Honda Jazz completely immobilized
« on: December 15, 2020, 02:38:41 AM »
 I wonder if anyone has experienced the above problem. That is the vehicle does not respond to the remote transmitter
 on the key. I have tried the spare key but no change. Nothing in the car works at all although can enter it with the ignition key. All rather disappointing as I only bought the car from a dealer 3 months ago.
 Any suggestions to remedy the problem would be muchh appreciated.
Thanks very much.

Is there a light on the fob you can see in subdued light ?

If not it may be just need a new fob battery.
Let's be careful out there!

You say nothing in the car works at all although can enter it with the ignition key. Do you mean once you are in the car you cannot turn the ignition on and such? If that is the case, then the battery has either died completely, or the main supply fuse has blown.

Have you been using car regularly - as Jocko says may just be the car battery died..... you need a voltmeter on the battery terminals to see what ( if anything ) is living in the battery. You can use a spare bulb and bit of wire across battery and see how bright the bulb is,  but hard to judge voltage from brightness  - a voltmeter is much better.

Welcome to the forum.  :)

If it does turn out to be a replacement battery required, the good news is that they are cheap to buy (I paid <40 delivered!) and easy to fit.

Without any further information, it does smell like a stone flat battery.

Get one of these... This is a steal at this price - you need a good battery with a CVT as cannot 'bump' start like a manual - if you don't know how old the battery is on your car get a new one anyway, then write the date it was fitted on it.   At this price for a premium battery you cannot go wrong,  this has more cranking amps ( 340 vs 280 ) and  A/H ( 40 vs 35 ) than standard Jazz battery.

the battery has T3 posts ( normal small Japanese JIS type for Jazz ) and split collars to adapt the posts to larger T1 ( DIN type ) terminals,  you will just discard the collars and use the JIS terminals for your Jazz.

Ring the dealer you bought it off - his problem

Car batteries are not normally covered under a used car warranty, but it's worth asking. However, if the battery is flat because you left an internal light on or something similar, you could get a bill from the garage/dealer for coming out to it.

Dealer may well just charge up battery, but once a battery has been fully flattened they are dodgy for ever after, they may just bung a second hand or cheap as chips battery in there that may last a few years.

The model the OP uses in their profile is for a Jazz 2013-2015. I would expect that the original battery has died given the age of the car, and as such it's part of running a car and not something I would expect a dealer to cover months on since purchase.
