Hello, I am Jose Sebastian. Your automotive expert, It's a pleasure to me to attend your question. Thank you very much for trust in just answer.

Dear customer, I am sorry to hear that you are having this problem, module failures can be really expensive, I would like to know if the cost of the 1300 includes the module replacement or if it is just the overhaul?

Is this an unreasonable charge for a module replacement?
Customer: replied 13 days ago.
Is there anyone other place other than Honda to fix this problem

Dear customer it is not an excessive cost is what the official agencies normally charge for this kind of work, however I would also be inclined to look for other offers in unofficial workshop, if you wish leave me your address and throughout the day I will get you sites where they can do this work at a lower cost.
