On the eve of NYE as I was arriving home the dash of my 16 plate diesel HRV lit up like a Christmas tree, with the engine light, EP system indicator light and a flashing parking brake light.
We haven't driven it since, other than to get it on the driveway (parking brake works as expected but the light is blinking) but have used an OBD to retrieve diagnostics codes (can't get it to our local Honda until next week... but the bloke on the phone seemed to think it's a battery issue since ours has never been changed). OBD retrieved the following codes:
- P068A - ECM/PCM Power Relay De-Energized Performance - Too Early
- P00BC - DTC definitions not found! Please refer to your vehicles service manual!
I'm also wondering if it's safe to drive the car to the dealer 10 miles away as the Honda bloke wouldn't tell me if it was OK or not. A tow truck probably costs a fortune
If anyone has any suggestions on things to try over the weekend to troubleshoot, we'd appreciate it. Ta!
