Nope.
That's pretty much a Ford thing.


Start at square one and diagnose for a no-start.

Well, I'll be darned. This is the first I have heard of it.
We don't get that feature in the US.

Did the owners manual tell about it?

No owner manual, i asked a honda employee, he led me straight to the switch, car is now running. If i was you i would look behind the glove box out of curiousity, left hand side of the glove box, press the sides on the glove box in and let it flip down. It would be interested to see if its there, maybe the US dealers and technicians didnt want to let you know about it. Its a black relay about 2 inches long 1 inch wide, with a rubber cover on top, thats your reset button.

hummmm well the fuel pump relay is in that location. perhaps the uk relay's are connected to a velocimeter to turn the fuel pump off on impact.

I don't get to see them foreign cars like that one there.




Hey, I learn all the time.
If I lose the ability to learn, I'm dead.
If I couldn't learn, then I might as well do roofing or upholstery...That technology doesn't seen to change much at all.

Or..
For every new thing learned, something must be forgotten. The human brain can only hold so much.
