Honda Jazz Mk3 2015 - / Re: Stupid question on "S" mode on Mk3 VT
« Last post by Johncb500 on July 16, 2018, 09:46:33 PM »
I advise if you're in a hurry.use S mode.the gearbox will change up at 6,500 .so you leave that.but braking hard.use the flappy paddle to drop 3.4 or 5 gears
It's great fun.And the Jazz is very quick like this

This may have been mentioned in the this thread but if it hasnt then it might be of interest.

If you are in S mode and use the paddle shifters the car will go into manual shift and an M will appear on the display. If you want to get back to auto/cvt mode you just hold the + paddle shifter for a few seconds and the M will disappear from the display and you are back in auto mode.

Read it in the manual and tried it whilst testing S mode frequently recently.

A fat middle aged woman, on her way to "Curves" the local fitness centre, had 30 yards of space to park in, but pulled right up to the junction to park, to save her walking that little distance extra. Seems she had a fat head, not just a fat @rse.
Rant over.

I have seen that on our local shopping centre Gym,  members try to park right outside the door,  they could save themselves gym membership if they walked a bit more and took stairs instead of lift (and ate less,  but lets not go there).  People go to gyms for more than exercise though,  they go to perve and for the company sometimes,  I doubt many gym goers carry on much after mid February and gyms are more than happy to welcome in the 'new years resolution' members as easy money.

Being a 2003 it will be an i-DSI which has 8 spark plugs. Chances are the rear set of 4 have never been changed in ages. Many mechanics have no idea that they are there.

My first check would be to ensure that all 4 cylinders are firing? It quite possible that a cylinder could misfire at tickover, but is OK when revved.

So it's human nature that special-purpose parking spaces will always be misused ? But yet we're expected to believe that public charging of EVs is a viable way forward for folks without the possibility of  charging at home ? Bit of an inconsistency there.

Honda Jazz Mk2 2008-2015 / Re: strange thing happened to air con ..any idea

first of all thank you culzean  for getting back to me ..my car has only done 8k mls  from new & an old bloke had it before me so guessing he didn't use the A/C much. .checked the cabin filter and its like new .checked fuses all fine ? ..took it out today did about 50mls with A/C on all the time & it was fine ???

Seems a bit counter-intuitive that low gas can cause the system to frost up, it messes around with the gas pressures in the system and if not enough gas the gas is a lower pressure and this causes it to expand too soon,  and it expands in the low pressure pipe leading to the condenser and not the condenser itself.   I have seen this on fridges and freezers before now as well.

A blown fuse would stop it working,  though not sure how it would cause it to freeze up  :-X
