I've talked to Honda they say it's the immobilizer
I would start there.

Also in order to work on certain parts of the car other parts of the car have to accessed. Where there has been human play or work there typically is an error of something simple. A ground not re-installed, connector, another damaged part that occured at the same time as something completely random. Electrical seems to be the problem you are smelling..

Have you tried going through the Honda RSX service manual? That is what Honda will do in the troubleshooting section first thing.

Open & Shorts

Open - a break in electrical wire or at a connection

Shorts - an accidental connection of a wire to a ground or another wire.

Something in that harness is damaged possibly, meaning the wire is broken (open) and/ or there maybe an accidental connection to a ground or another wire. I am willing to bet it has something to do with human error. However with complex electronics with our systems (such as ECM's & PCM's) something can still work not just the way it should or it will not work at all.
