The mileage/odometer on my...

The mileage/odometer on my 06 Element suddenly went out.

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Element yourself? What have you tried so far?

Just happened yesterday. Want to find out more before I go to dealer (last resort).

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

Some the dash lights are out/can only be seen in daylight.

Mechanic for Honda: Greg, import technician replied 7 months ago
Ok good . No need for a call .
That came from just answer ,
Ok does the check engine light come on with the ignition and go off when the engine starts . This I ask as if it does not then you may have a ECU problem.
If all works correctly then you need to get hooked up to a diagnostic scan tool and check for malfunction codes. And then go into live date and check the vehicle speed reading
If all show normal and no relevant codes then you have a instrument cluster malfunction, this can also be tested with a scan tool. If the test show good then you have a wiring issue that a good electrical must check .
Need further assistance with this issue then please get back to me.

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!!!!
