Honda Jazz Mk1 2002-2008 / the mystery of the Engine light
« Last post by fashionphotography on Today at 04:09:56 PM »
strange thing happened saturday .. had to do a 4 hour round trip to Oxfordshire and back to the west midlands.. as we all know it was damn hot.. had a trip to a nice pub by the thames for some grub. but when we left following our son inlaws honda civic 4 years old lol.. the trusty ol jazz had a sudden loss of oooomph . only slightly when accelerating from 3rd etc. anyway i then noticed the damn engine light had popped up glaring me in the face from the dash grrrr.. although the car seemed to run fine apart from a slight sluggish acceleration.. as my cat was stolen a couple of months back i put it down to maybe a cheapo aftermarket lamba sensor packing up.. anyway drove back to shropshire ok even on the motorway.. light was still on yesterday.. this morning refilled her up for the week ahead . as soon as we pulled out the garage i noticed the engine light had gone out.. ? been fine ever since .. freaky ?

I saving energy by not using regenerative braking if i can coast instead[/quote]

How do you coast in an automatic?  Coasting implies holding the clutch in or being in neutral.

I will ask

When we were part of teh EU, we paid a fee part of which covered the costs of testing and setting up specifications and new laws for products.And we had minimal trade inspections for EU goods.

Now we have had Brexit: we have to fund all those ourselves and up spend on Border policing. Now any half sensible leader would have planned for that. Apparently not. See the mess at ports and airports. No plans etc.- some partially Covid.

And the right wingers complain Government spending is increasing.As the population grows older and we have to provide more inspectors, and increase in State spending is inevitable. But Ms Truss will reduce numbers...

I agree.

My while-you-wait service usually takes 3 or 4 hours so another 3 or 4 wouldn't be viable for me.

I'll wait for a call and have another bus ride somewhere.
Depends to what extent they can do both procedures at the same time.The recall  upgrade might take 3 hours if thats all you come in for,  but they  might be able to do the service oily bits  while its updating.

On the MK3, the lighter socket is to the right of the console,  therefore I used 2 of the adhesive clips to secure the looped cable to the top of the underside then around the left until it gets to the glove box area.  The excess cable was wound up,  secured with wire wrap and popped behind the back of the console. Just been out for a drive,  no unexpected dash alerts and the camera appeared to make the right start up noise.
It's not a massive job, to me,  the worst bit is the transition from the corner of the roof over the plastic pillar trim. The rubber door seal trim can be a bit of a fiddle too but all in,  wit a bit of chin rubbing it was probably an hour of humming and ahhring.
I did my CRV a few years ago which was easier to the lack of windscreen plastic and access to the fuse box being straightforward for a hardwire kit which wasn't the same this time,  hence the pug in cable.
Also, it doesn't seem to be rattling anywhere at the moment.

Please explain how I identify the build date from the VIN?

...10th letter shows model year

This link gives a lot more info...although it is an American Honda site

D or B.  Lift off early, loose speed gradually with mild regeneration over a greater distance
This is simply not an option in busy urban traffic if you don't want to annoy your fellow road users.
You'd love following me  :D

I've eventually got round to fitting mine into our MK3 but not took the car out to test the angle and filter set up as yet. Decided to take the easy route to plug it into the cigarette lighter socket as I believe access to the fuse box is a bit of a faff and I'm too old and fat to struggle...
It does seem to be a well received make and model.

I've watched videos of people installing dashcams and it's too mentally and physically taxing for me. Right up there with mountain climbing and brain surgery. How did you get on with plugging into the lighter socket? Is there a lot of trailing wiring?
