This either had a bad tensioner or your belt broke. There are several pulleys and if they start wobbling, almost anything can happen. You should be able to manually grab and rotate each pulley to check for wobble and roughness.

The tensioner is a spring loaded bracket with a pulley.

All the red lights come on,like when you start the car, but car starts and the power steering does not work. Engine is over heating but gage does not show it.


Open the hood and look at your engine for a Serpetine belt. If the belt broke and fell off you would have no power steering, no water pump for cooling and no Alternator for charging the Battery.

Serpitine belt routing?


if there is not a sticker under the hood, it will also have a diagram in the manual. to relieve the tension idler there is an indenttion in the front of the arm. you put a 3/8 rachet into the end and turn it to move the idler this is a spring belt tension. i have seen people pull tug and use screwdrivers trying to get them on. and never notice the rachet hole. flat to flat and groove to groove is basic, and should work. however a chevy blazer belt can be put on perfectly two different ways. but one way the belt will come out about 3/4inch too long.

'91 Honda Accord LX transmission light on.


You say "standard transmission?" Do you mean "standard" as in "manual/5 spd./'stick-shift'?" transmission?

Either way, if you replaced the alternator belt and the battery light went away and the car doesn't sputter or stop, then it's the "speed sensor" on the transmission itself. The car will still drive, but the speedometer cannot read how fast the car is going (in RPM's as well).
