    I was having problems with my OEM alarm on my 99 Acura 3.5RL. It would go off randomly for no apparent reason, without any apparent trigger or cause. After much googleing and many forum searches on many different sites, i came to the conclusion that my hood latch sensor had gone faulty and decided to "jump" the 2 pin connector.

    Feeling that i needed better car security, i decided to have my python 871xp installed with the 555d bypass module. unfortunately the car would not remotestart although the other functions worked perfectly fine.Under the advice of my installer, i plugged the hood latch sensor back in. This however did not solve any problems i had with the 555d, so i purchased the TBXKEY and had that installed with great success.

    My only problem now is that when i try to remotestart the car, the OEM alarm will go off occasionally, mostly when the car has been sitting for a few hours (4 or more) or when the weather is cold. I have tried to jump the hood latch sensor again but doing so only causes a zone fault detection by the Python 871xp, therefore disabling me from remotestarting the car.

    Any and All input is appreciated!

    I am not familiar with the Python alarm, but I will assume it has an output that can disarm the factory alarm before it remote starts your car.

    The factory disarm wire should be located in the passenger kick panel. It should be a Green/White. Here is the bad news, if your factory alarm rearms when the doors lock (most remote starts lock the doors before the car starts), then you need to disable the factory alarm and rely solely on the Python.

    like ranger said please disconnect the factory alarm there is no sense having a alarm fighting another and you having problems.as for the hood switch i would just put in your own.leaving problems alone and make sure that all of your grounds are good and tight,and clean.
