Key takeover not sending update to RF642W keyfob

0 votes
2009 Honda Pilot, Evo One, RF642W. All functions good, remote range good, but for some reason, key takeover is not updating the key fob. I've tested on both remotes. The green led blinks, indicating the remote start is active even after unlocking, inserting key, and driving away. The green led on the fob continues to blink while driving. All other functions are working, i.e., doors lock on remote takeover and brake pedal. A bit annoying to have the led blink and also concerned that this will drain the remote battery prematurely. The only way I can get the led to turn off is to press [-] twice to request status. In that scenario, the fob beeps twice indicating 'disarmed', and then the led turns off. I have to do this procedure every time I use remote start.

LED on remote will stop flashing by itself you don't have to update status everytime. Don't worry, this will not drain the battery, having the remote constantly searching for stop signal is much worst on battery then LED flashing.
