    Default Major issue in Honda Civic 2015 stalling itself with steering lock.

    Has anyone ever faced an issue where the 2013-2016 Honda civic suddenly stops in the middle of the road with lights switching on and off but the ignition switch remains on and the steering wheel when turned to say a certain degree left turns back itself with alot of force, felt like some mechanical pull and the car was also saying "Check Air Bag, Airbag disabled". I was wearing a seatbelt and started thinking that mistakenly the airbag might just deploy so I was constantly in fear of the mechanical failure of this civic on the way back home.

    Reason I ask this is because I just had this issue with me when I was turning onto main Karsaz road from a sidelane and almost had a major major car accident as cars are travelling fast on Karsaz and as soon as I turned onto it, the car started acting up. A guy I know in honda repairs told me this is an issue with Honda Civic Navigation package which has a tracker in it, as it stalls the car and locks the steering wheel which is extremely dangerous. I was travelling with my 2 year old daughter and will not be using this car again until I know for sure of what is going on in the darn computer of the car.

    Any input from people is highly recommended as to what this might be as I will not be driving this car for now. Its hardly done 200Km but I am disappointed.

    Nope no after market parts at all in the car. Everything is as is original from Honda. When switching to navigation from the buttons, tracking world logo comes so it's tracking world Pakistan. Never heard of this before as well but I have first hand experience in this and Honda South is also confirming this that there are issues in these trackers which cause electrical failures. Let's see what Honda actually says on paper tomorrow when I swing by their dealership with the car. Freaky experience nonetheless.

    Im certainly no newbie in Honda cars as I've owned every Honda since the 6th generation and have loved all of them. Don't know why this one is going nuts with all the bells and whistles of 2015.

    I don't know the reason either. It's just what Honda is saying. Maybe it's a manufacturing fault or maybe it's a tracker fault, I guess I shall find out today but what the car did was very stupid and unexpected. Any other country and they could have been sued.

    I can say for sure that there was no protocol on the road at about 6pm as everyone is going from home from offices and the traffic was free flow from shara-e-faisal onto main Karsaz. About your issue, this is very dangerous as a moving car should not be stopping. This protocol crap should not be doing these things to public vehicles.

    My car stalled and had a steering lock and pull on it, when i turn it left, it would forcefully turn itself right with immense force and the steering went out of control. Never happened to me with earlier models.

    By reading all the replies it looks like Jamming Devices (4 Antennas) installed on Protocol Cars are causing trouble with the tracker signals resulting in cars to stall on their own.

    Heard that before too. A friend having Tracker installed in his car experiences same when a Convoy pass by him and his car stalled for no reason.

    I guess I will keep this under consideration when going to Honda as the Check Airbag and Airbag Failed warning light kept flashing as well when the car was disabled and the steering was pulling itself to the right with a lot of force. If this tracker is causing an issue then I shall get myself a Brickhouse Security Tracker which works only with mobilink but at least it doesn't disable the car which can result in major accidents leading to injuries or the possibility of death.

    Community Votes: 1
    Just came back from Honda South (Karachi) and they said that this is a identified issue with some Honda Civics but should not be happening now. Apparently the connection of the Tracker system is causing the car to jam the steering wheel and lock it mostly when reversing the car and sometimes is causing this issue in the forward gears just like mine. Have asked me to go to my respected tracker company and tell them to fix it as Honda cannot do anything about it since the tracker is from another company. Honda told me that the tracking company will connect the tracker using another way to the car (free of cost) and it should solve the issue instantly.

    Hearing all of this, I am seriously disappointed with Honda and their Quality Checks since this should not be happening in the first place. Honda Atlas should not let such idiotic pakistani tracker systems be installed in these cars when they can cause a running car to jam its wheels and render is useless for a couple of seconds, and that couples of seconds can be the difference between life and death. I will take this up with Honda Atlas and my tracker company. Unfortunately I do not know which tracker company is installed in my car as I ordered the car from honda dealership in Lahore so need them to let me know what is it since I just got the car 3 days ago.

    Thank you everyone for the input. Cheers!

    Those Sqaud vehicles of Rangers are bomb defusal IDE systems so they spread signals to difuse cellphone bombs and mines so they do interfere with the frequency of trackers too as per my judgement.Even the Heavy secured buildings too have this system installed nowadays so that makes a sense to your Honda Civic.

    For steering Honda Civic new models use EPS so if the engine is cutoff or no current to some parts of vehicle then the steering will become real hard to turn.

    Apparently I found out for sure that I do not have a tracker in my car, just a tracking world Navigation system. So it's the fault of the navigation system which is causing mechanical failure in the car and tracking world has accepted it as Honda has too. They will replace the Navigation unit any day now.

    probably has to do with a jammer. check with ur tracking company
    people who use Highbeams.. once day would suffer too bigtime. People who drive slow on fast lanes, remember one day a vehicle carryin ur son, dad might get late to hospital coz people like u. underaged driving will land u in bigtime trouble one day or the other.. And the Blue indication light on ur speedometer denotes "High Beams"
