ELECTRICAL SYSTEM

1/12/2015 - CHULA VISTA, CA
EVER SINCE I BOUGHT THE HONDA CIVIC 2012, I'VE HAD PROBLEMS. THE FIRST PROBLEM IS THE AIR BAGS TURNING ON AND OFF. APPARENTLY, THE AIR BAGS TURN OFF IF A CHILD/SOMEONE IS UNDER 100 POUNDS. HOWEVER, ALL MY PREVIOUS EX'S WERE AROUND 110 POUNDS, SO THE AIRBAGS TURN OFF OR ON. I WOULD HATE TO HAVE ONE OF MY GIRLFRIENDS DIE BECAUSE OF A CRASH WHERE THE AIRBAG DID NOT GO OFF. SECOND PROBLEM: THE CAR WILL NOT START MULTIPLE OF TIMES! I HAD MY BATTERY CHECKED MULTIPLE TIMES AND IT IS NOT THE ALTERNATOR, EITHER! APPARENTLY THE STEERING WHEEL PROBLEM OR THE SECURITY SYSTEM DRAINS THE BATTERY. I HAD TO BUY A RECHARGEABLE BATTERY AND JUMPER CABLES WHICH I CARRRY IN MY TRUNK BECAUSE I AM TIRED OF CALLING MY INSURANCE COMPANY OR SECURITY AT THAT LOCATION TO JUMP START MY CAR.

I WAS DRIVING A 2012 HONDA CIVIC WHEN THE CAR IN FRONT OF ME SLAMMED ON THEIR BRAKES AND CAME TO A COMPLETE STOP DUE TO SOMETHING IN THE ROAD. I SLAMMED ON MY BRAKES AND TRIED TO AVOID THE CAR IN FRONT OF ME BY SWERVING TO THE RIGHT. THE DRIVER SIDE OF THE FRONT OF MY CAR HIT THE BACK OF THE CAR IN FRONT OF ME. MY CAR WAS COMPLETELY SMASHED IN THE FRONT. AIR BAGS DID NOT DEPLOY. AFTER I CAME TO A COMPLETE STOP, MY CAR LIT ON FIRE. THE CAR WAS BURNED AND COMPLETELY DESTROYED.

THIS HAS HAPPENED MORE THAN ONCE. WHEN DESCENDING A HILL AFTER LETTING UP ON GAS PEDAL THE VEHICLE WILL REV UP FOR A FEW OF SECONDS AND HITTING THE BRAKES DID NOT DISENGAGE THROTTLE, ALSO WHEN PASSING ANOTHER VEHICLE AFTER PULLING IN AND LET UP ON PEDAL THE CAR STILL REVVED UP FOR A COUPLE OF SECONDS. HAVE NOT TAKEN TO A DEALER YET AS I AM TRYING TO FIND EXACTLY HOW AND WHEN THIS PROBLEM OCCURS SO I CAN GET THE DEALER TO REPRODUCE THIS PROBLEM (SPEED, ROAD CONDITIONS, AND ANY OTHER CONDITIONS THAT MIGHT CAUSE THIS PROBLEM). AS WE ALL KNOW THEY CAN NEVER GET THE PROBLEMS TO REPRODUCE.
