Hey Culliard, a nice meaty response indeed. I just happen to have a unit sat RIGHT HERE under my monitor here that your more than welcome to hehehe >_<
Seriously though, your response is kind of good news to my ears. I have already had the oil pressure sensors replaced (£280), New battery (Yasua @ around £50 fitted), diagnostics with (supposed) firmware upgrade via honda (45 quid) along with the parasitic drain test via another mechanic (£50). About £420 all in and still the problem persists.
Not a massive amount to waste comparatively speaking (when placed next to many others peoples vehicular woes) but I can throw no more money on my car go at this time.
Lack of money makes for a gain of knowledge though, even if basic.. Now my wipers are playing the nice game of staying on when turned off and deciding to stop when they choose (usually mid screen) and thanks to civ-info I am already pondering ripping out that little spindle and cleaning it out.
My other gripe with the car is the high pressure pump playing up, meaning occasional fail on warm starts (meaning a parasitic drain is last thing I need) leaving me having to wait for the car to cool down before I can use it (has caused a right pain in the arse or two at petrol stations). Alas this problem cannot be solved cheap, I just hope it does not develop into a bigger issue.
