Honda Jazz Mk4 2020 - / 12 V battery warning light
« Last post by Lincolnshire Rambler on February 28, 2024, 07:27:29 PM »
So today the Jazz illuminated its 12V battery warning symbol just after powering up and starting the engine . It came on and Bong sounded ! Booked in tomorrow at Honda to have it checked out . No other issue and all 12 v powered stuff lights wipers etc as normal . Car was parked overnight and been in use everyday for quite a few weeks so not be left unused . See what the garage concludes !

Just in case of confusion it's baking soda  and not washing soda that should help with smelly items.

Best to avoid cheapo batteries and stick to the main brands or supermarkets own.  I put a cheap one in the fob last year and it didn't even last 3 months, whereas the original battery lasted in excess of 2 years.  My quality replacement is still going strong after 9 months and I expect it to last a lot longer.

I had a similar problem when my Mk3 Jazz was indicating low battery in the key fob after a ridiculously short time like a couple of months after putting in a new battery.  I tested the supposedly exhausted battery and it was good, round about 3V.  I cleaned the contacts in the battery compartment with a cotton bud dipped in isopropyl alcohol, although I couldn't really see any corrosion or dirt.  I put the old battery back in, the low battery message went away and the key fob now seems to be using batteries at a normal rate.

As my rely to Marco i did check for dirt but i can try the alcohol thanks.

Did you check for corrosion on the metal parts where the battery is inserted? It might be that moisture caused some corrosion and that can prevent the battery from functioning optimally.


Hi Marco 1979  Yes i checked the battery and wiped the contacts but they were shiny and bright.

Sounds as if youíre coming round to continuing with the car and hoping itíll get better.

However, just in case youíre sufficiently motivated to take this further, this is a handy guide to your rights:
https://www.which.co.uk/consumer-rights/advice/the-car-i-bought-has-a-problem-what-are-my-rights-aAnMC5b0ZzJb

For example, within the 30 days you have a RIGHT to reject for a full refund: the dealer canít simply say theyíre not going to play, that would not be legal. But you do need to prove thereís a fault (the dealerís original acknowledgement of an issue and subsequent actions would be a point in your favour) but, if he disagrees, thatís where you need to get the independent report to back you up.

After the 30 days you still have rights; you lose the right to reject but can still require the dealer to repair or replace, and if he canít or wonít then you should ask for a refund (heís entitled to deduct depreciation). Again having the independent report would be essential.

Itís not clear whether youíre the only person who can detect this. If it is, then you having a sensitive nose might be a significant factor. But you said your original dealer arranged two valet cleanings, and the second one suggested a fluid leak, so that suggests they could smell it as well: if so, itís not you, there is something wrong. You shouldnít have to put up with something thatís ďmusty and stomach turningĒ and seems to make it unpleasant to use the car, thatís not what you paid for. If youíre contemplating rejection, your case would be strengthened by getting an independent report to confirm the odour exists and is sufficiently unpleasant as to make it difficult for you to use the car.

It's just me driving it, but others do smell it, I've asked a few people. Musty and stomach turning were others' descriptions. I did purport to reject and return it 10 days ago and the dealer refused the return, it got pretty heated.  The dealer sat me in another of their new Hondas and it had a similar smell profile, which reassured me that it could be coming off the upholstery rather than due to a mechanical issue.  The dealer shifted from initially acknowledging the issue and valeting, checking door seals, filters, taking us for a test drive to check the AC, to becoming adamant it's "new car smell" and refusing any further engagement. We had quite a stand off. That's why I know it would take legal action to get a return. I should have asked this highly knowledgeable forum's advice sooner! Now the 30 days are up.
It's definitely not a kipper - thanks for the  ;D
Reading up on what coolant smells like , it's not that I don't think. it's most noticeable when you first open the door/boot and does then ventilate away during the drive. I'll try ventilating , soda crystals and febreze type sprays, to see if that helps tone it down.

Friends of mine in student days had a trick of wiring a kipper to the middle exhaust pipe of cars.  The smell of gradually burning and decomposing kipper over the next few months was appalling..

Aha... so that's how you got your nickname... ;D

Thanks for the answer , I will go ahead and try to do that now. I tried pushing with hand before but no luck.
No luck, the plastic cover where latch of the seat is placed is short. I tried to seat down on the rear seat and raise the plastic latch and push back, but the seat locking in same position :(

 Just found out that there is different latch for Honda jazz, maybe mine did not come with that option, see third photo
