The climate control unit has a diagnostic mode that allows you to view sensor inputs that it receives. To run the sensor input display mode:

1. Turn the ignition switch off.
2. Press and hold both AUTO and DUAL buttons, and start the engine.
3. After the engine starts, release both buttons.
4. The audio-HVAC display will flash a sensor number, then value for the sensor.
5. To adavnce to the next sensor, press the rear window defogger button.
6. To cancel this mode, press AUTO, or turn off ignition.

Sensor numbers, descriptions, and display values as follows:

1. In-car temp (degrees C).
2. Outside temp (C).
3. Solar radiation sensor value (00=dark, 10=cloudy, 65=sunny).
4. Engine coolant temp (C).
5. Evaporator outlet air temp (C).
6. Driver's air mix opening (low=cool, high=warm, %).
7. Passenger's air mix opening (low=cool, high=warm, %).
8. Vehicle speed (km/h).
9. Vent temp air out (C).

click on it, then in the bottom right hand corner of the webpage, there is a link that says "View Image Info". Click that, then you can download it. Its 14.2Mb

Procedure:
1. hold the trip/reset button (without the key in the ignition)
2. turn the headlights on
3. insert the key and turn it to "on" position
4. turn the headlights off, on , off fairly quickly
5. let go of the trip/reset button, and press it again three times quickly

the gauges will go crazy around the "rest" position, then do the sweep. press the trip/reset button to initiate another sweep... u can do it as many times as you like

I tired that for the TSX, it just works for the HAVOC but not the gauges... too bad maybe it'll work on the USDM accord??

The gauge sweep will work for the TSX as the procedure actually came from an alert TSX owner in Canada who spotted it in the TSX service manual. :nutkick:

It's posted on "the other site". :wall:

Could you check hwo much is the cruise control switch on your steering wheel.
My friend, I know you're endlessly searching for one ... But you'd need to buy the entire steering wheel assembly that has all the controls and functions. It cannot be dismantled or sold separately.
