Honda Jazz Mk1 2002-2008 / Re: Battery quick start
« Last post by John A on Today at 06:49:52 AM »
I've got one of these: https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/DBPOWER-300A-8000mAh-Portable-Mini-Car-Jump-Starter-Emergency-Battery-yellow/223221440386?hash=item33f908df82:g:k1IAAOSwpblbvgBt:rk:1:pf:0

One of the points I like about it is that it uses a normal micro USB to charge it, not a specialised lead. My girlfriend has it as she keeps on leaving the lights on in her 1.6 Audi. Starts the engine every time when the cars battery won't.

The battery is fine. I've left the lights on twice and ran it down. I know I'm an idiot etc etc, but, instead of calling out the AA if it happens again, I'm looking to get a charger, so, any recommendatins on this?

Honda Jazz Mk1 2002-2008 / Re: Boot won't Unlock After Someone Ran Into Back

Ah OK, thanks for replying. " plastic flap above number plate " I did read about that but my Honda Jazz doesn't have a plastic flap above the number plate, to fix or adjust. I remember looking for the flap but couldn't see one. However I'll double check in the morning light. My Jazz has 150,000 on the clock and is still going like a tank:) Last mot a month or so ago no problems at all...... only one thing..... the ABS light not showing, as you probably know, the regs have tightened up, so had to have the module repaired and another mot...... almost 500.
Cheers

Sharon.
 You would be better advised, to purchase a new, battery......

+1

Your battery normally gives plenty of warning of failure you ignore the signs at your peril.....

Make sure negative connections from battety to bodywork and bodywork to engine are tight and not corroded...

The problem with tailgate not unlocking happens to Jazz anyway, whether you have had a shunt or not.

https://clubjazz.org/forum/index.php?topic=9196.msg48906#msg48906

Basic message is that the plastic flap above number plate that you pull to open tailgate can get rusted into its bracket and the spring is not strong enough to pull flap back to its fully forward position that it needs to be in for solenoid to work to unlock and lock properly.  You will need to squirt some lubricant on hinge bracket each side of flap where the hinges are and give the flap a good working to free it up, then push flap fully forward towards tailgate and lock and unlock the doors, the flap mechanism will only engage with lock when it is fully forward ( the spring is supposed to push it to that position when you release it, it is its 'home' position ).

Honda Jazz Mk1 2002-2008 / Boot won't Unlock After Someone Ran Into Back
« Last post by zeusmc on December 18, 2018, 07:54:12 PM »
I have a 2004 car, last year a woman behind me, when we were stationary, mixed up her clutch and accelerator and  ran into the back of the car. She admitted immediately that it was her fault and was all sorted out. Car has been written off, because cheaper than having dents taken out of boot. Anyway since then  ( a gradual process ) I have often have had to shut the boot quite firmly to get it to stay shut, almost sometimes slamming it shut.

Now the boot won't open, all the other doors open and unlock with the key fob. I've had a look in the manual and have an idea of what might be wrong. That said I'd like the advice of anyone who has  experienced this themselves and how they solved the problem?
Cheers.

Hi, for my sins, I live out in the hills and have had to get the AA out a couple of times to start my car due to dodgy battery. To get a quicker fix in futire, can anyone recommend a charger that I can purchase? Maybe even one that doesnt need plugging in? (Power bank thing)

4.5amp,6amp, 8amp, I'm just not sure what I need really.

Much appreciated, and hope everyone has a great Christmas.  ;D ;D

Honda Jazz Mk1 2002-2008 / Re: labour time for replacing spark plugs and 4 coils
« Last post by MicktheMonster on December 18, 2018, 04:49:55 PM »
I have to agree, after having servicing and repairs done by garages for 20 odd years I decided to give it a go this year myself, apart from the savings ( about 80 percent) I really enjoyed it, was gutted when I'd fixed and serviced everything I could think of, could do with a scrap car just to fiddle with! Seriously though, took me about an hour too, back ones are fiddly but easily do-able , you have to remove the coils to get to the plugs, so again, very easy, plugs cost 16 for 8 on eBay.
