Re: Impending Forum Milestone

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...

Re: Technology Backfire?

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...

Fastnacht loosly translated is ''fast-not''.
Today it's the donut, tomorrow the hole.
Our local VFD is known best for bingo and blocking traffic :shock:

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...

Re: Technology Backfire?

Thanks, but It's not the A/C relay. I've been through that one in an '09' CRV. It stuck, the A/C compressor kept running and it popped the pressure relief. A new $4 relay and a shot of Freon and it was good ... until it was totaled! Looking at the owner's manual online, since the glove box version i...

Re: Technology Backfire?

Well this sure is getting some attention and that's great!. We are having snow and ice now but when the weather clears some I'll look into numbers on the circuits that contribute to the drain. The only thing not OEM in this car is the gas, so an add-on is not causing a problem. Yes, the cheap 'batte...

Re: Technology Backfire?

Yes, all I found were the earlier complaints and some options like the switch. I plan on getting the switch and modifying it to take current readings by putting the meter accross the switch then opening it to take current readings instead of breaking the connection and giving 30 computers belly ache...

Re: Technology Backfire?

Well, until I do some tests, hopefully this weekend weather permitting, I only have their claim that the 'computers' are drawing the current, by design, and to learn to live with it! I hope Honda Corporate sheds some light on this, we really like this 'comfuser-on-wheels' :???:
