Good morning,

I have a 2008 8G UK Honda Civic. The car developed an intermittent fault whereby the Sat Nav and radio, clock. temp display and climate only powers up sometimes on startup, other times after 5 or 10 minutes. It did always come on though (straight away or eventually).
The vehicle went in to Honda to be checked out via Insurance however Honda have refused to do any further work due to a bootleg disc (not original) which must have been there prior to when I purchased the vehicle.
Since the car has come back from Honda none of the above systems come on at all.
I do not know what they have disabled, what fuse they could have removed or relay.
These are obviously the first things to check however could somebody offer me some guidance as to what fuses I need to check and what relay?
Any help would would be greatly appreciated. I have no power running to the display where the clock time normally is or the DVD player.

Pictures would really help me. I feel a beer coming your way.

Many thanks in advance,

From confused.com :)

Hi thanks Paul. Today the Sat Nav and climate etc decided to work. I changed the fuse anyway, all was working and again it is off. There is definitely in an intermittent fault which I am now thinking could be a sticking relay?

Would you happen to know which relay and where this would be? Any other suggestions?

Many thanks :)

When it's not working, is it just the display that doesn't light up, or do you not get sound from the radio too? I wonder if it could be a loose connection somewhere?

Hi Paul,

No sound or a display. Its a total loss of power to associated systems ie clock, radio, sat nav and the fan and climate/air con appear to be linked. When it comes on then all systems come back on.
They could all be OK on start up then 80% of the time, nothing. Then after driving, it could be 2 minutes up to 30 minutes until anything decides to come on.

Any other ideas? I clearly need an auto electrician however if I can save a few quid and rectify myself obviously that would be better.

Thanks.

Hi all, I have a 2007 Civic Type R FN2 with the same problem. Turn the ignition on and the radio will work, the clock display and accessory and cigarette lighter sockets all work. Start the car and they all go off and do not come on again for anything between 10 seconds and 5 minutes. The only common component is the acc cut relay which I need to replace.

Does anyone know where this relay is located?

Thank you
