Look in your manual. The procedures are described in my 2002 v6 manual. The spark plugs are easier if you have a 4 cylinder. It's just literally draining and refilling. I think the dealer charges about $50-75 for atf drain and refill. Same for coolant drain refill. Quoted me $ 225 on spark plugs. I bought 6 platinum plugs for $65 and did it myself. I do use a torque wrench to make sure I get the proper torque on each bolt or plug I install.

May be a coincidence, was using a gps with cig lighter for about 5 minutes. Then I tried to start car, not a sound. Wipers moved half way and stopped, some dash lights lit, no headlights, no radio, etc Door locks must be manually moved.
I would assume that if it was the battery we would hear a clicking sound from the starter relay. Nothing.
Is there a master fuse ??

Since your wipers did move a little, my guess is your battery developed a short. I've had that happen already.
#4285 of 5901 2005 Accord starter noise
Dec 11, 2008 (3:20 am)
For the last few months, about once a week, when I attempt to start the car there is a brief grinding noise. I immediatley stop, wait a few seconds and then start the car without any issues.
This is an intermitten problem so if I go to the dealer it can't be duplicated.
Should I have the starter replaced or wait for it to quit ?
Is this an expensive replacement ?

Dec 12, 2008 (9:39 am)
with 46000 miles, this morning dashboard light went out, speedometer, odometer, fuel gauge etc not funtional at all, while i am driving to work, only has "break, TCS & ABS" indicator on, however, turning signal and headlight still working.
Also, when headlight on, HVAC radio display on center console goes dim. when headlight off, it come back on.
I don't think going to be fuse, could be alternatoror something?

I had almost this same problem right before my battery died. Alternator was fine, just a defective battery.
You can get your battery tested/charged for free at many auto stores.

battery is OK, all the interior light, headlight and map light are working fine
how about yours?
the meter display module assemblely alone cost about $230,
I hope just replace battery will work...

just because the interior lights are on doesn't mean your battery is putting out a normal amount. And the electircs can't get shacked out when the current flow is low. If you are still on the original battery it is way overdue. Change it and you will know!
also have everything checked out (battery, altenator, etc.) Honda OEM batteries are prety weak to start with.

Battery for the keyless entry fob is now age 3.5.........
What sort of grief awaits (price, set screw difficult removal) ???
Should the dealer be involved? Perhaps a battery store? The nice jeweler that replaced my wristwatch battery?
