Before I could get there, they had reset by pulling battery cables and replacing. Since then, when you exit the car, without using the FOB, the doors automatically lock. It did not do this before the event. FOB works as before. Sure would like to know what changed or how to reset to a previous setting.
You SHOULD have a user manual that came with the security system when it was installed.
The instructions for changing the arming mode from AUTO to MANUAL are on page 6.
(Looks like you just stick the key in several times....easy enough to change it by accident.)

(I tried this one, it works.)
Go to the Honda corporate website, register your info on "ownerlink" and you can probably download the manual from there.
