Top 20 2011 Honda Ridgeline RTS Questions & Answers

It can be quite a few things Lisa, but the most likely things are the windscreen rubber has perished, and letting in water (this would be more common on older cars). If your car is more modern, it will probably have a bonded screen. If so, has it recently been replaced? If so, it might be worth approaching the screen fitter to get the screen re-sealed under guarantee.
Run a hose over the front window for a while, while checking below the dashboard to see if you can see where the water is coming in.
There is also a possibility the drain holes in the windscreen scuttle may have become blocked. The scuttle is the bit between the bonnet and the windscreen. It usually has a grill cut into it.
If this is blocked, try to access the drain tube with a long rod to try and clear it out. A common occurrence if your car is regularly parked under trees / bushes, or in dusty areas. Sometimes, you may be able to see a puddle of water collected below the scuttle grill.
The worst result could be rusty floor pans. Most common on older cars. Very rare on newer cars. If you find the carpets become wet only after you have driven in wet conditions, then it is certain to be caused by rust holes in the floor. If you are unlucky enough to have this problem, it might be a good time to get rid of the car.
I can be repaired, but can be very very expensive.
For some very old cars (1960s to 1970s), you can find floor repair panels, but these are less common for newer cars.
You could also have a leaking sunroof. A good competent mechanic should be able to offer a few options to fix that. Start with a hose over the car, with kitchen roll over the carpet to help show up where the water is coming in.
Good luck.

Like many modern vehicles, the fuel pump is in the gas tank. Repair (if needed) is not easy but if you are experienced working on cars, get a hold of the factory service manual.

Hello Daniel, you may be having different problem and one of them is that battery terminals comes with some plastic covers and a lot of people place the car cables on top causing false contact, also have you connect the battery the right way? remember this Japanese cars when you connect the cables the wrong way you burn the main fuse or maybe me more and last thing you want to check is if the previous battery was loosing battery acid it starts eating battery cables causing false contact so if its you case make sure you clean the inside part of the terminals before you connect them in the battery terminals letme know if you need more info ok

no year, ouch.
posted now, 23 times. here it is, again. (im gunning for a new record)
pretty much all cars, newer
De'ja' vu , all over again. (LOL) RTM
RTM read the operators manual, its all there, here is a direct quote.

true for all cars, really all modern cars, 2001 to now. about. read your operator guide)

quote 23
2008 it, huh?) Accord. non satellite Radio. NAV system. , all cars.... 2008 direct quote.

Your vehicle's audio system may disable itself if it is disconnected from electrical power for any reason.
To make it work again, you must enter a specific five-digit code with the preset buttons.
Because there are hundreds of number combinations possible from the five
digits, making the system work without knowing the exact code is nearly impossible.

You should have received a radio code card that lists your audio system's code and serial numbers. {glove box find}
It is best to store this card in a safe place at home. In addition, you should write the audio system's serial number in this owner's manual.

If you lose the card, you must obtain the code number from your dealer.
To do this, you will need the audio system's serial number.

If your vehicle's battery is disconnected or goes dead, or the radio
fuse is removed, the audio system will disable itself. If this happens,
you will see ''ENTER CODE'' in the frequency display (on the screen on models with navigation system) the next time you turn on the system.
Use the preset buttons to enter the five-digit code. The code is on the radio code card included in your owner's manual kit.
When it is entered correctly, the radio will start playing.

If you make a mistake entering the code, do not start over; complete the
five-digit sequence, then enter the correct code. You have 10 tries to enter the correct code.
If you are unsuccessful in 10 attempts, you
must then leave the system on for 1 hour before trying again.

The system will retain your AM and FM presets even if power is disconnected. {only on newer cars'

General information on Honda and DIY:

{the code can be obtained from any Honda dealership (you must give him/her your radio serial number (sticker off radio)"}
or any locksmith with a license from..NASTIF

You'll need a size #00 phillips head screw driver. If it's tough to unscrew even with that, use a lighter to warm up the metal portion of the key, keeping the flame away from the plastic, and the screw should eventually become unseized. Honda used a blue thread locker on those screws.

bad idle , too low.
vast number of reasons.
as always
1: check all fuses.
2: do the skipped tuneup now, the 60kmiles or 100k, per the book.
3: that includes cleaning the EGR ,so car can idle.
