Default 99 Acura 3.5RL 871xp RM OEM Alarm Problem

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!

Default alarm

The best way to fix this problem is by disarming the alarm every time you remote start the vehicle the wire that you need to find from the acura alarm is
Factory DisarmGreen/Red (-) Green/White to Arm Module Passenger's Kick Panel

you need to connect it to the python alarm wire light green/black this is the factory disarm

if you remote start the vehicle with the python alarm on use the blue wire second ignition ground wire with a small diode

good luck
