    Abs fault

    The problem may be stemming from poor battery terminal connections so I would check there first. Otherwise, the fault may be more complex, see link: http://www.vehix411.com/6611-2/
  3. Hi....welcome to the Forum Wow! that's a lot of miles on the clock but as I say, it obviously got there by being a reliable car £795 is cheap enough, go for it 🙂
  4. Great result so far Andy! Don't forget also to get the Shell Drivers Card as it gives you money back when you accrue enough points....win, win!
  5. Great result Bob! It's worth publicising the supplier as I'm sure there are lots of people out there who desire a full size spare wheel in their car.
  6. Hi Folks Problem solved. Full size wheel with tyre, scissor jack, wrench, clamping bolt for wheel in the boot all for £115-00. Looked online and found the Wheel Shop in Manchester. They supply spare wheels for all vehicles who's manufacturers don't supply spares. The wheel, jack and wrench all fit in the well in the boot. The wheel is bolted down so no MOT problem and the floor of the boot sits at the same level position as original.
  7. I’m looking into buying a Honda Civic this weekend as I’ve always like how they look and I generally think they’re good cars. But I don’t know much about the insides, I’m looking at a 1.8 civic that’s got 218,000 miles on but is £795.. do you think this is a good cheap car to get?
  8. Abs light came on and another i light had a friend put his diagnostic on it came up with 54-1 Fail-Safe relay failure
  9. Well I have had 3 days now with the Supermarket diesel and all good, but will be using Shell in the future. I agree Trevor there is always a raised heartbeat and fingers crossed when I'm in the outside lane overtaking a line of trucks, but I'm sure the confidence will come back.
  10. Honda CRV Headlights for UK Model (2002 - 2006) Genuine UK Honda RHD Headlights (I live in France so changed to left hand headlights) Good as New Condition £25 Each + postage and packing £45 For pair + postage and packing Please contact if interested
  11. Look forward to hearing the diagnosis. Get him also to pay particular attention to any earth cables and battery connections which could be causing the issue
  12. Shell also do loyalty points which equates to money off in the future 🙂
  13. It's difficult to regain confidence in a vehicle I find once it has played up, but after a while when it has gone wrong I tend to forget it and just continue driving with no problems....assuming it doesn't occur anymore in the future.
  14. Hi Trevor, the Italian tune up was done a couple of weeks back. The car has been fine since the last stop on the Monday of the software update. I have put Supermarket fuel in this week though just to try and pinpoint the issue.
  15. I put Esso in last week and my issue with the cutting out stopped, but put Supermarket in this week to see if it was that causing the issue, will let you know. That was 5p a litre more though in the Esso, the local Shell is only 2p more so will be Shell from now on if they keep it that price.
  16. Hi Trevor I suspected a battery as my partners job is community car so it's stop start all the time. So left for a few hours and all seems OK now weird???? But its going to the mechanic later for further testing will keep post updated. Thanks for the reply
  17. Sounds like the headlamps can't breath with the condensation inside. Maybe leave the covers off from the back (where you would replace the bulbs) to allow some air to circulate
  18. It definitely sounds like the battery is failing. Check the terminals are tight on the battery and that there is no corrosion on them. Failing that, check the alternator output (which sounds like its okay if the revs affect the dash illumination) and replace the battery if in doubt.
  19. Ok thanks mate. If the condensation keeps coming back I will whip them out and have a proper look. Will the heat from headlights dry them out as I drive? Or could the vent holes be blocked?
  20. It sounds like it could be a sensor at fault if the DPF and regens are okay then it is the only thing that I would be leaning towards. Maybe that or a software update, worth contacting your Honda dealership to enquire if this is the case
  21. With the amount of rain we have had lately I am not at all surprised that its getting in everywhere. The easiest and most accurate method to determine where water is getting in is to use a Smoke Generator which will leak the smoke out wherever the water is getting in, far easier to see it as well
  22. Can anyone help. My 2007 2.2 diesel type s decided to play up when I needed to get to work. I started to clear the frost my windscreen came back to it 15 minutes later and noticed alll the dash lights are on and the dash flickering and getting brighter as I rev it. The steering wheel was locked in place and the power steering warning light on. It had been fine the day before and the battery is less than 18 months old. I have gone back to the car just a second ago all the dash is on and still flickering radio works but now it won't start. My mechanic is in bed with man flu is there anything I can try in the mean time? Many thanks
  23. Hi Oarsman Have the exact same problem with my electrics. You wouldn't have the part number for the relay or the exact location of it. Woud it be the switch for the passenger side window? Any help would be much appreciated.
  24. Hi there, Well Basically I cleaned the front of the headlights today but I noticed a fair bit of moisture inside the light. Does anyone have any tips on how to stop moisture from getting in? I don't have a problem taking them off. I will probably do it tomorrow as I have a 160 mile night trip to do. I read somewhere that you can take it out and fill it with water to see where water is getting in? I don't really want to but new lights if possible. Also I have a puddle under my spare wheel in the boot. It's quite a lot of water in there. Is it probably the boot seal? tia
  25. Hi, hoping for a light bulb moment from avid CR-V fans. My DPF alarm illuminated on the dash about 3 months ago and went into limp mode. The garage conducted a force regen and sent me on my way. All was good for about 2 months until it happened again. This time my local garage couldn't clear the fault so I took it to a terra clean "specialist" who charged me a small fortune, cleared the fault, force regen again and said that all my stats were good and maybe my previous garage didn't regen it correctly. Fast forward 25 miles and it's back on. Any thoughts please? Because I can't keep taking it in for them to charge me the world and it go wrong in less than 24 hours
