    2008 Honda Accord EX V6 Sedan—So the other day I was at a light and all of a sudden the battery light came on and the car would not go forward. Almost like if I was in neutral. The RPM’s went up but the car wouldn’t go. I sat there for a good 3 sec until the car jerked forward and ever so...

    Hi everyone, sorry for the dumb question (yes, first post). Hopefully you all can help me out. I just picked up a 2017 EX. I didn't test every single switch when I picked it up (my fault) and it's just out of warranty. Dealer has said they won't include it as good will, even though I've been...

    Hi everyone, I'm new to the forum and looking for some help. I have a 2015 Accord Sport, MT if that helps. I'm doing a Raspberry Pi based Android Auto unit. It will be an add-on, so I'm not looking into taking out the radio. The way I am envisioning my setup will be directly blocking my...

    Well, I was enjoying my 2.0T on a Saturday drive when, in Sports mode, I accelerate to about 50mph then I hear a loud slipping sound coming from the engine. The sound lasts about 2 seconds then I felt a loss of power and acceleration. I turn off Sports mode and the car shifts to a lower gear...

    So I bought a salvage '02 accord with a non-functioning passenger side window, thinking it would be easy to fix, and... it isn't. The motor might be bad, but I'm thinking there's a problem with the wiring too, because I'm not getting voltage with a test light on the blue/yellow and blue/white...

    I have a 2009 Honda Accord coupe EX. I recently had to have my Starter Motor replaced. Before the tow guy showed up all electrical systems worked just fine, radio, door locks, windows, key fobs. Now after the install of the new starter motor my radio screen does not work, not even the time. I...

    So a big thanks to everyone who helped out with my MPG questions! Your suggestions were very helpful, something I've noticed tends to be the standard around here (this is why I love this forum).

    Headlights dimming (going from low to high(good) strength) Is this an alternator issue? It's not the bulb or the connection. THe battery light in the dash comes on and off as well. I can also hear it on my radio (the low whiney sound I get when I have my phone as an MP3 player "pulses"...
