I have an old honda accord that does not start without pressing a button from a makeshift fob. This red light blinks and the emergency lights until i press the fobbutton and then it starts.

I just lost the button, and I can't start the car. Any way to disable it and start the car with just the key?

Thank you

  • That in-built security works on so many levels - get a new fob. – Solar Mike Jun 3 '18 at 6:04
  • so I can't start it without getting a new fob? can I disable the security and start the car ? – Ayrad Jun 3 '18 at 6:10
  • Well I have never come across one - when you get a new fob : buy two.... – Solar Mike Jun 3 '18 at 6:13

    @SolarMike the description suggests that it's an aftermarket immobilizer, in which case disabling it should be quite feasible – Nick C Jun 3 '18 at 17:53

So I found a manual inside the car that has some information on how to disable it. Apparently the security system is from a company or brand called VPS.

The solution was to quickly turn the key in the ignition from ACC to Ignition 10 times in a row. The car was then started.

Hopefully this will help someone else.

  • This sounds like an aftermarket security system and exact details (make, model of the alarm etc) would help the question and the answer ... – Solar Mike Jun 3 '18 at 9:21
