Honda Jazz Mk1 2002-2008 / help! wifes jazz just died on her
« on: May 19, 2015, 09:35:37 AM »
Hi All,
Been having a great year from our first little honda jazz but today on her way to work, battery light had come on, blower would not work then radio went off then as she pulled into work the power steering stopped as well.
its a 53 plate, 120k miles, serviced, all plugs changed/couple of coil packs changed, always has run spot on really.
Anyone any ideas what is wrong?
Could the battery be dead? or what can i check?
Had a new decent Bosch battery about 9 months ago so be a bit miffed if its that!?

Im having to have half a day off to go sort it out so if anyone could advise asap it would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks all

Honda Jazz Mk1 2002-2008 / spluttering type issue on low revs
« on: July 09, 2014, 08:41:39 AM »
Hi All,

Anyone have any ideas on what can cause the Jazz to splutter/stutter at low revs when pulling off?
If you lift the revs to say 1500rpm + and pull off its not as bad/not noticeable but low revs & pull off its like its miss firing & spluttering  ::)
I have serviced it with 8 new genuine honda plugs, good oil & honda oil filter, new coil packs front & back on cylinder no.4 as the check engine light came on a few times and said miss fire on cylinder no.4. Lots of fuel line cleaner like redex & lucas fuel treatment put through but still the issue.  New battery & air filter also done a few months ago.
Cleaned the EGR a couple of times since owning.
Car starts fine, good mpg, does not cut out or drive odd.  Just this splutter/stutter on low/slow acceleration.

oh & i have a new genuine fuel filter as well to fit as the car has done 115k, i know its meant to be a forever/life unit but i got it for 17 new from fleabay so thought might as well!

Only thing i can think of is more coil packs are required? or the dreaded egr needs replacing?

Any help / advice appreciated as we are going away in it in September & need it running well! thanks

Honda Jazz Mk1 2002-2008 / HELP! - no radio, no remote locking....
« on: May 08, 2014, 09:29:47 AM »
 :o wife came home yesterday & said the radio is 'dead' with a blank screen, nothing. & the remote locking is completley dead, even the key only does the drivers door.
had a quick check of radio fuse & remote door lock fuse & they are ok.

Anyone any ideas?  i have a basic obd11 reader & the port is not working either....

Should i disconnect the battery for ten minutes? - only thing is we have no radio code  :(

Thanks for any quick responses, need to get it sorted!

edit_ its a 53 plate jazz 1.4 se
key fobs are working fine & the car battery was replaced about 6 weeks ago with a new decent bosch one.

Honda Jazz Mk1 2002-2008 / Bit of a job!
« on: April 19, 2014, 12:05:44 PM »
Hi all,
Having had the jazz around 2 months and really liking it, i noticed a small oil leak coming from the drivers side  :(
Had a quick look and thought its the sump, went to my friends garage, jacked it up and did oil, filter an plugs and had a look, we noticed it was the outer crank case/chain case pulley seal. 
Ordered one from lings honda (very good site for gen parts) and went back up.

He borrowed the pulley spanner an we jammed it in place and got the windy gun on the pulley bolt, nope would not shift, got some large wrench bars, nope! Got a scaffold pole to extend the bars, nope!

Ended up getting the burning gear on the bolt, red hot, windy gun straight on and crack, nut came undone, but what a job for a 10 oil seal!

All good though and we chucked some new pads on as well while we were messing!

Just a heads up if yours is leaking from here, you may get a large bill for the labour/job as it seems to be an issue to get this pulley bolt out if you google it.  I was lucky, i didnt pay as it was a mate  :)

Honda Jazz Mk1 2002-2008 / 17" alloys on jazz?
« on: March 11, 2014, 03:19:50 PM »
Hi All

The other half is asking about alloys for our newly acquired jazz.  Its metallic silver, i polished it up at the weekend using my rotary polisher & menzerna polish's and it looks fantastic, does not show its 10 yr age at all.

now as its looking all nice, the little steel 14" wheels let it down a little & was wondering if anyone has an early jazz with 16" or 17" alloys on.
I have seen some really nice Dezent RB in silver on offer for the 17", don't really want to miss them, but would 17" be too large for a little jazz & i'm guessing that the 40mm tyre wall would ruin the ride quality?

Now bare in mind, fuel is not really the issue with having larger tyres (they would be 205/40/17) & we are not traveling all around the uk or long commutes.  We will have the odd day or trip out etc & would like to make it look better with some alloys!

Thanks  8)

Hello Everyone,  :)

My wife & i are collecting our first Honda Jazz tonight  8)
traded in her old t reg clio & got a 53 plate 1.4 dsi & pretty sure its an SE model as it has electric rear windows & electric sunroof & aircon!?
It has 113K on the clock but full Honda service history & dirves & looks like new.  Really happy with it & cant wait to polish it up & have days out with our son without worrying about the cost of fuel! (my car is a subaru & a little heavy on fuel  :o to say the least) So it will be nice to have a reliable car with a good size interior & economical to use - let happy motoring commence!
