CEL P0420. Per Honda SM 100% CAT, wanted $1,500. Per My debug & indp shop likely 1 of the 02 (A/F) sensors and NOT the cat. Shop thought front 02 sensor, I thought rear 02. I buy OEM parts. Did front sensor first. Not it. 2 weeks later, rear 02 sensor replaced. THIS WAS IT! Shop likes to replace cat bc this sensor rusts to it, but only need new sensor. P0420 not always the CAT. Check fuel inj. temp sender, coolant temp, front A/F or 02 sensor and rear 02 (mose likely).

Rear, right, door lock actuator, was intermittent, eventually, was failing reliably.

Occupant position sensor, passengers seat, replaced, extended warranty repair. Dealer thinks problem caused by my HAM Radio equipment, despite, side air bag warning light lights, only if it's RAINING. Unknown if repair successful, yet.

This appears to be somewhat common: P0700, P1739. No CEL/MIL. I check for codes at fuel up (ScanGage2). I see this code, every 1-2 years. I think it a computer bug. ECU thinks it should see a response in x-seconds, and not happen in time...

Rear hydrologic vacuum ctrl motor mount.Clunk noise after engine starts,esp in the morning.Vibration,odd feeling during hard acceleration,like the engine is moving around.After replacement,feels much smother. 170 for part, 200 to replace. Door,windows,locks,and alarm malfunctioning. Fix attempts: Reset computer, not it. Disconnected negative battery terminal, waited 3 minutes, then reconnected. Now works fine. May have been related to a strong magnet set on passengers seat? 
Sep 2011

The Drivers side door lock solenoid become intermittent, replaced... P401 and sometimes P402 (insufficient flow/ insufficient (EGR valve) lift). I ran a 3/16 SS cable as root-rooter-line and app specific carbon cleaner, up toughs the intake plenum and back towards the head to the intake runners via the removed EGR (the ports). And later replaced the EGR its self, as well. Problem (codes) not returned so far...

I replaced the alternator with a new part and the part was substandard (could not handle AC and head lights at the same time, even though rated for 140 Amps). I returned it and bought another one (also 140A), this time it was re-manufactured. This next one was better, but worse than the factory part. I researched the market and found that only junk Chinese parts were available (Napa, O‚ÄôReilly, etc). Decided to get my original alternator (90A) rebuilt. This cost more, but now it works better than it did when it new (~100-110A). I reported this to two different Govt agencies (about the misrepresented current ratings, and replacement part not safe/ working). Nether to date, have contacted me or acknowledged my reports...

VTEC Spool Valve sensor/solenoid, was leaking engine oil. Whole part was replaced (this included the gaskets). The paint and or clear coat is going bad. Undecided if I'll get the engine hood repainted. Last year a friend repainted my roof. Unknown caused oil loss. Just repaired VTEC sensor leak. Might or might not be that. Car now takes 1 quart of oil per 300-900 Miles. Might be valve glide seals (stem seal) or engine rings. This along with all the other issues, I might begin to look for another car.

The transmission completely failed and the D4 light began blinking. Due to engine also burning oil, decided not to repair. The car had been burning oil, so I had them do a compression test. Cylinder 1 barely passed, 2 was better, 3 and 4 were fine. Since it essentially meant an engine rebuild, I decided not to repair.

As is common on this vintage of Honda Accord, the transmission was on its way to complete failure. Dealer replaced @ Honda's cost as part of a special extended warranty granted to all 2001 Accord owners for 93 months or 109K miles (car is 92 months old). SRS warning light indicated that the driver's seat belt buckle had a problem. Seatbelts are lifetime warranted on Honda's, so dealer replaced @ Honda's cost. Main relay was on the way to failing (causing car to intermittently not start). Common problem on many Hondas. Total repair for part ($70) and labor ($100) including tax. This is the only repair we ever had to "pay for" on the car in 92 mo/66K miles.
