    Alternator charging voltage - 2006, facelift, Accord, 2.4 petrol, 4-door

    I seem to remember reading somewhere that 14.2V is the minimum it should be charging at, or have I got it wrong?

    Battery replacement - 2006, facelift, Accord, 2.4 petrol, 4-door

    Just an update:- Replaced it with a Yuassa battery. £60. Watch out for the nut on the VE+ terminal, you will need a socket with an extension to access it. I attached an old battery so that I didn't loose any of the settings. Thanks for your help.

    Will the car lose any codes, memory, etc when the battery is disconnected?

    Good point. Have already been through that, and the bluetooth unit has been disconnected for over 12 months. I must admit the voice commands are great for impressing the passengers, and i do miss that feature.

    Battery replacement - 2006, facelift, Accord, 2.4 petrol, 4-door

    Yes, have tried that, tna. It's got to the point where if I leave it for 5 days then it's 50/50 whether it will start or not. So doesn't require changing immediately. Is it possible to top up the battery, even thou they are "maintenance free"? (its a genuine Honda battery)

    Obviously, nnew battery needs to be 12V. May seem like a daft question, but does it matter if these figures are different on the new battery? 48Ah 420A CCA (EN)

    HOW TO PROGRAM ANY HONDA, ENGINE COMPUTER JUST BY USING YOUR SMART PHONE

    I thought it was $5 (five) dollars PS I have ADAS on my car. The Adaptive Cruise won't work before 20mph, and I want to change that parameter from 20 to 1 or 5mph. The Lane Keep ***ist won't work below 46mph, and I want to change that parameter to say 25 to 30mph.

    Wanted 7th gen 2.4 vtec

    I own a 2.4 saloon, just over 100K miles on the clock, but unfortunately for you I don't want to sell it. It's the most reliable car I've ever owned.
