I apologise for gate crashing a Civic board when I own an 04 Accord Tourer but this is a cry for help to Pottsy as he seems like the only genius on any forum that has come across my problem and might know how to sort it!



Since I privately bought a 2004 Accord Tourer Executive CDTI back on 23/09/11 I've had to have the key recoded, an ECU update and a new 680 amp battery fitted with my local Honda dealer on 03/11/11 after a full diagnostic check, but a week later I am getting the intermittent flashing Green Key Light again, along with the handbrake, tailgate and coil light on dashboard when vehicle is locked, stationery and key removed. Have to leave car unlocked otherwise I get the following problems:

• Immobiliser is draining the battery.

• Central locking intermittently working when using key.

• Indicator and side lights start flashing (but no alarm sound). Car does not know whether it's locked/open and therefore arming/disarming itself.

• Passenger side back window has started opening by itself. Could it be a faulty solenoid?

• If car locked and key removed from ignition can still open the electric windows.

My local Honda dealer has said I now need a "Gauge Control Module" (I only know what this is cos of Pottsy) and they are getting back to me with a price, do you really think this is what's causing my problem with the flashing green key et al or should I insist on waiting till the Master Honda Technician is next in Swansea?

Many thanks in advance!

Following on from my problems earlier:

Intermittent flashing Green Key Light, along with the handbrake, tailgate and coil light on dashboard when vehicle is locked, stationery and key removed.
Immobiliser is draining the battery.
Central locking intermittently working when using key.
Indicator and side lights start flashing (but no alarm sound). Car does not know whether it's locked/open and therefore arming/disarming itself.
Passenger side back window has started opening by itself. Could it be a faulty solenoid?
If car locked and key removed from ignition can still open the electric windows (is this normal?)


I now have very little faith in my local Swansea Honda Dealer as 1st time I took my 04 Accord CDTI Tourer in they told me it was a keycode, 2nd time it was a new battery and ECU update (£180 so far), and now 3rd time their telling me it needs a new "Gauge Control Module" at £703 + £140 labour which may or may not resolve the other 2 faults of glow plug module 2 & 3 not working!!! To top it all off when driving it home from there last night my Engine Maintenance light was on and I can't go over 2000 revs or get Cruise Ctrl to work (never had this prob ** only since they've been looking at it)!!!!

Anyway I've managed to track down Honda part No: 78120-SEG-E11 (METER ASSY., SPEED & TACHO & FUEL & TEMPERATURE) from a Scrappy at £75 but does anyone know if it will work properly if I get a car electrician to fit it or do I have to go through a Honda Dealer/Specialist?? I'm at my wits end!
