Major electrical problems

Recommended Posts

Hi all

Having a problem... car still running BUT ...

 

Tailgate opening button not working from outside (electrically) but can open manually from inside

 

Passenger left front window not working

 

Wing mirror left passenger not working  and heater demist system not working

 

Flashers not working when locking / unlocking car

 

Note: these electrical problems above have been seasonal for the last 5 years - i.e. warm periods NO PROBLEMS AT ALL and then colder / wetter periods THE PROBLEMS APPEAR suddenly

 

UNTIL this summer when the problems persisted

 

Anyone recognise this set of issues and any potential remedy?

I am having it looked by a dealership next week

Hi....welcome to the Forum

 

Certainly sounds like water ingress in a body control unit.

Alternative thoughts are maybe it could be some wiring in the tailgate area so when the tailgate opens and closes it breaks the wiring in the loom which connects the two.
Can give loads of strange faults, easy to check and repair though

 

Let us know how you get on with it

Thank you Trevor - much appreciated! I'm going to Reading Honda garage on Wednesday so this information is excellent and does fit with some thoughts I was having. best regards Carl
