If your engine light is on, then that means there is a trouble code stored in the cars computer. Could be anything, and you will not know what it is until you get the code read. A lot of chain auto parts stores such as Advance auto parts or Autozone will read the code for you at no charge. I would try that first, and that will let you know what the problem is, and what to expect needs to be fixed. If you do not have one of those stores near you, look for any auto parts store that offers a free code read diagnostic. Hope this helps. Please repost a comment if you need additional assistance.

Thank you!

    Maybe I can clarify? When you take your car to the service shop they will:

    1.Connect your car to their diagnostic tool to read the code and figure out what is wrong.

    2.They will notify you of the problem and what needs to be done to fix it.

    3.They will proceed to repair agreed upon service to your vehicle.

    4.The problem will be resolved and you will pay for your service and pick up your vehicle.

    Please let me know if you have any additional questions, and please re-evaluate your rating on the Fixya scale.

1993 honda accord engine service light is on and Shift drive D4

If the drive light flashes there COULD be a trans problem. The Ck Engine light and the D4 light are on for the same reason. Take it to a qualified repair shop to have it checked out. Find a shop that regularly works on HONDA and not some chain store operation.

My honda accord have no power and cek engine light on olso i have fill more oil every 2 week i want solve problem thaks

do you know how to check why your check engine light is on?

Im not sure if it is the same as my accord bc i have a 94, but if it is, all you need is a paperclip.

Check under your glove compartment and see if there is 2 blue electrical terminals. unplug them and link them with a paperclip. Your check engine light should start blinking. Count the blinks, making sure they all blink at the same rate. Some blink long, others short. Its like morse code. Then google the engine codes. It should give you the problem without spending the 100 bucks at a shop.

Happy hunting.
