Question about 2006 Honda Accord

2 Answers

Car won't start. Makes a sizziling or "zzzz" noise when key is turned on.

Have had this problem off and on for almost 2 years. My 3 year warranty will run out October 27, 2008. Took car to Honda dealer for servicing right after problem happened the first time. I was told everything was ok. Tthe first 3 times I had this problem, I called AAA to jump start the battery. Have used Dynamite DP300 AutoPower to jump start at least 8 - 10 times since. Car starts right up each time after its been jump started. Have had to do this at least 5 times in last two weeks. Put an overnight charge on battery last week. Same problem again about 3 days later. I'm hoping that the problem is just with the battery but am concerned that there may be something else causing this. Please help.

Had car checked again at dealership. They stated they checked the charging system and battery would not hold a charge. Found a bad cell in the battery. The alternator was working fine. Battery replaced. Car has been starting fine since battery replaced.

I have a 97 Honda civic Ex coupe and my power driver window, and back right window(when sitting in the driver seat) stopped working. How could i fix that?

If your not over miles then it should be covered under warranty, take it to the dealer for inspection. they have standard 3 year 36,000 mile bumper to bumper warranty... 3 years 50,000 miles on power train...

4 year old battery -- failed low test at dealer service dept. -- looking for recommendations for replacement

You pays your money and takes your chances

It is all about power and warranty, you can get a higher amperage batttery which will turn the engine over a bit quicker and handle the loads easier you can get a 1 year warranty or a 3 year warranty.

If you are keeping the car 3 years it is worth going for the 3 year warranty

If the car is used a lot in winter conditions when there is a large drain on the battery it is worth getting one with more power.

You have to make the choice

I have an internal transmission problem in my 2001 Odyssey.

My wife and I are just resolving this same problem. You need to request a copy of Honda Service Bulletin # 02-062 which is titled "warranty extension: Accord, Odyssey, and Prelude Automatic Transmission. The warranty is for 7 years nine months or 109,000 miles. You are with in both of those aspects. Your dealer should have informed you of this and your transmission is should be completely covered with a replacement that should have an additional 1 year of warranty and 12,000 more miles. I took this issue to Honda America direct and they are in the processing of re-imbursing me for the cost of our transimssion repair.

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."

Steering Column Slip

sounds like the vehicle needs to be serviced by a dealer. is it under 36000 miles? factory warranty runs 3 years or 36K whichever comes first. check with your local dealer or the NHTSA for related recalls or TSBs
