    2001 Dc5 Base

    Hello Gentlemen,
    I'm the proud new owner of a eternal blue base dc5. I just got my P's and found a fairly nice deal on a 2001 model with 215xxx's on it. I figured it was a lot of k's, although after a bit of googling, found out the k20 series is the beast among all.
    A few things have been done to this thing throughout its life, a second-hand tranny has been put in it ( ) and that was done about 6 months ago. It's also had the oxy-sensor problem (as has everything..that i've read)
    Just wondering, anything else I should be looking out for in the first few weeks, months, etc. Of course a oil change is in order but is there anything else recommended?
    Thanks!
    Chris.
    Ps, full service history (every 10xxx's)

    Well I have encountered my first problem :O

    Central locking issue:
    When I press the lock/unlock buttons on either of the 2 remotes, all I can hear is a clicking in the boot area. The doors do not lock and nothing happens.
    Also, when locking by key, only the drivers side door locks. Passenger has to be done by the other side or by pressing down the little stick inside the car.
    ALSO, the boot is never locked. Lock both doors and press buttons everywhere, it is always unlocked.
    Thanks.

    Ofcourse!!
    haha no, the beepers that were given at the time had no battery's in them (sus) and then when bought batteries, didn't work. Central locking through beeper wont work. Using key does lock doors but separately.
    Bought new actuators so will see how they go.

    I have the same issues with the doors, however my beeper locks only the boot (Which is fine provided i hand lock the doors before pressing buzzer).
    If you do figure out the fix for the C/L I would love to steal some of your knowledge as to what to fix haha. Thanks in adv and good luck with the car. Post some pics up would love to see your progress!~

    Quick Update.
    The car had a busted oxy sensor when i bought it so I decided it was time to be changed. Through numerous hours of research I found the best places to source oxys.
    Now this is up to personal preference, some people prefer Denso (the one Honda sourced their oxys from) or ones from honda....the same freaking thing, but some people have 'superstitions'.

    For a 'Real Honda One' I found this Japanese/Russian website handy. They also had other handy things on there. I bought a boot shade hook and am waiting for it in the mail.
    http://www.impex-jp.com/zip/part-sea...=36531-PRB-A01

    For a 'Fake Denso One..' I found RockAuto in the USA to be the place to go. Also have other stuff for RSX/Tegra so have a look!
    http://www.rockauto.com/catalog/rafr...-2349005-22091

    Rockauto is about $150 with postage.
    Impex is about $220 with postage.
    Hope this helps anyone looking for oxys without getting ripped $500 from honda for one!!

    Ps, Impex is a tricky website which took me a little practice to get used to. Feel free to Pm me if wanting a little guidance!
