    Hi all, I have recently bought a '02 HR-V. which had a Honda 'Personalarm' add-on fitted by the first owner. Essentially, there is this red 'Panic' button on the dashboard. Once pressed apparently all hell breaks loose. All information I have about it is a random page torn from some booklet, which says that once pressed, it will go on indefinitely until a 'hidden re-set switch is pressed', but unfortunately, doesn't mention where said button can be found. I am wondering if anyone has any knowledge of that?

    I have found some Honda brochures online (e.g. https://honda-HR-V-1st Generation.nikolchev.info/wp-content/uploads/2016/01/HR-V98-01YM.pdf) where it's described as 'Personal Attack Alarm'. It also says more info can be found in 'Honda Advanced Security Systems' brochure, but I don't have access to that.

    Any help/information would be greatly appreciated. The idea of having this panic button so easily accessible, and not being able to turn it off, makes me feel somewhat uneasy..
