Honda Jazz Mk3 2015 - / Re: Air temperature when heater set to cold

But are you driving a MK3 with the Atkinson cycle 1.3l engine??

My engines 100 bhp is plenty powerful enough, have you ever exceeded 4,000 revs? The engine produces its max power at 5,000 rpm. The aircon uses about 2 bhp, less than the alternator. As said above the aircon shuts off at full throttle.

The simplest way is to have the reminder system turned off and have the car serviced every 12 months or 12,500 miles whichever is the soonest.
This is a dealer job and some don't like doing it as they see it as a possible loss of income.
It's your car so it's your decision.
The dealer I have always used turns the reminder system off as a matter of course and it does not invalidate the warranty.

I do when needed but that engine does not have the power to spare to run air con.
This is definitely not the case. I have owned five Jazz's all with aircon. When the compressor cuts in there is no surge as can be felt in some cars and the effect on fuel consumption is neglible, if the engine couldn't manage to run the aircon that wouldn't be so.

Time to say goodbye. Even though I do not post on a regular basis, I read and check over the forum most days.
I have part exchanged my Jazz Si for a new (to me) car. I have bought a Nissan Qashqai in search of a more comfy ride and a higher driving position and easier access for my wife. I will miss all the good points of the 3 jazzes I have had but it's time to go.

here is something I never knew before:

Most cars manufactured after 2000 have a relay that shuts off air conditioning at WOT (wide open throttle)) to ensure ample power for the engine under hard acceleration.

As to why the cold end is getting hot I cant explain that but as soon as the pump/compressor starts the air cools down instantly.
The air con was not that efficient in the summer compared to my previous cars so perhaps it need recharging???

So why don't you use the aircon?  And can you explain how you get a build up of heat  at the cooling end of a refrigeration system? The hot bit of it is the condenser in front of the cars radiator.

Hi, the only reason I got Honda to do the service was because of my extended guarantee t&c's - it states I must have the car serviced at a main dealers for the warranty to remain valid.

I called them up and asked about it and they were clueless at first and had to go off and find out about it... They called me back saying that the computer is telling me it requires another component changing in 140 days time - I asked what this component was and they didn't know... I told him it says in the manual that item 3 is the gearbox oil and he said he would have to double check? Honda dealers charge double the price of local garages and for this I expect them to know what they are trying to sell you!!!

He went on to say that whatever item it is, it can wait until the next service... funny how this assumption can be made given that he doesn't even known what the item is? and that it's ok to run it for another 6 months...

I have asked him if this system can be switched over to a standard 12 month reminder instead of ad-hoc component reminders as this seems ludicrous - the car has already been to Honda 9 times in 7 months!
