JA: Is the power loss consistent, or does it fluctuate?

JA: Are you hoping to fix this yourself? What have you tried so far?
Customer: yes, nothing yet other than to try and find if there is a master fuse that could be the issue
JA: Anything else you think the mechanic should know?
Customer: no

It does sound like he tried to jump start the car backwards. There is a "multi" fuse in the under hood fuse box.

this would be a 100amp fuse. this fuse will be held in by 1 screw. You might have to go to the Honda dealer to buy it.

The part number would be 38231-SDA-A01
