Question about Honda Accord

Check engine light

When I run a diagnostic on my 98 Accord, it says I have a problem with my H20s. I have replaced it and reset the computer. The check engine light comes back on after a mile or so.

Remove the sensor and remove the anti seize from the threads and in the hole and reinstall. O2 sensors are supose to be installed dry for the best ground.

How to Reset check engine light on 98 mustang after a loose gas cap triggered an evap.sensor

How do you know the gas cap did it ? If the check light is on their are DTC'S - diagnostic trouble codes stored in the PCM - engine computer . Your 98 mustang can store hundreds of DTC'S ! You take it to a qualified repair shop and have it diagnosed .That's how you have check engine light turned off .

Diagnostic Codes

If they are old, just replace them. I know $75 a pop is a bit pricy, but dont just buy one. Buy a set if the ones your replacing are old. If one is going out, the other is shortly behind. I dont really have a preferance so choose at your own will.

98 honda accord how to clear check engine light car is fixed

You need an OBD-II scantool to reset the Check Engine light. Places like Autozone will read your codes for you but most will not reset the Check Engine light because of liability issues. You need to either purchase a code reader with reset capability or find someone who has one to do it for you.

Check engine lite is on

after you replace the part, you will have to put the diagnostic computer back on again to clear the code to reset the light.

Honda accord 2003 v6

If you live near an AutoZone they used to offer free check engine light diagnostics.
See what code they can retreive from the computer with their device and check it against the list of codes. It may not just be a missing Gas cap code. There are hundreds of codes computers can return.

Best Wishes.

You cant solve the problem without knowing what is causing the light to come on. Run the car through a code scanner then you can get some help.
