  1. Low power and maybe transmission issues.

    Problems & Issues
    I have a 2004 Element, it’s at 191,000 miles and is quite literally falling apart. In the last three weeks I’ve had to replace spark plugs, ignition coils, o2 sensors, catalytic converter, fuel pump, and my muffler/tail pipe (the tail pipe literally fell off in my driveway due to a rusty...
  2. How can I get 120V power into Element

    Do-It-Yourself / Mods
    It is quite likely I will be living out of my Element part time for awhile. I am wondering what is the best way to get an extension cord into the vehicle that I don't have to have an open window. A couple weeks ago I slept in it and had a heater plugged in. The cord was thin enough that it...

  4. Power Loss - Not As Simple As A Dead Battery

    Problems & Issues
    This has happened before to me and happened again last night where I go to start my Element and nothing. No lights, no noises, completely dead no power from the battery. I know this because I have to reset my radio clock when it happens. The strange part is when I connect the jumper leads to...
  5. AUX Socket 12V power lost

    For the second time, the AUX SOCKET power plug in front console and rear cargo area has failed on my 2005 Honda Element LE. The first time under warranty, the dealer related that the failure was in an electrical panel behind the glove box, but it was so long ago I've forgotten anything more...

    Problems & Issues
    So, my factory radio had to be replaced. I can't get that to work, even though it should be working (wiring seems to be solid). the problem has grown to several electrical problems. I replaced two blown fuses, on on the radio power, and one on the rear accessory adapter (which was already...

    Problems & Issues
    Hello. I've been trolling for a while and I've searched and can't find anything on this so I finally joined to ask. So the other day I was in a rush and had a minor brain lapse and tried to jump off my e and hooked the cables up backwards.... They were connected for 5 or 10 seconds before I...
  9. Which fuses power off with the car?

    I'm planning to add an extra outlet to my E, and I am planning to put it (with an add-a-fuse) to one of the unused spots in the fusebox, as I am planning to attach a triple outlet, and i don't think wiring it in with the rear outlet would be good (4 outlets on one fuse...). My question is, how...
  10. ACC Power and Continuous Power in Rear Cargo Area

    Mobile Electronics
    I have an application that requires continuous power and ignition sense in the rear of my Element. I know I can use the 12v port in the rear for ignition sense. And I know I can mod the 12v port in the rear for continuous power. But I need both. :-) I'm trying to avoid running additional...

  12. How to: install a USB port to charge Garmin

    Do-It-Yourself / Mods
    I got a Garmin 260W GPS device for Xmas. It's great, but I absolutely hate the bulky car charging unit that plugs in to the "formerly known as a cigarette lighter." and the cable stretching accross the car. Is there a way to install a female USB port in the driver's side dash so I don't have...
  13. Foglight Mod

    Do-It-Yourself / Mods
    I've just ordered foglights for my '07 Sc! While reading the installation instructions, I saw that they only come on with the low beams. I'm sure there's a way to allow them come on with the parking lights and hi-beams with a wire splice. Has anyone done his mod? If so, which wires need...
  14. where can I get 12v when ign is on

    Mobile Electronics
    I need to install a amateur radio and need 12 power but only when the ignition is on. As the radio draws heavy amp. We use what's called a 'A Relay'. When the ignition comes on, it will energize the relay which has big wire connection to the battery. When ignition is off, the relay drops out...

    Problems & Issues
    I have on '03 Element EX with 98,000 miles. Last fall, it started exhibiting a strange behavior that went away after a week and hasn't occurred again until last week. Now it's happening all the time and I need to fix it. I just wonder if any of you have any idea what might be happening...

    Ask The Dealer
    Is it possible to "stiffen-up" the power steering? I'm used to no power steering and like alittle less "assist". Thanks, Jed

    Do-It-Yourself / Mods
    Tired of having to reprogram/restart my portable nav unit each time I restarted the E, I was looking for an easy way to mod the front accessory outlet to be constantly hot. I also had a few other parameters: 1. Front outlet always hot 2. Rear outlet on only with ignition switched to ON or...
  18. Adding a power outlet (front)

    Do-It-Yourself / Mods
    Has anyone considered putting in extra 12-volt outlets? I would like to add some to my E but would rather go with a cleaner stock look rather than those you can buy at Wal-Mart. I haven't gotten into the dash but it seems maybe there would be enough space on the driver's side, opposite the...
