2013 Honda Accord EX-L V6
Purchased from Bell Honda in Phoenix, Arizona.
Disabled the ANC module by removing the two pieces of molding between the seats. Removed the console pocket via the two visible screws. Removed the Bluetooth module by removing the two 7mm bolts and disconnecting. ANC module was then visible and removed plug from back side. Other websites have also reported this being much easier to access by removing the plastic wall at the left side of the passenger's foot compartment.
Took the Accord into the dealership because we discovered that the passenger's side electronic seat controls were not working. Upon inspection they found they had been disconnected during alarm or remote start installation. Plugged it back in and the power seats were verified to work.

Passenger rear tire was flat and the tire pressure light came on. I refilled the tire and took it to Bell Honda. They repaired the tire which had a screw in it at no cost. Also asked about remote start issue: When trying to operate remote start the fob displays an indicator to put the car in park, when the car is already in park. I suspect the sensor is misaligned or bad. Will follow up at first oil change in a few weeks.
Took in for first oil change and also to fix the faulty remote start.

Passenger seat electronics were non-operational. This was the same issue as before and had to do with how the remote start was connected. Seems to be completely fixed after this visit.
