Re: Battry Dead need to open hood,Followed Manual for...
THERE IS A PLUG THAT CAN BE PURCHASED AT SOME AUTO PARTS STORES. IT HAS A DOUBLE-ENDED CIGARETTE LIGHTER PLUG. THIS CORD CAN BE USED TO BOOST A CAR'S BATTERY. IF YOU ARE GOOD AT SPLICING, YOU CAN PROBABLY MAKE ONE UP WITH A DECENT GAUGE WIRE. HOPE THIS SOLVES THE PROBLEM. PLEASE KEEP ME POSTED, THANKS FOR AN HONEST RATING AND FOR USING FIX-YA. GOOD LUCK

Need to check your owners manual for the code or look for a sticker somewhere on the glove box. Also there is a card at times with the code. Also check the repair records if taken to Honda to be serviced. It will say code followed by the number.
If test light is a 12 volt light tester AND ILLUMINATES BRIGHT it shows that a component is actively trying to complete a circuit and yes drawing power causing a drain on your battery, now if test light illuminates low, possibility could just be ecm memory or antitheft system active . either way this test should only be done with a 12 volt test light as if you use a 5 volt (computer friendly) tester , false light will have you chasing a ghost. trust me. that trick helps by checking for parasitic draws a 12 volt tester does not illuminate when keep alive memory voltages are present . those voltages are not enough to drain over night. good luck
In the fuse box under the hood near the headlight open the cover, open the red cover with the plus sign on it, it should be 12 volts or so there, if not then either the battery in the trunk is dead or the fuse on the positive terminal is blown. If there is voltage at that point there is another fuse or two blown in the fuse box, check the higher amp fuses, the 120A main fuse, the DC fuse, use a voltmeter or test light to check.
I recently tried the DIY service and repair manuals from a website and it actually helped me repair transmission problem in my jcb 3cx site-master. It would'nt move forward or reverse, engine was good both solenoids for forward and reverse worked, but still couldn't diagnose the problem.
I don't have much technical knowledge but I just followed it step-wise, and now it works perfect! covers wiring, codes, diagrams, torque specs, PCV, everything

There is a pull out tab in the fuse box located in the driver foot well.
It's a red rectangular block, pull it out to expose the metal clip.
Put a battery charger or other source of + 12 volts on the clip, and the
negative end on a ground (has to be a good ground, try the bolt on the
door). then activate the hood release switch.
i supose the am fm radio just dosnt cut it anymore well lets give this a try . first u must disconnect positive battery cable so you dont short any wires . remove screws that hold in factory radio pull radio out a feww inches as no to rip out any wires.next you must locate positive 12 volt power supply wire usually red or orange .if not shure connect battry cable again and use a 12 volt test light by attaching the ground cable on the test light to a good clean metal bracket under dashboard or connect to a black groundwire with a screw into the steel under dash next probe the wires goin into the factory radio ur looking to find power 12 volts once you have found the correct power wire use tape and mark it this will be the power wire for your new stereo next u must figure out what wires for what speakers osually 2 wires per speaker 2 rear speakers and 2 front speakers meaning a total of 8 wires follw me so far ? now disconect car battry again so not to have sparks and cut or disconnect remaining wires speakers first label all with tape and mark front right front left rear left rear right there is a + and - the wire with the stripe on it is usually the + the other wire is the - being negitive ground . this operation is important in order for your fade ballance controlls to work properly now with your new cd player inhand look and see what wire is gonna be 12 volt most times its red with a fuse eg white plastic connector small fuse inside there it a must proper fuse to protect new cd player now there will be a black negative this will go to the matal ground area under dash close to where cd player goes into dash red to the orig taped 12 volt supply now ur spks one pos+ and one neg or common to each speaker now make all conections with stereo before you push stereo into dash you must hook up car battry leaving cd player hanging out so you can make wire changes if you wish on the speakers you need to use one pos front right or rear right + with one common or neg black - to the spkr the same common or ground or - whatever its called one common or neg can be used for all spkrs .good luck tape and solder all connections after you feel all is good im sorry this is all the help i can offer you be careful
