#2215 of 2254 Accord 2000 EX V6, check engine light on and miserable mileage (< 10 mpg)
Jun 07, 2012 (9:41 am)
Suddenly my Accord 2000 EX V6 check engine light on (I reset it and it is back on after a few days). And more importantly, mileage suddenly drop to around 9 mpg!

Well the clue is the check engine light, so get the car scanned.
Offhand, could be lots of things---bad 02 sensor might do that, leaking injectors, low compression, faulty timing....
You might check your oil and if the dipstick is way overfill, that would be a big hint for us.
But by all means, have a scan done. I think OReilly and Autozone still do them for free for you...and GET THE NUMBER of the code when you come back here.

Engine code: P0401. Exhause Gas Recirculation Flow Insufficient Detected.
With very low gas mileage, any educated guess on what goes wrong?

Bad egr valve, plugged egr tube----sure, that'll contribute to bad gas mileage depending on how the EGR is stuck---if open, that's not so good.
I can't say that the effect on MPG would be drastic, but it's a good first step. You might also want to check when you had your last tune-up and/or compression test.
also check your dip stick for signs of overfill--you could be leaking fuel into the crankcase from leaking/dripping injectors.

I found on Ebay. I had the same problem with my clock. I changed bulb. I purchased on Ebay for about $4.
#2222 of 2254 Re: replaced ignition switch; now keyless entry won't work [aepete]

I don't know if you tried this...if not, try it...
Entering the programming mode cancels all learned keyless remotes, so none of the previously programmed remotes will work. You must reprogram all of the keyless remotes once you are in the programming mode.
You must complete each step within 5 seconds of the previous step to keep the system from exiting the programming mode.
1. Turn ignition switch to ON (II)
2. Press the LOCK or UNOCK button on one of the remotes. (An unprogrammed remote can be used for this step.)
3. Turn ignition switch to LOCK (0)
4. Repeat steps 1, 2 and 3 two more times using the same keyless remote used in step 2
5. Turn the ignition switch to ON (II)
6. Press the LOCK or UNLOCK button on the same remote. Make sure the power door locks cycle to confirm you are in programming mode.
7. Press the LOCK or UNLOCK button on each remote you want to program. Make sure door locks cycle after you push each remote button to confirm system has accepted the remote.
8. Turn the igniton switch to LOCK (0) to exit programming mode.
9. Test remote
#2223 of 2254 Flush service
Jul 02, 2012 (11:13 pm)
Hello to all.
I'm almost close to change transmission fluid, power steering fluid and brake fluid. I have a 2000 Honda Accord v6 sedan.
Today I called Honda dealership to know how much they will charge for the service shown above and the person who does that service told me the following prices:
Transmission fluid service - $99.50,
Brake fluid exchange - $147.20,
and power steering fluid exchange - $104.19
Also he said that those prices include fluid, labor, shop supplies, and tax.
I need advise. Is it to expensive to do it in dealership or it can be done more less in other places such as Jiffy Lube?
Thanks in advance.

Best to let the dealer do the service,particulary,the transmission fluid drain and fill. Those prices are in the ballpark. I think my dealer charge $75. to do the trans drain and fill.
