    Dear Colin, does this help? i am facing the same thing where i changed my batter and still it's draining. If i remove that fuse and it will not drain again, then i keep it un-plugged all the time?

    sorry whoever it was who has posted another similar problem ,i have never encountered this problem although iam a mechanic for many years i dont know everything about all makes and models and some things have me at a loss just like this .What i would do here is to try to find the power drain by elimination and the most obvious is a alternator rectifier diode so take the big cable off the back of the altenator then measure the amperage discharge between a disconnected battery terminal and the respective terminal .But on a lot of modern cars i have found the fault to be the electronic dash unit so i fit a switch in the fuse so to speak so it can be turned off .Failing which i buy some heavy duty cable and fit a battery isolater inside the car under the dash area this works all the time and makes a brilliant antitheft device as even if the thieves break into your house and get the car keys then how many would think of looking for a battery isolator ?But then i am only a common cockney from the east end of london and classed as the lowest of the dumb

The retraction tool all depends on the caliper. My 04 Touareg came with 4 piston Brembo's in the rear and they do not require rotation just compression as in the front which are Brembo 6 piston.

Let them see the car.

Did you check to see if the vehicle actually had oil in it? Sometimes small shops forget to put oil in or forget to put the oil plug back on.

It may be less expensive to go to your local corner garage at first, but now look at what it is going to cost you.

You may be able to find this engine in the scrap or junkyard. Look for a car that has rear end damage. This indicates that the engine is still good and none of the seals have been shifted because of the damage. Front end damage may cause seals to shift and have an oil leak

Same as any other vehicle.

1. Raise and support vehicle
2. Remove tire/wheel
3. Loosen/remove the two caliper bolts
4. Slide caliper off the rotor.
5. Use a C-Clamp to depress the caliper piston
6. Remove old pads from caliper
7. Install new pads on caliper
8. Install caliper/tighten caliper bolts
9. Install tire/wheel
10.Lower vehicle
11 Move to next wheel/repeat

Some people take a turkey baster and remove some of the brake fluid from the master cylinder prior to depressing the caliper piston because it can over flow. If you choose to do that just add the fluid back when finished so it is at its proper level.

If the remote batteries are low the car will tell you on the information center by the speedometer. The door handle on the keyless entry is malfunctioning. You must replace the door handle. It usually cost around $160 plus shipping cost. Sometimes the contacts within the keyless entry become corroded or broke. Nevertheless, you need to replace it or have someone replace it. There is one screw behind the weather scrip that holds it in place. You will need a torex wrench to remove it.

The battery for the keyless entry keychain can be replaced at the jewelry counter at your local department store or a real jewelry shop. It is not generally too expensive and it will continue to
operate your vehicle's locks and alarms even if it has been dead for some time.

Door lights will not go out.


Spray a lot of WD-40 or Blaster in the latches on the inside rear of each door. Most likely the drivers door is the issue because it sees the most use. There is a switch on the interior side of the latch that gets stuck. If that does not work, it is possible the GEM module has failed. I believe I have a couple of these if you need one, but usually the switch sticks open (on or depressed and it's normally closed) on the driver door.
Illuminated Entry Illuminated entry is included as a function of the generic electronic module (GEM). The illuminated entry system may be activated in the following three ways:
  • Raise the outside door handle (22404).
  • Press a code button on the keyless entry keypad (14A626).
  • Press the UNLOCK button on the keyless entry remote transmitter (15K601).
Electrical flow through the system is as follows:
  • An interior lamp switch (13752) mounted on the front door latch (21812) closes, completing the circuit of the GEM. This switches the system ON.
  • This illumination will remain on for approximately 25 seconds and then automatically turn OFF.
  • During this 25 second period, the system can be deactivated by turning the ignition switch (11572) to RUN position, locking the doors with the keyless entry remote transmitter or keyless entry keypad or by battery saver time out.
  • The system will turn on every time the outside door handles are operated.
  • Opening the front doors (20124) or rear doors (24630) from the inside of the vehicle will not turn on the system.
  • If the outside door handle is held up so that the interior lamp switch is continuously closed, the system will operate as normal and turn off after 25 seconds.
  • If the door handle is still in the raised position, the system will remain off and it will be impossible to activate the system from the other front door handle until the raised door handle is returned to its normal position.
  • This is built into the logic circuitry of the system to prevent battery discharge should the outside door handle be propped up or become jammed in any way.
The system consists of:
  • generic electronic module (GEM).
  • interior lamp switch.
  • wiring harness.
The GEM is mounted directly to the fuse junction panel (14A067) The interior lamp switch is retained to the front door latch by a keyed slot and is twisted into position.

Keyless entry on honda civic 2006 not working


The keyless entry is designed to work with the doors closed (closed - not locked). If the door ajar sensor thinks the door is open the keyless entry is disabled. When you manually lock the door it might tighten the door just enough to activate the keyless entry. I would try slamming all the doors closed and then see if the keyless entry works. If it still wont work have the wiring checked on the front door lock.
