    Hi :Smile:
    I have a pending DTC for the above code and saw on another thread that there is a software update for this problem.
    I called my 'local' Honda dealer in Aberdeen and they advised they would run a full diag / update for £99.
    The problem is that I live in Shetland and you wouldn't believe how much it costs to take a car on the boat and we're not going away until July.

    All that being said is there a cable / piece of software I could use myself to update the car with a laptop?
    I'm guessing there are risks and costs involved with doing it myself but thought I'd ask.

    My local Honda collect and drop off my car after working on it.

    Maybe while on holiday (if at a camp site or static place) you could arrange with the site and local dealer to collect from there?
