Nice... Iím just not a fan of dark wheels on at color vehicle. It reminds me of the late 90s and early 2000s when the black wheel/polished lip crazy was going on and it made the wheels look smaller than they were.

After LED fogs and my Morimoto projector retrofit


A better shot with the shaved Element badge. Iím going to put the OEM wing on it soon now that I found one once itís painted.

Yesterday, Sunday I replaced the knock sensor (from underneath) and installed new front pads and rotors. 166,761 miles.
Hoping the check engine light will go away after a few drives.

I think you got your money's worth out of the battery...

Thanks for documenting for so many years...
It's cool to see the transitions (in vehicle and life).

I find myself strangely transfixed on anything that compresses or expands time...
(time lapse photography, ultra high speed camera making slow mo video, etc.)
This thread has that same quality... taking over a decade of history and compressing it.

Cheers!

That's awesome, Volt! I had to replace my Knock Sensor around 150k and did the starter at the same time. Starter was a bit overdue. I hope I never have to replace another starter in that car again. Took me and my buddy 4-5 hours about 8 months ago.

I'll be replacing my gauge cluster here in a few days with a new OEM one. I've had the "Green key immobilizer, smack the dash, crank but no start, gauges not working randomly" issue for about 2 years now. Replaced starter, alternator, battery, ignition switch, fuel relay fuses, etc. to no avail. It's been driving me insane. The cluster is basically the last thing I can try, and since it's running me a hefty $397, it's the final straw for me on this car. Since smacking the dash is getting progressively less-effective, I can't take the chance of being stranded on a long trip. Makes me sad because it's mechanically sound and is in fantastic shape at 159k and 16 years old... Electrical issues drive me up the wall!

the green key means that the immobilizer that is built into the ignition switch is not reading the key properly try switching keys as far as the car not turning over this green light has nothing to do with it but if the car is turning over and not starting it means that the immob. is not reading the key again try switching keys if this doesnt work then the key or keys have to be reprogramed at a honda dealer if you have to do this make sure you take all of the keys to that car

The green key icon issue on 03s is relatively know problem and he's on the right track looking to fix/replace the cluster.

Have you pulled the cluster before? Try messing around with the plugs/tabs in the back of it... $400 is a lot of money.

Yeah, it's cool looking back through the years. Never really thought about what this thread will turn into, but 40+ pages later here we are
