Safety GuidelinesNOTICE Carbon monoxide gas is toxic and can rapidlyaccumulate in closed or evenpartly enclosed areas.Breathing it can causeunconsciousness and evenkill you.Never use the remote engine6410020Bstarter with the vehicleparked in a garage or other areas with limitedventilation. 2012 American Honda Motor Co., Inc. - All Rights Reserved. Do not start the engine withthe remote engine starterbefore removing a body cover.The engine and exhaust heatcan cause a fire.6410040B Do not start the engine withthis remote engine starternear flammable material suchas dead grass, paper, oil,grease, wood, etc.The heat from the exhaustpipe can ignite the flammablematerial.6410050B5
Safety GuidelinesBattery PowerIn Case of LossUse the transmitter only when necessary.Every time a button is pressed, the remoteengine starter is consuming battery power.If the battery is low on power, thetransmitting range of the remote enginestarter will be affected. Check the batteryperiodically, and replace it when necessary.For battery replacement refer to page 32.If one of your transmitters is ever lost, contact your local Hondadealer for a replacement. Your system will be reprogrammed toprevent the lost transmitter from operating your system. If yoursystem needs reprogramming due to a lost transmitter, you mustbring in any additional remotes for reprogramming at this time.B127010H6 2012 American Honda Motor Co., Inc. - All Rights Reserved.
Safety GuidelinesHandling TransmitterLiquidsThe transmitter is a sophisticatedelectronic device.To maintain optimum systemperformance, avoid mishandlingthe remote engine starter (e.g.,dropping, throwing).Never submerge the transmitter inwater.Though this transmitter is waterresistant, do not operate or store itin a place where it can besplashed with water. It can causethe transmitter to malfunction.B127020HB127030HOutside CleaningUse a soft cloth to clean the transmitter.Do not use kerosene, thinner, or any other type of solvent.TemperatureAvoid exposing the transmitter toextreme hot or cold weatherconditions.ChildrenStore the transmitter out of reachof children.6410070B6410080B 2012 American Honda Motor Co., Inc. - All Rights Reserved.7

The engine maynot start if the ambient temperature is too cold, thevehicle battery is drained, or there are otherproblems with the vehicles starting system. On vehicles equipped with automatic climate control,the remote engine starter can operate the airconditioner (defroster) and heating wire (reardefogger/heated door mirror*1) automaticallyprovided when the ambient temperature is low. Whenthe ambient temperature is warm, it canautomatically turn the air conditioner on in the AUTOmode.Refer to the section of “Automatic Defrost Function”for further information (page 27).*1 Only on vehicle equipped.6410090B8 2012 American Honda Motor Co., Inc. - All Rights Reserved.
Transmission and the Reception Ranges of the Electric Wave The transmitter range is 400 ft (120 m)(approximately 600 - 1,500 ft (180 450 m) in open area).Depending on where you are,you may experience reducedrange reception.Please see the following400 ft (120 m)conditions for more details.6410120BDepending on where you park,you may experience reducedrange reception. Interferencecan be cause by any of theseconditions:1. Proximity to buildings andautomobiles.6410130B Large trucks parked nearby Concrete walls Underground parking lot Steel walls2. Proximity to high power transmitters (television, radio,cellular, HAM radio, etc.).3. When your transmitter is carried together with suchcommunication devices as a cellular phone, a walkietalkie, or a notebook computer.4. When the transmitter is in contact with or covered bya metallic object. 2012 American Honda Motor Co., Inc. - All Rights Reserved.5. When the vehicle contains aftermarket window tint6. When another remote engine starter is used nearby.7. When the battery becomes weak, the remote controlrange becomes short.8. In some cases the remote transmission range can belonger than the reception range. Therefore the enginecan be started/stopped, and the remote status maynot be displayed. Vehicle construction and the surroundingenvironment cause reflected waves that mayinterfere with the low power RF signal transmittedby the remote control. This interference mayresult in “dead spots” around the vehicle; placeswhere remote control signals will not be acceptedby the main unit. The transmission and the reception ranges of theunlock/trunk release signal is setting to be shorterthan the others. When the RF signal from the transmitter does notcarry to the receiver, the transmitter emits threeRECEPTION FAILUREshort buzzer sounds andINDICATORreception failure indicator isshown on the display.B127540H9
Transmission and the Reception Ranges of the Electric Wave The transmission and the reception ranges of theelectric wave change depending on the direction ofthe transmitter. Generally, to send the electric wavefurther, operate atransmitter at theheight of theshoulder horizontally.B426080H If the sensitivity of the electric wave is low when thetransmitter is operated from the shielded place,particularly in a building, the electric wave may besent to the vehicle by moving to the place (near thewindow) where thevehicle can beseen.7731060S10 2012 American Honda Motor Co., Inc. - All Rights Reserved.
