Warranty invalidated thanks to the AA
Hey folks, wonder if you could sanity check this for me?
Further to the message I left, as I didnt want to drive the car I called Honda Happiness who arranged for the AA to come and look. He was with the car for about an hour, running diagnostics, and came up with the following error codes:
p0219 engine over rev
p1704 clutch pedal switch
p2503 engine oil levl
Note, I first noticed the PGM-FI error when getting in my car after work, and it came on before the engine actually started. Driving to work, there was no error.
The AA man, reset all the warnings with the exception of the clutch error which cannot be reset apparently. But, he wrote them down and presented it to Honda.
Honda now tell me my warranty for the engine and gearbox has been invalidated!!!!!!! I am astounded, as I have never overrevved the car, or missed a gear changing down.
What on earth do I do now? Interestingly, the oil error was resolved by them downloading a software update, as it was a bug. As I have NEVER overrevved the engine, I think this error must be incorrect. They reckon it could have been in the system, and just 'decided' to come on. The car runs absolutely fine, there is no noticeable loss in power (although I am now reluctant to use full torque in case there is some damage).
I believe this is clearly an error with the error, but frustrated Honda can invalidate the warranty on something that software is saying, and in the same breath apply a software update to fix a bug with another erroneous error!!! They are going on the what the AA man said, and havent actually seen this error themselves, thanks to the AA man, he reset all the messages and has invalidated the warranty for me. nice one.
