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.
On Certain models a faulty power window switch can cause the power windows to work or not work intermittently.
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.
2006 Honda Civic QuestionsHave been told I need a new rack and pinon, how would i know for sure. (1 answer)
2006 Honda Civic, have not noticed any problems with steering.
I accidentally revved my car in neutral and when I realized I panicked and shifted to drive. Now my car makes a grinding noise when I accelerate and now it shakes a lot
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...
2006 Honda Civic RecallsPassenger Frontal Air Bag Inflator Ruptures On Deployment
The passenger frontal air bag inflator may rupture on deployment, causing metal fragments to come through the air bag and injure occupants. Dealers will replace the passenger frontal air bag inflator free of charge to resolve the concern.
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.
