#2078 of 2260 ignition interlock recall
Aug 15, 2010 (4:10 am)
I have a 2002 accord with 85 K. After I saw the recent updated recalls for the ignition interlock I went an tested my 2002 and the key can be removed when the car is in drive.
I happened to be at the dealer for another Honda service and made an appointment to fix. They checked my records and said the recall had already been done on the car, although they did not have the date.
Does anyone know when the original recall came out for 2002 cars? I presume Honda will have the date when it was allegedly done.
Also, is it possible the clip could have broken again or is it more likely they did not fix it?
I intend to call Honda to ask them to fix it again - anyone know what happens when a recalled item is fixed (i presume it was), then fails again.
Honestly, considering how little i use this car, it was probably never done.

Thanks - called Honda today.They said it was done in 2006, but if it is the same issue they will cover it again.
I sort of remember about 2 years ago, I came inside the house and I heard a small crash outside (although crash is really overstating it). I went outside and saw my car had moved a few feet and hit a rake and a trash barrel - no damage - barely heard it. I saw the shift in drive. At that time I thought it was odd it had rolled, but just assumed I hit the gear shift as I was coming out of the car or something. Anyway, it was definitely after 2006.
Ironically, I have another Honda that had a recall related to the ignition at about the same time - different issue, but I must have assumed the recall notice related to the other car and not thought about it and did not even know there was a recall on this until I started reading the paper about 03 recalls and thought I would check mine..
Anyway, they are covering it again but I still believe it must not have been done.
#2081 of 2260 Do I have Keyless Entry, how can I check?
Aug 18, 2010 (8:06 pm)
I bought my son a 2001 Honda Accord Ex from a private party. By the vin, it is supposed to be equipped with keyless entry. The private party wasn't the original owner but said they never had a remote for the car. So I bought a remote and followed the programming sequence published in several places on the web.... close all doors and trunk, turn key from off to on, hit lock button on remote turn key off, repeat three more times without allowing 5 seconds to expire between steps. Anyway, nothing ever happens. Maybe the keyless entry is broken... but everything else seems to work electrically with the car so I'm wondering how to tell if the car does in fact have the keyless entry option. I thought: well maybe the transmitter I bought is not working... but the led comes on so it appears to be transmitting. Any suggestions?

It was standard equipment on the Accord EX for 2001.
#2083 of 2260 Cabin vs air conditioning filter
Aug 20, 2010 (10:33 pm)
I have a Honda Accord 2000 and I'm a bit confused about air filters. Do I have both a cabin air filter (the one behind the glove compartment) and an air conditioning filter? If so, where is the ac filter and is it fairly easy to replace (ie, no harder than the cabin filter). Thanks!

There is only one filter that is servicable and that is the cabin filter behind the glove compartment. A/C evap or condenser may have some type of an in- line filter that that do not require ever replacing. Your filters are cabin, air, oil, and transmission ( if it is automatic). The old canister fuel filters are now a little screen in pick up tube inside the gas tank which is not considered servicable.
#2086 of 2260 SRS & Low Beam Headlights
Aug 23, 2010 (3:54 am)
2000 Accord EX (75,000 miles)-about 2 weeks ago the SRS light appeared on the dashboard and stays on. A few days ago lost both regular beam headlights but high beams, turn signals and parking lights work. Is there any connection? What to do for either.

IDK about your headlights - it could be that they simply burned out at the same time. I've had that happen to me and spent a lot of effort looking for something only to find out both bulbs went out at the same time. The SRS light is a safety issue that is covered by the manufacturer. Probably seat belt tension pulley or something like that. They had several TSBs on that issue for 2000 accords and it is covered regardless of mileage.
