2017 honda ridgeline alarm system

Asked by GuruSJTVT Jun 24, 2019 at 09:11 AM about the Honda Ridgeline

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My alarm system just recently started going off on it's own. We had the alarm system turned off because  the dealer said it was a defective hood latch - we replaced it, and hooked up the alarm system and it still happens.  The headlights go off periodically if the alarm system is not connected.  Do you have any advice how to correct this problem so we can reconnect the alarm system

It is most likely your hood sensor. In humid or rainy weather it can cause this problem it is dirty or malfunctioning. You can disconnect it on the engine side of the radiator support until you can have it serviced or replace it yourself. If you need pics I can send them of the location of said sensor.

It is located under the plastic cover on the radiator support. I have approximately marked where the clips are located. Just start at one side and gently pull up on the cover working your way across the support. Some of the clips may come out of the cover but I included a pic of the tool to pull them and snap them back into the cover. I also show where it is located and a puc of it unplugged. To disconnect this plug just push down on the release and pull it apart. With this disconnected the car will still lock with you key fob but the alarm will not engage.

If the plugs should come off of the cover instead of out the clips use a tool like this to remove them and reinstall on cover. Also before replacing cover make sure that you put the latch release though the hole in the cover or it will not snap into place
