As long as the battery is good (and no indication at this point that it isn't), the issue you have is in there is a grounding issue which is keeping the power from your battery to your starter. This is most likely caused in the wire going from your battery to your starter, your battery to ground, or both. You can do some things to try and see where the ...

To answer your question, there aren't any alignment adjustments possible at the rear of the Honda Fit. Here is the reason why: This picture shows the front and rear suspension on your vehicle. It shows it to be made as a torsion suspension. At the front of the torsion bar are two pivot points which locates the suspension, then there is a spring and and ...

I don't think it's necessarily a wiring problem. Here are my thoughts, having just rebuilt two door lock actuators in one of my vehicles: First - the rear driver side door sounds like the door lock actuator motor is dead. Second - the other issues may or may not be related to the actuators. Can you answer this, do the intermittent problems happen only ...

ok its not a fuel filter if it was a fuel filter it would occur randomly and not after first acceleration of the day as i am sure it does it is your ect or coolant temp sensor. located on top of thermo stat cost is 10 dollars this problem will cause your cat to go bad and will cause you to burn excessive fuel good luck 2 u!

I think using D3 in areas that are signed 40MPH or less eliminates a lot of shift changes between the various higher speeds on your transmission. If the road is signed 40 MPH and under, I always use the D3 button. I also use it if there is ice or snow on the roadway, but the main thing is the wear and tear on a transmission trying to go up a hill or around ...

The Air/Fuel Ratio (A/F) sensor 1 is installed in the exhaust system and detects oxygen content in the exhaust gas. The A/F sensor transmits output voltage to the Engine Control Module (ECM). A heater for the sensor element is embedded in the A/F sensor (sensor 1). If the A/F sensor (sensor 1) voltage is low, the air/fuel ratio is lean, and the ECM uses A/F ...

It sounds like you have something wrong with the starter kill anti-theft functions that reside within the steering wheel lock mechanism. I would suggest taking it to the dealer for this.

Only thing I can think of that could affect the engine itself in this way is the power steering pump. Meaning the starter couldn't turn the engine because the belt can't turn the power steering pump. Check the pump fluid level and the fluid itself. If the steering is not very heavy and the pump doesn't make noise it could be some sort of a hydraulic lock, ...

I've had this problem before and it turned out that the switch in the stalk failed in a way that prevented low beams from working, but not high beams. The relays (as listed by others) would be my first place to look, but if you can get at the stalk connector, it's usually pretty easy to test the switch for proper operation (continuity).

A routine replacement of the starter motor would not cause an increase in fuel consumption or effect its acceleration. You may have an incorrect replacement motor, or defective motor staying engaged and causing the symptoms you described. Otherwise, starter bolts fitted in the wrong position and jamming on the engines ringgear. Connections such as vacuum ...

I have never been able to find any empirical evidence to support the various claims made by different coolant manufacturers. As far as I know, it does not exist. There are no absolutes. You will not necessarily be safe even using coolant with the brand name of your car on it. I have been an auto mechanic for 35+ years. Back in the old days (actually not that ...

I don't know what that specific button does, but I can tell you what similar buttons in other cars do: they retard your throttle response so that your car feels more sluggish. This means that when you step on the gas, it does not cause the throttle to open quite as much, making your drive smoother and more fuel efficient. Conversely, a "sport" button would ...

The ECON button is not a placebo, though the wording from that specific web page is a bit vague. The key is that the ECON button and the Eco-Assist system are two separate things. According to Honda, pressing the ECON button configures your car to improve mileage at the cost of performance. Turning it off will improve power and reduce mileage, which you ...

As discussed in the comments already, the clicking you hear is probably the starter solenoid. You have ruled out a weak battery being the probable cause by attempting to the jump-start the engine. This means either the power cable running directly from the battery to the starter motor is too resistive/poorly connected, or that the starter motor itself is no ...

Although more than one possibility exists, grey sludge could be oil or combustion gases in the coolant. This would be due to a leak in the head gasket. To learn more, you can try observing the coolant expansion tank with the cap off while the engine is running. Be sure to start from a cold engine so you do not overheat the engine, and don't run the engine ...

I dont know but my mothers 99 accord had the same darn thing wrong. i cleaned out her throttle body twice and she runs fine now.. has an internal fuel filter.. so that couldn't be helped.. only thing left for me to do was clean out the throttle body and or replace the egr.. or replace fuel pump.. I went with the throttle body first to avoid spending ...

Upgrading the suspension to that of a heavier bike may not be such a good idea. The rear suspension of the bike would become stiffer and that will not solve your back-ache. A faulty suspension will cause back ache, yes. But in your case you confirmed it with the service center. The reasons for you back pain could be mainly because of the riding position on ...
