  4. Transponder keys can be copied easily by locksmith experts only if you provide them the VIN number of the key. Else, they use the machine to reprogram the key in the other way.
  5. I have a 2013 Honda Accord. My electronic steering has locked and the car is not drivable. I had it towed to the garage. The steering worked perfectly. They put it through all the diagnostics and nothing showed. I drove the car home and later went to go somewhere and the steering was locked up again. I researched this to find that there had been an investigation by the National Highway Traffic and Safety Board but it was closed in 2015. There have been more than 350,000 complaints registered about this very same problem. Help!

    Car problems

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Honda_Accord 5th Generation EX Accord is best description, 1995. It is very inexpensive to attempt any number of search engine queries for typical 5th Gen honda electrical relay problems, very likely a faulty relay, but they exist both inside engine compartment, and under dashboard; inexpensive to replace, just start replacing everything to see if it helps 😉 Search for typical 5th gen electrical problems, typical relay problems, typical electrical problems. Most parts retailers will allow you to return parts you don't need, if you exchange them for other parts. Or you can start with known problem electrical parts, cheapest first 😉 Your car may be too old to do much with scanning software but my 2004 EX Accord will usually tell me on my iphone what is wrong; with the right app installed. Once I fixed the air conditioning on an EX with a $12 relay in the engine compartment; known problem/fix for that generation car. Also, you don't mention if it's a 4 cyl or 6 cyl car? When I talk to others about my EX, it's a 4 cyl 2004 Seventh Gen Honda Accord EX/Leather, which means it has a very specific electrical layout for that engine and feature set, including the stereo, heated seats, etc.

    Car problems

    Ok so im having a few issues with my 95 ex accord, when im driving i keep hearing a clicking on the inside of the car that sounds like it coming from the passenger side and my battery light flashes and my gauges will drop for a second and go back to normal and the radio will turn of and come back on, something similar happend to one of my old accords and it was the ignition switch, but i replaced it on this one and still having the problems, my next guess was maybe main relay? Idk if anyone has any input i would greatly appreciate it, thanks
  8. I have a 2017 Honda Pilot elite. My max tow capability is 5000 pounds. I do have an ATF cooler installed on my vehicle but I am concerned about how much I can truly pull. We are purchasing a 2020 flagstaff epro 19BH. Dry weight is 3135 pounds. My cargo capacity for the triller is 772 pounds and the hitch weight is 360. We are also installing a weight distribution hitch and sway bar. I have read the pilots owners manual but I find it a bit confusing. We will be traveling with 2 adults and 2 kids plus our luggage. Will this put us over our 5000 pound limit? Considering my vehicle, will I have an issue trying to pull 5000 pounds? Any advice would be greatly appreciated!
  9. I have a 01 crv i blew the b20z2 it had in it nd now i got a b16a2 vtec with trans.. My crv is automatic nd i wanna know if the b16a2 trans which is stick shift? Would i be able to put in my crv nd make my crv stick shift? What would i need nd how can i do??? The b16a2 vtec came out of 99 si em1
  10. I thought this was interesting - the Ridgeline is the most reliable pickup truck : https://www.iseecars.com/articles/most-reliable-pickup-trucks. Usually Toyotas top these lists! I've got. 250,000 on mine and I plan on hitting the 300k mark!
  11. I bought a direct fit catalytic converter off of Ebay. Everything bolts up just fine but one corner of the engine side of the catalytic converter is touching the heat shield mounted on the tunnel above it. The new converter also did not come with any heatshields or even flanges so I could mount the ones I removed from the bad original converter. My only real concern is about heat transfer from the tunnel to the floorboards creating a possible carpet fire hazard…..think this will be an issue?
  12. i have a JDM RHD 1997 honda accord wagon with a digital climate control... does anyone know where I can get a reasonably price replacement..... the one i have is stuck between heat and cold ... ive tried facebook and ebay and cant find one
  13. Ok so I ran into a weird problem. My left turn signal works when I flip the switch to turn it on but when I have my lights on it doesn’t turn on. If that makes any sense. The Left tail light doesn’t turn on also but when i step on the breaks it still works. Not sure if anyone else has had this problem. Just not sure what it could be.

