2007 Honda Accord Problems
RepairPal has identified the most common problems with the 2007 Honda Accord based on complaints from actual vehicle owners. We'll tell you what the problem is and what it'll take to fix it.
Power door locks can activate intermittently due to a faulty door lock actuator in the driver's door.
Front compliance (lower control arm ) bushings tend to crack and break requiring replacement.
The radio and climate control display can go dark on some models. It will be necessary to replace the affected unit to correct this concern. Some customers have reported receiving help from Honda regarding this repair.
Owners have reported a number of prematurely worn rear wheel bearings. As the bearing fails, a rotational humming or grinding noise may be noted from the rear as vehicle speed increases. Replacement of the rear hub assembly, which includes the bearing, would be necessary to remedy this condition.
The 1998-2016 Honda Accord may develop issues with the automatic transmission.
Rough shifting may occur, and the “D4” light and check engine may begin to blink. The check engine light will also illuminate, and OBD trouble codes P0700, P0730, P0740, P0780, P1768 and/or P1768 will be stored in the computer.
If the transmission shifts roughly, the failure is very likely mechanical failure of the transmission. If the transmission performs normally, a faulty sensor, or dirty transmission fluid may be the case.
In most cases, it is necessary to use professional diagnostic equipment to provide a diagnosis, and complete the repair.
The longevity of the transmission is dependent on strict adherence to the manufacturer's recommendation for ATF replacement intervals and procedure.
The computer can misinterpret a low battery voltage and can cause a false Check Engine (MIL) light to come on. Updating the PCM can correct this issue.
Some models have shift quality problems when shifting into third gear. A new "third gear set" from Honda will address this issue.
Damaged engine mounts can lead to vibration and roughness felt in the steering wheel. A rattle in the dash and engine area may also be heard. Replacement of damaged mounts will commonly correct these issues.
The 1990-2016 Honda Accord engine oil pressure sensor may leak from normal operation.
More information about the oil pressure sensor here.
To correct the leak, the sensor must be inspected, properly sealed and installed, or replaced with new.
The Honda Accord may have issues with the idle air control system, causing:
- Erratic/bouncing idle
- Poor fuel mileage
- Illumination of the check engine light
- OBD trouble code P0505
- Engine stalling is possible
The idle air bypass system is made up of vacuum lines, an idle air control valve (IACV), the throttle body, and intake manifold, and allows enough air into the engine to idle when the throttle body is closed. The OBD trouble code P0505 refers you to this system to inspect for failures.
The most likely cause is a dirty or failed IACV, but vacuum lines, intake manifold gasket, throttle body gasket, and IACV gasket should be inspected.
In all cases involving the IACV, the throttle body ports should be cleaned prior to installing the IACV onto the throttle body.
