    New to this forum. I have a 1998 Honda Accord Lx 4 cylinder automatic. Replaced battery now every time I put the key in and start the car the alarm goes off. The lights flash and the horn blares. I ended up pulling the horn fuse. My car doesn't have a key fob. I'm actually not sure if it came with them or not. I am assuming not but I do have what looks like a radio type antenna above my rear view mirror 20220827_163607.jpg

    Purchased the car for my son for when he starts driving. The previous owner never gave us any key fobs.

    Yes, they came with remote controls. I never used mine and didn't have any problems in 15 years.

    You need to contact the person you purchased the car from and see if they may have installed a remote start or aftermarket alarm system. That antenna may be a receiver for the remote start/alarm system.
