Honda Jazz Mk4 2020 - / Re: Unusual Driver Information Interface Display

When I stop at lights and junctions I hate vehicles in front with permanent brake lights blinding me in the dark. I apply the handbrake on mine and no brake lights.
I'll only take my foot off the brake pedal when there's a vehicle stopped behind me. Otherwise some less attentive driver coming up behind might not notice that my vehicle is stationary.

Police in Edinburgh had to break up numerous House Parties at Pollock Halls of Residence last night. This sh*te about "Educate, Encourage the Enforce" should go out the window. Slap a £100 fine on everyone involved, irrespective of what country they are from. Then the University should cancel their acceptance and as soon as their quarantine is over, send them home. The local Yobboes may not know better, but the students should.

Your PCV could be malfunctioning and introducing large amounts of oil into the intake.
If that was the case you should be burning large amounts of oil and aware of it, either in a smoky exhaust or falling level on stick.

If you Google "Honda Jazz carbon build up in inlet manifold" it is only an issue with DI engines. Without "Honda Jazz" all you get is DI and Diesels.

Whatever the case may be I'd try get a borescope camera off Amazon or eBay, they are cheap and work well.

Find the easiest way to send that into the intake manifold and see what's what down there for yourself, mechanics will throw labour and parts at a problem until something works and let you pay for it. You won't know if it's carbon build up until you pull the intake off or send a borescope camera down there.

If they blow the fuse then you have a faulty bulb. Cheap Chinese rubbish. Buy a set of bulbs from the EU.
Don't know what the testing in the Netherlands is like but LED bulbs are illegal in Europe in units not certified for them.

The battery is nearly new ,(march), the connector is fine. I have been given the number of a 'Honda specialist' , who told me " Yes this is common on high mileage Jazz's " , "the inlet manifold will be blocked with carbon deposits" restricting recycled gas flow". To inspect  and clean it (apparently it needs to be hoovered out so the deposits don'T enter the engine and ruin it) £165 plus VAT :o
Any of you chaps heard of this?
That doesn't sound right, heavy carbon buildup in the intakes sufficient to cause issues on a petrol engine only really started with the introduction of direct injection engines and in terms of the Honda Jazz that was from 2015 with the Mk3.
It's the exhaust gas recirculation circuit that causes the carbon build-up. Exhaust gases are fed into the inlet manifold to help lower the combustion temperatures which lowers the NOx output. The EGR valve controls this behaviour, it's normally open to allow exhaust gases in during part-throttle loads and closed under idle and full throttle hence cars which seldom see high engine speeds suffer from more build-up of carbon deposits. There was a photo of the inlet manifold covered in carbon deposits on the forum recently.
I've heard of an egr getting blocked but as far as I understand if the EGR system is otherwise working fine it's not going to carbon up the intake much.
It's the oil vapour from the pcv that cause the buildup.

Your PCV could be malfunctioning and introducing large amounts of oil into the intake.

Honda Jazz Mk1 2002-2008 / Re: Led parking lights -> blown fuse

Hi

I donít know about parking lights but those headlight led will fail mot test and you will likely be flashed by annoyed oncoming drivers

I only know because son in law bought them and after mot failure for lights, he openly admitted he was flashed all the time and that one of the bulbs started to fail after 4 months

I was lucky and bought a set of classic car led from here for my daughter car

Many thanks

John

Honda Jazz Mk1 2002-2008 / Led parking lights -> blown fuse
« Last post by philiph on September 26, 2020, 12:32:04 PM »
Hi all,

I tried to install these w5w leds as parking lights. It blown the fuse :)
So I guess that was not a wise thing to do.

https://nl.aliexpress.com/item/4000378018693.html

Are there any other leds for parking lights or is there a way to make them work?



I got these for headlight bulbs but haven't tried them yet. Hope they will work?

Thank you all!

Went to Morrisons this morning, here in Kirkcaldy, and they had thousands of toilet rolls, paper hankies, anti-bac gel and other things that were in short supply back at the start.

We are going to end up with half the kids in the country off isolating.
And, don't forget, their parents.
