2006 Honda Accord Questions

if you shake it hard, it will come loose eventually. Am I damaging it, and what causes it?

A/C blew cool last year. Now nothing. I bought a can of 134A at the auto parts store specifically because it comes with a reusable hose and gauge. With the car running and the a/c switch on max the compressor does not engage. After attaching the hose to the suction line the gauge almost pegs out ...

I have a 2006 Accord EX 4 cyl with 106,000 miles. It's never been in an accident. Just noticed today that the left turn signal does not come on at all in front or back - no arrow, no light, no flash. Also, when I checked the emergency flasher, it does not come on on the left side. I changed ...

2006 Honda Accord Recalls

This limited regional recall is for vehicles currently registered or first sold in Florida, Puerto Rico, Hawaii and the U.S. Virgin Islands, and equipped with Takata-brand air bag inflators. Upon deployment the driver and/or passenger airbag inflator could rupture, increasing the risk of personal injury. Honda dealers will replace the affected airbag inflator modules to correct this concern.

Certain driving styles can result in a broken outer race of the secondary shaft bearing inside the automatic transmission. A broken outer race may cause abnormal noise, the Check Engine Light to turn on, and contact between the transmission idle gear and an electronic sensor housing to occur. This could result in a short circuit, causing the engine to stall. Also, pieces of the outer race or ball bearing may become lodged in the parking pawl, resulting in the vehicle rolling after the driver has placed the shifter in the Park position. Dealers will update the transmission control module software to correct this concern. The Honda recall number is R89.

Honda has recalled 2006 Accord, Civic, CR-V, Element, Insight, Odyssey, Pilot, Ridgeline, Acura MDX, RL, RSX, TL, TSX, and 2007 Honda Fit vehicles because the contact information for the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) is listed incorrectly in the owner's manual. Honda is contacting dealers and customers to provide them with a postcard containing the correct information.

I have a 2006 Accord EX-L with Navi. It has been a great car for 75000 miles and will continue to serve me for several more years, I'm sure. This is my second Accord. The only complaint I have is that the body seems made out of butter. The body & paint are quite delicate, dent & scratch easily. I have also had to replace the brakes twice, which I never had to do at all on my 2003 Accord even af...
