It sounds to me like it was just worn out. You should be able to turn the alternator and a/c compressor pulleys by hand. I'd replace the tensioner if it hasn't been done already anyway, and with a new tensioner, fitting a new belt should be fairly easy* as you can fit it with the tensioner un-tensioned. However, if the auxiliary belt hasn't been changed ...

Yes, you can replace the bulbs, but it's not the easiest thing to do. You need to have patience and a soldering iron. Many people take this time to replace the bulbs with LED bulbs, in a color of their choice. It's also recommended that you replace all of the bulbs at the same time to alleviate having to tear it all apart again in the near future for the ...

It's quite possible it just broke due to age and wear. I have personally experienced that when the belt wasn't replaced on schedule. If you were in the vehicle when it broke the belt, I'd be surprised if you wouldn't have heard loud unpleasant noises or felt something if it broke due to something seizing up. If it just broke, all you would have noticed ...

Definitely sounds like immobilizer system. The r/s interface handles that and apparently does so successfully. So we know the immobilizer system in the car works if supplied the correct information. These seem like the likeliest possibilities to me: Keys somehow got dumped from programming, not a common issue with Hondas and not something that occurs ...

A likely cause is a rodent nesting in the ventilation system. They may be chewing up carpet or sound deadening material. It may also be the foam that seals the ductwork sections breaking down. The material may be breaking down due to age or heat if you live in a warm climate. When the fan is turned on the air movement is blowing the pieces out the vents.

Without any other symptoms or issues, I would assume you just ran over something that your tire threw into the body of your car. Like a piece of a re-tread tire. Look under the hood for anything that looks out of place and check under the car for any fluid that might be leaking. If you don't find anything just keep driving and pay attention for anything ...

I have a 2006 Honda Civic EX and experienced the same issue under similar circumstances and have since solved the issue: 1) Cold weather 2) Car was recently jump started 3) Receiving flashing green key indicator 4) Car starts then shuts off 5) Battery problems I went outside one cold winter morning and the car was dead. Click click click. A friend of ...

I would imagine that something is just rattling.. I say this because if it was an issue of possibly a pulley or a wheel bearing or anything at all for that matter. Then the noise would be more consistent. It isn't too often where you have a vehicle that only has an issue in that tight of a situation. mostly when traveling steady at 35, 40 or 45 miles per ...

Wheel bearing was my first thought but it should get louder at higher speeds and remain during accel and decel. possibly some issue with the torque converter not locking or slipping at certain speeds? Does it only happen in the highest gear of the transmission? the turning at low speed leads me to think power steering pump. The sound should change with ...
