Customer Question
My remote start quit...

My remote start quit working. If I hold the button down for about 3 seconds, the car lights flash, but thats all I can get it to do.

Mechanic's Assistant: Just to clarify, can you tell me which light it is? And does it blink first, then stay on steady?

The tail lights flash on and off 5 or 6 times. not sure about headlights

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the make/model/year of your car?

2009 Honda accord

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

Tried looking in the manual, that's when I realized it's not a Honda part but Avital

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

Tried multiple times, no luck. It's about 6 degrees F outside, the remote starter worked fine in cold weather until today. Is it just the battery in the remote start fob?

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

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
