I have lost my Honda in a parking garage and been able to find it by beeping the horn with the panic button on my remote from a different floor. My 1996 Crewcab does not respond to the remotes -- which have new batteries -- unless I am less than 20 ft away and aim it just right. Are these remotes just yesterday's technology or is something wrong?

Make sure the RKE module's antenna is plugged in & not damaged or blocked by aftermarket accessories. It's normally taped inside the wiring harness. You might get slightly more range by pulling it out, and straightening it so it runs up toward the w/s.

It's directly above the accelerator pedal.
