Honda Jazz Mk2 2008-2015 / Re: Air Con problem
« Last post by enandrews on Today at 07:45:51 PM »
99% of Honda aircon problems caused by failed relay ( which if it fails closed can also flatten the battery in a few hours, there was a service bulletin from Honda on Civic aircon relay a few years ago - if it fails to close then compressor will not run ) - other causes are low gas, and damaged condenser ( caused by the useless lower grille in Honda bumpers, with holes big enough for a blackbird to fly through ), the hole in the condensor will obviously cause low gas.   I hate shonky garages who just replace big expensive lumps because they lack the skills to diagnose the failure of a £20 item.   The likelyhood of failed compressor and relay at the same time is very remote,  the failed relay stops the operation of the magnetic clutch that connects compressor to main belt drive operating which obviously stops the compressor performing any compression. Personally  would be wanting some money refunded.... I hope they returned you old ( but working ) compressor to you.

So my 2010 Jazz/Fit aircon internal fan stopped working and I could not understand why as I started getting really hot in the car (summer here in RSA). Later yesterday I drove the car and all was working 100%.

Today I tried to open the car and the battery was down to 0.8V after i manually opened the car and hood. The Car off was pulling 3.01A. I was going to buy a new battery and then decided to jump start the car and all was fine till I heard a hissing and saw a white mist on the left of the engine bay.

I removed the 7.5A fused labled 43 or 47 and now the standing draw is 0.2A

I hope I can get to the bottom of this with replacing the Relay.

Great post above as I almost just bought a new battery when there was major drain on it.

Thx

Finaly Jazz, after 4,5 years looking around

It's continuously variable in that the engine speed isn't a fixed proportion of the road speed (except when in the direct drive mode). However, I agree that the e-CVT description is misleading and is bad marketing as it has put off some people who have had negative experiences with real CVT transmissions.

Yeah split screen works for me too using S21 Ultra.

If the hybrid drive train results from Hondas F1 knowledge then I suspect the control of the HV battery is very sophisticated and doing lots of things . I would imagine the controls ensure s the HV battery sees 10 or 1 bar  at some described point based maybe on optimising the battery life. If you accelerate with  an enthusiastic foot from several roundabouts (as on the A43 past silverstone ) the HV battery can show 3 bars or 9 , and has nothing to do with giving it the beans !! I expect the PCM figures load and battery temperature maybe driving style as well based on accelerator position / brake use . It must figure the actual cycle use of the HV battery and add itís own conditioning cycle into the mix ? My last long (500 miles return ) journey in summer with 30 C heat and climate control on auto 19C all the time gave 73 mpg on A1 M11 M25 M2 to Kent and 71 mpg on the return leg .. figure that Ö.??  😆😆😆. Outside of our group of users this level of tech isnít appreciated !

Are we 100% sure the parking brake causes voltage loss ?

I know the 2 red lights, dash and button do go out after a few minutes.
I'm not 100% sure but often with this type of switch where it's switched momentarily there is a circuit monitoring the switch to see if any action needs to be taken, it's not a simple switch like the light in a house for example where there are just two positions and the current is either on or off.

The courtesy light is another example of this if left on standby, it's continually monitoring the door to see if it's been opened, only a very small current involved but if it's left for weeks it can mount up.

I know that driving through France on the Autoroutes in particular but also a lot of minor roads I can have the music volume turned down several notches and can still hear perfectly well (both the music and passengers voices).  Cross the channel, up the M20 and volume goes up and up and still hard to hear.  Our roads are terrible in the UK. professional cyclists always refer to our roads as 'heavy' and that's before this years potholes have added to the cacophony!

Personally, I no longer worry about the issue - the car drives nicely and still returns a better mpg than my previous Mini Cooper Diesel. I also take some solace from Scotty Kilmer saying on his YouTube channel that the start-stop function isn't necessarily a good thing anyway in terms of additional wear & tear on the engine from constant stopping and starting.

I will in the near future get me a MK III Sport/Dynamic manual. The first thing I will do is disable the dang start/stop pure shite..
You can do it by have a diagnostic tool (need the original diagnostic stuff or very friendly Honda staff), Google it for different approaches or just go blunt and hardwire the VSA etc switch.

But disabled it will...

I never play music loud, in the  car or at home , and dont feel the need for highest sound quality in the car.  I think after a few years   some  have to have it increasingly loud to overcome their self inflicted hearing loss.
Some might benefit from Bone conduction earphones. Anyone ever used them?

I never really noticed how much soundwaves affect you  until   sitting in traffic in silent EV mode.  Not just my own modest music levels,  but from the  sound systems and engine vibrations of  nearby vehicles.    But I suppose  when you sit somewhere peaceful you can hear the  leaves falling.  And dont get me started on tweeting birds and grasshoppers  >:(
