Known Problems

A poor electrical ground can cause the dome light not to work.

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.

The temperature control knob may break, requiring replacement.

Honda issued a recall on some 2005 Accord models due to a defective fuel pump relay. If the fuel pump relay fails, the car will stall or fail to start. For more information on this recall please click here»

The clock light has a tendency to burn out.

The fuel door may not open far enough to clear the body on some models. Installation of a special spring boot is needed for the repair.

Plugged moon roof drains can cause a water leak inside the car. The water will usually leak onto the driver's or passenger's head when the car turns a corner.

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.

 

A foul smell from the AC system can indicate mold growth on the AC evaporator.

The balance shaft seal tends to fall out causing a large oil leak. There is a retaining device available to prevent the seal from falling out, which can be put in place during routine timing belt maintenance.
