  1. Immobilizer issue. Not cluster related. HELP!!!

    Problems & Issues
    Immobilizer woes. Pretty much at a loss. 07 Element LX 5 spd 156k Background: First time element owner! Bought car last summer with bad top end. Limped home on 3 cylinders and parked. Pulled head and had valve job done (2 burnt valves). Car sat with no battery for 8 months. Recently buttoned...
  2. '05 cranks but will not start. Not the instrument cluster

    Problems & Issues
    I've read all the immobilizer posts but everyone's symptoms seem to vary enough for me to not be able to extract a solid diagnosis. Here is my issue: 2005 with 200k miles on it. Intermittently (once or twice a day) the engine will crank but the car won't start. Flashing green key symbol when...
  3. Green key light, bang on dash gets it started

    Maintenance and Service
    So I had a problem not starting the other day, and saw that the immobilizer light was on. I came in and read here about how it can be caused by some loose connection somewhere behind the dash. I went back out, banged down on my dashboard, and she started right up. It happened again today! Now...
  4. Immobilizer problem?

    Problems & Issues
    I apparently have the same issue with the dash/cluster/immobilizer/AC as many other people here. However, no one has (for years) posted a solution, and this girl is reaching her limits! I can deal with a lot of things, but summer is approaching, and my baby boy needs AC... much less us...
  5. Imobilizer system engages without warning

    Problems & Issues
    I have a reoccurring problem with the horn blaring/lights flashing as if my '07 SC thinks its being stolen. This problem doesn't stop by using the remote, putting the key in the door, or even putting the key in the ignition. Radio, lights, windows, all work fine but the engine won't attempt to...
  6. 2003 Honda Element EX Electrical Issue...?

    Problems & Issues
    The Element basically starts when it feels like it :razz: No, but there doesn't seem to be a discernible common denominator for why it won't start, when it won't start. We replaced the starter less than 6 mths and just replaced the battery less than a mth ago. The possibility of a bad solenoid...
  7. HELP!!! 2004 Element Won't Start

    Problems & Issues
    Hello, I purchased my 2004 EX about three months ago and when I bought it some of the dash lights were not working. I finally found time to look in the service manual I bought to see what needed to be done. Well, I took it apart as instructed and then put it all back together. Then I moved...
  8. 2005 EX Alarm Issue in Cold Weather

    Problems & Issues
    Hi, EOC! I purchased this Element used a couple of years ago, and I have a very annoying issue with my alarm system. If the temperature drops into the mid to low 20's, when I turn my ignition on, the alarm sounds for a long amount of time and the car won't start. Repeated attempts simply set it...
  9. Alarm light?

    Miscellaneous / General Element Discussions
    I just got an 05 EX 2WD AT and I've noticed that when I arm the alarm, a blue light flashes underneath the dash, mounted on the removable panel below the steering wheel. There seems to be a button on the back but when I pushed it it didn't seem to do anything. Its also frustrating that if I'm...
