Honda Jazz Mk1 2002-2008 / Re: Pre-MOT test.
« Last post by Jocko on Today at 09:57:17 PM »
I will eventually. It is done through my son-in-law. The garage does trucks and buses and John puts a lot of work their way so it may get lost along the way.

Just seen a beautiful 2005 for £775. Alloys, full electric, air con, new battery, discs and pads, even reverse sensors. Looks mint. Tomorrow may decide whether I go and have a look at it.

Honda Jazz Mk4 2020 - / Re: Dash Cam Hardwire Installation
« Last post by Cobb2 on Today at 08:35:10 PM »
I've added a Nextbase 322 and a rear cam fitted to the side of it ( just on the passenger side of the mirror)- so no need to run a wire through to the back hatch. So far I've been quite impressed with the quality of the front and rear cam (the latter giving a very similar view to the rear mirror ). But if you have rear passengers that will restrict the view a little.
I've used the suction pad so I could be sure that I had the right position

I haven't hard wired yet and may not bother since its very easy to hide all of the wiring  just along the windscreen edge, door rubber and then under the door seal and eventually behind the glove box coming through to the 12v socket - so really I'm not aware of the  wiring. In a Crosstar with 2 USB's its not likely I'll need the 12v accessory whilst driving.

It is worth mentioning that a good quality U3 64gb SD card  did not work very well and unfortunately I had to buy a Nextbase one which is somewhat more expensive but does work efficiently. Several other people have reported this problem in online reviews.

I've noticed that there are currently some good offers this week at Halfords or at Nextbase, especially the latter if you want to add the side rear cam as well.
If you set up the camera in the controls it does indeed have a very small battery in it which should record a parked car incident.

A Pre-MOT test?? Do you pay for that? :o

Honda Jazz Mk1 2002-2008 / Pre-MOT test.
« Last post by Jocko on Today at 07:55:11 PM »
My ageing Jazz is going in for a Pre-MOT test tomorrow morning. My son-in-law arranged it at very short notice. Normally I do not bother, but it has now gone 18 months, and two and a half years ago we got an advisory for Nearside Front Suspension arm pin or bush worn but not resulting in excessive movement rear bush (5.3.4 (a) (I)). This was the wishbone rear bush splitting.  My son-in-law doesn't want to replace anything in case we are wasting money changing parts that don't need replacing and maybe find it fails on something else.
The short notice means the car is filthy and needs a good vacuum out. I always present my cars washed and valeted.

I had my Nextbase 512G set to trigger on shock (car bumped when parked). The problem is these files are locked to prevent overwriting, and potholes and the like can also result in files being locked too. Unless you reformat the card at regular intervals, you end up with the entire card (or most of it locked). I ended up down to 20 minutes recording before it started to overwrite. I only found this out when I tried to view an incident that happened an hour earlier!

Honda Jazz Mk1 2002-2008 / Different stereo aerial connectors?
« Last post by UKjim on Today at 07:01:44 PM »
I believe Honda switched to the later style aerial connector from the facelift model year (2005) coinciding with the change in stereo model, I believe an adapter is available.

Honda Jazz Mk2 2008-2015 / Re: Battery failure

This afternoon Halfords price matched a Yuasa ybx5054 battery from Tayna against their own  Yuasa HBS154.

It is clearly the same battery, and I managed to convince the manager of this.

Result!

I crawled under the car and cleaned the CPS. It wasnít very dirty. Immediately the light came ok, but it was a bit overdue 😃 So the CPS isnít the culprit 🤔

You could only say that with any certainty if you swapped it for a new one, they can go faulty.

Did you give it a good looking at, no surface cracks etc.?

The Nextbase series 2 dash cam battery only has about 15 minutes running time available. I have a 322 hardwired through the ignition on so that is only works with the engine on.

I believe that it has the technology not to rundown the battery if you have it hardwired to an always live feed.

It's always worth a go!
