Honda Jazz Mk2 2008-2015 / Re: Retrofit OEM cruise control
« Last post by JazzLeon on Today at 09:11:48 PM »
My apologies tot the late reply. I've only one switch on the clutch pedal. So it seems like retro fitting the OEM cruise is not possible in a plug and play mode.
 
And since a airbag recall is needed, I'm finally going to upgrade tot a leather steering wheel. I'm going to change al the controle over and delete the cruise buttons.

We've only had our jazz a couple of months so I'm still learning how to get the best out of the cvt box .
So far I'm getting  40 around town , which is more stop than start at the moment and 48 on a run to north Wales to visit family.

If Honda are giving this gadget away it must be of more use to them than you.
The voice of experience. Companies never offer anything out of the goodness of their hearts.

The speed/volume adjustment is on by default. Unfortunately it doesn't quite do the job at high speeds.
The adjustment is not just on or off.  You can change the sensitivity.  I increased mine to give better audio at higher speeds.

SVC normally has 3 levels and off,  but because exterior noise level depends so much on road surface I find it better to leave on  a low setting and turn the volume knob if I need more, that is why us mere humans beat machines, the SVC needs to monitor ambient noise levels as well as vehicle speed and then weight the adjustment to match human hearing LOL.

Sick of taking off cleaning  can you actually take it apart to clean. If I blank it off would it cause any harm

Blank it off but leave it connected - otherwise you will get a light on  :D

Only starts to open above about 3500 rpm to 'cool' combustion and reduce Nox.
Thanks

Honda Jazz Mk2 2008-2015 / Re: Michelin Tyres
« Last post by culzean on Today at 02:27:24 PM »
Fiddling about this am trying to locate a rattle when I found my tyre depth gauge so checked the tyres.

As the question of tyres raises it's head frequently thought this might be of interest.

4 Michelin 185/55R16H Green XL tyres fitted 20th February 2015 Approx mileage approx 40000.
N/S  Front 6mm N/S Rear 6mm O/S Rear 6mm O/S Front 5 plus mm.  This was as the result of pothole and tracking had to be done.
Mileage now 55500 plus. 
I think that is a pretty good advert for Michelin

Tyres normally start off with 8.5 to 9 mm of tread depth when new.

The good wear is exactly why I used to get Michelin ES,  but still had to replace them about every 15 to 18 months,  but you do sacrifice a bit of grip to get the wear - I have had Avon ZV-7 on Civic now for about 6 months (was either pay about 75 a corner for ES or go with the Avons for 50,  don't know how many miles the Avons are good for but I don't do the big miles anymore) and have really noticed the extra grip and steering response.   When ES fitted - on some junctions with a bad surface I used to regularly (just pulling away normally) spin the wheels on when even dry or slightly damp - they don't spin even if I try to make them now (other than revving it and dropping clutch LOL which I don't do anyway).

If you were 'pressing on a bit' on twisty roads you could feel the ES squirming and losing grip, don't get that with the Avons.  they are very confidence inspiring.
