Question about 2001 Honda Civic

1 Answer

The problem with your Honda...

I'm attempting to post this solution on the board.  I took my Civic to a repair shop known for solving electrical problems.  They checked the electrical system and diagnosed the problem as a faulty "multiplex control unit" (or maybe they called it a "multiplex processor").  This is basically a small greyish box about the size of a really fat paperback book that's located underneath the steering column.  It acts as a computer of sorts...kindof like an electrical switchboard, from what I understand.  
Good news is that replacing the multiplex unit correctly solved the problem.  Bad news is that it cost me around $600.

Child locks and windows will not unlock on 2000 Honda Civic

There are two wiring harness plugs at that switch. It sounds like the plugs are not making a good connection. If you attempt to repair this yourself you will need to remove the driver door panel. This will also void the parts and labor warranty. I highly recommend that you return to the dealer and have them correct this. It will be worth it. Hope this helps. Good luck.

Thats why you dont take your vehicle to some kid at the stereo shop without a wirnig diagram to poke around and screw up your car. You should have OK'd the Honda dealer to fix it, and have the manager from the steroe shop pay for any repairs. Sounds like a bunch of parts changers are just replacing parts without testing. Once you buy parts like that, there's no refunds.

A/C & power door locks not working

Hi, This was the perfect solution to my problem!!! I go to my 01 Honda Civic a few days ago and my power locks weren't working ,my a/c wasn't blowing cold,my dome light wasn't coming on, and my brake indicator light wasn't going off. My husband spent half the night trying to figure out the problem, then we get on the internet and found this site ,so helpful. We called Honda the next day and ordered the multiplex control fuse box that goes under the steering column through my husband's work, it cost $120.00 wholesale and put it in the next day,problem solved!!!! This site is a great help,thanks so much and keep up the good work!!!
