Honda Jazz Mk2 2008-2015 / Re: Intermittent Starting Fault
« Last post by madasafish on August 14, 2020, 10:31:46 AM »
Crank and camshaft sensors can start failing: ok when cold, don't work when warm.

First port of call - need an auto electrician to test when engine is warm

These sensors don't always show an error code in the ECU when faulty. It could also be failing coil packs unless these have been changed recently, again, these don't always show up error codes either. It definitely needs a good investigation by someone competent.

And any SEMI competent auto electrician will be aware of what you have posted.

My advice to the OP: the people you used are not semi competent.

(If I - a non mechanic , non auto electrician- know about the above, the people you used must be numpties.. It's fairly common knowledge when doing diagnostics.)

Honda Jazz Mk3 2015 - 2020 / Re: This damned tyre pressure warning system.

I have a BMW which has pressure sensors in each wheel and after parking in the sun there can be a pressure difference of almost 3psi between the sunny and shady sides.
Standing in the sun. But once you start driving the differential between sides will disappear.

Parking in the sun makes it a problem checking the tyre pressures on the drive before you set out - I have to wait for a cloudy day  ;)

Best to do it first thing in the morning.

I've always checked tyre pressures late at night when the temperature is at it's lowest. I don't reset the tyre monitoring system until the morning just before driving off, never had a problem with any of our Honda's (CR-V, Civic & Jazz) doing this procedure. You definitely need stable temperatures to get the most accurate pressures (e.g. no sun or other temperature sources like close buildings on one side of the car).

It has strength. It just looks hideous.

Yeah that's a fair bit worse than mine. I assume it's still got to be much worse still before it becomes an MOT issue?
