What causes the alarm on a 2014 Honda Accord LX to sound continuously (no on/off pattern)?

Asked by Oct 18, 2015 at 11:31 PM about the 2014 Honda Accord

Question type: General

Just test drove a 2014 Honda Accord LX.  As we were going over the vehicle afterward (opening hood, trunk, and doors), an alarm went off.  The horn blared solidly for minutes.  We tried lots of things to get it to stop.  We turned the car on and off twice, pulled the hood release, clicked the open lock button on fob, etc.  After one salesman couldn't get it to stop, we called another salesman out.  He sat in the driver's seat and pulled the hood release again causing it to stop.  WHAT ON EARTH CAUSED THIS?!  No one at the dealership could explain it and all mechanics were gone for the day (Saturday).  We like the car and want to buy it but are concerned about this security system.

Usually just locking then unlocking the doors will cancel the alarm if it is operating correctly, other things could be the detailing department could have got things a little too wet during the clean up, I recommend taking it to a shop that does a used car inspection, voice your concern over the alarm, so they might look it over during the check over, believe it is money well spent, and if they do find something wrong and you still want the car you have a little bargaining to do.
