Had the Security System installed a few weeks ago and finally got around to playing with it. Trouble is that the instructions say virtually the same thing to change from Manuel (default) to Auto, but also the same instructions to get into Valet Mode. I got into Valet Mode, but now can't get it back to Auto. Anyone have any idea how this thing works? The security system manuel doesn't seem to have the answer or is ambiguous. Anyone figured it out yet? My dealer sent me to Honda Customer Service and they didn't know either.

I don't have my manual right in front of me, but if I remember correctly....

Manual to Auto - Insert/extract the key three times. The system beeps.

Auto to Manual - Open a door to get the exit delay going, then do the key thing 3 times. The systen beeps twice

Into Valet mode - Auto only. Disarm the alarm (unlock) then do the key thing 3 times. LED Flashes, no beep.

Out of Valet mode- do the key thing three times. LED Flashes twice.

When I first installed the Security System, I had to try all the different modes. The difference between them is a bit subtle. Timing, as they say is everything. You have to be quick, and extract the key completely each time.

Good luck!
