Question about 2003 Honda Accord

2 Answers

A/C problems I have a honda accord 2003 4 cyl. My a/c comes on cools well and goes off after sometime and will not come up for a long time and later comes up again. I started experiencing this problem when I changed by engine serpentine beltthat drves the compressor and later found out it was the wrong (small) size. I have checked the compressor, which is ok and the clutch seems not to re-engage until a long period. Could the clutch field coil be the problem or the thermostat is not cutting off the compressor on time before it gets very hot or what could be the possible problem

There is not a site glass on your Accord, nor is there a freon canister. There isn't even any freon. It is R134A. Freon was discontinued a few yrs ago because it hams the environment. It doesn't sound like the clutch field coil. It either works or it's broken. It doesn't come and go. When you changed the belt, did you disconnect anything? Chech the pug in connection on the compressor and any sensors on the AC lines. Finally, have some r134a serviced into it. It's fairly cheap to go and get it recharged and the pag oil can be added along with some dye to locate any leaks now or in the future. If you feel skilled enough, you can buy the stuff at your local parts store. Low fill can cause your symptoms.
If you still have the problem after the refrigerant is filled and all plugs are connected, you may have damaged your compressor with the smaller belt. So... Finally, Tell me more about the belt. How did you later find out it was too small? Did the compressor start making noise?

A/C works on a principal of compressing the gas in the system and sending it to the cool condensor in the car where it cools the vehicle, then goes to the front condensor where it releases the heat generated by the process. Several things can be happening here; the front condensor is plugged up with bugs and debris and needs to be cleaned; the interior condensor is freezing up from moisture freezing on it; the small control valve that makes the whole thing work is freezing up and the system is on hole untill it thaws and then it starts working again. There could be a problem with the amount of freon in the system. In the front of the engine next to the condensor is a freon storage canister with a small glass window in the top of it. With the airconditioning running look in the window and see if there is fluid running smoothly thru it of if it is bubbly and foamy going by the window. If bubbly and foamy then the A/C needs to be serviced. The compressor clutch will not work untill the system has the right pressure on the safety switch in the system. Good luck, RAC

1990 Honda Accord Temp Gauge goes up to the extremely hot (to the end of the hot) mark on the gauge all of a sudden and then drops back down to the Normal mark after about 15 seconds. I drove the car...


Fan coming on after shutdown is okay, and needed. Check for full coolant, and bleeding of any air in the system. Be sure that the heater is on FULL hot during filling.
Then pressure test the cooling system and fix any leaks. Your issue sure sounds like sticking thermostat or low coolant.

I had the same problem on my 1999 Honda Accord 4 cyl. It was the ignition switch. I received a letter from Honda regarding a recall on the ignition switch and had it replaced. 3 years after replacement it would turn off again & this time I purchased part from eBaby & replaced it myself. It hasn’t stalled since.

Brake pedal goes down to far very intermittently.


The fact that you say it is an intermitant problem makes me think your new master cyl is no good. If it happened all the time , I would suggest bleeding the system , and adjusting (tightening) the rear brakes.
If it is the Master , I would expect you would loose a bit of fluid , but you might not see any because it would be leaking out the end of the master and into the booster unit.

1991 honda accord lx cooling fan


Some vehicles have sensors that can control the electric fan with the ignition off to keep the heat buildup that naturally occurs right after turning off the engine. This can prevent hard starting that can happen with a hot engine. If it is doing this an abnormal amount, the sensor that is operable with the ignition off may be failing. Before turning off the ignition, check to see if the engine temperature is pushing the 'red zone;' if it is, then the fan operation may be normal but your engine may be running hot.

1990 honda accord 2 dr-4 cyl -the heater will not blow hot air---any thoughts thanks


First thing to check is your coolant level in radiator itself. Take cap off, start engine, turn heater (not defrost) on & watch & see if level goes down at all, if it does top it up & keep adding as needed until rad fan comes on 2 or 3 times, then goes off. Put cap back on, fill return bottle to mark & try it. Did this just happen, was it o.k. before?
