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.

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.

REMOVAL & INSTALLATION 1994-95 Accord NOTE: Do not attempt to remove the ignition switch assembly if you do not have replacement bolts available.

  5. Remove the two nuts and two bolts securing the steering column, carefully lower the column assembly.
  6. Use a center punch to mark each of the two shear bolt heads securing the ignition switch assembly to the steering column. Use a 3?16 in. (5mm) drill bit to drill off the heads. Take care not to damage the switch when drilling.
  7. Remove the bolts. Remove the clamp and remove the ignition switch assembly.
  8. Remove the three screws securing the switch and remove the switch. To install:
  9. Make certain the recess of the switch aligns with the tab of the lock housing. Insert the switch and install the retaining screws.
  10. Position the switch assembly on the steering column. Install the new shear bolts; tighten them finger-tight.
  11. Use a wrench or socket of the correct size. Tighten the shear bolts until the heads break off.
  12. Raise the column and install the nuts/bolts. Tighten the nuts to 10 ft. lbs. (13 Nm) and the bolts to 16 ft. lbs. 22 Nm).

    Replace airbag on `92 honda accord

    When an SRS cable reel assembly is removed and set aside during vehicle repairs, the cable reel may rotate inside the assembly so it is no longer centered. If the assembly is reinstalled with the reel off-center, the cable can break when the steering wheel is turned to full lock. The cable reel holding fixture locks the reel while the assembly is off the vehicle, keeping it centered for reinstallation.
    1. Follow the procedure in the appropriate service manual for disconnecting the battery, and removing the dashboard panels, steering column covers, airbag, and steering wheel.
    ^ Always install short connectors on the connectors for the driver's and passenger's (if so equipped) airbags.
    ^ Make sure the front wheels are pointed straight ahead before removing the steering wheel.
    2. Verify that the cable reel is centered; the yellow gear tooth is lined up with the alignment mark on the cover. Install the cable reel holding fixture in the cable reel assembly as shown. Use a TORX T-10 wrench.
    3. Disconnect the 6-P connector, then remove the cable reel assembly.
    1. Verify that the front wheels are still pointed straight ahead.
    2. Reinstall the cable reel assembly, and reconnect the 6-P connector.
    3. Remove the cable reel holding fixture.
    4. Follow the service manual procedure for reinstallation of the steering wheel, airbag, steering column covers, and dashboard covers.
    5. Verify SRS operation as described in the service manual. Road test the vehicle.
    ^ If the steering wheel spoke angle is not correct, change it by adjusting the tie rod ends. Do not remove and reposition the steering wheel.
    Cable reel holding fixture:

    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.
