  1. The 7th Generation
    For the past year or so, my 2005 Accord LX 2.4 v4 has exhibited random stiffening of steering. It'll be smooth, then stiff, then smooth. The issue seems to get worse with the AC running and is worse when driving slowly or having to make tight turns. Also, for the past year or so, if it's...

    Hi there guys, 2009 Accord LX 4Cyl with 185k on the clock and the last 25k being mine. I just got back from having my summer tires put back on, and the shop that did the work let me know that I'd need a new steering rack and pinion before my next inspection. This shop isn't known to try to rip...

    I apologize. I imagine this has been asked before, but I can't seem to find the answer. I'm using an add-a-circuit kit to supply power to an accessory which I want to be always on. This accessory has a delayed shutoff, so I'm not worried about running down the battery. I've heard some say that...

    Hey guys, just want to pick your brains. I've got an '05 Accord EX 4 cyl sedan with 143K miles. Regular oil changes every 5K miles. So really over the past year I've noticed the engine seems to be losing HP and struggling a little more to get up to speed, especially on hills. It's not...

    I was reading a forum about this but I had yet to join the site. After joining I can't find the forum again, so I apologize in advance of duplicating the topic. Question is this. I have the four scensors that went off, Tire Pressure(TPMS), Vehicle Stability(VSA), Electrical Power...

    As a lot of us have been through the radio backlight going out and the radio staying on while the car is off, I am going through the same thing. A while ago I had an aftermarket single din radio installed where the storage cubby was. Problem solved. Now the OEM radio display keeps flashing on...

    Hi All, New to the forum and can use your help and suggestions. 2006 Honda Accord EX. I am noticing that my power (gauges and radio) is flickering when I am in traffic conditions (stop and go) and around the time I let go of the gas pedal. A few days ago, the battery seem to discharge when I...

    My 2004 Honda Accord LX V6 Coupe is not starting anymore even though the battery is perfect. Here is what I know so far: -Battery reads 12.4 volts on the voltmeter, so battery is fine and the alternator should be good. -When I turn the key to the on position, nothing illuminates on the...

    There are a couple of threads discussing this, most of them broke off into other discussions so I felt it would be simpler to start a new thread. If you want to debate if having a socket always hot will drain your battery I would suggest you join the debate here . If you have any suggestions for...

    Just a small afternoon project to free up a power socket and tidy up my c0ckpit a bit. Also works with a radar detector power cord, phone charger, etc. PARTS: 12v Power Socket. I used this one because it has two sockets and wires already attached, but you can probably find one for a buck...

    Hello! I'd like to start out by saying that I own a 2003 LX with no climate control. Secondly, as you can see this will be my first post, so please don't flame me for my ignorance. Today I was getting ready to pull error codes from the OBD2, but I accidentally poked the wrong pin with my handy...

    Hey there, I have a 2004 Accord I4 with 81,000 miles. I want to get it closer to the way it performed when I bought it new because I know engines loose power over the years due to carbon build up on the valves and in the crank case. Has anyone ever tried Sea Foam on their Accords? Was it easy...

    Hi guys, I recently bought some Lucas Oil Upper Cylinder Lubricant and injector cleaner at O'reilly. Just wanted to know if any of you have ever used it on your car and if so would you recommend it, did you see a difference in power and or fuel economy? Could it potentially harm my engine some...

    OK, so I think I really messed something up. I was trying to get to a/c compressor so I started to remove alternator. I unplugged the harness on the front, then started to unscrew the bolt holding a connector wire to the alternator...so BIG SPARK when the wrench touched both the alternator bolt...
