Hi
Not sure if anyone can help me but I seem to have a problem:confused:
Started with having a Parasitic Battery drain traced to the Bluetooth Module, (drawing 0.84a. with everything off). Removed Module and everything was fine, after 2 days decided to re-fit module , no drain thought it was sorted. Just jumped in car started up, ESP warning light came on no "power steering", turned off and restarted all ok, then whilst driving offside HID light kept flickering.
could the Bluetooth Module be causing this or something more serious?

Thanks

Hi, sorry I can not help, but I bought my car 2006 ex about 2 months ago. Which I soon realised the voice reconition wasn't working. However tonight I was fitting a 3.5mm aux lead in the back of the radio which I have to remove the panels. Where I found the bluetooth module was unplugged. I have connected it back up and everything works fine. Now after reading the forums I am starting to think I might need to disconnect it.
Anyone help us on this issue please :p

Replaced module from breakers 2 days ago, everything seems to be working as it should, no eps problems or flickering hid's. Fingers crossed it will stay like this.

Oh good! I may have to look into that. I only reconnected mine tonight for the first time since owning the car. I have driven it only for like ten mins. Everything seemed fine. I will see how it goes.
Thanks for letting me know though

Cheers
Jamie

My 2006 2.2 EX is on its' third bluetooth module, due to parasitic drain causing flat batteries after 2-3 days of no use.

The bluetooth modules were replaced a long time after the MICU was replaced for apparently the same reason.

EPS has been another known issue for 06 models, so your bluetooth module/drain issue might be unrelated to the EPS - if the EPS fails again, get it checked out! My EPS module was replaced a long time back.

HI, I?ve an 08 1.8 petrol Civic, had battery drain issues. It was the Bluetooth unit. Disconnected and now no drain.

I have installed the Xcarlink Bluetooth unit (was able to do this myself with no previous experience of such a task) allows music streaming plus call handling. £130 ish with the Honda y cable required for the ex with sat nav.

Having done some research this is the best value fix. ( with the bonus of being able to stream music) ??
