My service engine light came on a few days ago i thought it was the tank cap that wasnt seal completly like it should be i try that and the check engine continue im afraid it could be something serious...

your vehicle may still be under warranty. Call your local dealer and provide your VIN#, warranty is 60months/60,000 mile powertrain warranty, 96months/80,000 mile emissions warranty. I strongly recommend contacting the dealer before your vehicle hits 60,000 miles.

The check light stays on and the trac light stays on and the vsc light remains on. took it back to where i bought it at findlay honda in henderson, nevada, and they replaced the battery, and gas cap...

I would look for another mechanic that covers the warranty and have them put a OBD 2 monitor on it and see what is going on. To me from your explanation it sounds like the computer is malfunctioning and possibly needs to be replaced

It is -30c here, and when the vehicle started, the engine light stayed on. It was plugged in all night. Last night, I turned the key to auxillary, to plug in a mobile phone (for no more than 2 minutes-as...

The engine light will always come on when the key is in the auxillary position. Your only concern is when it stays on after you start the vehicle.

Horsecrap...go to an independent transmission dealer after you call the extended warranty folks and complain!
I can count the number of Honda transmissions that go bad before 300,000 miles on one hand.
Good Luck

Replacement of engine twice in 30 days

What code is it?? If your replacement engine is doing the very same thing the old one did...overheating, The problem is most likely the radiator or something besides the engine. When you replaced the engine, did you do it or did a shop take care of it? If a shop did it, they should have checked the condition of the radiator. 50% of the engine replacements that I do, I end up replacing the radiator because that was where the problem initially started.
