Are you aware what the owners manual says about the negative connection for jumping? Page 625 with photo of the proper connection.
“Connect the other end of the second
jumper cable to the engine hanger as
shown. Do not connect this jumper cable to
any other part.”

Yes I am. The top plastic engine cover would have to be removed to gain access. This is just a quick connection, mainly for trickle charging or quick boosting in a pinch. I’ve had the air box and battery cover off. I’ve previously greased both the positive and negative connections as a preventative maintenance measure. It just so happens that the battery ground runs to the unibody frame among other locations including the block. As a licensed mechanic I’m confident that this will not harm my passport.

PS. Honda installs many a plastic cover to discourage regular folk from messing with them. This includes the front hood cover that hides access to the rad cap. Kinda silly.

I'm using that same threaded screw hole, Sendbeta. Also I have installed a BatteyrMINDer Flush mount EZ connector. View attachment 5489 View attachment 5492 View attachment 5491


So now, I just pull up next to the trickle charger mounted on the garage wall and plug it in without raising the hood.
hi, do you mind to take a pic of how you did the wiring and howdid you “tucked” in those wires? Is the ezconnect fits perfectly on the “opening vent “ off the base windshield?

thanks in advance :)

green = + pos hookup on battery and wire ty wrapped off; yellow = - neg hookup to car body/frame, a threaded hole; blue = trickle charger socket. I drilled a small hole thru the plastic housing to feed the wires from the socket. Wire crimps are need to lengthen the runs to the battery and ground.
pic #2 showes the set up. You don't have to raised the hood to plug in the trickle/charger. IMG_1511.JPG IMG_5943.JPG I use pink flagging to remind me to unplug it when leaving out!

thank you Bayoubob, your set up is really good, I might do that in the future. I was in Costco and bought the battery tender (4.5amp) for $36.99 amd I thought it was a good price. and tried if it will worked on the bolts off the mounting bracket of the air filter box. And it seems it’s working fine. Made a video just for this🤦🏼‍♂️.


but I like your set up. I was hoping I could get away without making a hole on the plastic you mentioned and I even removed the plastic cover (where you can have access to the mounting bolts for the front suspension) to look if there’s a “hole”. And I didn’t find any at least on the drivers side.