    Engine humming

    I have a 2015 civic exl and the engine is making a humming/grinding sound while it is running and gets louder as the rpm’s increase. The sound is coming from the rear passenger side of the engine. The belts seem fine and I checked the fluids. Any ideas on what this could be?

  16. Hey everyone my name is Jeremiah. I have a 93 accord wagon that has a oil leak coming out of the timing cove. wondering if any one has had this problem and if you have any tips on fixing it. thank you
  17. So every once in a while my car will click when i go to start it on the first try but if i try again it will start just fine. Could this possibly be a starter issue? Or an aged battery because its the original Honda battery .
  18. Why would lights on my 2006 CR-V... VSA light, Engine light and light w/exclamation point...start coming on when I start to accelerate? When these come on, it cuts my power.
  19. Hi there.We have a Honda Civic IX, first registration 2016 - Diesel 120 PS.We have got a couple days ago a letter from Honda. It's about updating the software of the exhaust gas cleaning system.Has anybody here got the software of his car updated? if yes, how is your experience? does the engine work fine / is the fuel consumption ok since then?I just want to make sure that there is no hidden update, which may cause any harm to the engine. This has happened a lot with Volkswagen, especially during the Diesel-Scandal.Many thanks in advanceBest regards.
  20. Follow up question... it's very hard to find a cluster exactly like my original. Even the second one I got that fixed the door sensor issue is not an EXACT match. My question is, should that matter for the sake of troubleshooting this fuel gauge if I use an identical one or not, because there are many cheap ones I can get and try that are made for AT cars. If all three connectors are the same, are everything else in the cluster works fine, shouldn't the fuel gauge also be working? Thanks.
  21. Hi, The fuel gauge in my '92 accord decided to stop working the other day. Kind of a long story but you will need this info to help me determine the next step. It's a DX sedan, MT, no ABS or CC, with A/C. I think this may be related to a problem I had with the open-door/brake light indicator, which started acting strange about a year ago and now just stays fully lit all the time. I took out all the seats to detail the interior well, and everything in the back looked fine when I did that (no signs of water intrusion, wire damage, etc.) I took apart the center console and dash plastic just enough to remove the instrument cluster to inspect it. Stereo connections and cig lighter power are left unplugged, everything else still connected. I opened up the cluster and there seems to be a burnt area on the back (green side) of the PCB, right near that door-open indicator. I suspected this was the cause of my problem so I ordered a replacement from a junk yard for $60 (annoying to have that thing lit up all the time, and rather fix the feature than delete it... should have just pulled the bulbs, I guess). When I put the cluster back in temporarily to drive the car (because my stupid Saab broke down!) the fuel gauge was no longer working. I figured I might have caused this by messing with the cluster, but I didn't really do anything to it. Anyways, when the new one arrived (w/ warranty and guaranteed working) I immediately opened it up and it had an almost IDENTICAL area of 'damage' where it looked like there was a short and some burning on the PCB. I installed the new cluster and everything worked perfectly, including the door-open indicators, EXCEPT the fuel gauge! At this point I immediately suspected a failed sending unit, which is a rare thing to fail. I looked up how to troubleshoot the sending unit in some Honda service manual. Voltage going to it was about 6V like it should be, ground was good, and voltage coming back was something like 3V. Jumped that return signal to ground (which should have made the gauge needle begin to climb, according to the manual) and nothing happened. Manual says to replace the gauge. Thinking I might have gotten struck by lightening and ended up with another bad cluster, I ordered a second replacement but it was the wrong version (not the NS version, but all the connections were the same. I hooked it up anyway and the fuel gauge didn't work, but not sure if it should have or not, being the wrong version). So I ordered ANOTHER one, making sure to get the NS version, but two of the 3 connectors were different, and it was damaged in shipping, so that one didn't really help me neither. Still thinking it's unlikely that it's the cluster, and failing to find the right one for my specific car, I turned my attention elsewhere. I pulled the sending unit from the gas tank and checked it's resistance... float from top to bottom, resistance changed from 0 to 100 ohm like it should. Reinstalled it. Ordered a new, genuine sending unit for the sake of troubleshooting, plugged it in, moved float around, no movement on gauge. So I'm stumped. Seems like I have a good gauge/cluster now, because it was guaranteed working and it fixed the door sensor issue, and a good sending unit in the gas tank (and yes, there's lots of gas in the tank, lol). But there is still that apparent damage on the PCB. Keep in mind, however, that my old one had basically identical damage on it when I pulled it, and right up until I pulled it, the fuel gauge was working just fine. Hence my confusion. What else could be wrong? Maybe 12V is shorting to the gauge somehow and making it always read empty? Does that even make sense? Is there more I can do to troubleshoot electrical? Jumper out on certain pins and check voltage at the cluster, for example? I can't find a schematic for it. By the way, I did take a close look at the connectors and pins on the clusters and nothing seems pushed or damaged, should all be connecting well. Please help me determine what a good next step would be. I am also considering installing an aftermarket gauge since the sending unit is 0-100 ohm and working, and I'm getting tired of messing with it. Thanks!

