Question about 1992 Daihatsu Charade

1 Answer

Check engine light

I have a 1992 charade with just over 200 000 k's on the clock. i was driving the other night and the check engine light came on then turned off again, then a couple minutes later it happened again.
i read the manual and it says that the light is the engine control system, what is this likely to be that is causing the problem? my ECU or something else?

Your Engine check light is part of the onboard Management/diagnostics, each time it lights a fault is recorded in the Computor,(OBD) it may just be a service interval reminder?
I recommend taking it to a competant Technician and ask him if he is capable of OBD checking and clearing? You may need to have a few jobs done but if the vehicle hasn't given you problems then possibly just a routine service is required.
Good Luck!

My dash lights and shift lights are not coming on

These problems are always frustrating. Some of the charades swicth directly via the stalk on the column, while others have interposing relays. A common problem with dimmed headlights, indicators and dash lamps on the charade is caused by the fuse box retaining screws becoming loose .... these screws are also the -ve path back to the battery via the chassis.

If you have a meter, check voltages between the fuses and various metal parts to see if you can suss out a poor continuity path. Check your chassis strap between the battery -ve and the body is clean and tight.

1992 honda accord running very rough and check engine light came

If the car runs fine until it warms up, then the check engine light goes on and it all goes to hell (sputtering, dying, etc...) then it is most likely the o2 sensor. Take it to autozone and have them put it on the scanner, just be sure to bring it when the check engine light is ON.
