  2. What Haynes manual is that.? What year.? Like the previous owners I can't trace 1. I believe they stopped issuing manuals after 2006. I own a 2007 cdti 2.2 Diesel & am not aware of a manual or indeed from Haynes Keith
  3. I had this issue a couple of weeks ago with a Kia Sportage, virtually same issues.....ended up changing the alternator and sorted it. However, the alternator was trying to charge so I checked all the leads, especially the earth leads to ensure there was continuity throughout the charging circuit before committing to a new/rebuilt alternator. If the alternator is hot then chances are it is more than likely faulty. Let us know how you get on with it
  4. Last week
  5. So I am pretty sure my alternator is going out, my battery light has come on and I have charged my current battery and spare battery fully and made the battery clamps tight, I read the battery’s with a multimeter on 20 D.C. and both battery’s at around 12.6 I also checked the positives on the alternator itself while grounding to the battery as well as the alternator housing and it is also getting around 12.6 so it doesn’t seem to be an issue with the battery cables reaching the alt. When I turn the engine on the battery and alternator read around 14.5 but very quickly after 30 seconds running and a few revs it will drop down to as low as 12.4, if I turn electronics on it will get even lower. The alternator is burning hot to the touch after running for a short time, hotter than any other part on the engine. Am I missing anything any other tests I should do before buying a whole new one and what brand would people recommend? Don’t want to spend 100-200 pound of it may be something else. Also the car is at around 125000 miles and as far as I am aware the Alternator is original stock so it may be time for a new one. I will replace the unit myself so any tips appreciated. I am also in the UK. Many Thanks
  6. Will anybody know how to reset clock, I can follow sat nav manual for supposed procedure, but does not change time in radio. Any ideas will be much appreciated,, regards, Maurice,
  7. I had the same error code come up on my 06-plate FRV. The problem was intermittent, first the engine malfunction indicator light came on for a couple of days, then it went off for a day or so. Then it came back on for about a day, then over the following two weeks it kept going on and off, but each time it came back, it stayed on for less time and the gap between when it went off and when it next came on again increased then it went off and hasn't been seen for several months. Never got to the bottom of it, nor found out where that particular sensor is (apparently there are two temperature sensors - especially due to the fact that this one is described as #2) and our mechanic wasn't sure which was which. Not sure if it's relevant but this all happened after we left our car parked near an airport when we went on holiday for a week
  8. Can you clean up the connection or make an external connection with some wire and splice it into the loom? If not, then breakers yard is the other option I suppose but possibly has the same issue if it is a common fault Let us know how you get on with it
  9. Let us know if it fits okay, cheers
  10. Hi ..... welcome to the Forum Good to have you onboard
  11. Hi Pob....welcome to the Forum I personally would go for the older version solely because they were free of any issues and not so sure about the newer spec ones. The CDTi engine is sound and should never give any issues so no worries there. Just make sure that if it is the older model that it has been maintained correctly and at the specified times. Let us know how you get on with finding one
  12. I think you'll find once you use the system (Sat Nav and Radio) that it will take the time from these signals and update the time/date automatically
  13. Thanks Trevor iv really struggled with this but just purchased them in the end. We'll see. Fingers crossed.
  14. I have a 2015 CRV and a few weeks ago I did a reboot of the HFT to resolve a reversing camera issue and the Android updated. I now cannot change the time in the Settings menu as all the options are greyed out. Can anyone help with this issue please?
  15. for letting me join, have a 2015 4WD 1.6 Diesel living in Lincs
  16. Hello all new to the Honda world well will be once I find the car I'm looking for. I'm looking for a Honda civic cdti face-lift model and was wondering whats better to go for the face-lift model 2010 or the older version can you give me reason to what version to go for? Thanks pob
  17. Hi everyone i have a FRV 2005 plates the engine check light is on and is giving a fault code temperature sensor 2 fault the connection is corroded can any one suggest where i can purchase one or i have to buy a complete harness
  18. yes, same area but seperate when removed the retaining screws
  19. Hi again, was your control unit built in to the radio/CD etc? Thanks
  20. Hi Trevor, did you replace the control unit, or literally just the facia? Thanks
  21. Hi....welcome to the Forum from memory and replacing control unit on a CRV a few weeks ago, carefully remove the fascia plate and the panel stays in place with a couple screws retaining it. Replaced the panel and the A/C worked fine after that. Let us know what you find
  22. I have an Accord 2008 (03-08). I've had major problems with the air con since I bought it 5 years ago, but otherwise a great car. I've now had all parts replaced, except the control unit. It now works, but erratically. Sometimes there's no cold air at all, sometimes it's only on one side, then the other side of the car, regardless of dual being off and both sides being at the same temp. Seeing as all parts have been replaced with exception of the control unit, I'm guessing that this must be faulty? If so, does this mean the whole radio /sat nav/CD unit has to be replaced too? Thanks.
  23. Earlier
  24. Hi....welcome to the Forum Not entirely sure of accessing sub-menus in the vehicle system and indeed what levels are available in the dealer software/hardware to be able to initialise this feature. As you say, it is functional in the States and also other countries where insurance specifies it has to occur for reasons of personal safety. It is worth asking your local dealer if they can 'switch it on' for you. Let us know what you find out
  25. Hi, I have a 2016 civic touring diesel in manual. i want to know if it’s possible to set the doors to lock themselves when driving away?
