    This is for a 1994 Concerto, RHD, UK. The handset has finally given
    up(buttons damaged) and I don't have a spare. I am able to operate the
    alarm by shorting out the contacts. Is there a manual override or
    another way of disabling the alarm and, more importantly, the
    immobiliser? The car is old, so it is not worth the cost of a new
    handset. My e-mail is

    What is this? We've had a rash of multi-posting newbies. Is there a full
    moon or something?

    Yes, thanks for the answer, I will try it out. Perhaps you can
    explain something to me. In what way is it a problem to post in the 2
    Honda groups?

    Not a problem to do it, but you should take care to do it right.

    Had you cross-posted it to relevant groups, any responses would have also
    cross-posted (unless the author specifically turned off the other
    groups), therefore showing the answer to all the groups...

    To borrow a page from the manual of pedantry, 2 hardly qualifies as
    OK, sounds reasonable. But the last time I posted in Usenet, I did
    just that and somebody ticked me off for X-posting, again in just 2
    groups. You can't win!

    Thy guy who flamed you was an ignoramus. It is perfectly acceptable to
    crosspost to two or three groups that are relevant to your post.
