...that basically when key is in ON (II) position the lock will NOT responde to the remote ?

Locked myself out. :banghead:
I got out of office, started the car, then realizing I forgot something & wanted to go back in.
I thought I might as well let car warm up a bit.
So with car idling, I took the remote with me, lock the doors from the pass. side.

When I came back out I was :shock: to find out lock not responding to remote.
Luckily sister lives nearby and I keep valet key at hers house.
:bill:

I believe it still responds to the trunk release.

You could have gotten back into the car that way, I think.

Good to know. Did you conduct a second test to confirm your findings?

All Hondas are this way - supposedly a safety issue, but I don't know how it could be unsafe to remotely unlock your door while driving. You can reach your hand over to do the same thing.

A tip is to keep a valet key handy at work or home for when you want to start your car and leave it.

Honda has the safeguard of not allowing you to lock your car while the key is in the ignition, but you obviously found the work-around of pulling the door handle while locking.

right...this got me thinking...
If Honda don't want you to lock with the key at ON position as a means to prevent lock-out...
Why the heck the engineers/designers did not think of DISABLING the door lock tabs when the door is OPEN ? Thus preventing me from doing the "work-round" - which just defeated the designers purpose of lock-out prevention.
...maybe this adds complexity = production cost :donno:

The rear seats would not be able to fold down from the trunk as they 2 use a key to lower them.

Nice information to know

not true...there are two yellow straps, one on each side, where you can pull to fold down your rear seats.

not if you want to fold down your rear seats from the trunk. From the inside, you'll need your key. From the trunk, just pull one of the yellow straps and it'll unlatch whichever sides seat and push.
