My gp 1 Audio set up is stucked & showing a error message in japaneese. Looking for a car audio center for rectifying. Please advice
duthindara | March 2, 2014 at 10:16 pm
Have your car 12V battery disconnected recently? Or even a power break down to audio unit? Petco lanka is a good place to rectify.

If you accidentally dropped the Air Filter box Plastic Clip and lost inside the engine bay while you were trying to clean/change the Air Filter, and were unable to find it you can still buy it from Stafford Motors for Rs. 350/- (item code – 17219-P65-000)

My Honda Fit Hybrid does 15~16 kmpl in Colombo (daily driven) heavy traffic after my regular service. I used the oil Toyot* 0w20 (Made in Japan) as genuine mileage was 10,000 km. 4L Oil Can cost 5300/- (this is a mineral oil which needs to change in every 5000km), and Honda oil filter Cost me Rs. 2000/-. Sharing this info for everyone’s knowledge.

Hi Varuna, Will you share which place you have done your service? also where you purchased 0W20 oil?

hi’all, my honda fit hybrid car display indicating HMMF .with key mark.
key mark means not start key,so please advice me what is this problem.
dharshana | February 23, 2014 at 10:40 am
The HMMF indicator comes, because it’s due to change your CVT transmission oil. This alarm normally comes in 40000Km.
There is older posts which discussed this in detail. Including which oil you need to choose.

Niroshan Fonseka | February 23, 2014 at 8:05 pm
hi, should need to Replace transmission fluid 45,000km intervals if the dash board symbol not indicate before arrive to 45000km.
dharshana | February 19, 2014 at 11:14 am
On my Honda insight it seems Break binding on rear right side wheels. It hurts like crazy comparing with other wheels. Is repairing binding breaks needs an extra attention on hybrids. Or is it the same proceeding as a petrol vehicle. Or is there is any possibility this can affect the electronic system as Stability assist.
Niroshan Fonseka | February 19, 2014 at 1:58 pm
Remove the rear right side wheel together with drum & give a high air pressure to remove the break pad dusts. (do not add the Air pressure with water) If u still have the same issue after giving this treatment u have to call for professional technical assistance. This will not impact for the Stability assist as same treatment will giving while do the regular service.
dimuthu | February 18, 2014 at 12:15 am
Hi all friend ,I plann to buy Honda Fit Hybrid ,pls advise me. how is fuel consruption in fit hybrid and how much honda fit hybrid battery?
Donald | March 8, 2014 at 11:08 am
do check the dash board indicator for the earlier readings, if it reds below 14 or so and the car is less than 10,000 Km reading, better you don’t buy it.
Liyanage | February 13, 2014 at 11:50 am
What’s the reason for the jerk you get in low RPM (specially in low speeds and when you brake and pick up again). Some advice to look at spark plugs/tune up and some say to clean the throttle body. If I’m to do these what’s the best place to get it done.
It’s not petrol. I have tried different places for petrol.
Niroshan Fonseka | February 17, 2014 at 10:44 am

Hi guys, One of my cousin sister also own a Honda FIT GP 1 model and I have seen her car dash board illumination dash board light function is not working and its only gives the Blue light longer instead of changing to deferent colors .
So this is usual or appreciate your valuable comments in this regards …

varuna | February 18, 2014 at 1:54 pm
Just a thought. Hope she is not driving in the “S” mode in the gears
Niroshan Fonseka | February 19, 2014 at 1:53 pm
now it has fixed the issue was on the fuse board.
varuna | February 27, 2014 at 12:35 pm
This light change can be stopped using options given in the speedometer panel / small display. You can customize the player black light, green-blue change, cabin light timing etc using that menu. Thing is its in Japanese.
Ajith | February 11, 2014 at 11:43 am
Hi, we just bought a Honda FIT GP1 – 2012. Can any body tell how I can get a user manual downloaded. The Car is factory fitted with a Navigation System. Appreciate if somebody could guide us as to how this system could be used locally in Sri Lanka. Thanks everybody for creating this wonderful page.
Donald | March 8, 2014 at 11:23 am
i think we all have this language problem with the Japan domestic model cars..
go to http://www.honda.co.jp/ownersmanual/HondaMotor/auto/
use the google chrom browser and get the page translated in to English.
select the Fit Honda 2012 model and you will be directed to the available manuals. but all will be in japanese and in pdf version.
there is long way to make them into english.
the easy way will be get it read by a Japanese friend, if you can find one.
Suranga | February 10, 2014 at 7:43 am
Hi, this is to Forum administrator.
I found that the search option does not give results from past posts. If it did, we can easily find valuable knowledge from the long history. Can you please see the possibility enable this.
Dilum Lewis | February 4, 2014 at 8:15 pm
i currently own a Honda insight ze3 which was imported from japan and the multi information display is in Japanese. Is there a way to change the language in it?
I also want to know whether we can change the time in it? thank you
Charitha Ekanayake | February 7, 2014 at 9:07 am
Hi Dilum, I am sorry that it is really hard to change the languge on it. but the time setting can be done.
Prabhath Dunuwille | February 4, 2014 at 4:03 pm
I got valuable information by going through the past comments. I bought a Honda fit hybrid and did 1st service at 9815 miles. But the engine oil used was 10W 40M which is not suitable as per past comments. Will I need to get it changed?
Thanks in advance.
Charitha Ekanayake | February 7, 2014 at 9:08 am
well best is 0w-30. but service manual also recormend 5w-30 as well
Suranga | February 4, 2014 at 1:04 pm
Anybody know what VCD/DVD I can play in Honda Internavi. Yes, I know that it should be Japanese standard. Any information on how to write a VCD/DVD to complying standard. I tried writing NTSC standard disc. But, it only gave “Error”. So, I believe there should be some specific standards. Web search didn’t pop a good enough guide for this.
Suranga | February 10, 2014 at 7:39 am
I got it done. Used ANV “Any Video Converter” and used its default setting “NTSC DVD” as output. You can write directly to DVD from it. I in fact wrote few MP4 videos downloaded from Youtube. It seems to support any format.
It’s a free software, Google it. In Honda DVD player, written DVD plays fine. I get some menu options in Japanese, which I can’t understand. Yet, it shows Title and Chapter prev next in English at least.
