1994 ACCORD DX RUNS FINE, THEN JUST SHUTS OFF AFTER ABOUT 20 MINS WITH NO WARNING LIGHTS, NO ENGINE LIGHT, NO CODES??! SOMETIMES IT TAKES 10-15 MINS TO RE-START. ANY SUGGESTIONS ON TROUBLESHOOTING? A


Likely you are draining the battery with your system use during the car operating. This drag down of the battery means that your alternator may not be working properly. Check the alternator to see if it is putting out voltage. Otherwise check the battery during operation to see a higher voltage on the terminals if it is getting charge from the alternator.

My 1996 Olds LSS doesn't idle properly,idling surges sometimes,the temp. gauge doesn't work and sometimes the heater doesn't work.It may stall while driving.If I get in and the power seats...


Your first problem is to find out why the intermittent no-power problem. Honestly, that sounds like a loose conmnection somewhere. check all your grounds for clean and tight conditions Also, battery connections and alternator connections. Double check your power distribution center for any loose wires or poor connections. Once you solve that problem, then you can diagnose the other problems with poor idle and temp. gauge.

Where is the location of the fuel pump relay


Did it run fine prior to replacing the alt and battery? Check over where you have been working,sometimes things get bumped/disconnected. Fuel pump shut-off switch is in one of the kick panels near the inside of the doors. Reach up over the top of the kick panel. The pump relay are near the battery. What happens on this model too,is the heater leaks on the computer,which is under the heater core.The coolant/water shorts it out.
