Potential Fire Hazzard
I have a new Civic Type S 1.8 i-vtec, 2 months old now with 1932 miles. Problem I'm having just started a few days ago, there seems to be like electrical sparking from behind the dash followed by a sound like the wiring is frying and the smell you get when you plug in a new electrical appliance for the first time. This crackling and sparking noise is there about 70% of the time and since this started, I am now getting a massive static charge building up on the car. Took it to a mate of mine who is an auto spark, he confirms that it is definately electrical arcing, and potential for the car to go on fire. Told me to get it back to Honda asap. Dealer closed for easter holidays, anyone got similar problems. Has ipod adapter and ambient blue lighting fitted.
