Question about Honda Civic

1 Answer

I have a 2002 Honda Civic LX that is nearing its 100,000 mile mark. About two weeks ago the lights in the dash started periodically faltering. When this happens all the lights go out, and the odometer flashes all zeros and then once it starts working again the mileage reappears. Additionally, when I turn on my headlights the lights where my (automatic) gears light up doesn't work. What's wrong?

You may have a defective ignition starter switch. this switch is located to the back of the ignition lock cylinder which actuated it. The switch is known to have this type of symptoms when it starts to fail. You need to remove the steering column **** shell plastic covers to see and replace the switch.

SOURCE: 1995 Honda Accord LX -- odometer failure

Has the speedometer failed to?? if so, you are probably in need of the cable that runs from your transmission to the back of the speedometer.This item is called the speedometer cable.If just the odometer itself failed then you have to pull the cluster and have it serviced typically i take mine to the dealer if that happens. (just the cluster,not the whole car.) hope this helps.

What type of Honda Civic do you have? There is a difference between the LX and EX civic exhaust systems. And your vehicle will not pass inspection with your check engine light on.

Check engine light comes on because engine computer has detected a fault. It could be anything, from a cheap sensor to an important component out of specifications, to a service reminder. Most shops (not necessarily Honda dealers, ) have the diagnostic equipment to hook it up to your car and tell you what is wrong, before fixing anything. Usual rates for this diagnostic is below $100, including quote for repair.

2002 honda civic LX oil change


A synthetic is good if you don't mind going 15 to 20,000 miles between changes. If you're one of the compulsives that change oil every 3000 or 5000 miles, don't bother with synthetics, because they're expensive. You probly need a thinner grade of oil, tho, like a 5-20. Thinner grades will help your gas mileage, but check your manual.
