Customer reply replied 9 months ago
There were no fault codes when the do your replace the solenoid. They just drove it for 30 miles. That was about 2 to 3 weeks ago. Since then the light Has flashed twice. I have not had it re-scan since then.
Customer reply replied 9 months ago
All indications are that it. Is operating fine
Mechanic for Honda: Chad Farhat, ASE Certified Technician A6 - Electrical / Electronic systems A7 Heating / Air conditioning systems replied 9 months ago

to be honest we need rescan or we are guessing ?

with the fault # we can pull up a pin point troubleshoot ?

did the d solenoid fault came back or another now ?

or it a module issue

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

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!!!!
