The plastic barriers are absolutely essential to prevent water from draining onto the floor. In a 2004 Honda, they would be brittle/torn as a result of aging. The "professionals" who installed the remote start system (in the rear doors?) probably reduced the plastic to shreds and simply remove the remains.

Codes first. You can get a code reader at the auto parts store. Maybe a pawn shop, check the year of it. Other wise you could be replacing parts you don't need. A couple of injectors will cost more than the reader. First to check would be spark and fuel pressure. Then again, cost to buy the tools to check fuel pressure on these. These, you have to disconnect lines and insert the pressure gauge and fittings to check.

1st check the #4 fuse (10A) and #10 fuse (7.5A) on the 'under-dash' fuse block.
then #9 fuse (10A) on the 'engine bay' fuse block.

if the fuses are good, the gauge assembly has has "self-diagnostic" feature.

Self-diagnostic Procedure

The gauge assembly has a self-diagnosis function.
. The beeper drive circuit check
. The indicator drive circuit check
. The LCD segments check
. The gauges drive circuit check (speedometer, tachometer, fuel gauge, coolant temperature gauge)
. The communication line check (the coolant temperature signal line between the gauge and ECM/PCM)

Entering the Self-diagnosis Function:
1. Push and hold the trip/reset button.
2. Turn the lighting switch ON.
3. Turn the ignition switch ON (ll).
4. Within 5 sec., turn the lighting switch OFF, then ON and OFF again.
5. Within 5 sec., release the trip/reset button, then push and release the button four times repeatedly.

. While in the self-diagnosis mode, the dash lights brightness controller operates normally.
. While in the self-diagnosis mode, the trip/reset button is used to start the beeper drive circuit test and the gauge drive circuit check.
. lf the vehicle speed exceeds 1.2 mph (2 km/h) or the ignition switch is turned OFF, the self-diagnosis mode ends.

The Beeper Drive Circuit Check:
When entering the self-diagnosis mode, the beeper sounds five times.

The Indicator Drive Circuit Check:
When entering the self-diagnosis mode. the indicators lights (such as: Seat belt indicator light, Door/hatch indicator light, Brake system light. Charging system light, Low fuel indicator light, maintenance required light) blink.

The LCD Segment Check:
When entering the self-diagnosis mode, the odo/trip segment blinks five times.

The Gauge Drive Circuit Check:
When entering the self-diagnosis mode, the speedometer, the tachometer, the fuel gauge, and the coolant
temperature gauge needles go from the minimum position to maximum position, then return to the minimum position.
After the beeper stops sounding and the gauge needles return to the minimum position, pushing the trip/reset button, starts the beeper drive circuit check {one beep), and the gauge drive circuit check again.
The check cannot be started until the gauge needles return to the minimum position.

The Communication Line Gheck:
In the seif-diagnosis mode, after the odo/trip LCD segments check, the self-diagnosis starts the communication line check.
lf all segments comes on, the communication line is OK.
lf the word" Error" is indicated, there is a malfunction in the communication line between the gauge assembly, the multiplex control unit, and the ECM/PCM,
Ending the Self-diagnosis Function:
Turn the ignition switch OFF.

Note: lf the vehicle speed exceeds 1 .2 mph (2 km/h), the self-diagnosis function ends.

If everything works correctly during the check, check your VSS (vehicle speed sensor)

Hopefully it's somewhere with the paper work for your car, should be 5 digits. If not the
dealer will have to get radio serial no. to obtain the code. Good luck.

I would try a few ace hardware locations. Some will cut a blank, that you provide and some wont. Its a gamble.

They need to have a special machine to cut honda keys, kinda like a mill. My ace charged $45 to cut a honda key.

wiggle the steering wheel while trying the key .

2004 Honda... | Answered on Mar 31, 2016

I notice from the questions you are asking that your key wont turn in the ignition lock, not that you just need a new key to replace a lost one.
As you may know, most car keys are "chipped" or programmed to a car so just getting one cut doesn't mean it will start the engine, but this may be alright for you just to find out if the ignition barrel itself is okay. If a locksmith can cut a key for you it will be relatively cheap to do and find out about the lock. Most manufacturers require you to purchase one from a dealer and you will need proof of ownership, but this can be costly and even more so if the new correct key wont work due to a faulty lock.
Hope that helps.

Hi Novelet, Yes any lock smith will supply and cut a car key and if it has a key fob they can program them as well.....CHEERS..

that shaking is misfire,
the engine can in fact do that for 50 reasons.
there are 3 basic tests to find which path.
bad engine tests. (compression)
bad spark (ever tune it up in last 9 years?)
bad fueling, (too much or too little) lots of tests. to find this.....ask

1157 is lean (lean misfire is results) Oxy sensor railed lean.
Id work this first.
Id also reset the ecu, (scan tool) and drive 20 miles see if all these come back.

1009 ( just happed or ignored for long time? )
P1009 Honda - Variable Valve Timing Control Advance Malfunction0122 (my guess, been play with throttle stops, that mess up TPS calibration)
Throttle Position Sensor 'A' Circuit Low Voltage0113
Intake Air Temperature Sensor Circuit High Voltage(113 ran engine with IAT unplugged, is my guess.

This Model does not Support English Language. If you wanted to Set English, you need to get the Firmware Updated with it. The only way would be to contact Service Center and request the same.I am afraid, there is no way round.

Let me know,if needed further assistance.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!
