Introduction
Congratulations! Your selection of an Acura Remote
Engine Starter System was a wise investment. This
system is the result of extensive research and
development, and will provide you with many years of
reliable performance, protection, and convenience.
The remote engine starter system consists of a
transmitter that allows you to start and stop the engine
from outside the vehicle.
Some communities may have restrictions on the use of
remote engine starters. Before using your remote engine
starter system, please check all local laws and
regulations.
To take full advantage of your Acura Remote Engine
Starter System, please read this manual thoroughly.
Any changes or modifications not expressly approved by
the party responsible for compliance could void the
user’s authority to operate the equipment.

Safety Guidelines
NOTICE
• Carbon monoxide gas is toxic and can rapidly
accumulate in closed or even
partly enclosed areas.
Breathing it can cause
unconsciousness and even
kill you.
Never use the remote engine

starter with the vehicle
parked in a garage or other areas with limited
ventilation.
© 2012 American Honda Motor Co., Inc. - All Rights Reserved.
• Do not start the engine with
the remote engine starter
before removing a body cover.
The engine and exhaust heat
can cause a fire.
6410040B
• Do not start the engine with
this remote engine starter
near flammable material such
as dead grass, paper, oil,
grease, wood, etc.
The heat from the exhaust
pipe can ignite the flammable
material.

Safety Guidelines
Battery Power
In Case of Loss
Use the transmitter only when necessary.
Every time a button is pressed, the remote
engine starter is consuming battery power.
If the battery is low on power, the
transmitting range of the remote engine
starter will be affected. Check the battery
periodically, and replace it when necessary.
For battery replacement refer to page 32.
If one of your transmitters is ever lost, contact your local Acura
dealer for a replacement. Your system will be reprogrammed to
prevent the lost transmitter from operating your system. If your
system needs reprogramming due to a lost transmitter, you must
bring in any additional remotes for reprogramming at this time.

Safety Guidelines
Handling Transmitter
Liquids
The transmitter is a sophisticated
electronic device.
To maintain optimum system
performance, avoid mishandling
the remote engine starter (e.g.,
dropping, throwing).
Never submerge the transmitter in
water.
Though this transmitter is water
resistant, do not operate or store it
in a place where it can be
splashed with water. It can cause
the transmitter to malfunction.
B127020H
B127030H
Outside Cleaning
Use a soft cloth to clean the transmitter.
Do not use kerosene, thinner, or any other type of solvent.
Temperature
Avoid exposing the transmitter to
extreme hot or cold weather
conditions.
Children
Store the transmitter out of reach
of children.

not start if the ambient temperature is too cold, the
vehicle battery is drained, or there are other
problems with the vehicles starting system.
•
On vehicles equipped with automatic climate control,
the remote engine starter can operate the air
conditioner (defroster) and heating wire (rear
defogger/heated door mirror*1) automatically
provided when the ambient temperature is low. When
the ambient temperature is warm, it can
automatically turn the air conditioner on in the AUTO
mode.
Refer to the section of “Automatic Defrost Function”
for further information (page 27).

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 reduced
range reception.
Please see the following
400 ft (120 m)
conditions for more details.
6410120B
Depending on where you park,
you may experience reduced
range reception. Interference
can be cause by any of these
conditions:
1. Proximity to buildings and
automobiles.
6410130B
• Large trucks parked nearby
• Concrete walls
• Underground parking lot
• Steel walls
2. Proximity to high power transmitters (television, radio,
cellular, HAM radio, etc.).
3. When your transmitter is carried together with such
communication devices as a cellular phone, a walkietalkie, or a notebook computer.
4. When the transmitter is in contact with or covered by
a metallic object.
© 2012 American Honda Motor Co., Inc. - All Rights Reserved.
5. When the vehicle contains aftermarket window tint
6. When another remote engine starter is used nearby.
7. When the battery becomes weak, the remote control
range becomes short.
8. In some cases the remote transmission range can be
longer than the reception range. Therefore the engine
can be started/stopped, and the remote status may
not be displayed.
• Vehicle construction and the surrounding
environment cause reflected waves that may
interfere with the low power RF signal transmitted
by the remote control. This interference may
result in “dead spots” around the vehicle; places
where remote control signals will not be accepted
by the main unit.
• The transmission and the reception ranges of the
unlock/trunk release signal is setting to be shorter
than the others.
• When the RF signal from the transmitter does not
carry to the receiver, the transmitter emits three
RECEPTION FAILURE
short buzzer sounds and
INDICATOR
reception failure indicator is
shown on the display.
B127540H

Transmission and the Reception Ranges of the Electric Wave
•
The transmission and the reception ranges of the
electric wave change depending on the direction of
the transmitter. Generally, to send the electric wave
further, operate a
transmitter at the
height of the
shoulder horizontally.
B426080H
•
If the sensitivity of the electric wave is low when the
transmitter is operated from the shielded place,
particularly in a building, the electric wave may be
sent to the vehicle by moving to the place (near the
window) where the
vehicle can be
seen.
