Inconsistent Warning Lights
To be fair, this problem is more annoying than a potential mechanical issue. The warning lights on the Honda Accord can turn on, making your dashboard light up like a Christmas tree. Many drivers will find comfort in knowing there might not actually be a problem with the car – but you should get it checked out anyway because lights coming in indicate a potential sensor issue.
At Holland Auto Care, we are prepared to test out your vehicles and dive in to find the source of the problem. Today’s vehicles are a bit complex with many systems controlled by sensors and computers, and our crew can figure out which one is sending the signal.
Ignition Switch Failure
Honda Accord’s have been known to have premature failure of the ignition switch. The ignition switch is a fairly simple device which turns your key or push button start actions into the engine firing on.
Fortunately, the ignition switch doesn’t tend to fail suddenly. You’ll notice the key having a harder time starting gradually. When this starts to happen – don’t ignore it. Take it us to at Holland Auto and we’ll check to see if the issue is within your battery system a problem with the ignition switch, or even both.
We’ve found customers think simple car starting issues are the most annoying because they often seem simple – but they can ruin your day quickly when your Accord won’t start at all.
Among the parts of your brake system which can get worn out are the rotors, which are tasked with holding your brakes in place and ensuring they are ready to help your Accord stop. In the case of the Accord, the rotors can get warped, causing the brakes to function improperly and become louder and more likely to vibrate when in use.
While this is a specific issue, you should bring your vehicle in for service right away.
Power Steering Problems
This Accord problem applies more to older vehicles made before 2010, but it is persistent and can lead to bigger problems. The o-rings which are installed near high and low-pressure systems within the power steering system can become degraded and follow air to leak in. Power steering is a bit touchy, so any amount of hair isn’t great because excess air can make it very difficult for power steering to work.
The result is a very hard time turning the wheel completely, especially when driving slowly. If your steering wheel is becoming less responsive, bring it in right away. This issue can be especially dangerous at low speeds because the wheels will respond even slower.
The Honda Accord is a reliable, everyday driver. We can appreciate the Honda Accord because it keeps our customers on the road for a long time, so we know the vehicle quite well! We hope if you find yourself having issues with your Accord, or are looking for a new partner in basic maintenance, you’ll bring it by our shop to see!
