BACKGROUND

Under certain circumstances, the vehicle may experience driveability issues, which may result in DTCs P0300 (random misfire detected), P0301 (No. 1 cylinder misfire detected), P0302 (No. 2 cylinder misfire detected), P0303 (No. 3 cylinder misfire detected), P0304 (No. 4 cylinder misfire detected), or P0172 (fuel system too rich) or a whirling noise coming from the engine compartment.

NOTE

Check to see if the vehicle was repaired as stated in S/B 19-012. If a repair was completed as stated in S/B 19-012, see CORRECTIVE ACTION to determine if further action is necessary.

To ensure customer confidence in our product, Honda is extending the powertrain warranty from the original 5 years/ 60,000 miles to 6 years with unlimited mileage from the original sale date. This warranty extension applies to any engine components, such as camshafts, rocker arm assemblies, or spark plugs, requiring repair due to damage resulting from those concerns identified in the first paragraph. The ECU and TCM software is covered under the vehicle’s emissions warranty beyond 6 years. Check page 5 for further details.

This warranty extension will not apply to any vehicle that has ever been declared a total loss or sold for salvage by a financial institution or insurer, or has a branded or similar title under any state’s law. This does not affect emission warranties.

 

POSSIBLE CAUSE

Based on certain driving patterns and environmental factors, the DTC’s stated above may be set or a whirling noise may occur.

 

CORRECTIVE ACTION

If misfire (P0300, P0301, P0302, P0303, P0304) or fuel system too rich (P0172) DTCs are set, do REPAIR PROCEDURE A. If there is a whirling noise coming from the engine compartment, do REPAIR PROCEDURE B.

In some cases, misfire DTCs may return. If that happens, go to SPARK PLUG INSPECTION PROCEDURE.

i-HDS Diagnostic Software and J2534 Reprogramming Software

 

Honda J2534 Pass-Thru User Guide

Honda J2534 Pass-Thru Software Download

Latest ECU Software

 

Vehicle Communication Interfaces (VCI)

The i-HDS software supports the use of a generic pass-thru VCI that is compliant with SAE J2534-1 and J2534-2. However, Honda recommends the Denso DST-i or the Bosch MVCI for use on Honda and Acura vehicles, as Honda has worked closely with these manufacturers to ensure their hardware and our software interact safely and within the J2534-1 and -2 specifications, for both diagnostics and reprogramming. If you choose to use a generic VCI, please carefully consider the customer and technical support options you will receive from your chosen device supplier. Honda does not provide technical or customer support for generic VCI devices.

The VCI Application Table below lists devices that either are approved and supported by Honda or are known to have completed and passed an independent, exhaustive validation program with our i-HDS software suite.

Manufacturer Version Information Notes VCI Name
Firmware J2534 API
DENSO 2.00.0010* 04.04 This is the current generation VCI used by Honda and Acura dealers. Honda routinely validates the functionality and provides customer support for this device. DST-i
Bosch 3.01.54* 04.04 This is the previous generation VCI used by Honda and Acura dealers. Honda routinely validates the functionality and provides customer support for this device. MVCI
Drew Technologies 1.7.7** 04.04 This company has completed an independent i-HDS validation and claims it to function with the i-HDS software. Honda does not provide ongoing validation, nor customer support for this device. MongoosePro Honda
