    I have a 1997 Civic EX and I just installed a new deck. The problem is that the keyless entry wont work. I was wondering if anyone out here knows how to bypass that harness to make the keyless entry work?

    The keyless entry is integrated through the radio. Ive seen people install the radios in the trunk, just to save keyless entry.

    Fresh off the Crutchfield Sight:


    Connections:

    Note: In order to retain your factory keyless entry functionality, you'll need to keep your factory radio, and relocate it inside your dash behind the lower trim panel. This harness has two plugs - one connects to the factory wiring, and the second plugs into the factory radio to provide power to it. If you remove the factory radio, you will lose your factory keyless entry feature.

    12V constant power
    12V switched power
    chassis ground
    power antenna turn-on
    dimmer
    left front speaker +/-
    right front speaker +/-
    left rear speaker +/-
    right rear speaker +/-

    Thats pretty friggin ghetto, but I suppose it has to be done.

    The link to the "harness" that they are referring to.-----> HERE <-----

    Scosche Makes a relocation kit for the factory radio to be put into the trunk. If you dont want to do that then yes you do have to smash it into the dash under the aftermarket radio. It Fits

    could be worse you could have a gm car that needs the factory radio to retain the use of the airbags among other critical things for your car.
