I can swear my car has the 03-058 TSB problem, but my VIN is not listed, the TSB ends with the 22xxx, and mine is in the 23xxx, if I ask my dealer to still check it out, you think they might fix it? This has happened to me many times, like it's rubbing against something, hmmm.

I already got 6 TSBs that my VIN falls into place, lol.

The VIN #'s are more of a guideline. When the cars are produced, they have no idea that these problems will arise. What they do is study the statistics of people who complain about problems, like the brake rotors warping, and if it turns out a lot of people are having similar problems, they will issue a TSB. VIN #'s on the TSB may be calculated from the frequency of problems within a similar range, or if a certain part from a certain lot is known to be defective, the VIN #'s listed may be the cars produced that use that certain part from that certain lot. It does not mean that if your VIN falls into that range that your car will DEFINITELY develop that problem, nor does it mean that if your VIN is excluded from that range, that you will NOT develop that problem. TSB's are updated on an ongoing basis, and many times the VIN range will increase as more cars report the same problem. It's basically a gudeline for predicting the PROBABILITY of a cetain problem occurring in a certain VIN range. So if your VIN is included in a TSB, it does not mean that the dealer is obligated to replace any parts if you are not showing symptoms of the problem, and if your VIN is NOT included, it does not mean that the dealer will NOT fix your problem if you DO have one.

Hope this clarifies things

Josephip, great explanation, I got it now.

By the way, how did you get the PDF files on all these?? or is that top-secret information? I was just wondering cause on the ODI website, they list the TSB's, but not the PDF files.

Took a lot of searching to get all of them. Honda does not want them released to the public, so I just acquire them here and there. I've been keeping an ongoing collection of them since September of 2003 when I bought my 03 Accord.

edit: Also, if you have a specific TSB # that is not posted yet, let me know and I will try to get it.

YOU SO RULE! This was the most useful post I have ever seen here. All these little problems that I thought I was going crazy with...wiper streaking, wind noise in the door, clutch pedal popping...now off I go to get it all fixed.

Oh, BTW, is there a TSB about the center compartment outlet not working?

Thanks for the TSB'S
Do you think you can find the one for the ignition key getting warm. I think the # is 603, but that doesn't look the same as the rest of the TSB'S.
Mine is going in as soon as the parts come in for
Hard starting
Rattles in both front doors with windows down
Wind noise at both the front & rear of the front door glass
Noise in the right side of dash panel
The ones they could not find, because the noise only happens when the body is cold and the weather has been hot here in SoCal are
Rattle in the steering column
Instrumant cluster hood rattle
Noise in the a-pillars
Thanks again for the TSB'S, they have been a help.

I have more info on the warm key TSB. The date is 6/16/03 & the NHTSA # 10003204. There is also a TSB called GRADE LOGIC CONTROL INFORMATION, # 06-0103, NHTSA # 10002699. This might have something to do with another problem I am having intermittantly that Honda can not find. On rapid acceleration, not wide open throttle, the trans will delay for 1 to 2 secs, down shift from 5th to 4th then to 3rd then open the throttle and then the rpm will come up and your off. This happens between 45-70 mph when running in 5th gear.
I am getting the front door rattle fixed and will try to get Honda to give me a copy of the TSB. It has #11-1703
Thanks Tim

I talked to the dealer today and they found the warm key TSB. It basically says that the shift interlock solenoid is located in the column next to the ignition lock cylinder, the heat from the solenoid warms the lock cylinder & key, the warm key is a normal condition. My key gets very warm when the car is driven for a long time.

Josephip, i just wanted to say GREAT POST...I HAVE 10 of these problems....too many to mention....:-p, but im hoping that i can get them fixed some time soon, after i get my lil fender bender fixed and my dvd and lcd installed :-d, For one of the problems they said that they had to replace the transmission, but it was a rebuilt one, and im guessing this means a refurbished one? But yea, i guess, if I dont think theres anything wrong with it, it shouldnt be fixed, even though its on the list right?..iono...

There is also a new TSB for 4 cylinder Accords and Engine Vibration.

I guess there is a new kit out that has new engine mounts to take care of the vibration (really felt when AC compressor kicks in).

My dealer said it just came out and they have engine mounts on order for me. It would be good to see the actual TSB so I can make sure everything is done.

Yes! Thank you!

My car is at the dealership now having the full kit installed.

My advisor was right that it had just come out when I took it to them last week. The date is 5/4, and I think I took it to them on 5/4 or 5/5.

I hope you don't mind that I put a link to the TSB on vtec.net, because I have a post over there about this TSB and people wanted info on it. If you would like I can remove it from there.

Thanks again!

I too want to know how you are getting the pdf files - I am guessing you have access to the actual Honda website where these are stored. I can't remember the URL, but I know it was a Honda website that you have to pay for. It is meant for techs (presumably at non-Honda shops, so they can look up the same info for fixing cars.)

I actually get them from a bunch of places. Sometimes I search the internet, sometimes people e-mail them to me. I have a brother who works for an insurance company and a couple friends who work at dealerships so people just send them whenever they come across them, or sometimes I have to look for them, but whenevr I get new ones, I'll post them just so I'm sure there are extra copies floating around in case I lose mine

What exactly do they mean by vibration in the I4 Accords? I think I might have that problem - I just never have frickin' time to take it to the dealer. (They always seem to drag their feet) I don't have excessive vibration the entire time - however, when at idle I feel it vibrate every 20-30 seconds like the fan kicks in or something, then vibration goes away.

Yep - that's the exact vibration I have and still have after the TSB was applied to my car. The TSB seemed to make it a little less, but it is still there and noticable. I will have the dealer look at it again at my next service and make sure the TSB was applied correctly or that there isn't anything wrong with my AC compressor.

It only does it when I have my AC on and the compressor kicks in. My car vibrates pretty bad. I can feel it in my butt and my seat back and through the steering wheel.

Besides the problems with the brakes, this is the only problem that really is dissapointing. I can live with the rattles and the squeaks, but the vibration is only going to get worse as the car ages.

Hey Bryan - thanks for the response. And yea it was only with the AC on. My dad owns the exact same car as I do and his definitely does not do it (although his VIN falls under the ones listed) But I can feel it exactly like you can though. Guess I'll have to get off early tomorrow to make an appointment.

Thanks josephip! I love printing out these TSBs and handing them to the service manager. I think they actually appreciate it because they don't have to figure out how to fix it- I've already done their homework for them.
