How to Test Active Noise Control in the Honda Accord


The Honda Accord comes with a system known as Active Noise Control or Active Noise Cancellation. This enhancement is designed to minimize engine noise and keep the cabin quiet and comfortable at cruising speeds. You may wish to test this system when you feel that the Active Noise Control in your Accord is no longer functioning as well as expected.

Things You'll Need

  • Decibel meter
  • Go for a drive on the highway in your Accord. Take a decibel meter with you.

  • Turn on the decibel meter and record the average dB rating during your trip.

  • Visit a local Honda dealer and test drive a brand-new Accord. Take the decibel meter with you on the test drive.

  • Repeat the experiment on your test drive. If the dB level in the new Accord is lower than it is in your Accord, your Active Noise Control protection may be failing.
