2006 Honda Civic ProblemsAirbag Light Due to Failed Occupant Position Sensor
The airbag warning light (SRS) may illuminate due to a defective occupant position sensor. Honda has a recall campaign to replace defective sensors on affected cars.
The shift control solenoid externally mounted on the automatic transmission (non CVT) can fail and causes a harsh 1-2 shift. Replacing the shift solenoid and flushing the transmission with genuine Honda automatic transmission fluid may eliminate harsh shifting characteristics. A broken internal spring can cause the same issue. If the shift control solenoid does not repair the problem, the transmission will have to be replaced.
Worn door locks (tumblers) can cause the lock not to work. Removing the lock and replacing the worn parts (tumblers) is needed to get the lock working again.
2006 Honda Civic QuestionsWhat's a rough estimate part price on the electric throttle control? (1 answer)
I replaced the pedal position sensor for $210 already and I've come to find out that wasn't the problem... I'm convinced it's the electric throttle control. I ran the computer on my car to see what's wrong and it said the PPS, so I took the chance and still the car has problem...
The car is the new Honda Civic 2006 Model, i want to know the solution to the problems.
2006 Honda Civic RecallsHonda Recalls Certain 1998-2007 Civic CNG Vehicles to Add Insulation for the CNG Tank
Honda recalled certain compressed natural gas (CNG) Civic vehicles to add insulation to the rear seat back. In the event of an interior fire, the CNG tank could become compromised due to uneven heating, preventing the pressure relief safety device from functioning as designed. If the tank heats and does not vent the contents, the tank could rupture and explode. Dealers will install the insulation to help protect the tank from uneven heating.
Honda is recalling 2006-2007 Civic Hybrid and CNG models to address a concern about the excessive lubricant used for the telescoping steering column, which may drip onto and damage the brake light switch. If this happens, the brake lights could become inoperative and the shifter may not release from the "Park" position. Honda will replace the brake light switch and install a protective cover over the brake light switch free of charge.
Honda recalled certain 2006-2007 Civic vehicles for a mounting problem of a sealing O-ring on the rear anti-lock brake system speed sensors. If installed incorrectly, the O-ring will not seal properly, allowing contamination past it and possibly damaging the rear wheel bearings. There is potential for a rear wheel to come off the vehicle if the bearing is worn severely enough. Dealers will inspect the rear anti-lock brake system sensors for proper installation and the rear wheel bearings for damaged parts. Repairs will be made to prevent contamination entry, and to replace any damaged components.
