Acura CL (2003 year). Instruction — page 6

Your car also comes with two remote
transmitters; see page

for an

explanation of the operation.

The Immobilizer System protects
your car from theft. A properly-
coded master or valet key must be
used in the ignition switch for the
engine to start. If an improperly-
coded key (or other device) is used,
the engine’s fuel system is disabled.

When you turn the ignition switch to
ON (II), the Immobilizer System
indicator should come on for a few
seconds, then go out. If the indicator
starts to blink, it means the system
does not recognize the coding of the
key. Turn the ignition switch to
LOCK (0), remove the key, reinsert
it, and turn the switch to ON (II)
again.

The system may not recognize your
key’s coding if another immobilizer
key or other metal object is near the
ignition switch when you insert the
key. To make sure the system
recognizes the key code:

Do not keep other immobilizer
keys on the same key ring.

Use a plastic or leather key fob,
not metal.

Keep other keys away from your
car’s key and the ignition switch
while trying to start the engine.

If the system repeatedly does not
recognize the coding of your key,
contact your Acura dealer.

Do not attempt to alter this system
or add other devices to it. Electrical
problems could result that may make
your car undriveable.

If you have lost your key and you
cannot start the engine, contact your
Acura dealer.

The ignition switch is on the right
side of the steering column. It has
four positions:
• LOCK (0)
• ACCESSORY (I)
• ON (II)
• START (III)

You can insert or

remove the key only in this position.
To switch from ACCESSORY to
LOCK, you must push the key in
slightly as you turn it. The shift lever
must also be in Park. The anti-theft
lock will lock the steering column
when you remove the key.

If the front wheels are turned, the
anti-theft lock may sometimes make
it difficult to turn the key from
LOCK to ACCESSORY. Firmly turn
the steering wheel to the left or to
the right as you turn the key.

In this position,

you can operate the audio system
and the accessory power sockets.

This is the normal key

position when driving. All features
and accessories on the car are usable.
Several of the lights on the instru-
ment panel come on as a test when
you turn the ignition switch from
ACCESSORY to ON.

Use this position

only to start the engine. The switch
returns to ON (II) when you let go of
the key.

The engine will not start if the
Immobilizer System does not
recognize the key’s coding (see page

).

You will hear a reminder beeper if
you leave the key in the LOCK (0) or
ACCESSORY (I) position and open
the driver’s door. Remove the key to
turn off the beeper.

Each door has a master door lock
switch. Either switch locks and
unlocks both doors. Push the switch
down to lock both doors and up to
unlock them.

Each door has a lock tab at the top of
the door. When you push down the

getting out of the car, push the lock
tab down and close the door. To lock
the driver’s door, remove the key
from the ignition switch and push
the lock tab down or push the master
switch down, then close the door.

Both doors can be locked from the
outside by using the key in either
door.

To unlock only the driver’s door
from the outside, insert the key in
the driver’s door lock, turn the key
and release it. If you turn the key
and hold it, both doors will unlock.
Both doors will unlock when you
unlock the passenger’s door with the

If you forget and leave the key in the
ignition switch, Lockout Prevention
will not allow you to lock the driver’s
door. With the driver’s door open
and the key in the ignition, both
master door lock switches are
disabled. However, if the driver’s
door is not open, the master door
lock switches are not disabled.
Pushing the switch down on the
open passenger’s door will lock both
doors. If you try to lock an open
driver’s door by pushing down the
lock tab, the tabs on both doors pop
up. Pushing down the lock tab on the
passenger’s door only locks that door.

You can lock and unlock your car
with the remote transmitter. When
you push the LOCK button, both
doors lock. The parking lights, side
marker lights, taillights and license
plate light will flash once.

When you push the LOCK button a
second time within 5 seconds after
you have locked the doors, you will
hear a beep to verify that the doors
are locked and the security system

has set.

When you push the UNLOCK button
once, only the driver’s door unlocks.
The passenger’s door unlocks when
you push the button a second time.
The parking lights, side marker
lights, taillights and license plate
light flash twice each time you push
the button.

The ceiling light (if the ceiling light
switch is in the center position) will
come on when you press the
UNLOCK button. If you do not open
either door, the light stays on for
about 10 seconds, then fades out. If
you relock the doors with the remote
transmitter before 10 seconds have
elapsed, the light will go off
immediately.

The remote transmitters will also
activate the Driving Position
Memory System (see page

).

When you open the driver’s door
after unlocking it with the remote
transmitter, you will hear a beep.
The driver’s seat and outside mirrors
move to the positions stored in that
memory location. You will hear two
beeps when the movement is
complete.

If you unlock the doors with the
remote transmitter, but do not open
either door within 30 seconds, the
doors automatically relock and the
security system sets.

You cannot lock the doors with the
remote transmitter if either door is
not fully closed or the key is in the
ignition switch. You cannot unlock
the doors with the key in the ignition
switch.

To open the trunk, push the Trunk
Release button for approximately
one second.

You can open the trunk with the
remote transmitter regardless of the
position of the main switch in the
glove box. The trunk will not open if
the key is in the ignition switch.

The Driving Position Memory
System will not activate if you left
the transmission in Reverse or did
not set the parking brake.

The driving position memory
activated (Memory 1, Memory 2) is
shown on the back of each
transmitter. Make sure you store
your desired driving position in the
memory that is activated by the
transmitter you normally carry.

You can turn off this driving position
memory activation. While standing
near the car, press and hold the
LOCK and UNLOCK buttons at the
same time. The LED in the remote
transmitter will blink twice. Then
release the buttons.

Panic mode will not activate if the
ignition switch is in the ON (II)

undesired operation of the device.

Clean the transmitter case with a
soft cloth. Do not use strong
cleaners or solvents that could harm
the case. Immersing the transmitter
in any liquid will harm the trans-
mitter and cause it to not function
properly.

Avoid severe shock to the trans-
mitter, such as dropping or throwing
it. Also, protect it from extreme hot
or cold temperatures.

If you lose a transmitter, you will
need to have the replacement
programmed to your car’s system by
your Acura dealer. Any other
transmitters you have will also need
to be reprogrammed.

Remove the old battery and note the
polarity. Make sure the polarity of
the new battery is the same (

side

facing up), then insert it in the
transmitter.

Snap the two halves of the
transmitter case back together.
