  1. Yesterday
  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. 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,
  6. 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
  7. Let us know if it fits okay, cheers
  8. Hi ..... welcome to the Forum Good to have you onboard
  9. 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
  10. 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
  11. yes, same area but seperate when removed the retaining screws
  12. Earlier
  13. 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
  14. One from a Toyota owners club news page but the principles are the same https://www.toyotaownersclub.com/news/articles/tips-on-how-to-keep-your-car-germ-free-r117/?fbclid=IwAR13lZqb_h4a90IwUtOwnnBMaEOg29r8g0XT8R22Obxbpjr6ndIu70zbDpA
  15. From 30 March 2020, MOT due dates for cars, motorcycles and light vans will be extended by 6 months. This is being done to help prevent the spread of coronavirus. https://autoevoke.com/index.php?/news/forums/from-30-march-2020-mot-due-dates-will-be-extended-by-6-months-r119/
  16. Hi....welcome to the Forum Usually DAB requires an additional aerial to pick up digital stations. https://www.halfords.com/technology/car-audio/stereo-fittings/autoleads-dab-film-antenna-smb---dab-aa1-338357.html Worth trying for £20 to see if that improves things
  17. Hi Nick....welcome to the Forum I believe there are a few other early Accord owners on this site. Many miles on it? Good to have you (and your wife's car) onboard
  18. Hi....welcome to the Forum Sorry to hear about the FRV as the diesel engine is usually so reliable Look forward to seeing some pics of the Stream
  19. Hi Iain.....welcome to the Forum It sounds like one of two things: Power Steering Fluid is low Auxiliary drivebelt is slipping or damaged Check also the tyre pressures are correct (e.g. above 30 psi) Let us know what you find
  20. Thanks Trevor !! I have never posted anything anywhere so this is all new to me ! John
  21. Hi Cameron....welcome to the Forum The Civic does indeed come in many different forms and having driven a few its fair to say that I think it definitely comes down to personal choice. Take as many different variants out and see which one floats your boat the most. Let us know how you get on with it
  22. Hi....welcome to the Forum I too have recently tackled a similar task on a 2005 CRV and although I have not yet removed the heater motor I have diagnosed it as the motor at fault....power going to the motor but not working, has to be the motor. Would be interested to know what you eventually find it to be as I have to tackle this job in the near future
  23. With all the bad news thats going around lately, let's all keep our chin up with a bit of music. Let's run a "Your song of the day" using YouTube videos Pop a new song up daily and keep it going! my choice today is The Chain by Fleetwood Mac, seems to be chilling me out but giving just enough drive to power me through the day 🙂
  24. My first thoughts are you have a slight exhaust leak before the cat, or even a crack in the manifold. The only true way to determine this is to either place a rag firmly over the exhaust and listen for escaping air....there's your leak! Alternatively, if you have a friendly garage, ask them to measure the oxygen levels in the exhaust gases and if much more than 0% to 1% you have air in the gas which means its drawing it from somewhere and not burning it (post combustion) Let us know what you find
  25. I would probably think that it wouldn't be a crank sensor if the engine is running and restarts (albeit reluctantly). If the fuel pump was replaced then there is probably air in the fuel filter head which if you pump the bulb then this will draw it to the top and then engine will fire up almost instantly. If the bulb is weak and gets firmer with pumping it then you have air trapped in the system which needs to be bled out
  26. Hi Dan.....welcome to the Forum Here is a link to Adrian Flux who provide a discount to Owners Club members on policies. https://www.adrianflux.co.uk/car-insurance/ If you mention Honda Owners Club and hopefully you'll get a cheaper quote
