    Thoughts

    My Bird is out of commission for a couple of weeks, Mr Honda dealer is going to look at it. My local mechanic is as baffled as I am!

    Bird no starty, everything works except pump priming and key logo lit on dash, 99 FI.

    Transponder or ECU? All loom links seem to check out as solid. So, Honda can't look at it for 2 weeks and I have re-booked ferry to France for the car (sob, sob).

    Thoughts ... I used a hand held LED lamp with a powerful magnet on the back for hooking on various places. I may have laid it on the ECU, cos all bodywork was stripped off, or on the key transponder. May this have wiped out and programming to or from the key??

    Any thoughts welcome.

    Re: Thoughts

    hey fellow Dorset man, off to France myself next Saturday morning for an annual 'Croissant Tour' with some mates, have you checked all the fuses and relays under the seat, also there was that thing with the loom, the factory initialisation port ( my term) that often wasn't sealed well against the elements, you could do a search on here, I think that sent the efi into some kind of a fit. I expect some one will be along with greater knowledge than mine.

    Done all of the above and everything the crew have thought up, no joy even my mechanic is baffled. Going to the local dealer for ECU check and transponder pull apart. Lets hope it's not mega bucks.....
