Can you tell me a way to bypass the code for my radio Honda Element 2003

Then goes away after awhile

honda replaced the blender motor and found the blend door is binding. They say entree heater bow needs to be replaced. Thoughts and cost?

I am in the market for a used car. Preferrably sold by owner and I don't have a lot of money. I find cars that I can afford but the mileage is always extremely high. My options at this point is a:
2003 Honda Element with 174,000 miles OR
2007 Dodge Caliber with 106,000 miles. I hear Hondas can go well beyond 200,000 miles with ease which is why I even looked at that one. But I haven't heard much about the Caliber. Any thoughts/suggestions/recommendations? Thanks in advance.

'04 one owner, Full synthetic high mileage oil changes regularly, new air-conditioner, just had her tuned up.

my car is making a clunking sound when driving. was told its the rack & pinion? what is this and what will it cost to fix?

When I come to complete stop and then accelerate it jerks a little and I feel slight rumble under front of car

I only own one key. The steering wheel is not locked and it is in park.

I replaced starter ignition switch & ignition relays. Still making buzzing noise after driving for 5 minutes, then quits.

I've been replacing the filter in my Toyota Yaris for years now, but this is a new (to us) car, and I wonder if the replacement is fairly easy for someone like me, who is not mechanically-minded, to do.

Maybe the rear differential? It goes away once I'm holding a consistent speed. No problems turning.

and car wont start, keep trying and still get the buzzing noise and eventually it will start. Was told it could be clutch sensor is this true

05 Element
Opened up panel and motor was very hot. Unable to manually pull window to close. Had to remove it from regulator then get creative to hold window in place till I can trouble shoot.
Found motor/regulator cheap. Window switch as well.
Will add a tester to my Mommy tool box to check power n ground.
The excessive heat concerns me.
Any thoughts or info??

At 1st it barely turned over and then went completely dead after 5 tries. Tried jump starting but turns out the battery is fine (it's 2 mo. old). Rarely has it been slow to start and only once has it not started at all...thus the new battery. I have a feeling the dealer would love to replace the starter but sounds like this may not be the problem from the previous questions. Any suggestions??

2005 Honda Element, when I hit small bumps such as a sewer drain or small bumps in the road, the front right side seems to make a loud Klink sound. I have replaced lower and upper ball joints on both front of the car. When traveling at higher speeds 55-65 the front right side tire seems like it shakes a lot more then needed. If I were going up hill at the same speed the front right side feels as it's more dragging along. Any suggestions?

When I hit small bumps i hear a clicking noise. It doesnt matter if I`m turning,the Steering seems fine..not loose..Ball joints, struts, swaybar? Perhaps other or all of the above..lack of front differential oil change...any feedback is wonderful...Thanks in advance.

When I accelerate from a stop (e.g. at a Green light) there is hesitation and the engine sounds like it is going into "turbo charge" and then returns to normal engine noise. This noise does NOT occur when accelerating rapidly when car is moving. "Mechanic" replaced LAF sensor however it is not resolved. Request EXPERT, QUALIFIED response PLEASE. TY.

I have just purchased a honda element and there is no check engine light. I changed the oil, and still its eating gas. The req maintance light is on.

Switch is set for light to turn on when doors are ajar. Have to tap the dome light when switched to the "on" button. Sometimes light will come on but sometimes it won't. The light in the back works fine.

When my a/c is on I hear a loud squealing, lose acceleration, and smell something electrical... I took out the a/c fuse so that I could drive it, but it's SO HOT now and I need to fix it! Is it necessarily the compressor? Can I fix it myself? Has anyone else had this problem, and if so how much did the repair cost?

was hit in the back side gas cap is on and the check gas cap light is on had new one put on years ago light never did go off the dealer said there was nothing wrong
