Re: Diode forward/reverse resistance measurement

I'm not sure if this discussion is about component specifications or troubleshooting. Curve tracers and component testers are needed for specification evaluation, but a good front to back ratio usually tells the story for open/short for troubleshooting.

Re: Technology Backfire?

Our 2019 CRV failed to start only one time so far, and it has been parked several days straight without use. It seems that Honda is quite clueless and so far the Honda community is almost as bad. There is talk about software updates that don't exist, keeping a full tank of gas, or stopping then star...

Re: Technology Backfire?

hacklesup I agree that the measured voltage drop across the fuse could be quite low, but any voltage drop would indicate a suspicious load. The value read is a relative indication, and probably could not be used to calculate the actual current. I also agree it's a possible shot in the dark, but bett...

Re: Technology Backfire?

Hi all, I've been behind the 8-ball lately and there has been no time to collect readings from that new Honda, but then it hasn't been parked as long so there has been no starting issue. Some thoughts are forming and the single big question is ..'Why do all these various systems need to be powered w...

It could be a dubious honor, except that 'dacflyer's content sure is better"
Congrats!

Re: Odd Commercial Products.........

This may be considered a semi-commercial product, but it does have a bit of interest. Years ago a friend's daughter was setting up a dorm room at an older college whose electrical system was not renovated to modern standards. One of the requirements was a refrigerator and microwave could be used in ...

Re: Technology Backfire?

haklesup, You are right. I don't plan on pulling fuses at first. I got a battery terminal switch and modified it for a secure connection of the ammeter. Once it is installed and the car gets out of it's agitated state, I can connect the ammeter, open the switch and make current measurements while th...

Nope....not old....Older! I'm at the point in life where I'm too old for some things, and not old enough for the rest, but not yet at the point of buying half cups of coffee! Wow, we're up and it's late. I guess we missed bed check! :???: What's odd with this CRV's lighting is that there is LED in m...

Re: Technology Backfire?

By your succinct advice, methinks you have traveled this road before.

I keep my Doans, in the small green metal tube, in the drawer with Sucrets, Bag Balm and a red rubber thingie with a long hose.
Think they are still good? :razz:

Re: Technology Backfire?

Thanks for the ideas. It looks like this week's time and temperature may be good for snooping out the gremlins. With all those fuses, it might take a jug of coffee and back pain pills! I made a spreadsheet from the owner manual information so I can keep track of who is doing what, then it may be eas...

Re: Odd Commercial Products.........

No pictures to post but I remember the wide array of TV antennas, set top and outdoor years ago. They went from a bare rod to a load of bed springs, with switches, 'tuning knobs' and whatever, including aluminum foil flags, all in the quest of the Holy Grail of TV viewing. In spite of all the techno...

Re: Odd Commercial Products.........

About that pancake maker... Holiday Inn Express has them in all the ones we've stayed. It works well and makes pretty good pancakes. The batter is bagged, the pancake drops onto a heated conveyor baking one side then flips over at the end to do the other side on another conveyor . Their units have n...
