Hello my name is ***** ***** I will be assisting you with all of your vehicle questions today. Give me one moment while I review your question and come back with a answer. Please be aware I do not know your skill level or abilities so I will be asking a lot of questions and in a lot of cases we will respond to each other quite a lot before we find a solution. As far as phone calls are concerned that is the system prompting you, not me, and they do cost more money, I prefer text but in some cases a phone call is required.

Ok. Text is fine
Mechanic for Honda: Mechanic01, ASE Certified Technician replied 1 year ago

just to be sure recheck fuse 48 in the underhood location, how are you checking fuses?

Customer reply replied 1 year ago
I have just been eyeballing them for breaks in the fuse but they all look fine
Mechanic for Honda: Mechanic01, ASE Certified Technician replied 1 year ago

so the next step for this is we need to verify power on the circuit, do you have a voltmeter or test light?

Mechanic for Honda: Mechanic01, ASE Certified Technician replied 1 year ago

How long do I have access to you under this service for? If I go to buy one can I hit you up after and we can continue from there or would it cost more money?
Mechanic for Honda: Mechanic01, ASE Certified Technician replied 1 year ago

we can talk for up to 3 weeks at the same charge the only extra is a phone call, which I prefer text, and before you go check fuse 32 under dash

and 48 and 54 under hood and 4,5,18,20,21,22 under dash

Customer reply replied 1 year ago
Ok. Will do and will let you know
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
All fuses seem fine under the dash though there are no fuses in slots 18 or 20. All the fuses seem intact under the hood but they are not labeled with those numbers so I just looked at all of them. I will say that the fuses under the dash all look a little charred but with no breaks in them. Pic attached.

thats pretty normal its actually electrolysis because of the metals are different and makes that color, ok now you need a volt meter and were gonna do some back probing and switch testing

Ok. I'll get back to you once I have one. Thanks
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
It might take a while so I'll try to give you a heads up beforehand so we can reconvene at a time that works for on other of us

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!!!!
