Question about 1997 Honda Accord
I went to turn my 1997 honda accord on this morning and I saw smoke coming from the hood, and when I raised the hood there were flames down below. I waited a few hours into the afternoon and went to start it again. There were no more smoke and flames but it will not shift into gear like reverse, drive and so forth. The dash lights won't come on but I figure it's a fuse thing. There is a recall for ignition switches for accords built 1997-2000. I am going to take it in for that, but does anyone know if that ignition recall may have any connection to the other problems I just had this morning and after noon? Or will the dealership hit me with the whole "new transmission" thing?
Hello i dont think you will need a tranny your ignition system is tied into a few different areas in your harness from what your explaining the ignition contacts cross each other creating a short,safety neutral switch mounted at tranny ,starter, wich would run thru system blowing out fusebile links that are tied into the harness most likely near your starter ,goodluck please rate
