2004 Accord engine light

I have a 2004 Honda Accord and the yellow check engine light just came on. I got my car inspected about a week ago (to get tags), and was thinking they would have caught something then... I for some reason don't have the manual, and I am afraid to take it somewhere because they could charge me an arm an a leg!! What are the possible problems it could be? Is it still safe to drive??
Thank you!!

    It doesn't blink... I noticed it about 2 hours ago... I don't use any fuel enhancers... I am almost due for an oil change... where would the message be blinking?

  • Bubscoop Nov 16, 2008

    Okay so when I got my oil changed they said they would check why my engine light kept coming on. They got the code and it said it had to do with my oxygen sensor. The guy said he turned my engine light off (or reset it) and if it came back on I would need to get the oxygen sensor replaced. I cant remember exactly but he said to replace this would be around $70. Is he just trying to mess with me because I am a chick?? :)

If it blinks constantly,,, its a message,,,, if its on occasionally steady and then off,, i wouldnt u use fuel enhancers.. like dry gas or anything like that?? it can change the o2 censors where ur light may come on occasionally for no reason my mechanic told me....if it blinks a message there is probably a real problem..... u may be able to access ur manual online if u have the manufacturers numbers!!

Accord - 2004 check engine, (!)& VSA turns on the loss of power

The exact same thing just happened to me yesterday on a seven hour road trip from Atlanta. I have a manual V6 Ex four door, and I had to turn the car off and back on and allow the car to start with momentum while still driving for over three hours just to keep from have to rent a car and avoid a tow.

I have 58,000 miles on my 2006 accord, and I feel that I really got bit with purchasing this car. I almost got screwed with the third gear blow-out situation that Honda hid from buyers, but I caught mines while under warranty; still, I'm holding it against them with the next car purchase.

This was suppose to be my traveling car when I retired, and I keep a second car to "save" this car from city driving, and it is primarily used for these kinds of road trips of night driving through the mountains in the middle of the night.

I've had three Honda in a row with no issues at all, but luckily, I'm a fair weather fan, and I'll stick with a brand whether they "win or win"... and Honda isn't winning in my book, so I'm abandoning them whether it is covered under warranty or not.

Check engine light comes on because engine computer has detected a fault. It could be anything, from a cheap sensor to an important component out of specifications, to a service reminder. Most shops (not necessarily Honda dealers, ) have the diagnostic equipment to hook it up to your car and tell you what is wrong, before fixing anything. Usual rates for this diagnostic is below $100, including quote for repair.

Could be a # of things. Instead of randomly guessing-take the thing into the shop and have them hook the computer up to it to look for the trouble code.  Then you can go from there to see if you want to fix the thing or if you want them to turn the light off.

Check Engine Light - 2000 Honda Accord

it could be that the air filter housing is worn and thats why they said you needed a new one what that means is that you are getting to much air into the engine and will cause check engine light to come on i would replace that and then see if it goes off and then if not go to a auto zone and they check the light and see what it is and then go from there

2002 Accord EX Check Engine Light Stays On

Some major parts stores offer free code reading. Call your local parts store and ask. Remember that codes give general information that there is a problem with an engine function, so whatever function the code reveals a problem with, can be a number of different things that could be wrong. It is a starting point on your search for the actual problem. So if you know what code # is causing the check engine light to illuminate, you still have to determine what is wrong by checking all the components of that system. It would be a great help to pick up a repair manual for your accord, good luck, God Bless, countrycurt0

Engine warning light

If you now all your basic fluid checks are all ok,than you have a computer timed check light thats coming on.If it has gone out and come on is usually something thats heat related.If all is running well and light is on,then try this ,remove the battery cables for a few seconds and put them back on. Problem light is gone.
