Question 2013 Accord Remote Starter

I just purchased a 2013 Accord EXL-V6 & LOVE the car! However, I'm getting conflicting information about the Honda Remote Start option which I had installed. It seems to require that I carry BOTH the remote start fob as well as Driver #1 or #2 fob.

BUT the Honda remote start installation guide says:
"NOTE: The remote is factory set for driver 1 remote
control. To program the driver 2 remote, follow the
“REMOTE CONTROL ENGINE STARTER
TRANSMITTER REGISTRATION” instructions on
ISIS."

It just doesn't make sense that you'd have to carry both fobs ... one for outside the car & the other for inside?

Any help would be MOST appreciated.

Yes, you have to carry 2 remotes; the remote starter and the key fob, if you want to use the remote starter and be able to drive off.

The following verbiage from the installation instructions pertains to Accords with Keyless access systems:

With Keyless Memory Settings
NOTE: The remote is factory set for driver 1 remote
control. To program the driver 2 remote, follow the
“REMOTE CONTROL ENGINE STARTER
TRANSMITTER REGISTRATION” instructions on
ISIS.

Thanks for the quick reply, redbull-1.

I must say that it seems like a half-finished product design...

The fobs aren't small & two are pretty clunky to carry around. You can't leave the standard key in the car or the remote won't function properly.

It doesn't make technical/design sense. The remote starter has all other functions that the standard "wave' key has and it's linked to the car ID to start it. Why can't it also allow the start button to work?

Seems as though this really needs to be revisited by Honda engineers.

I bought the remote kit too, and was shocked to see the two large boat anchors you need to carry with you. Remote start on this car should be standard equipment, and built into the key fob. I regret getting it, and would have went aftermarket if I had done more research. I just put my faith in Honda because usually they make stuff so nice and neat. I was also never even offered the chance to buy two remotes, so I was surprised when they handed me one remote.

I just had the remote start installed today in a new 2013 EXVL, I wish I would have found this site before buying it. I'll be calling dealer tomorrow to demand a refund. Very poor design and integration by Honda.

I have it as well and was shocked to see that I needed to carry both remotes. I thought they could just program the remote one to act as both

Now with this remote start system it will adjust the temp to 72 and do everything it is suppose to do as per the specs above?

It works per specs ONLY FROM OUTSIDE THE CAR.
Therefore you MUST carry two fobs if you want to use remote start at work, while shopping, etc.
For me, the fobs are simply too large to carry both, so I only use the remote at home.

As I said earlier, this is a bad, ill-thought design and should be corrected.
