CBF600S 2007 - fan relay
Mon, 17 February 2020 12:13
My cooling fan stopped coming on when the engine gets hot. The fan works when earthed so the issue lies elsewhere. I've replaced the radiator switch and the thermostat. All that's left is the grounding wire for the fan (I think) and the relay. I have located the grounding wire but I have no idea where the relay is. Can anyone help?
I've had a look in my Haynes but either I'm blind or its not in there.
How do you disable HFT phone book system

I own a 2012 Honda Accord euro with a B type HFT

The phonebook system drives me crazy. Every time I invoke Siri, I have to go through the process of denying the addition to the phonebook. Drives me crackers.
Is there anyway to disable this system or at the very least stop these annoying prompts?
ECM Surge - Keeps Burning
Sun, 02 February 2020 09:58
This thread is for electric gurus! I've replaced the ECM of my 2004 CBR600RR twice now, something is surging and keeps frying them.
It all started with very poor idle, very rich conditions and 4 errors on the MIL System:
1 Blink: MAP Sensor Malfunction
7 Blinks: ECT Sensor Malfunction
8 Blinks: TPS Sensor Malfunction
9 Blinks: IAT Sensor Malfunction
I went through all steps to troubleshoot these errors in the service manual: continuity, voltage measures, resistances etc. Most results end with "Replace the ECM".
When I should read about 5V coming out of the ECM, I read 0V.
So, I replaced the ECM. The bike started right up and run great for a few miles with no more error codes...until it died. Again.
FI MIL Light blinking like before. Back to square 1.
I'm guessing that something is surging the ECM, like a ground or a solenoid shorting. Bypassing any fuse. The rectifier is under specs and the stator sends 13.9V at 5,000rpm. All good there.
I'm quite mechanically inclined but this time, I'm baffled...
Any help is greatly appreciated!

Considering I rarely get out these days for numerous reasons like 6/12ths of the year its not warm and when it is I'm often busy or just can't be arsed to tog up, it got me thinking how many miles do you do roughly a year on your bike(s) and also other rough stats such as perhaps you all time record year (rough year/rough miles) or have you ever got the odometer on a bike to pass 99,999 miles etc etc

Me, I did <1000 last year and the year before and want to do more this year and right now while typing and not having ridden since the end of Sept I feel like I will end up doing more but then Spring/Summers arrives and the things in the first sentence get in the way
I suspect my record on a bike is about 6/7000 in a year around the 1998-2001 which included a few Europe trips, out almost every sat or Sunday in the summer for 100-200 miles to the coast or North Yorks/Lakes, often one evening a week & not really stopping in winter so long as the roads were dry enough to get some grip.
Next scary thought

Good old DVSA are now looking at changing the mot status again, basically to make vehicles over 40 years old excempt. Possibly 30 years but UK government favour 40 years in line with tax exemption. Could all come into law in 2018. At the moment it is vehicles before 1960.
Unfortunately, these crap unconnected link removed by admin good folk do not understand corrosion. The belief id that foilk that own these things know how to look after them and will rectify any problems. Pre 1960 vehicles are less common, but knowing some of the owners, it is frightning. The 40 year rule allows lots of big engined cars that were produced in the worst years of corrosion, even more worrying
Doing MoT testing and seeing cars from this era is quite worrying. If/when its approived, beware and avoid old vehicles on the road. Consultation time is only a week and I only saw the info on an MoT forum.
