While drving the vehicle, the engine just quits. Sometimes it will stutter and quit and restart, or I will put it in neutral while coasting and restart. There are no engine codes for this problem.

While driving my Honda on the freeway two days after a heavy rain, I smelled a nauseating burning odor. I pressed the power window switch to lower windows. The passenger side front window stopped working. This had occurred some time ago with the driver side rear window. I checked Honda recalls and there is one that matches exactly my circumstances, 12-067, but my VIN is not eligible.the recall states that water can damage the power window switch, create a short circuit and melt connectors, possibly causing a fire. Tipton Honda, el cajon ca, technician found master switch internal circuit damage and unplugged it.he would have replaced it but tipton did not have the necessary parts. Not sure if the burning connectors constitute "a fire" or not.

Car starts without key when remote lock is used after driving. Does not have keyless start. Sometimes the headlights turn on also other times its just the engine. You have to put the key in the ignition and shift the gear to turn off. This has happened at least 10 times over the years. I took it to a Honda dealer and they told me it was impossible, could not happen and I was mistaken. I do have a video of one incident.

Subject: Window goes off track & malfunction even after replacing the power window switch & regulator. For about a year or so I've recurring problems with the window master power switch & regulator. Then, I thought it is caused by wear & tear. Therefore, I replaced the following parts thinking the problem would be solved: On January 28, 2011, the regulator for driver's side window was replaced by brand new part. On April 16,11 bought brand new window master power switch & replaced the old one a week later. Up until yesterday (09/30/11), the driver's side & the two back windows were working properly. But, the front passenger window is still not working. Yesterday, September 30, 2011, around 3.00 P. M., I pressed the power switch to open the the driver's side window, then I heard unusual sound and noticed that the window went off track. Since then every the window is off track.. then, I began to research online and found out the issue has been discussed by many people. Right now, two Honda dealerships told me I've to pay for fixing the problem. But, I disagree & I feel your office should impose for recall & Honda should be responsible for taking care of this problem for me. Below are some websites that I found about the subject matter: (1).
