Customer Question
I just checked with my...
I just checked with my daughter again. Driving a Honda CRV to work. The car was shaking, especially when accelerating and braking. The VSA indicator was on, and a triangle symbol with an exclamation mark in the middle was on, and she also said an odd tubular shaped symbol was on ( I think this means engine malfunction ).

I don't know what you mean by code. All the info we have is what caution lights were lit up on the dash.
Mechanic for Honda: Roy, Import/Domestic Specialist replied 2 years ago

yes, that is an indication of a fialure in the system. a code is stored for this failure. that is what I am talking about. in order for us to help, we need the code that was set by the malfunction lights coming on so we can narrow down the area of failure

How do I get this code ?
Mechanic for Honda: Roy, Import/Domestic Specialist replied 2 years ago

as I stated in a previous post, go to a parts store and they will get the code, print it for you and then get back to us so we can get some information for you to get this resolved.

Ok. I will just get my daughter to take the car to her car service place on the way home to get the problem fixed. I don't believe that you can help me with this one any more.
Mechanic for Honda: Roy, Import/Domestic Specialist replied 2 years ago

yes I can once you get me the code

Roy

To get the code, I am already at the place that can fix the problem. I have talked with the mechanic where I am going to take the car, and he already believes he knows what the problem is.
Mechanic for Honda: Roy, Import/Domestic Specialist replied 2 years ago

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.

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

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

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

This expert is wonderful. They truly know what they are talking about, and they actually care about you. They really helped put my nerves at ease. Thank you so much!!!!
