Honda Jazz Mk1 2002-2008 / Re: Honda Jazz Se Cvt 2007 ABS problem
« Last post by culzean on Today at 07:58:32 PM »
Hi,
I am new to this forum but not new to the Jazz as I have owned it for 14 years.
I have just repaired a faulty abs pump. Before you spend out any money you can try this, turn the ignition on but don’t start the car. Place a long screw driver on the pump to hear if it’s working, if not disconnect the battery negative lead. Mark the pumps top edge  so you put it back the correct way.There are 2 4mm Allen bolts hholding the pump on, the bottom one you cannot see and is a bit fiddly to access. Pull the motor straight out be gentle do not twist the housing left to right as you may damage the two pins that power the motor, keep the gasket as it needs to go back on when reinstalling. I used a multi meter( I am an electrician) connect to both pins and set the mult meter to the ohms scale if the reading is about 0.7 ohms the windings are still good and the motor may just be stuck. Tap the base of the housing a few times to see if you can release it, spray with silicon spray  or actf50, just not wd40. I Applied applied 12vots to the pumps pins and it worked fine. On reinstallation my sure you the mark that you made is on the top. The pins look the same but it will only go back the correct way. Be gentle pushing the pump motor in as it’s a bit of a faff to locate those pins correctly. Replace the Allen bolts, reconnect the battery. Start car and hopefully your abs light goes off.

welcome, good informative post,  why did you wait so long ? What else have you fixed on your Jazz ?

I just fitted a new aircon clutch to my Civic - a right PITA of a job, ended up taking windscreen washer reservoir and bumper off but at least I learned a lot (not least was how to remove a Civic bumper).  But at least I knew what was wrong and checked it out with ohmeter first that clutch magnetising coil was FUBAR,  but decided to fit a whole new clutch rather than just the coil (coils was £30,  the whole clutch £55) turned out to be a good move as the clutch plate was in bad condition anyway - fitted a new auxiliary belt at same time (another £50) - found out the Civic has a hydraulic / spring belt tensioner that you have to put a spanner and lever away from belt to slacken.

I like messing with cars, sometimes my language gets bad though.

Think I might have a problem then. I did read, but not sure if on this forum, that faulty engine mountings can be an issue on this particular model. Somebody had it done under warranty. Wish I could find the post.
That'll be me. Don't think it's relevant to your problem though, it's a creak or groan when lifting the clutch (manual transmission, not CVT) to move off.
(Since you ask, transmission mount was replaced under warranty last year, problem has recurred this year, dealer has swapped the mount for one from another car known not to have the problem and I'm waiting to see if it recurs.)

Information from https://www.fireservice.co.uk/

Every year in the UK, over 100,000 cars which equates to nearly 300 a day go up in flames and around 100 people die as a result. Around 65% of these fires are started deliberately to cover criminal activity, to make a fraudulent insurance claim or as an act of vandalism.

So that means 35,000 cars catch fire, in the UK, of their own accord.

That Tesla, which I had noted last month, happened to have been driven by a British TV director, and got a mention.
If it had been a Ford Focus, driven by a builder it would have been lucky to have got a mention in the local rag.

Yeah but not many Teslas on the roads in UK,  another more useful stat would be the number of ICE compared with EV per 1000 on the road that catch fire.  A major cause of vehicle fires is bad maintenance (leaking fuel and oil) - and older vehicles more likely than newer ones to suffer,  the oldest Tesla is not really that old yet and they tend to be owned by rich people who get them looked at regularly.  So maybe this is a ticking clock as EV get older and don't get maintained.  The toxic fumes emitted by Li-Ion batteries also mean that fumes from EV batteries can easily kill (that s why it is mandatory for emergency services attending EV fires to wear breathing equipment even in open air - so terrorists park an EV in a crowded place and set fire to it LOL

I had the same kind of noise just as it came to a stop for the first few hundred miles when I got my new jazz just as I was about to take it back to the dealer it went away and is now silent it was definitely the brakes as it was doing it with the start stop on or off

So back on the subject, why can't electric vehicles be fitted with pedals and dynamos so the occupants can do their bit to charge up the battery and keep fit at the same time?
I have always advocated that for running the TV, so if you want to watch, you pedal.

My daily exercise is going up and down the 48 stairs to my flat, 4 or 5 times a day. Add to that another 14 stairs up to the loo (exercise ever increasing as me and my prostrate get older), and I get a fair work out for an old one.

If you are using the brake pedal gently to control the start stop system the CVT will be pushing against the brakes, this very low speed creep against the brakes may cause a split second noise from the brakes as the car stops. You may be able to produce the noise by very slowly easing off the brakes in drive, this may cause the noise as the car starts to move if it is the brakes.

Another thought, if it is the brakes it may be brake temperature dependent. I have just been sent on a short errand by Mrs Sky, I know my brakes were warm and I had no sound from them. I think I have heard this brief creaking or groaning sound when my brakes have been cold.
