Known Problems

Map light will not turn on when opening drivers or passengers door. Caused by a faulty door switch. Requires replacement of door switch on side of non operation.

On certain models the PCM misinterprets data from the coolant sensor and sets a false Check Engine light (MIL). A software update from Honda will repair this issue.

An overheated wire in the head light harness can cause the low beams not to work. Replacing combination light/turn signal switch switch, the wire for the low beams, and the combination switch connector (if damaged) should repair this issue.

On certain models a leaking side marker light wire harness can cause a water leak inside the vehicle. Resealing the wire harness where it goes through the body into the cabin area should stop the leak.

A knock or clunk type noise may be noted from the front suspension over bumps. This is can caused by worm stabilizer (sway) bar links. Replacing both stabilizer bar links will commonly repair this issue.

The front brake rotors can warp and cause a vibration when braking. The rotors will need to be machined or in cases where they are worn to thin, replaced to correct this issue.

The exhaust gas recirculation valve (EGR valve) can fail, resulting in the illumination of the Check Engine Light.

On certain models, the rear blower won't work due to a failed power transistor. Replacing the power transistor will fix this problem.

Noise and judder can develop from the rear axle due to differential fluid breakdown. Replacing the fluid will commonly correct this issue.

On some models sticking rocker pins in the valve train can cause a loud engine noise, and the Check Engine light (MIL) to come on. Replacing the rocker assemblies is required to repair  this problem.

A chirp noise from the timing belt area can be caused by a tilted idler pulley. Installing a corrective shim from Honda will commonly correct this issue.

A faulty front inner fender liner can deform when warm and contact the tires. Replacing the inner fender liner will fix this problem.
