Hi, my name is ***** ***** I will be happy to assist with this today.In some cases, I may need more info to assist better.I apologize for any delay.

What has to be done from here is to have the fault codes read out/checked with a fully compatible scan tool that will plug into your vehicles data port that can read all computers in your vehicle.Once this is done any codes set then need to be diagnosed to then locate and repair this issue here.If all lights have come on this may be a low voltage issue due to a weak battery or alternator at fault.It may also be a faulty ignition switch not sending the proper signals.But the codes will need to be checked and diagnosed as there are several other causes for this code as well.

Most shops or a dealer can read out the codes as well as diagnose and repair them for a fee.A local parts store can read out codes usually free of charge and can give you an idea of what is at fault needing replaced but won't be able to fully diagnose the issue.The parts store can also test the battery and alternator in your vehicle at no charge to you.

If more help is needed, use the reply tab to continue our conversation. If no further assistance is needed, kindly rate my service, your 5-star rating is appreciated ( should be a link to click on here or above).You can rate at any time and we can continue to work on your question as this will not close out your question.I work on delivering the best answer and help here but in some cases, it can be difficult to do without seeing the vehicle.

Thanks Pete

What Customers are Saying:

I took the Power Steering O-Ring service bulletin linked from JustAnswer to my Acura dealer, and not only did they no-charge the o-ring, they also replaced the power steering pump at no cost.

Gary RStevenson Ranch, CA

Thank you very much for saving my daughter and her family a lot of money on her Honda. You are definitely on my list for future help. Thanks, again.

FredUSA

I just heard from my mechanic. You were right...a $45.00 job. THANK YOU!! Your response was received in less than 10 minutes!!

Linda B.USA

Your answers were clear and the diagrams were perfect. Dealer wanted $87 for an hour of labor and even I did it in 15 minutes.

EdUSA

HONDA PLATINUM was great. I really appreciate his help. I was ready to trade my new Honda until he told me to wait until I got 3,000 miles on it and my gas mileage would get much better.

SummerUSA

Wonderful service, prompt, efficient, and accurate. Couldn't have asked for more. I cannot thank you enough for your help.

Mary C.Freshfield, Liverpool, UK
