This is the first time dealing with a Honda & the first time with an electronic throttle body.
So I ended up doing something I'm not suppose to do, which is clean the throttle body while installed & connected. Ever since I stuck my fingers inside the throttle body/open the valve to wipe down with a rag.....my throttle response is....crap/hesitant.
I saw a few Youtube videos after telling me to disconnect the battery (negative) and clean TB after it has been removed from the vehicle. In short the electronic TB has programmed sensors which can get screwed if you push the valve open while connected to the power source.
They spoke of a "relearn procedure", but was not able to find anything concrete for the Honda. All for Ford & Toyota.
Need help with this one, or I am just going to buy a new TB Assembly from Honda which is only about $90. So it's not too bad.
Thanks in advance guys!
It looks like you need to reset the PCM then run the idle learn procedure. The problem is you can apparently only reset the PCM with the HDS, so you might be better off bringing it to the dealer and seeing if a tech can step out and preform the procedure:
Make sure all electrical items (the A/C, the audio, the lights, etc.) are off.
Reset the PCM with the HDS.
Turn the ignition switch to ON (II), or press the engine start/stop button to select the ON mode, and wait 2 seconds.
Start the engine. Hold the engine speed at 3,000 rpm without load (M/T in neutral, A/T and CVT in P or N) until the radiator fan comes on, or until the engine coolant temperature reaches 194 °F (90 °C).
Let the engine idle for about 5 minutes with the throttle fully closed.
NOTE: If the radiator fan comes on, do not include its running time in the 5 minutes.
Turn the ignition switch to LOCK (0), or press the engine start/stop button to select the OFF mode.
Jump the SCS line with the HDS.
Wait 60 seconds, and exit the SCS mode with the HDS.
You might be able to do it without the reset but that's what Honda docs say to do. It also says that the idle learn procedure needs to be completed after the throttle body is cleaned.
