  2. Inside Trunk Release Intermittent

    Sometimes the inside trunk release works & sometimes not. I pickup my wife from shopping & press the release & nothing happens. Engine was running & car in park. I press a few more times & then the trunk opens. I don’t use the inside release a lot but when I do it’s always random if it’s going...
  3. OBD2 software to read B & C trouble codes ?

    I have an OBD2 reader by BAFX and the Torque Pro Android software, but it only reads Powertrain trouble codes. Is there any Android software that will read the body and chassis codes, such as a bad wheel speed sensor? I’ve searched the forum & elsewhere but so far it appears any software just...

  5. Where to buy air filters online?

    I looked at some threads & a lot of people recommend OEM Honda engine air filters & cabin air filters. One local dealer doesn’t list any parts prices online & has 10% discount coupons. Another local dealer’s online sale price is higher than most online vendor’s list prices. Any recommendations...
  6. Compass suggestions?

    Anyone ever buy & use an add-on compass that doesn't look too out of place? Apparently you need the NAV option to get a compass. I never had NAV in any car & can't remember the last time I had a car without a compass. Even rental cars had a compass. I rarely need a compass but once in while it...
  7. Touch Up paint recommendations ?

    I washed the car & had the windshield wipers pulled away from the windshield. Then opened the hood & the left wiper arm scratched off some paint on the rear edge of the hood. Now I need to touch it up. How good is the Honda touch up paint from the dealer?
  8. Loose Mud Flap

    The right-front mud flap was loose at the bottom. Went to tighten the screw but it just spins. I removed the upper screw & it definitely bites into something. With the flap out of the way the lower screw just slides into the hole, there is no resistance. Is there supposed to be some kind of...

  10. 0-60 time in warm weather ?

    Last November I did some 0-60 testing using an OBD2 reader & the TorquePro app. I did four 0-60 runs, 2 on one day & 2 the following day. 7.67, 7.43, 7.38, 7.38 seconds. https://www.civicx.com/forum/threads/this-0-60-timer-works-quite-well.43503/ Thought I’d do a few runs today since the roads...
  11. B1 Maintenance Service ?

    I just got a B1 Maintenance Minder notification and I looked at what items are supposed to be serviced per the Owner's Manual. My dealer has an online "B Maintenance Service" discount coupon for $137.95 plus tax & hazmat. It includes "Cleaning/Lubrication of Brake Components" an item which I...
  12. Discount Service Coupons ?

    I got a B1 maintenance minder message so I need to take the Civic in for service. Are there any worthwhile Honda discount service coupons? I searched but didn't come across any, just my dealer ones. My dealer has a coupon for oil & filter for $46.95 ( tax included, reg price $51.95) and a B...
  13. Is salty water reused in car washes?

    Just thinking about winter & washing the car and remembered saving the links to these articles from last year. I found them & thought I’d pass along the information. Also did a cut/paste & posted the articles in case the links stopped working...
  14. Audio display slow to respond

    Sometimes I get in the car with the radio already on SXM and I want to change the channel right away but the system is not responsive. The display shows what channel I’m on & music is playing & the satellite icon indicates the radio is locked on. But clicking on the steering wheel channel...
  15. This 0-60 timer works quite well

    This is a short version of my experimentation & trials. I read good reviews about the BAFX OBD2 Bluetooth reader so I got one on Amazon. Then used the Torque Pro app which said it could use either GPS or the vehicle’s speed sensors for speed readouts. I was getting very slow 0-30 & 0-60 times...
  16. OBD2 scanner connector ?

    I just bought an OBD2 scanner & it doesn't seem to push on all the way. I have to really push hard to make a connection. If I drive a couple miles it stops working & I have to re-seat it. It looks like it should push on another 1/8" before it bottoms out on the OBD2 port. Either this is normal...
  17. Toggling between Android Auto & Audio ?

    When I go back & forth between Android Auto & Audio it takes a couple steps each way. For example if I'm displaying AA and want to view the audio screen, I have to tap an icon near the lower right of the AA. That takes me to the menu where I can select Audio. And going back to AA takes 2 steps...
  18. Octane article in magazine

    I just got the new Car & Driver magazine & they have an article on octane. They tested 4 different vehicles with the recommended grade & with 93 octane. They tested on a chassis dyno and for 0-60 and quarter mile times. All the vehicles had more horsepower with 93 octane and 3 out of 4 were...
  19. Android Auto with Audio ?

    I’ve been playing with Android Auto & it works quite well. Sometimes when toggling between AA and SiriusXM & going back to SXM there is a green horizontal AA status bar which briefly appears at the top of SXM screen. It would be nice if that green bar automatically appeared & stayed for a bit...
  20. Trim Piece - where does it go ?

    I opened the left/rear door of my 2018 Civic sedan & this black plastic trim piece fell on the ground. I looked & felt all around the door & jamb & just about everything below the belt line where the trim is black. Even looked around the front door area in case the piece bounced its way...
