#5803 of 5868 Trunk light issue
Feb 21, 2012 (11:57 pm)
I have a 2005 Honda Accord sedan and my trunk light doesn't turn on when the trunk is open. I checked the bulb and related fuses but it won't come on. By accident I left the trunk open while backing out of my driveway and the red light that appears on the dash board when a door is open didn't turn on. I wonder if the switch or connection is faulty? Anyone have this issue and if so what did you do to remedy it? Thanks.

I checked my 04 Accord and here is what I found. On the right side of the latch mechanism under the lid, you'll see a connector plugged into the mechanism, the wires trail off and into the lid. I unplugged the white connector and the light went off, plugging back in and the light's back on. You might want to check the connector to see it's properly connected. I would also guess that shorting the 2 wires in the plug will bypass the latch and light up the lamp.

I have got the exact same problem (power windows not working, key fop not locking/unlocking, drivers side power locks not working) on my 03 Accord. Did you ever find a resolution to the issue?

just replying to a post from Honda about the radio going dark......... does that apply to Canada? I have a 2004 accord with 92000 km. Would greatly appreciate your help. I know the posting is old from 2007 but this could be great news. Thanks

I ended up sending it to Southern Electronics in Richmond, Va. They have instructions on their site on how take remove the radio from yor Accord (very easy, just be gentle). Cost me $200 which is a lot better than the dealer. Quick turn around too. Good experience dealing with them. Www.carradio.com

I have no idea if the radio display warranty extension applies to Canada. Sorry.
#5810 of 5868 Deal From My Honda Dealer

I just received a coupon from my Honda dealer for a cabin air filter replacement for only $59.95.
I hope everyone here knows that you can purchase a filter for 12 to 15 dollars (you do not need a Honda brand filter) and install it in all of 5 minutes. You may get a little bit of dust on your hands.
A reasonable charge of 25 to 30 dollar for replacement by the Honda dealer would be much better for customer relations.

Well you have lower overhead than a dealer is the reason. He has to make X per hour on his line mechanics, no matter what they do. The labor rate is .4 of an hour + $21 for the part. So at the usual dealer rates these days of around $100/hr, the price makes sense.
Think of it as going to a restaurant for breakfast as opposed to you cooking it yourself.
Actually, changing that filter is probably easier than making breakfast.

I see people all the time, complaining about how much dealerships charge, to do this or that. IMO, if you are too lazy or unskilled to do it yourself, you have no right to complain about how much someone else is charging to do it for you. It's like the guy I saw in a store the other day buying a lottery ticket, and complaining that it was a ripoff? He didn't have to buy one.
