    2G Accessories, Performance Parts & Modifications

  2. pain in the ass jumpstarting

    Second Generation Ridgeline (2G 2017+)
    Only had my truck for about a month. First major annoyance discovered this weekend while camping. Friend's battery died so we thought we'd quickly get it jumpstarted, but HELL no. To get access to your battery you have to first remove the engine cover by pulling it off gently, which always ends...
  3. Adding Second Battery to G2

    Second Generation Ridgeline (2G 2017+)
    I searched as best I could on here to see if there were any preexisting threads but I didn't see any. I'm sort of in the considering stage on trying to add a second battery to my BE to get more play time on Truck Bed Audio and possibly to go along with adding a light bar. Has anyone done any...

    1G Mods, Installs and How-To's
    Hello, this is my first real post on my voltmeter install. I thought I would share it because I had some trouble finding a good location for it. The meter is just one of those generic chinese ones, but it seems to be very accurate and draws very minimal current. I considered many different...

    I'm sure many people are aware of mechanics tricks with batteries. This one is one I have always used and is rather well known. Once you clean off your terminals with baking soda, a coke, vinegar or whatever you are using make sure the cleaner left no residue. Douse it with a little water...

    Do Ridgelines have a way to charge the battery on my travel trailer while I am towing it? My RV dealer said there may be a way for a 12V charge to be accessed through my 7 pin wiring, but my local Honda dealer says they never heard of this.

    I am planning on replacing my 3 yr old battery soon as the last time it was checked it didn't test 100%. Still works but reading all the posts about issues relating to low voltage I get nervous.
