Top 5 Problems Honda Accord Sedan 7th Generation 2003-07

Created on: 2021-02-08

Andy explains the most common problems we have found with the 2003 to 2007 Accord, and he offers tips on how you can handle those problems yourself!

In this video, we're going over the top five problems on the 7th-Generation Honda Accord. Number one, the ignition switch. Now the symptom you're gonna have with the bad ignition switch is the vehicle won't start. The ignition switch is located at the base of the lock cylinder housing so pretty much on the other side of this. If your vehicle doesn't start, it's always a good idea to check with the battery first, but it's probably the ignition switch.

Number two, door latch actuators. Now, you may have many different symptoms with the door latch actuator where the doors won't lock or unlock, and sometimes they may lock and unlock on their own. And a lot of times the problems are intermittent. The latch actuator is attached to the lock latch assembly, but it is sold separately.

Number three, the taillights. On the backside of the taillight, there is a gasket. And if that gasket gets brittle, sometimes water can enter the taillight. And, at that point, the tail light got to be replaced.

Number four, the engine mounts. You may notice while you're driving along and you come to a stoplight and the vehicle sitting there idling that it's vibrating excessively. That could be due to the engine mounts. Now, the engine mounts located right here. There's one at the front of the engine, there's one down below. There is a mount in the back here and is also one under that airbox. Over time, those mounts get brittle, and they just need to be replaced.

Number five, the automatic transmission. You may notice that you have some harsh shifting and the check engine light with the engine-like flashing. Now, it could be dirty transmission fluid or even low transmission fluid so you're gonna wanna have that checked out before you automatically think it needs a transmission replacement. But in the event that that's not the case, it's probably got internal transmission failure, and it's gonna need to be addressed.

So those are our top five problems on this Honda Accord. Overall, these are really good cars. If you enjoyed this video or it helped you out, make sure you subscribe to our channel. Ring that bell. Turn on all notifications so you don't miss any of our videos.
