    Hi evrybody, Thanks very much for the replies so far the central locking is still ongoing!
    How ever just had the CR-V serviced and the following codes were noticed.
    P03C7
    P10C6
    P3EB8
    P00BE

    The service guy thought these to be Honda codes and couldn't find them in the obd manual!!!
    The vehicle runs superb at 121k and has just passed the MOT 6 weeks ago, One of the codes he thought referred to the cat
    this appears to be fairly new but could be a cheapy!!! but just good enough to pass the test...
    any thoughts most appriciated

    Those don't look like valid codes.

    Most likely your mechanic has a generic OBD code reader and the code reader has misinterpreted the Honda codes.

    Best get the codes read by Honda dealership or independent Honda specialist with the right equipment to read the codes.

    ignore the advise that has been given off the back of the codes that have been read so far.

    The Garage that read the codes are really annoyed over this! their equipment was 3 weeks old at a cost of £3K.
    plus the manual supplied didn't have those codes in it....they just gave up..I shall try again.
    Thanks for all the help offered.

    HDS is the Honda Diagnostics Software which run with a few versions of Hardware i.e tablets , a box called HIM or the latest MVCI.
    These are found at Honda dealerships and a few genuine one in the hands of true enthusiasts .

    They are fake Chinese clones out there which do the same thing which are lethal.

    So are Honda not OBDII compliant then?

    Just curious - I'd rather have a carb or two on my petrol engines (like my '76 Morgan :Smile: ).

    They are OBD-2 compliant but if generic code manufactures don't build their kit with a manufacturers DTC code list you have no hope. That why only the really expensive kit cater for all cars like snap on. So next time anyone buys a 45 quid eBay special then wonder why it not working and why it can't find a ABS code you know why.

    OBD-2 compliance is for a set parameter all manufacturer can have their own unique DTC codes for their subsystems and that is legal under the framework.

    Ahh, got you.
    I'm still trying to learn about this canbus stuff (and TBH, not getting very far! :Unknown:).
    Electronics, particularly when related to r.f. I understand and I've been repairing PCs etc. for over 20 years, but the dedicated stuff in cars is, so far, a black art...
    Ignition is fine, even FI I'll grudgingly accept, but why do I need a computer to drive a motor that opens a window, or drives servos to alter how much airflow comes oout of dash vents - it's all beyond me.
    But then all my cameras use something strange (to many) called film :lol:

    Cheers,
    Graham
