From underneath the car, you may be able to get access to the starter motor. It is then possible to connect jump leads from a charged battery to the car by connecting the positive lead to the the large connector on the starter motor and the negative lead to a suitable place on the engine. Once you have power, you may be able to open the car as usual.

The rubbing sound is likely a seized brake caliper. It is highly likely that the cheapest option will be to have the caliper replaced. If the car decelerates quickly, like you say, then it is not safe to drive. The brake and surrounding components will be getting hot. This could lead to a seized bearing and possible sudden failure. The heat buildup ...

You may have a bad stator As @paulster2 stated, you should have your battery tested. You could have a lead plate the broke free inside the batter and grounding out that cel to another cel. Your voltage test could be an indicator that it is not your battery though. Here is a method you can use to test your stator. Testing Your Stator There are three ...

They are typically on the same fuse. Charging outlet should be listed as a cigarette lighter.

Yes, your parking brake has a return spring. You should be able to goto a local auto parts store to get that and the arm replaced. I also recommend you find another mechanic as most of this information is available on the Internet. Hope this helpful.

Reseal the pump inlet fitting. It lets air in here but will leak very little or no fluid out. It is a short plastic fitting with an o-ring seal on the pump end. In the unlikely case that this does not resolve the symptom, next replace the inlet hose. If it is still doing it after that then reseal the pump. Honda sells all the parts to reseal the pump; the ...

I did some research regarding your symptoms. Mind you I was a Honda MC mechanic and have NEVER worked on a hybrid. But since this space is blank I'll fill it with what I discovered. All of the posts I could find point to your main battery having an issue. Is that the battery you had checked at the auto parts store? I would look at the connections to the ...

A common way to run cabling from the back of the car to the front is tucking it under the floor carpet near an edge, where passengers' feet don't frequently stomp. For example you could route it along an edge next to the door, then through the B-pillar or A-pillar, around the windshield and to the rear view mirror.

Is this only a cosmetic problem, or is it more serious? (For instance, is it likely to lead to rusting of the sheet metal, or any structural problem?) Currently it appears to be a cosmetic issue. Untreated, exposed to the elements, it will eventually create a greater perimeter around your vehicle and rust will occur. Others may not agree with me but I ...

You have another issue The battery doesn't sound like to the core issue that you are experiencing. I propose that your stator or rectifier have gone bad thus you are experiencing a situation where you have to have your battery serviced. The motorcycle should be 'servicing your battery' and charging it as you ride the motorcycle. You will want to test ...

I run an enormous race radiator with high flow spal fans, an oil cooler and an oil cooler fan and it keeps the coolant and oil at exactly 180-185F around town or on the highway, regardless of ambient temperature, even if I run the fans unnecessarily. Why doesn't it overcool? Thermostats. It 100 percent doesn't matter how much radiator you run so long as ...

Your problem seems to be with the battery. It probably has a relatively dead cell in it. Old school would say it has a "surface charge" in it, where the cell will transmit enough voltage to get the motor started sometimes. When the charge isn't present on the dead cell, there's nothing to start the motor. Over a short period of time, the surface charge will ...

You should list the body style, things can be different depending on body style. On some Hondas there will be a brake light failure sensor somewhere in the back of the car either in the trunk or behind a light. Looking at a wiring diagram there seems to be one behind the left tail light on your Accord. With the fuse installed test for power on the ...

It sounds like your starter solenoid is bad. You starter solenoid has two pieces to it. The signal it takes from your ignition switch triggers a magnet the turns another switch when the magnet is activated it closes another circuit for your starter. This gives your starter current from the battery to turn over your engine. If I get what your saying, ...

The two things you mentioned will help keep your leather looking good for a long time. I had leather seats and never did any maintenance and they began to dry and crack after several years. So the leather moisturizer is a very good idea.You can get several flavors of this from auto parts places. I have no data on which ones are better. Without this you will ...

Ask the dealer if the radio is programmable and if service bulletin 10-081 applies to this model. That is the only thing that has not been tried that I can think of. The serial number is usually on the units label. The unit must be removed to read it. It can be used to obtain the security code, in case the code was incorrect. I have had these radios take a ...

Here's the owners manual from the Honda Power Equipment website It doesn't have what your looking for But, if you look on page 51 it shows how to remove fascia related to the front cover. You will notice you are looking at the side of the gas tank beneath the top cover. a bunch of assumption I could be wrong. I do have a lot of experience with the 80's ...

Have you looked at the lights to make sure the filament is still good? It is feasible you lost both headlights at nearly the same time. It's also possible, you didn't notice one of them had gone out (you mentioned they were dim ... a single bulb would have looked like dim bulbs) before the second one went out. Look for black spots on the bulb. Also, don't ...

According to TireRack.com, your standard tire size is 195/65/15. This tire has a rotation per mile (RPM) of 832. The Michelin tire has an RPM of 836. This is only a difference of ~.5%, which is not a big deal. Using the two different tire sizes shouldn't cause you any issues. The major concerns here is to keep the same size tires on the same axle (front or ...

Issue got resolved in next service. The problem was the with the rotor. Front wheel rotor was touching the caliber causing too much resistance. On close observation it seemed that rotor its shape after a bike fall lately. Replaced it with a flat new rotor and was able to drive 420 kms in full tank.

While you are at the dealership, invest in an Owner's Manual. It will outline all the things needed to be done to store it for winter or inclement weather times as well as removing it from storage. The other thing to invest in is a battery tender. It will prolong the life of your battery and save you money in the long run. The only other thing that has ...
