Question about 2000 Honda Civic

2 Answers

All lights on 2000 honda civic flicker

At engine idle flicker is not noticiable. But increase rpm and headlights and all dash lights quickly surge up and down- a slight flickering. Radio is also affected. Is this the alternator? brushes? No starting problem. Is there a modulator? How do I troubleshoot this problem?
Thanks for your help

Sounds like you have a voltage regulator problem which is in the alternator, not changable. would recommend taking it to a battery store and have them do a load test. more and likely you need a new alternator

Understand the grounding problem re; dash lights flickering, needles jumping wildly, but what is the b pillar???? Obviously not a mechanic


The "B" pillar is the term used by the manufacturer for the front pillar where the windshield is attached. Most of the dash's components ground at the "B" pillar,driver or passenger.

OIL LIGHT KEEPS FLICKERING WHILE IDLE


Most likely your sensor is too sensitive and detects the low oil pressure that exists in idle .... you oil pump is not functioning fully and at idle fails to produce the right pressure. Lastly,your idle could be set too low. try increasing the idle slightly (you don't want it too high) and see if that solves the flickering light problem

When car is at idle theres no problem, but when rpm go up all interior and headlights flicker.


Do the lights flicker brighter than they are at idle or dimmer? If they flicker brighter, voltage regulator in alternator is suspect. If they flicker dimmer, you likely have a loose power cable either on the battery or on the fuse and relay center or on the alternator.

When i turn the headlights on in my 89' honda civic hatch back, the idle slows. i tried out a little research and got something about a dashpot but that was on a miata, so uh why would it do that? and...


Firstly, turning on the headlamps applies an electrical load onto the battery and charging system.
The charging system will sense the load and increase it's output to compensate..
This compensation is why the idle RPM drops.
The alternator is driven by the engine so when the alternator has to work harder, the engine has to work harder too..
Loss of break lamps usually means a blown fuse so check all the fuses.
Check the lamp switch too..
You might even find the lamp check relay has developed a fault..
But, I would suspect a fuse or switch before anything else..

Under 2000 rpms runs bad/hesitates/check engine light


This IAC valve runs only when your foot is off the gas pedal. Mainly to keep the engine from stalling and keeping it at a safe RPM. If it is running bad under 2000RPM, more than likely its the IAC valve or a vacuum leak. Clean or replace the IAC valve....Hopefully this helps!!

Headlights flickering consistant with engine RPM. also, battery light on dash flickers with RPM


Your alternator is worn or the voltage regulator (usually built into most modern alternators) is failing.
