I could do with a little help from the experts. For some time I've been using a copy of the Honda HIM, I connected it today and it has damaged the system. The lesson has been learnt, and so I post this both as a warning to others, and to ask for help. I'll accept now it wasn't the smartest move, so don't need too much vilification here. Whilst it worked (I've been using it every so often for about 3 years), it seemed a good thing to have, now it definitely doesn't. If you are considering getting any kind of 'copy' diagnostics hardware, please learn from my misfortune and don't, it really can damage your car. With that out of the way, the symptoms are that the dash lights flash when the ignition is turned on, and the LCD display is lit up but blank. After a few seconds the lights settle down and the LCD gives a display, but won't cycle through the options. When I try to start the car, the lights flash again and there is a rapid clicking sound from somewhere inside the cabin. The car is a 2006 , 2.2 I-CTDI. Do those symptoms point to anything obvious? I'm wondering if it may be the instrument cluster itself that's been damaged. Any ideas where to begin to resolve this? I'd like to try and sort it myself without taking it in to the dealer if possible, and looking around there seems to wealth of knowledge and expertise here.
