I don't know that particular make of car, but in the UK "standard size" radios are often held in the dash by a spring-clip device, not by screws. You need a pair of extractor tools like this: http://www.halfords.com/technology/car-audio/stereo-fitting-accessories/autoleads-car-audio-release-tool-pc5-83. Some cars require special tools for that particular ...
Not difficult really, if you're handy with a screw driver. Hondas are usually pretty easy to pull the dash apart on, and this guide will help you with that. Then, it's just a case of installing your new stereo. Most "good" brands (like Alpine and so forth) will have adaptor plugs that can make it easy to go from your cars original stereo plug to the new ...
As @FredWilson pointed out, there is no relearn for a heater circuit code. On a 2.3 Check for power at the ECM connector C pin 13 (white). On a 3.0 Check for power at the ECM connector C pin 1 (black/white). While the o2 heater wire may have power there may be a break in the wire that goes to the ECM. This wire tells the ECM that the heater relay is ...
You do not have to remove the battery you may remove the driver side wheel well housing and access it from there
The spec for a 2009 Honda Accord is plain old oil; no specific need for synthetic. As long as you get your oil changed regularly, it won't be breaking down to the point where the difference is measurable (except in your wallet). You won't have any problems switching between synthetic and non-synthetic.
No, you can go back to regular oil next oil change. Its only bad to go back to non-synthetic if the car has been on a steady diet of Synthetic for a long time or is designed to use synthetic oil.
This is assuming you don't have access to a scantool that can communicate with a Honda ECM and without bidirectional controls. Key On Engine Running (this may work Key On Engine off) disconnect the Air Fuel Ratio sensor connector. On the harness side connector Check for power on pin 4 (white). Check for ground on pin 3 (white/black). If you don't have ...
P1166 indicates a blown or malfunctioning heater core fuse. I know that O2 sensors have resistive elements inside that are activated when the engine is cold. O2 sensors operate more efficiently when they are hot. The heater element is on until the engine is at normal operating temp then it switched off. P1167 is the upstream O2 sensor just before the cat. ...
These Honda transmissions are prone to failure. Which is unfortunate. I have the same car and the transmission failed at about 130,000 miles. You can check the transmission fluid. With the engine off and the car on a level surface remove the transmission dipstick, clean and put it back in and then pull it out. Now you should see the level at the upper mark. ...
