You need to put the blower motor back on the factory connection because it runs through a relay to keep the amperage within its factory settings. without it you will continue to drain your charging system as well as damage your sytem if not. If you can locate the original factory wiring for the stereo, it would be best to get power from that source because it is run through the ignition system which shuts off the power when you turn the engine off and remove the key from the ignition. I dont know if your running an amp for your stereo but that can also drain your battery as well as damage your charging system if not properly installed. You may need to seek a qualified individual to help resolve these problems if you are unable to do so yourself. Your cars electrical and charging system was designed specifically for each component within your vehicle and should not be modified unless you have someone qualified to do so. hope you can fix your problem!

When i have a full tank of gas my honda civic runs fine when it brakes when it uses gas it stalls when i brake


Hello James, It sounds to me that the gasoline pick up tube has come off of the electric fuel pump. The tube should reach to the bottom of the tank.

if the motor oil was out I'm afraid the engine was damaged and some bearings of it make now noise and other problems.
then you need to look for a replacement motor from a junkyard or eBay....as rebuilding the engine might be too expensive... 24results for 1989 Honda Civic

1990 Honda Civic Stall out and wont immediately restart


Disassemble and clean the carb, particularly the jets. I suspect the charge light being on is a result of your destroyed battery, which needs to be replaced. Sta-bil over the winter and a smart trickle charger will prevent the problems you are having in the future...

thank u

91 honda civic dx. Starts, runs for a few seconds then stalls


Try pounding on the gas tank with a rubber mallet or similar tool. (careful not to dent the tank) Try starting it. If it runs, replace the fuel pump (it's nfg). I've diagnosed numerous fuel pumps this way. Remember the pump needs to be replaced, if you drive it, you don't know when it'll fail for good. Hope this helps. Please post the results.

Engine stalls, check engine light, not fuel filter.


the white smoke as it stalls could be steam in the exhaust. This is caused by coolant leaking into cylinders from a leaking head gasket. You should check cylinder compression next with a compression tester.
