#2222 of 2254 Re: replaced ignition switch; now keyless entry won't work [aepete]
Jul 02, 2012 (11:06 pm)
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.
#2225 of 2254 Question on 2001 Honda Accord serpentine belt that just shredded
Jul 14, 2012 (10:41 am)
I do not possess the skills to repair much on my 2001 Honda Accord EX.
On Tuesday my auto repair shop put on new bushing(s) and link(s) on the left front control arm (driver’s side) because of a squeaking noise in that area. On Friday afternoon I heard a strange new noise coming from the motor area of the car. I opened the hood and saw the alternator was not aligned correctly. I drove the car about 20 more miles on Friday and did not hear any more strange noises.
This morning (Saturday) my serpentine belt on the passenger side shredded when I started the car in the morning. I looked at the alternator and saw a loose bolt which caused the alternator to twist off center and the serpentine belt to shred.
I can come up with two possible causes for this situation.
First possibility: The shredded belt is a late result of the work of my brother (a very accomplished do-it-yourself mechanic who has a separate 2 stall garage for auto work) when he and I put on a new alternator over 6 months ago. Perhaps it took 6 months for the bolt to loosen and cause the problem.
Second possibility and my question: Is it possible the mechanic who put on the new bushing(s) and link(s) on the left front control arm needed to loosen the alternator located behind the radiator on the right front (passenger side) of my car to accomplish his work?
Your opinions and thoughts are greatly appreciated.

One shouldn't have to touch the alternator to work on the control arm, no.
As for your brother--it's pretty hard to trace something like this back to a job done 6 months ago. More likely, just vibration worked it loose, or perhaps the threads on the bolt (or worse, the block itself) are damaged. I'd certainly inspect those things carefully before proceeding with a repair. It's also possible some bracket could have broken.

Thanks for your reply and your useful information.

Greetings all. Supposedly got the ac fixed a month ago, then 2wks later it's blowing ambient air again. The mechanic did install a used compressor though. Took it back to him, he put some freon in and it blew cool just for that day now its back to regular air. Basically I'm tired of putting money in and have started looking at newer vehicles. Could this be an easy fix though?
Condenser maybe? Is it worth it with 282000 miles on it? Just thinking of cutting my losses. Any opinion would be helpful..thanks.

Well, if he put freon IN, that means that freon leaked OUT at some point, so...where all leaks repaired and tested, first of all?
Could be an expansion valve....you should perhaps go to an AC specialist and have the system tested.
As much as it might cost to fix the AC properly, it's still way cheaper than another car. Presuming yours runs well and looks good, it would be worth the investment. You should be able to run the car up to 225K--250K.

Thanks so much. I agree it would still be "cheaper to keep her" but its now at 282000 miles and I'm just suffering from car fatigue..we'll see.

Hey so I think I might be having a similar problem with my accord. It's a 2001 Accord ex I just drove it over 200k miles. The problem has been going on for about 6 months now. Although I think mine might be slightly different; the only time the a/c doesn't work is when the dashboard a/c lights won't turn on. But once the a/c lights are on the a/c works great.
I've spoken with a friend of mine who is great with cars and he thinks it could just be a bad ground behind the dashboard. Problem is if he is right I have absolutely no experience with dashboards and those can be very complicated.
So question is if he is wrong what is the problem and if he is right where can I get reliable info. on how to remove the dash and fix it?
Thanks for the help.