    I can't unlock my 2015 Honda civic with either of 3 fobs, or either of the 3 removable keys inside the fobs. It is possible that the car battery is dead because we found the trunk was left slightly open for several days. That should not interfere with the mechanical key inside the fob. How do we get the car open?
  23. Hello, how are you guys , is any body hear about that ? Apple CarPlay and android auto retrofit module https://www.aliexpress.com/item/4000828510820.html?spm=2114.12010612.8148356.2.28e333a0tHo52b Honda Android auto and carplay retrofit car video interface and integration at CarSight Store Obviously a lot of you have wondered if it was possible to install Apple CarPlay there are a lot of Chinese companies selling Android Auto/ Apple CarPlay retrofit kits, I just don't see enough information about this particular company (CarSight). This is their AliExpress vendor page https://www.aliexpress.com/store/4692109?spm=a2g0o.detail.1000061.1.3ee52eb6nZuigG Anywho, CarSight seems to have good reviews for the units they have sold the most. Also, I have seen there are options for BMW, Audi & Mercedes from other vendors. So my question is, who is going to take the plunge and try it our because I am too scared to do it! Seems pretty legit though and I see a lot of similarities between their documentation/information and what is available from the Naviplus site & videos. What do you guys think?

    Targa top

    After searching I am a little uncertain. My apologies for asking a dumb questions. I read that the 95 and later del sols had improved seals. Am I correct that the front and back seals(attached to the car) were not improved but the window side seals(attached to the top) are the ones that got improved. If so then any top, improved or not, will fit on any car? The reason I ask is because my front and back seals are in excellent condition but the window seals need replacing. As there appears to be no new seals available I am thinking I can buy off ebay one of the newer tops with improved seals that might be in better shape. If I am correct in my understanding then my next questions is how can you tell which tops have the newer seals. I see tops for sale but they never seem to specify what year they are from. Again, my apologies for asking a newbie question. I tried to figure it out on my own with no luck. Thanks
  25. I have a 2008 honda odyssey touring with nav. Im getting code U0155 when I hook up my Obd2 scanner.I also have a check transmission and check airbag system notification. Car flashes check engine light 4 or 5 times then goes away on startup.Car runs and drives just fine.instrument cluster functions normally except for not showing what gear i am in but shows im in park on start up then when CEL comes on it dissapears.Im I ran a multimeeter on my OBD2 port on pins 14 and 6 and got 56 ohms i also ran pin 16 to 4 and 5 and got my battery volatage if this help.on my scan tool it does show my vin correctly if thats any useful information Update- I ran a different setting on my obd2 scanner and i get a code for just about every sensor for the engine and transmission and they all say test not completed during this operation cycle
  26. Use Youtube ma man: https://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=honda+accord+1997+door+lock+problems dozens of videos on your car type: it's either actuators, or switches, or a combo of BOTH, have fun because it's easiest to debug EARLY, not later after 3 things break bro man.

    I and my immediate family have owned 13 toyotas and ive worked on all of them. I picked up a 2002 civic to resell. Ive got to say ive never seen a car rust like this. Even the splash guards for the brake assembly. Now the engineering. Come on!!!!!! You got to punch the bearings out to put in a wheel stud? You got to remove the bearing hub to replace the splash guards. Ive never. Not to mention the rockers that were well undercoated. Trash!!!
  28. Hey guys. I have a 1997 Honda Accord Ex 2.2l vtec. I bought the car a while back and the power locks only worked to lock the car. I was confused but it was nothing to worry about. But then the power locks would work at all. Not even to lock. So do you think it is a switch, wiring issue, or what? Please let me know?
