What does "mapping" mean? See "Your Problem" for details

1993 Honda Civic 5-door (hatchback): Malfunction Indicator Lamp/Check Engine Light came on. Took to regular mechanic. He said the "mapping" is the problem. What is this? He quoted $300.00 for repair. Waiting for part. He also said ok to drive for now until he gets the part. Light does not stay on. Comes on ocassionally. What's the scoop?

My service engine light comes on after I have been driving for 20 or 30 minutes goes through cycle again after stopping and turn key off 93 Honda civic hatchback DX


If the car shuts down after the service engine lights on, possible problem is the igniter on your ignition coil. You have to replace the igniter. I had the same problem before with my esi 93 and honda car shop fixed it by replacing the said part. It is better to have the code scanned first. If it gives you 1 long flash followed by 5 short flashes, definitely it is the igniter.

1993 crown vic the check engine light goes on only with highway driving what could it be . When Im park and restart it its off again


You a have a check light on

That is called a MIL Lamp (Malfunction Indicator Lamp)

That not new to the auto industry

OBD1 Systems like yours stared in 1983 thru 1995

OBD2 is 1996 trhu 2013

So you check for codes every time you get any
dash light that doesn't go off once the engine is running

I would think you have experience with check lights & codes,
for decades with all your vehicles

Once you get the codes, I would guess your off to a repair shop,
as you didn't state you had codes or experience with cars & the
systems of the past 31 years

Check Engine light going on for a '98 Civic Hatchback


Well, go to Auto Zone and have them read the error code it is setting. They'll tell you what the issue is. Usually, if it's not running hot and the oil light is not coming one, you can drive it for a while. It could be something you need to have repaired, though, or it may cause more damage.

Check engine light


P0041 Downstream Oxygen Sensors Swapped From Bank To Bank
How does a P0041 code trigger the check engine light? This code will trigger the light to come on under the following condition:

The Heated Oxygen Sensor Monitor, a strategy built into the computer, determines if the Heated Oxygen Sensor (HO2S) signal response for a change in fuel trim corresponds to the correct engine bank. If a response from the Oxygen Sensor being tested is not indicated, a trouble code will be set and the MIL (Malfunction Indicator Lamp) will illuminate.
Possible Causes:
Crossed Heated Oxygen Sensor harness connectors
Wiring swapped from one Oxygen Sensor connector to the other
Wiring changed at the computer connection or in the related harness

Honda civic hatchback idles really high


The person that told u that it was the tps and idle air they we're completely right!! The tps sensor is what makes it do that. If you pull the air intake of there's 2 holes on the throttle body. Plug one of the off with your finger while the engine is idling high and it should come down mine was the top hole. If it does go down just get a new tps sensor. and the back sensor on the intake to be safe. or the ghetto way is to plug the hole off, not my sugestion.

An intermittant check engine light ( MIL, malfunction indicator lamp) usually means the system has noticed some trouble that has either corrected itself or has been compensated for. You can have a shop check the DTCs ( Diagnostic Trouble Codes), or for pending codes ( problems noticed but not enough to store a fault code)
