Question about 2004 Honda Element

1 Answer

No warning for leaving head lights on

I need a headlight reminder....I keep leaving them on and draining the battery. I don't know if it had one that isn't working, or if one can be installed. Recommendations for other older honda vehicles do not work: using an accessory socket under the dash or placing a piezo between the rear defroster and the headlight fuses.
Help!

Does the key reminder work?? if so then there could be a problem with the tail light relay which feeds the body control module, that feeds the gauge module which feeds the beeper. I would advise taking it to the dealer, or a shop that does a lot of HONDA work. ,

How do I disable Headlight On buzzer


the buzzer is there to remind you that the head lights are still on when you exit the car
disabling that buzzer will get you a flat battery by leaving the lights on
a better request would be--- how to fix a problem head light buzzer so that it stops working when the head lights are turned off---

WHERE IS THE HEADLIGHT CHIMER LOCATED IN A 1994 HONDA ACCORD EX.


timers are not all that expensive as they are just that timers
They can be used as turbo shut down units , light control units or what ever
what may be expensive is finding an accredited auto electrician to fit i so that it does what you want
Speed shops or good spare parts shops will be able to get one for you.
replacing the warning unit may be a cheaper option as they can loose volume over time.

Yaris minor problem after accident/repair, dome light, key and headlight warning sound


Some body in the workshop may have switched the theft deterrent system from active to passive mode during the scanning process.
The theft deterrent system has two arming modes;
Active and Passive. Active arming mode allows the
theft deterrent system to activate normally. Passive
arming mode is used for the servicing. The
intelligent tester allows the theft deterrent system to
switch between Active and Passive.
If the problem persists contact other qualified personnel.

Battery light, ABS light, and Oil light flashes on and off when driving the car. Dash lights,front marker lights, and tail lights will not come on until the car is warmed up.


Electrical problems are hard to fix. You need a voltage test for the charging system and a battery test.

The oil light, abs light, are not hooked up to the turn signals. Never heard of balance of lights coming on in that manner.

The heater fan, headlights, and wipers will slow if the charging system can not keep up. Battery light is accurate to show discharge.

Trans shifts can be affected by voltage. Some transmissions use electric solenoids to shift and they mix voltage to get different gears.

Hi, I have Mercedes C180, I have changed both Sam units. Now it's battery keep draining out. Once it's starts its run fine. Can some one help me please.


Don't you have some warning lights on your dash? MB cars are fly-by-wire that tend to depend so much on battery electricity when shut off. Use a high amps battery or battery recommended matching your car model. Check on some instruments that can be a parasitic drain to your car like, car alarm, sticking relays on auxiliary fans, radios. Worse you have a short somewhere or a wiring harness issue, but it should be giving you a warning on the dash.

Hello there, Well I have a 95 mustang srs V6 the problem i have with it is that whenever I turn on my lights (headlights) a beeping sound goes off as if the doors were open. Again this only happens when...


Thanks for choosing FixYa and welcome. I would say this is your reminder switch that is beeping. When the car is off, it will beep to let you know to turn off the lights. It probably isn't recognizing the car is on, only the lights being on. It could also be a sign of a headlight out possibly. I would say your headlight warning switch may be bad. Either that or the light. It is only supposed to go off when the car is dead and the lights are on. As far as the location of the part, I really don't know. This is just a possibility.
