Intermittent random faults showing up on dash and I drive system. One at a time. Mainly transmission error and lighting system err
ANSWER : Hello. When it comes to power issues while driving, it is typically related to the charging system in some way. A miscommunication with the battery would effect the performance. Before getting too technical, start with the simple stuff. Check the alternator output with a voltmeter, or have it tested at your local automotive store. If both the battery and the alternator are in good working condition, then you can turn your attention to a control module or a programming issue. The warning codes that are being triggered should be read and used to help in the diagnosis. If several different systems are failing, you will likely have a charging system error, or a malfunctioning control module. Further testing is needed.

ANSWER : Hi there, thanks for writing in.

It sounds like you are having a serious electrical malfunction, which is very hard to diagnose without being able to look at the car first hand. The first step to diagnosing your electrical issue would be to scan all the relevant control modules in the vehicle, to see if there are any faults relating to any of these issues. It sounds like somebody at the dealer has been trying to fix this problem, so it may be a more involved one. I have personally seen failed control modules cause things like this, but that is no guarantee that it’s the problem in your case. It would be best to have a qualified independent technician, such as one from YourMechanic, look at your car to diagnose your electrical problem.

How do I use the audio system with a navigation system?
ANSWER : If you have an Accord with an in-dash navigation system, there’s good news. Most of your audio system functionality still comes from the standard buttons on the interface. However, there are some things you can only do by using the “interface dial”. This is the large knob on the lower center portion of your system. It combines three different elements:

The enter button
The rotating knob
The selector direction pad (up, down, left and right)

The selector pad is what lets you access the menu system, and scroll through lists, menus and other items.

To access a menu item, use the arrows or knob to highlight it, and then press enter.
