#5840 of 5901 Dead Battery
Dec 14, 2012 (5:55 pm)
It finally died, 1.5 months short of 6 years. I read previous posts about using a battery for the v-6 in 4-cyl models accords. My question is, has anyone bought a battery for their 4-cyc accord using the 35 series in the past 6-8 months and what CCA and CA does it have and does it crank immediately or is it taking a lot of time to crank? This is about a 2007, SE 41--- miles. I called Honda in my area and the v-6 battery they offer for about $90.00 has only 460 cca which is way too little for my liking!! We have in my area Advanced Auto, Autozone, and O'Rilley's. And of course wal-Mart. Any suggestions????

I replaced my battery today and now need to know the procedure for entering the radio code. I have the code that was written in my owners manual at the dealership the day I bought it. I tried cranking it up turning on the radio which said CODE and tried to put in the 5 numbers but it would just spell the word CODE and ERR1. It would not register any numbers. Any one know the correct procedure??? The owners manual doesn't say anything about the procedure. The glove box does NOT have any numbers printed in it.

Disconnect battery cable for 2 minutes. (because you have tried too many times to enter the code)
Turn key to "accessories"
Press radio power to on
Then wait for a BEEP
Then enter your code with the presets

Had the exact same problem with our '06 accord and brought it to a shop to diagnose Was advised that it was simply low freon. They charged the system and we haven't had a problem since. Easy fix: buy a can at Walmart and give it a shot - you might get lucky.
#5844 of 5901 Interior LED Repair Help Needed for 2005 Accord
Dec 19, 2012 (6:39 am)
On my 2005 Honda Accord all of the LEDs on the door panels and the steering wheel are going dim. The steering wheel itself is the worse and are nearly gone out. Been looking on youtube for answers but no help there so far.

Well I think I said 2 minutes, so I was only wrong by ten minutes---and what's 10 minutes in a lifetime? (unless of course it's your last 10 minutes).
Good work! Glad to hear this has been squared away!

Never know, Shifty. We're pretty close to the 21st, end of the world and all, and you're suggesting using valuable final moments on WAITING.
#5848 of 5901 Replacement Power steering hoses
Feb 01, 2013 (2:47 pm)
I had to have my hose replaced in June after noticing smoke coming from the engine. I am told by the company that I will be reimbursed for my costs( remains to be seen) but not provided a new "heat resistant" hose because the repair was not completed by the dealership/ is an "aftermarket" part. My question is this; is my aftermarket part likely to be suitable or Heat resistant? I have been told that the original hose was probably a lesser quality hose and that the aftermarket hose is better quality, which is what they are scrambling to "manufacture" for replacements. Any parts people out there?
