Question about 2005 Honda Accord

1 Answer

I'm trying to install a remote start system on a 2005 Hondal Accord, but I can't figure out how to get the plastic cover on the steering column off without breaking it. I need to access the wiring at the ignition switch to do the install. I removed the screws, but there are some plastic tabs holding the upper and lower halves together. Anyone know how to get them apart without breaking the tabs?

I think those just pull apart. Let me know how the install goes with th remote start. I hear they are tricky with the stock imobilizer systems.

How do I align the clock spring in my 2005 jeep liberty. We changed the heater core and now my horn and cruise control does not work and my air bag light is on.


read the manual, yet, ?
the service manual. be like first ....
do you want dead air bags, in an accident.???
the clockspring runs many things.

step one is shut down air bags. or risk personal injury.
chapter 8L covers this and 8O, and is not trivial at all.
easy to take anything apart , harder back'
I have no idea at all what you dismantled, not a clue.
and is key to the answer, for sure.

installing CS is chapter 8O (oh as in Oscar) service manual.
INSTALL.
WARNING: To avoid personal injury or *****, on
vehicles equipped with airbags, disable the supplemental
restraint system before attempting any
steering wheel, steering column, airbag, occupant
classification system, seat belt tensioner, impact
sensor, or instrument panel component diagnosis
or service. Disconnect and isolate the battery negative
(ground) cable, then wait two minutes for the
system capacitor to discharge before performing
further diagnosis or service. This is the only sure
way to disable the supplemental restraint system.
Failure to take the proper precautions could result
in accidental airbag deployment.
CAUTION: If the clockspring is not properly centered
in relation to the steering wheel, steering
shaft and steering gear, it may be damaged. (Refer
to 8 - ELECTRICAL/RESTRAINTS/CLOCKSPRING -
STANDARD PROCEDURE - CLOCKSPRING CENTERING).
Service replacement clocksprings are
shipped pre-centered, with the release button
engaged (raised) and a molded plastic shield
installed over the release button. This release button
should not be disengaged and the shield
should not be removed until the clockspring has
been installed on the steering column. If the release
button is disengaged before the clockspring is
installed on a steering column, the clockspring centering
procedure must be performed.
NOTE: Before starting this procedure, be certain
that the front wheels are in the straight-ahead position.
(1) Carefully slide the centered clockspring down
over the steering column upper shaft until the two
integral plastic latches on the back of the clockspring
housing are fully engaged through their openings in
the steering column lock housing (Fig. 17).
(2) Reconnect the two instrument panel wire harness
connectors to the two connector receptacles
located below the steering column on the back of the
clockspring housing.
(3) Position the upper and lower shrouds onto the
steering column.
(4) Align the snap features on the lower shroud
with the receptacles in the upper shroud and apply
hand pressure to snap them together.
(5) From below the steering column, install and
tighten the two screws that secure the lower shroud
to the upper shroud. Tighten the screws to 2 N·m (18
in. lbs.).
(6) If the vehicle is equipped with the optional tilt
steering column, move the column back to the fully
raised position and move the tilt release lever back to
the locked (up) position.
(7) If a new clockspring has been installed, remove
the plastic shield covering the release button that
secures the clockspring rotor to the clockspring case
to maintain clockspring centering.
(8) Reinstall the steering wheel onto the steering
column. (Refer to 19 - STEERING/COLUMN/STEERING
WHEEL - INSTALLATION).
NOTE: Be certain that the steering wheel mounting
screw is tightened to the proper torque specification
to ensure proper clockspring operation.
(9) Reconnect the steering wheel wire harness connector
to the upper clockspring connector receptacle.
(10) Reinstall the driver airbag onto the steering
wheel. (Refer to 8 - ELECTRICAL/RESTRAINTS/
DRIVER AIRBAG - INSTALLATION).
(11) Reconnect the battery negative cable

Noise of 2004 Volvo s40 2.4i


Cannot figure out what that part is, but it has a vacuum line connected. Therefore, it should not be functioning unless the engine is running. I would have to guess there is a wire crossed in the key cylinder. The presence of the key should activate the warning system and perhaps deactivate the security system. However, the engine system wiring comes in proximity to the warning wiring behind the ignition switch near the contact reel. It's possible you have a short in that area. I am posting access instructions from autozone.com.
CAUTION Models equipped with a Supplemental Restraint System (SRS), use an inflatable air bag. Whenever working near any of the SRS components, such as the impact sensors, the air bag module, steering column, and instrument panel, disable the SRS.

  1. Before servicing the vehicle, refer to the Precautions Section.
  2. Disconnect battery cable.
  3. Remove steering wheel and air bag module. Refer to Steering Wheel removal and installation.
  4. Remove steering column covers. Remove or disconnect the following:

    Screws from lower coverClip mounting between the upper and lower coversLower steering column coverUpper steering column cover
  5. Remove the contact reel:
    1. Disconnect the left connector.
    2. Remove the screws.
    3. Remove the contact reel.

Wiring diagram for the ignition system on a Chevy 1985 truck


The pins in the steering column have either pushed out or worked loose under the plastic covers. If you don't want to tackle taking the column apart and trying to piece it back together, just find a used steering column assembly. It's a very common problem on GM cars and trucks between 1975 and 1997.

    Remove plastic cover around top of steering column on '05 Accord


    1. The wire you need are not going to be in the columm. They are going to be under the collumm, under the dashboard.
    2. Also if you have a microchip in your key, the remote start will not work. Unless you take a spare key with a microchip in it, and tie it with a paperclip to amplify the chip, inside the steering columm or close to it. (because the microchip key doesn't necessarily need to be inside the ignition) so when you use the wireless starter, the computer will think the microchip key is being used.
