Honda no longer supports the TPMS sensor tool AKS06200060. This has been replaced with the ATEQ VT55. According to Honda, the old tool will not work with the Accord and Crosstour, and Honda notes that the ATEQ tool is “just a better tool all around.”
A starter failure can result from an improperly seated ATF dipstick on 2006 and later Honda Ridgeline and Pilot, 2007 and later Odyssey and 2008 and later Accord V8 vehicles.
This bulletin applies to all 2005-2007 Honda Accord vehicles equipped with the L4 engine. The MIL may illuminate along with DTC P0139 stored (secondary heated oxygen sensor slow response). The possible cause: The PCM misinterprets secondary heated oxygen sensor signals and sets the DTC.
If you discover an external oil leak at the radiused section of the cylinder head cover on a Honda engine, it may be the result of excess paint overspray in the sealing groove. According to Honda, this includes all 2006-2009 Accords, some 2010 Accords, 2006-2009 Civic Si, some 2010 Civic Si, some 2010 CR-V, some 2010 Element and all 2006-2009 Element models.
Owners of certain Honda Accords and Crosstours may comment that the smart start warning light comes on intermittently. DTC B12D1 (power control unit IG1B circuit error) may be set. The possible cause is a faulty under-dash sub relay box.
