Honda Jazz Mk3 2015 - / Re: New facelifted model user manual download?

Thanks, Yes I have found one for the Fit, read some things in it then found out they do not apply to UK model, which is why I was looking for a UK specific one.

Thanks also for the cruise/limiter/intelligent limiter info, I was hoping it would be easy to toggle between them.

I am reluctant to ask dealer too many questions because up to now they do not seem that well informed. When I take the plunge I am sure I will find out a lot of things I don't even know about yet.

Yeah, that's similar to the one I have. I haven't actually left it running all day and night. It's on a timer so runs from 6am to 8am and 1500 to 2200. Since the house is empty most weekdays there didn't seem any need to have it run 24/7. It definitely helps clothes dry quickly - even more than it used to. Clearly having reduced the RH it now sucks water out of wet clothes far faster.

And, yes, it's supposed to reduce heating costs by removing water (which takes energy to heat it) and releasing the energy from extracted water back into the room. I haven't decided yet whether I'll run it through summer.

I had it once when someone entering a roundabout forgot they had a trailer. I allowed for that and stopped just fine (with some foul language) but when the trailer was half way across my front I put my foot down knowing it'd be clear before I reached it. The car disagreed and slammed the brakes on almost immediately, along with lots of beeping and flashing on the dash.

Sadly not. In over two years of ownership I've only actually hit 'Change Language' once but this morning for instance I had to stab at the screen several times before my fingers found 'Ok'. Which given its size and my familiarity with touch technology is pretty depressing :(

It's not much better with the climate control 'buttons' :(

Stupid Honda.

I keep hitting the Change language prompt on the initial startup instead of the "OK".

Is their any way to move this back into the System Menus?

I don't really understand why this function is available all the time as its something you only want to do once.

Honda Jazz Mk2 2008-2015 / Re: Horn Relay Location
« Last post by auntyneddy on April 19, 2018, 03:59:28 PM »
Looking at the online manual, the position of the relay is ambiguous it does not appear to be in the underdash fuse box. It is shown somewhere inside the car.
Have you checked the fuse or the  horns? They are behind the Honda badge on the grill and I had to replace mine. They are subject to all sorts of crap from the road. It might just be a broken/corroded wire

I think while on the face of it the deal is a good one, ensure that the dealer tells you exactly what you are entitled to. I bought a 4 yr old Jazz with a 2 yr extension to the warranty. Although the brakes were rectified they claimed it was good will when my argument was they should have been right prior to sale.
Also rust appeared within 3 mths and their answer was you can buy  a touch up pen.
You are starting with  a new vehicle BUT Honda give a 3 yr warranty anyway, so it appears you are being charged twice. My deal did include AA and free MOT's while the vehicle was serviced by them.
So make sure you know what they are including etc. It's too late after the event. So dealers are  by all account excellent others iffey.
Unfortunately we a can offer allsorts of advice and quote experiences but you are the person that is parting with the cash.

As Tesla never meet their goals and divert attention for the persistent failures  by issuing press releases, I would take ANYTHING Tesla announce announce after a another high profile failure as bull excrement to divert attention.. (it seems to work)

Last time is was an electric lorry..etc..

My experience of the Service Plan was oil changed, filters changed and when I took over at end of 5 years and started DIY, the pollen filter was new.
Holdcroft of Stoke on Trent deserve top marks - very good service..

Honda Jazz Mk3 2015 - / Mk3 Auto stop/anti collision feature
« Last post by donerkebab on April 19, 2018, 02:54:49 PM »
Not saying a good idea but was testing this feature out after it cut in after someone didn't move into roundabout even though fully clear.  :o

It seems very inconsistent to me - so above 3 -10 MPH then 2-3 meters in front to activate. Testing with my garage door  :-\ I get it kicking it 3 meters out but need to above 5MPH yet that roundabout situation don't think the car in front was more than 2 meters in front when it kicked in.
