car   Check Engine Light On problem 1
Failure Date: 11/03/2017

For the second time in less than 2 years a spark plug blew into the engine while attempting to drive, we were going no more than 50mph when the check engine light came on and the car completely just shut down. The vehicle would not cut on . Have taken it to a nearby Honda dealership and have been informed that the spark plug flew out of place and the engine will need to be replaced. Unfortunately this is the second incident where this has happened. Last year in 2016 the exact same thing happened.

car   Check Engine Light On problem 2
Failure Date: 02/25/2013

Check engine light went on and off a few times, took it to autocheck and found a code. Took it to dealer, they could not locate the code and claimed there is no issue they can find, come back when it happens again. Few weeks later, the check engine light came again in the evening, and now with other problems, the whole electric system including lights, radio etc started dancing on and off, abs light came on and off. Happened for a few minutes and then everything went smooth. I took the car back to dealership and they claim the code p0685 was found and there was a software update for the pcm and they applied that update. I asked why was there no intimation about it and the response was that it was not considered as one of the critical updates. With the experience I had, the way things were happening in that 2-3 minutes of electric system dance, anything could have gone wrong with the car. There should be a recall notice sent for this update.

car   Check Engine Light On problem 3
Failure Date: 02/10/2011

When driving the car, the check engine light flashed on, then off. We took it to the mechanic who found nothing wrong. A week later, the light flashed on and off again. Another trip to the mechanic and then to the dealer revealed that a spark plug had come loose and broke apart causing the cylinder head, cylinder wall and piston to be damaged. The fix was that the car basically needed a new engine (replaced short block, cylinder head, all spark plugs and all necessary gaskets and seals). Due to the number of miles on the car (69k at the time of incident), it was no longer under warranty. Everyone from the mechanic to the dealer said they had never seen this happen before. Honda did end up paying for a percentage of the repair, but our portion was still around $2500. This was our first Honda, we bought it based on reputation and because we put a lot of miles on cars. We never expected to have to replace the engine at three years old.

car   Check Engine Light On problem 4
Failure Date: 09/22/2007

The contact owns a 2007 Honda Accord. On September 21, 2007, the contact called the dealer because his vehicle would not start. After several unsuccessful attempts to start the vehicle, he waited a couple of hours and the vehicle finally started. He took the vehicle back to the dealer and was informed that there was failure within the battery. After testing the battery, the dealer stated that the battery was fine; however, there was a micro chip in his key that was preventing the vehicle from starting. The contact informed the dealer that he wanted a new vehicle. During the second week, the engine light would illuminate and the engine would jump and shake as if it would shut off. During the third week, while driving 15-25 mph, the headlights would not dim when they were deactivated. He pulled over and the vehicle would restart. The failure became more frequent as time progressed. The current mileage was 1,500 and failure mileage was 250.
