Two weeks I got my hands on a very tidy 2010 Honda Civic Type R FD2 (that’s the Asia Pacific sedan version of the Civic). There are not many in NZ and it was the first one I have worked on. It was booked in for a Cobra AK4615 CAN-BUS alarm, I was hoping that it would be the same as the European FN2 Hatch back model electrically to make for an easier installation. Sadly it was not so I had to learn the car and wire it up the old fashioned way!
Not that its really a problem, it just takes more time and becomes one of those jobs that not may people can do well these days. Finding out how the car works and locating all the required wires needs much more skill and knowledge then simply following a instruction manual for a 6 wire CAN-BUS alarm installation!
Below is a photo of the Euro hatch version of the Type R which is the model covered by the Cobra AK4615 in CAN-BUS configuration.
Here are some shots of the car after the installation
The car only came with one Honda remote so I supplied a Cobra Remote to go with the plain transponder key. This is far more cost effective the purchasing a second Honda remote key.
The Cobra AK4615 also works with the standard version of the Honda Civic
