I'm pretty sure the imobilizer chip has to do with the ignition components of the car, not the security system, however if you're going to install a remote start its going to have to bypass the imbolizer chip somehow, without the chip in your key the engine wont start at all trust me I tried while tinkering with my switchblade key.

Most people go with Viper 5902 and DBALL as the immobilizer bypass/doorlock interface.

The 8G Accord has two separate systems; a security system and an anti-theft system. In layman's terms, the security system makes noise if the perimeter is breached and is intended to prevent theft of the car's contents. On the other hand, the anti-theft system is a defence against the car being started and stolen. In other words the security system is the bark and the anti-theft system is the bite. One can be broken and the other will still do it's job.

As for adding additional security, I recommend adding a stealthy, well-installed fuel kill switch.

Lastly, I recommend that you ignore those who will inevitably come along as say "if they'll want it, they'll take it". I'm sure those people still lock their doors and take their keys when leaving their vehicle, even though they claim the situation is hopeless.


You need to put up a good fight and not make it easier.

U need something with a shock sensor and passive arming. Prestige, Dei/Viper or many others . If you worry about someone Stealing the car I would not bother with any aftermarket system it's near impossible to start the vehicle without the actual key.

Keep in mind that most aftermarket remote starters make it easier for someone to start your car without the key.

If you want to test the Antitheft system on accords, lock the car with front windows open.
After locking it, MAnually unlock with your finger from the inside while standing outside the car....this is the only time the alarm will work
Try it.

Which spells out, a bad install.

75-80% of the system is in the install...no matter how good the product/tech is... if the installer cuts corners and/or does a hack job, I agree..one will succeed in making it an easier day for potential thieves

As others have stated...look for a reputable installer that has the credentials/feedback behind them. DEI, AutoPage, Clifford (which is the same as DEI now..just different model #'s) are good systems, but look for certified installers (even then, that can be deceiving, as Best Buy is authorized/certified...NO way would my car ever see one of those places).

Upper end DEI and AutoPage units have GPS tracking modules and iphone/android app support. This will cut some peoples insurance rate if you notify your carrier that you have such support--it equates to having LoJack but with more options at the user's end.
