No warning lights coming on in dash

Hi All,

Well this evening I decided to change reversing bulbs for LED type. Left ignition on and car in reverse so I could make sure polarity of the LED bulbs was correct.
Pulled bulb out, pushed LED one in which flashed and went out so I tried 2nd one which didnt light so I put original bulb in which also did not light then noticed that the other side reversing light had gone out and assumed the fuse had blown.

Gave up and got into drive home, put key in, welcome lights came on, turned key and no warning lights came on - zilch! Pressed start, turned over lovely but not firing. Got nothing working that is normally associated with the "run" position of the key.

Called AA, 2 hours later a 3rd party garage turned up, 10 miutes checking fuses using his phone torch to see what he was doing and declared it's a "broken relay" wrote me up and buggered off. Luckily was still at work so could take a van home.

I'm conviced it's a blown fuse but haven't had time to check. I'm open to suggestions on which one, 36 internal comes to mind.

Any ideas gratefully received.

Cheers

Open your driver door and remove the triangular panel which forms the side of your dash. Underneath this panel is a black round switch. Push it in very hard then try starting your engine again.

In the Honda manual it's called something like a fuel pump cut off switch or inertia switch.

Try this and let us know.

I imagine the AA must have checked the fuses as it's the first thing that came to mind. But the fuel cut off switch is jumpy when people have put on footwell lights, hence I wonder if it's the same if u have a short in other places.

I had te exact same problem last weekend after putting in the footwell lights. Luckily my AA chap worked for Honda and after checking the fuses, battery, starter etc, went strait for the fuel cut off and it started strait up.

I agree your absolutely right. But after I put my foot well lights in, my car would turn over beautifully but not start. There was no bangs or accidents, it had been parked on my driveway way where I had left it working perfectly before I started the install. Yet the fuel cut off still activated after I had tinkered with the electrics a little. Strange one.

Thanks, Will check the fuse properly in the morning.

The lisiting in the Owners Manual leaves a lot to be desired!

The "technician" that rocked up was tapping a relay in the fusebox in the engine bay and his oppo was watching the dash who say lights were flashing hence their "its a broken relay" diagnoses... Didn't occur to them that they were actually making the relay cotacts to make a connection onstead of finding the route of the problem

The AA chap who showed me how to fix mine and luckily used to work for Honda, said that it's also supposed to cut out in flooding/waterlogged conditions. So maybe it's very susceptible to shorts aswell.

Hi Guys,

Went and checked fuse No. 10 (7.5A) on the inside fusebox as suggested. Found it blown, replaced it, turned key and Bobs your uncle, dash indicators came on and engine fired up.
Have got DWL on but not surprised, just needs to be reset.

Thinking about it now, the fuse is marked "Meter" probably means instruments which sort of makes sense.

Thanks all for your input

Kev

PS was going to have a bit of a moan at the AA about the garage they sent out but decided not to as they are one of my customers lol
