Known Problems

There are known convertible top issues.

On certain models the PCM misinterprets data from the coolant sensor and causes the Check Engine light (MIL) to illuminate. A software update from Honda will repair this problem.

There is an issue when the ignition switch is on for about four or more hours. The powertrain control module (PCM) can misinterpret serial data and cause the Check Engine Light to illuminate. A software update from Honda will repair this problem.

The air/fuel sensor, located in the exhaust system, may be damaged by moisture in the exhaust resulting in illumination of the Check Engine Light. Replacing the damaged air/fuel sensor and updating the powertrain control module (PCM) software should correct this concern.

A problem can occur with a vibrating expansion valve in the AC system and cause a whistling noise from the passengers vent. Replacing the expansion valve with an updated valve from Honda will repair this problem.

The S2000 is set up with aggressive alignment settings and soft tire compounds to enhance handling. These alignment settings and soft tire compounds result in tires wearing out earlier than anticipated. This is a compromise made to have a car with exceptional handling characteristics.

Some S2000's can develop a problem with the transmission popping out of fourth gear. A new updated fourth and fifth gear assembly will repair the problem. The transmission will have to be removed and disassembled for this repair.
