Honda Jazz Mk3 2015 - / Re: Tyre Pressure warnings....danger of crying wolf too often
« Last post by mikebore on January 17, 2019, 09:37:19 AM »
I have only had one calibration failure over two cars and the car tells you if the calibration has failed. If I remember correctly.

I think you only know that calibration has failed because the "Check Tyre Pressure" warning pops up within 30 mins or so of initialisation, as my three recent failed attempts to calibrate the combo of worn and new tyre on same axle confirm. There is no specific message like "Calibration Failed".

I now have two new Goodyears on the front and have initialised and hopefully calibrated (done 30 minutes 25-62mph) successfully. However I am fully expecting further warnings as these two new tyres bed in, or maybe because there are still two 37,000 mile tyres on the rear.

Looking back at my records I see the two false warnings I had on my car when it was new occurred around 3800 miles, after which the system settled down (and only gave genuine warnings after that, until this week with mismatched old and new).

Poster was suggesting that the 30 minutes driving should not be carried out at 70 mph, a suggestion that was confirmed by the official speed range of 25 - 62 mph from Honda.

Thanks, I was (am suffering from brain fade at the moment ). After resetting my system I use the car normally, anything from mini roundabouts to motorways. I have only had one calibration failure over two cars and the car tells you if the calibration has failed. If I remember correctly.

Honda Jazz Mk1 2002-2008 / Re: Vin number

Welcome. It is a Chinese built GE2, manufactured in 2008. GE means it is a Mk2 but I cannot identify GE2. GE3 were built in China for the European market.

This site http://en.vindecoder.pl/LUCGE271083212345 says it is a 1.2E manual, with a 1.2 litre engine. GE3 has a 1.3 litre engine.

However...with awareness of animal treatment, I rather not have them. Plus if you need to pay extra over an EX, I would forget it.
While we continue to eat the beasts their hides will continue to be used.

Good point,

Only issue is the dealer is 165 miles away :)

As it was the only car with 0% APR , i had to buy it from them :)

I love leather seats...makes the car more expensive and posh. My sister had a Hyundai Coupe and now an i30. Both were leather seats which are fine as long as you feed them by polishing the leather. Didn't experience any sliding problems.

However...with awareness of animal treatment, I rather not have them. Plus if you need to pay extra over an EX, I would forget it.

I think the system has to be regarded as a useful extra layer of safety, but not a substitute for long-established good practices of routine visual checks and reacting to any change in the driving "feel".

Provided the car has clocked up a few hundred miles since the last change then I would ask the dealer to draw off a small amount of fluid from the CVT box and check the colour. If it's still looks like new fluid then there's nothing to worry about. If it's already getting dirty then get it changed (at the dealer's expense). The judder problem takes many years to develop and is caused by dirty CVT fluid staying in the box for too long.

A no deal will affect them but it will hurt the UK much worse.
How come? As I said earlier, in 2017 they imported £95 Billion more goods into the UK than we imported into the EU.
