I treated myself to a new satnav, a garmin drive smart 61. and the camera kit BC-30. It has a facility to have a rear view camera connected wireless so no need to run cables from back to the front of the car. power is taken direct from the reversing light and video is transmitted direct to the 6.9inch sat nav screen as soon as you select reverse.



The beauty of this system is you can use your satnav in any car, and also fit another camera to another car you may own or van. the reversing lines are fully adjustable in width and length so adjustable for any size car or van.

Installation of the camera in the jazz Si was the tricky part, I chose to mount the camera under the rear screen brake light, which sits inside the car at the top of the rear screen. reason is a greater view and you can adjust camera angle to suit your preferred view.





The transmitter is located here and behind the drivers side rear light cluster is where you connect to the reversing light +12v and connect the transmitter to the camera cable. the 12v+ positive feed from the reversing light is the green + silver dotted wire. there is also an earth tag right behind the rear light cluster to connect the negative wire. feeding the cable through behind the rear brake light at the top of the rear screen, you have to remove the rubber boot which feeds the cables into the body, feed the camera cable through behind rear brake light to the rubber boot, through the rubber boot and down behind the rear light cluster, removing the rear light cluster makes installation much easier. connect the camera to the transmitter. once all connections are made you then select reverse gear and the camera powers on in under a second and you have a nice rear view of behind your car.

Honda Jazz Mk3 2015 - / Re: Idle stop, on or off?

I have found another reason to disable the stop start. During the recent mini heat wave when the car registered an external temperature of 34C on four consecutive days and I was using the car a lot, it keeps the aircon working.

I have discovered this as well.

With all the situations that Honda have found to automatically disable idle stop, they might have included this one. Mine works like Deeps's not ColinS's.

BTW, I vaguely remember a comment earlier that idle stop/start was noticeable and unpleasant for occupants. We really don't find this at all, just barely noticeable, unlike in my brother in laws Audi A6 diesel, where the auto stop/start is very obtrusive.

That is very strange.  Mine actually displays A/C as a reason for it not activating.  My model has "climate control", perhaps that is the difference.

If turning off my stop start is not effecting my fuel consumption how can it be effecting the cars emissions?

Your car burns fuel when idling and stop start is disabled therefore it will burn some be it miniscule amount of fuel and contribute to CO2 emissions into the atmosphere. Maybe not harmful if it is just one car but take into account all the millions of cars on the road then it becomes a much bigger issue. And if the manufacturers didn't include stop start on Cars then your road tax would be higher depending on which band of tax your car falls into. Would you rather pay more car tax! Like I said I don't find the Jazz stop start to be any problem at all but each to their own!

I think also the benefit of idle stop is localised in urban high traffic density areas, rather than global.

Ooops just realised I have just replied to an old post ::)

The system is designed so that if the cabin temperature is high and requires aircon to cool it, then the engine will not stop.  At least that is how mine worked during the hot weather.

Honda Jazz Mk1 2002-2008 / Hot ignition key

Hi guys, its a strange one.  My car is offroad for the next few weeks so I have been starting it up and running it for 5-10 mins.  Today when I did it I took the key out and it was hot to the touch.  Any ideas what this could be?

Thanks, Phil

Genuinely confuses me that some garages get away not changing the rear plugs.

I know it's laziness, but it really isn't any extra effort, and I don't have a fully equipped garage!

Think a lot of garages may not even know that its a twin plug engine,  they find the front four and think that is it.

Jazz doesn't have a rear anti roll bar as far as I am aware. Here is the parts schematic.
