When you put the car in reverse, the 2009 Honda Accord V6 makes a loud squeaking noise. Going to check the transmission fluid to see if it is low. Car runs fine in other gears. Engine has 72,000 miles on the car.
there is a unused harness under trunk trim, anyone know what option this is for?

My car does not want to turn on the first one, it turns on after 3 or 4 tries
I need to replace my transmission
Replaced both map light bulbs and now neither works, manually or auto/door.
I've noticed on a few occasions that after I go over a bump in the road, etc that one or both of my map lights will stop working. Is this something I can fix myself? Thank you!
Starter does not engage
Went to Advance Auto, their diagnostic tool says cat converter or O2 sensor. which one is it? how do you find out which one needs to be replaced?
P0341 code. On cold start only there is a rumble like the timing chain for a second. Sometimes Cruise control wont work after cold start. Sometimes it does but if it doesnt I shut the car off and restart and it works. but as i drive, the engine light and VSA lights up and cruise is off again of course. Putting a load on it on the highway at first will always light it up again. I had a mechanic try to fix it. He replaced the VTEC valve he said it wasnt actuating. But my problem never went away...???
Another thing is when the eng lite and vsa lights come on.... my diagnostic device also flashes the Evac sensor and Calalytic sensor icons only (with the p0341 code of course)... then I'll clear the codes and when it all lights up again it flashes the Evac sensor, Catalytic sensor AND the EGR and Oxygen sensor icons.
And one last question...
I need a sticker on this thing in a week. Will it fail emmissions under this circumstance?
Thank you and sorry for the length of this...just wanna give u all info i can.
Was rear-ended and had to have the left tail light completely replaced. When car was returned to me 2 weeks later, I noticed that the interior map lights weren't working. I took it to a Honda service center, & bought the bulb, but when the technician helping me replaced the bulb, this didn't fix the problem. He assessed there must be a short circuit. I called another Honda to find out if the tail light replacement could have anything to do with the interior light problem and was told no. It's going to cost $150-200 to get this fixed! I've never had this problem with any other car I've owned over the last 40 years. But this 2009 model has had problems from the beginning. Brakes had to be replaced 2-3 times within first 2 years, weird scratches in paint by the door handles, faux leather on center arm rest peeled off, and now there are bubbles in the silver on the door handles! Also have the airbag problem now! Just not the usual quality product Honda usually provides. Based on this, doubt I'll ever buy Honda again.
When should I replace my timing belt
I turned the car off and entered a friends house and when I was leaving and entered the car .. The engine would turn over, but after a few tries it stopped turning over. I took it to a mechanic that works with the dealer I got the car from, and he doesn't know what's wrong with it. I took it from him and brought it to a Honda dealership and they also don't know that the problem is.. Has anyone dealt with this problem ?? If so what can be done ?? Email is: , answer her and email me if you can!! Thank you !!
I just got back from Precision Tune and they told me the timing belt needs to be changed and it will cost between $700 and $900. Is this a good price? I bought the car used so I do not know if the belt has been changed before. How can I be sure I am not being told I need to do something if it doesn't need to be done. If I take it to Auto Zone for a free check, will the diagnostic codes tell me anything about the timing belt?
when I give it gas while starting it sounds like I'm patting on the pedal.
