out and using the remote to get the car to shut up. The remote starter seemed to do the trick. So, will I not have to put up with the alarm if I just stick to using the remote keyless starter?

The factory security system is deactivated in either of two ways. If you lock the car, the system arms. You can disarm the system by either using the remote keyless entry or by unlocking the dirver's door with the key.

There are aftermarket alarms that dealers sold and installed on cars. most of them are vibration sensors. They too should be canceled when either the door is unlocked or the remote is used to unlock the doors but often times these system have a separate remote control. If the remote you are using says "Honda" on it, then you have the factory alarm. If it says anything else, its a non-Honda alarm.

hope that helps
