Question about 2006 Honda Accord

1 Answer

Radio controls work incorrectly

I have had this problem for over a year, but it never occurs when I take it to the dealer to have it diagnosed. The problem is with the volume control on my steering wheel.

On some days, I can press the volume "down" control and my radio volume will increase. On the display it will show the volume going from 13 to 14 and so on, all while I am pressing the volume DOWN control.

On other days, I can press the volume down control and my (preset) radio station will change to another preset radio station. I actually thought I had pressed the wrong key, but I had not, it was the same volume down control giving me yet another problem.

Do you have any suggestions? When it occurs, I cannot get to the dealership (there is only one in my city, on the opposite side of town from where I live) fast enough, before it self-corrects.

Cadillac P1652 Powertrain Induced Chassis Pitch Output Circuit Powered by Zorac's OBD Check Engine Code 2000 model

The PCM uses output driver modules (ODMs) to control many functions of the engine, and the transaxle. The ODMs supply the ground path for the PCM controlled device when the PCM commands the device ON. Each ODM is able to control several outputs. Unlike the quad driver modules (QDMs) used in earlier model years, the ODMs are able to diagnose each output circuit. The PCM monitors the ODMs for circuit conditions that are incorrect for the commanded state of the ODM. If the PCM detects an improper circuit condition in the ODM that controls suspension Lift/Dive, DTC P1652 will set. This something you need to take to the dealer !

I need radio code for 2005 model chevrolet aveo

Your radio code should be written or printed on a small card with the original vehicle manual package. If you don't have this then you'll have to go back to the dealer and ask them for this as your "car battery died and you needed a boost". Use this trick or they will charge you for it, typically $120-180 for it. Then make sure you have it written down somewhere for future use. This is the one code most people forget about when buying a used vehicle until its too late.

2001 VW Golf TDI ,overheats,spent over $2000 instaled new radiator,water pump,timing belt kit after VW dealer at Ontario,CA diagnosed problem.Car still overheats,but I used other repair shop to replace...

Fact is, for a 2001 car, taking it to a dealer is just asking for trouble-they saw you coming, and too advantage of it. You might consult with an attorney, but the fact of the matter is you decided to allow them to 'diagnose' it and then took it to another facility for repair. That it took them 4 hours to incorrectly diagnose says it all-unless a car is under warranty, taking a vehicle to a dealer is a huge waste of money.

Get a compression test done-it might reveal a blown head gasket or worse, damage to the mating surfaces of the engine and head(s)-I think the repair facility who actually did the repairs bought into the bad diagnosis, so appeal to their professionalism-have them do the compression test and a pressure test to the cooling system to determine the extent of the damage. Finally, your car is 10 years old-the dealer should have done right by you, but more often than not, the abuse people who drive older cars because of the years of attachment and the possibility of a huge bill.

Chevy aveo issues

If you mean change the code needed to input into the radio then the only way it to take it apart and reprogram it. That would cost more then the radio itself.

So if you can't get the code in your either have the fix the button or get another radio.

Radio display does not work

Honda has a problem with the PCB board in the radio, See your Honda dealer for repair info. Service bulletin 04-027 says:

"In some audio units, a component failure on the PCB
(printed circuit board) could cause the audio display to
become dark or dim, and prevent the audio/HVAC
panel buttons from illuminating.
To ensure that customers have adequate warranty
coverage for this potential problem, American Honda is
increasing the warranty on the audio unit display to
7 years or 100,000 miles, whichever occurs first. For
other defects the standard 3 years or 36,000 miles
warranty applies, whichever occurs first."
