#115 of 131 Re: Harmonic Drone Fix, Reset ANC [jbo3]

Last week I had a new ANC system installed in my 2005 Hybrid Accord. The car runs much quieter now BUT I get this unbearable ear popping/pressure feeling every time I turn on the engine. I feel like I'm under 20 feet of water. There is no noise to hear. It's just an intensely uncomfortable feeling. The weird thing is that not everyone can feel it. The Honda mechanics couldn't feel it so they didn't know what to fix.

Thank you so much for this post! The drone went away! I took off the panel that holds the tcs button which required me to remove one philips screw at the bottom left and grounded the green/red wire up high on a bolt that had another ground. It's out of the way and looks original. I didn't have to remove any of the connectors on the fuse block but just unplugged the gray 8-pin connector on top of the fuse block and cut and splice a longer wire in. Saved a bunch of money! Cost to repair: $0 (had existing connectors)
#121 of 131 2005 honda accord hybrid ANC problem, booming noise?
Jul 17, 2012 (6:31 am)
if u have 2005, V6 Hybrid Accord, which is making some noise sounds like a booming or humming noise with some vibration, when decelerating or easing off on gas. Goes away when braking or accelerating again? Find 8 pin gray connector which is located behind of yellow connector, and cut the green/red wire. Then ground it to bolt securing hood release.
here is the link you can fix your problem.

If I follow the instruction for eliminating the Drone noise mentioned in #112 of 121 Re: Harmonic Drone Noise FIX [moosyw] by leftmid7 . will I be shutting off the Hybrid function of the car which could affect the gas mileage.
Thanks for any help you can give me in this matter.

I've noticed that my gas mileage has decreased around the time the Harmonic Drone noise started. Could this be the cause or could it be something else. Any help someone could give me would be very much appreciated.
