Is the MICU actually replaced? My dealer did it and told me it was just a software update?!

I got mine done today, first they told me it was an update then they phoned to tell me that 'the micu could not be updated therefore we are fitting an updated MICU'.

Was in for approx 4 hours, however they fitted a new front strut also during this time

It should take somewhere in the region of 1-2 hours depending on how fast the technician is who fits it. I have done one in 45 minutes but there fiddly things to do.

Just out of interest, where is the MICU located - is it under the drivers' footwell?

Is this just for the 1.8 model?

Ive checked my VIN number on the honda website and it says that there are no outstanding recalls.

I have a 2007 2.2 SE.

Cheers

If you look in the drivers footwell where the accelerator pedal is the look upwards you will see a fusebox with lots of different coloured fuses and wires coming out of it. This is the micu unit that is replaced.

Garage quoted me just over the hour to do the re-call fix for my 08 EX and that's exactly what it took, hour and 10 minutes.

most dealers perform a health check of sorts allso at the same time as the recall. this bumps the time up to and over an hour. there a fidily job to do

Hi Dspence09,
I have a 2006 2.2 ictdi diesel Honda civic. Is programming required after changing fusebox?
Mine has been diagnosed by independant garage/electrician to be an issue with MICU. When I replaced with one from scrap yard. Engine turns over but does not fire up. Also key light keeps flashing.
If programming is required. Can HDS do this or some other tech is used?

Thanks


By the way error I am having are P0615, P1384, P0670.
Glow plugs replacement did not fix anything. Heater relay was replaced error still did not go away. Car is stuck in limp mode.
Starter relay was bypassed by Previous owner. If put back correctly then starter motor does not turn. Since their is no live current coming through designated wire. Electrician checked the wire and found no break in wire.

Hi All,
I have found the procedure to configure MICU. I am listing it here so some one else in similar situation can obtain information.
Basically programming is required once under dash fuse box is replaced. This fuse box is also called MICU (multiplex integrated control unit).
If for any reason it develops a software issue or any other problems. Firmware is not flashable. Hence Honda will replace unit and if you are out of warranty and your VIN number is not in the recall from Honda. Then prepare yourself to hand over 400 pounds atleast. As of 12/04/2013 cost of MICU unit is 290 + vat and 45 pounds for putting it on the computer to pair it with the immobilizer.


Details I found are as follows.

REPAIR PROCEDURE
NOTE: To replace the under-dash fuse/relay box
(MICU), you need these items:
Replacement under-dash fuse/relay box (MICU)
One programmed ignition key for the vehicle
HDS with software version 2.002.006 or later
PCM Code (The 4-digit code is available on the
i
N. Go to
SERVICE
, and select
Vehicle
Information
from the left column, then select
Immobilizer Code Inquiry.
)
1. Replace the under-dash fuse/relay box (MICU).
NOTE: When you replace the under-dash fuse/
relay box (MICU), you must
use the HDS to register
the IMOES unit with the i
mmobilizer-keyle
ss control
unit. If this procedure is not done after the MICU
replacement, the engine will not start.
Refer to section 22 of the appropriate 2006 Civic
service manual, or
Online, enter keyword
FUSE BOX
, and select
Under-dash Fuse/Relay Box Removal and
Installation
from the list.
2. Connect the HDS to the 16P data link connector
3. Insert the programmed ignition key into the ignition
switch, and turn the ignition
switch to ON (II). Turn
on the HDS.
4. At the screen prompts, enter the VIN and the
odometer reading, and then verify the date and
time are correct in the HDS.
5. From the System Select
ion Menu screen, select
IMMOBI.
6. From the Immobilizer Te
st Mode M
enu screen,
select
Replace MPCS/MICU/IMOES,
and follow
the screen prompts to register the IMOES unit.
7. From the PCM-Code screen, enter the PCM Code,
and then follow the screen prompts. When the
process is complete, turn th
e ignition switch to the
LOCK (0) position, and then turn off and disconnect
the HDS

Fuse box replacemetn

Hi All,
I will answer my own question.
Fuse box does require reprogramming. Immobilizer won't allow it to work. So ECU needs to register this with Immobilizer.
Critical part of the programming process is the PCM code. That apparently changes everyday. And is only available on the honda internal network.

But my honda problem did not go away after changing Fuse box.
I am still getting P1384 & P0670 which are glow plug relay circuit open and glow plug circuit malfunction.

This car seem to be messed around with wiring. Starter circuit relay has been bypassed. If put back the way it is supposed to be, Starter motor does not crank using start button. BAsically no live feed coming through the MICU.

After replacing MICU still no live feed coming through to respective relay.

I suspect problem with ECU. Sending it to the dealer for a correct diagnosis.

Forums have been useless in terms of electronic issues or starting issue or LIMP mode problems


Looks like Honda is the Iphone of Car world. Anything happens run to the dealers.
