Question about 1996 Honda Civic
The orange engine light is on all the time now. It first came on during a trip out of town and was intermittent. I took it to an auto electrician and he couldn't find what was causing it. Took some numbers out (dont' know where) but it is still on. He seemed to think it wouldn't do any harm to keep driving it. They told me they had a machine which could locate the problem. Should I take it back there or to a garage? The car appears to be driving ok
I would recommend u have it looked into, but maybe by someone else. It sounds like u had the engine codes read, which is done w /a hand held scan tool. It plugs in to a port under the dash, and reads codes stored on the cars computer. The engine light on indicates an emissions problem. When u bring it in, ask for the codes for your records. U can bring the honda to a parts store, and most will check the codes as a free service, and offer advice on what is wrong. Your 1st mechanic apparently erased the codes w/out fixing the problem(s), that's why the light came on again. Let me know how u make out.
