Question about 1994 Honda Civic
I have a 94 civic ex and when i turn the key on the check engine doesn't illuminate. I thought it was supposed to illuminate and then go out. Is that correct?
Yes, that is correct. What probably happened is the bulb for the check engine light burned out. The way to fix it is to pull the gauge cluster out and replace the bulb. It's not very hard to do either. If i remember right, for that year civic there are two screws holding the cluster trim in on the top inside by the cluster case. Then the dash peice connected to that that goes around the steering wheel just pops out and u just unplug the electrical switches and pull that whole peice out. Once that's out there should be 3 screws holding the cluster in, take those out and the cluster will pull right out. Carefully unplug the harness and speedometer cable and locate the check engine light bulb and twist a quarter turn and pull straight out. Then just replace with new bulb and reinstall the parts. If u can do it yourself you'll save a lot of money. A dealer would probably charge u an hour of labor which is somewhere around $115 depending on the dealer and location. Then the price of the bulb, probably a few bucks. Hope this helps, good luck!
