The AC evaporator and/or the AC condenser can develop a refrigerant leak. The AC system will not blow cold air if this happens. Diagnoses, commonly using leak detection dye will be necessary to determine the source of the leak.

The car may drift to the right because the camber (alignment setting) is set unevenly. A 4-wheel alignment will be needed to reset the camber angle.

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.

Overhead sunglass holder will not open/glasses stuck inside.can't shake it loose to open.

Poor radio reception can be caused by corrosion in the antenna mast. Replacement of the antenna and other corroded parts will be needed.

The ABS modulator valve assembly (hydraulic unit) may develop a brake fluid leak.  This can result in illumination of the ABS warning light and in certain cases, loss of braking ability.

The AC evaporator can develop a refrigerant leak. The AC system will not blow cold air if this happens.

The upper windshield molding can vibrate at higher speeds causing a noise. Back filling the molding with a silicone sealer is involved in the repair.

A Check Engine Light can come on because some models may misinterpret the ratio of air and fuel being burned for combustion. The powertrain control module (PCM) will need to be replaced to fix the problem.

Accords powered by the V6 engine had a defective timing belt tensioner that could result in excess "slack" in the timing belt. This could cause premature timing belt failure, which could result in serious engine damage.

The PCM can misinterpret misfire data and set a false Check Engine (MIL) light requiring a PCM update to repair.

Front compliance (lower control arm ) bushings tend to crack and break requiring replacement.

On certain models, a transmission solenoid can short-circuit and illuminate the Check Engine Light.

On some models a mis-manufactured AC evaporator core can cause the AC to cool poorly. The AC evaporator needs to be replaced for the AC to cool properly.

My radio went out mid-2009 about the same time that my co-worker's '03 Accord EX's radio went out. Honda's only solution is to buy a replacement unit which costs around $800. I took the car to a local car audio shop that told me it may be the internal amp inside the radio that went bad and would cost me about $250 to repair or I could install an aftermarket radio underneath the existing radio where the cubby is located for about $160 or I coul...
