I've never hit the panic on my keyless, but I do know for a fact that it works. While signing off on all the paperwork to buy the E, the detail shop parked it right outside the dealers door. Our salesmans desk over looked the parking lot, and thus the new E. A lady and her teenage daughter started looking at the car, and the salesman grabbed the remote and held down the panic button. The lady and her daughter found another car to look at!wmas1960 said:There is a third feature on the EX models or any Element with the Keyless Entry installed. EX has Keyless standard. That is Panic. The red bar on the transmitter. I have never hit it but I know people who have similar entry transmitters. My understanding is that if you hit that button, say if being attacked in a parking lot, the horn will honk repeatedly to draw attention to you and/or your car. I am not sure if lights flash in this instance but they might.

1) The dealer gave me the sticker to put on rather than them doing it. I can't pick a good location for it - my windows already have two other Honda stickers on them. It seemed like it would be cluttered if I added the security one!
If your dealer installed yours, where did they put them? Did it make your window look cluttered or obscure vision?
2) I have to admit that I am just a tad confused over the system - no extra bells or whistles on the keychain, still honks twice like it did prior to having it installed. Is the only difference the LED on my steering column?
The system owners manual didn't make much sense to me when I read it. It is VERY possible I just need to re-read it again when I am more focused... I suppose what I am asking is: should I be noticing anything else being different post installation?
Really, I am not normally this dense.
