Touchy Honda

This bulletin applies to all 2000 and later Honda models equipped with SRS (an example is the 2011 Civic Hybrid). The OPDS (Occupant Position Detection System) sensors in the front passenger seat-back pad are very sensitive and can set SRS DTC 15-3 (faulty OPDS sensor) or 86-11 (faulty OPDS seat-back sensor) if they are exposed to even small amounts of electronic interference.


Insight Is Tire-Sensitive

This bulletin from Honda applies to 2010-2013 Insight and Odyssey models. Mismatched tire sizes will intermittently set VSA DTC 84-12 (steering angle sensor neutral position memorization incomplete).

Honda offers a tip regarding wiring color identification.


Shift-Popping Hondas

If a customer with a manual-transmission equipped Honda vehicle (2013 Fit is an example) complains about stiff shifting or popping out of gear, chances are the transmission has old Honda MTF or aftermarket MTF.


Honda Rocker Arm Oil Switch

This bulletin applies to 2010-2011 Honda Crosstour vehicles. The MIL may be on, with either DTC P3400 (VPS stuck off Bank 1) or P3497 (VPS stuck off Bank 2) stored. NOTE: The symptom may be intermittent and you may not be able to duplicate after clearing the DTC.


Honda Runs Warm and Cold

This bulletin applies to all Honda models equipped with air conditioning. If the left dashboard side vent is warmer than the right side vent with the A/C on, chances are the evaporator core isn’t being flooded with enough liquid refrigerant, causing it to fully vaporize halfway through the core.

Honda Rockers

This bulletin applies to the 2008-2012 Honda Accord V6 equipped with an automatic transmission. If DTC P3400 (VPS stuck off bank 1) and/or P3497 (VPS stuck off bank 2) is set, check engine oil level, as low oil pressure can set these codes.
