    CL7: Charging voltage

    Mine was also showing green :-) Meanwhile I think I know what caused flat battery in my case: mostly very short trips averaging just 1 mile over the last 2 years, so it hardly ever got a chance to fully charge as I never cared to take it home for a proper charge until now. Besides that, being a...

    CL7: Charging voltage

    Thanks for the hints: I'll have to check all of those. The ~30mA draw didn't look abnormal to me while the car was locked, so I didn't check for leaks any further so far. Right upon locking it the draw spikes to ~1-2A for 10-15s and then returns to 30mA and settles there, oscillating around...

    CL7: Charging voltage

    I thought Yuasa batteries never die :) No stock BT handsfree in mine. I've just also measured the current when the car is locked and unlocked and got ~30mA in both cases to my surprise. Wondering what else besides the stereo might be contributing to that 30mA draw while it's unlocked although...

    CL7: Charging voltage

    Thanks for the confirmation! Meanwhile I've just measured it at 1k and 2k rpm and got 14.36V in both cases.

    CL7: Charging voltage

    Hi All, Could anyone please share the right procedure to measure the charging voltage generated by the alternator of a 2005 Honda Accord Gen7 type CG7 (2L petrol manual) and what that voltage should measure? Mine measures just under 14.1V when idling, wondering if it's high enough - but perhaps...

    Immobilizer chip type in 2005 Honda Accord CL7 remote key

    Hi All, The parts catalogue tells me the key for my 2005 Honda Accord CL7 is part # 35111-SEA-305 (no separate part # for the immobilizer chip). There are keys on the market that look exactly like mine (e.g. this one) but some of them come with ID46 chip while the others with ID48 chip. Is...

    Will F20B6 spark plugs NGK ZFR6F-11 fit K20A6?

    Hi All, I have a set of 4 barely used leftover NGK ZFR6F-11 spark plugs for my previous Accord with F20B6. Are they safe for use in K20A6 too by chance? It's NGK ZFR6K-11 designed for K20A6, so the only difference is in the letter after "6", which refers to "Firing end construction" as can be...

    Cheap ways to feed music into standard stereo model 2J20 via AUX

    Hi All, I have this standard stereo model 2J20 (would be great to know its make) in my Accord 7. Looks like there are several popular solutions to feed music via its AUX. While weighing them all I've found the following one for Accord 8: https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/263185448679 I suppose there...

    HDS scanner for £15

    Ah that one I saw mentioned here: http://typeaccord.co.uk/forum/topic/15376-get-your-own-hds-tool/ I may never need its full functionality though: was thinking of a tool just for the things like clearing that Service Required LED (the one alerting to the time of oil change etc. ***uming it's...

    HDS scanner for £15

    The seller isn't responding on my inquiries, which in my practice usually means the answer is a No. May I ask which particular one you have?

    HDS scanner for £15

    Trying to get the seller to confirm that it can do the Honda specific stuff and not just read the codes. Will buy it if he does and report the outcome. I doubt returning it is an option though as shipping back to China (which is not refunded) would be commensurate with its price.

    Ultimate clarification on DMF and clutch issues

    Hi All, What I gather from this forum on DMF and clutch issues in diesel ones so far is that there's: 1) slipping clutch issue because of the "weak springing on the LUK/Honda pressure plate", supposedly fixed by clutch revision 325 (a full part number would be great) 2) DMF issue resulting in...

    HDS scanner for £15

    Hi All, It claims to have HDS and even CAN BUS in its ***le... does it look like one of those capable of anything more than OBD2 code reading and so worth trying at so low price? https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/263374673649 From this old thread I'm not keeping too much hope...

    Any major N22A1 engine issues?

    Matt: F6HAD: Thank you... btw did all facelifted 7th ones also come with N22A1 engine (same as pre-facelifted 7th ones)? I'm unable to find the answer anywhere.

    Any major N22A1 engine issues?

    May I ask a little clarification on this one: do I get it right that 2003-2005 ones all came with N22A1 and so have no DPF while the 2006-2008 ones all came with N22A2 and so they do have DPF? I've seen some posts implying post-2005 i-CTDi's come with DPF if I interpret it correctly... namely...
