1998 accord V6 electrical problems

Hey, i ;ve had a 98 accord for the past few months and ever since there has been electric problems. A mnor one, the washer fluid indicator is alwyas, even when full,. As well, the lights would badly dim when windows or whatever were used. Then i hooked up a deck and system, and completly blew my alternator one day, replaced alternator, sub and deck are installed fine. Now even when the sub is disconnected, my lights will dim whenever a strong bass note hits. As well, now pretty much all my headlights won't wrok, only the left highbeam will turn on. And my day lights will sometime come on, and sometimes not. If anyone could help that would be awsome. and a money saver. Could be a short or **** wires somewhere?

Where is the ECM relay located on a 98 Isuzu Rodeo


Emission control mechanism or relay is either a vacuum plunger type or a relay switch electrical plug that controls vacuum for the smog. Go to the parts store and look at one and ask where it goes or just trace it. This stops from buying one if you remove the hose or connector and the same problem is still there!

I have a 98 Venture with 180K on it. The past few months it has been acting up. I'm constantly getting a check engine light (cylinder 3 misfire). Changed out all the plugs. Ran great for a few days and...


well it sounds like you have an electrical problem as in a ground wire or connection. as far as the misfire on three only,have the coil checked and check that intake gasket around that cylinder with carb cleaner for air leak

What mileage or duration should I change the transmission oil of my 1999 Honda accord (HONDA ACCORD 1999)


My Accord V6 '99 has over 215,000. You can use synthetic transmission oil if its zr1 compatible. I change mine every 60,000 or so. Its 3 qts for the v6. The nissan maximas are the ones that have transmissions that generally dont last past 120,000 miles. Why do you still see many 98 and 99 accords still on the road Carlos?
If yours went at 70,000 than you need to buy a haynes manual and keep up with the maintenance on your car. By the way. Honda Accords are notorious for running fine after 200,000 miles. The parts are easy access and if you use a cheap obd2 scanner you can zero in on any problem with the car.

Honda Accord 98 EX coupe - 3L V6 starting problem


I would take the vehicle to a different shop.
You can go to Autozone , They can scan the vehicle for free. There maybe a codes stored and auto zone can tell you what the code means. You can also check the price of ignition coils with them. The price the shop is asking is rediculous . I am guessing a coil should not be no more then 100.00 and labor time 1.5 hours with diagnosis time. I think you can get an estimate for repairs at Pep boy for a lot less. Good Luck .

Set timing on a 1998 accord 3.0 V6?


Before messing with the timing, get your alternator checked out. Supplying the ECU in a V6 Accord (98-02) can cause some of the same problems you've described above. I had some of the same stuff happen in my 2000 EX V6 and it turned out to be an alt/batt combination. I replaced both and had none of the problems (transmission or otherwise) that I experienced.
