My temperature goes right to hot as soon as i turn on the car


The thermostat may be your problem. Remove the thermostat and check to see that it's closed. Put the thermostat in hot water. The thermostat should be open when the water is near boiling. If the thermostat is OK, the temperature sensor may be faulty.----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Overheating at idle but fan works when a/c is on


The A/C is linked to the fan and that is why the always comes on when you switch on the A/C.
There is also a temperature sensor/relay that monitors the engine water temperature and turns on the fan when the water temperature is hot.
This temperature and relay maybe faulty. Check the fuse that controls the fan, if it is OK then the temperature sensor or relay is faulty.

Car reads that it is overheating. Took it into dealership for diagnostic, was told it is NOT overheating and that it needs a 'control panel' My Questions "Where Is The Control Panel??" ...


the control panel is your dash board. unfortunately, honda dealers are not always accurate about their work. the best way to make sure your car is not overheating is by using a temperature gun and pointing it at the engine. if you dont have a temperature gun, then you can check using your fans. your fans, are designed to turn on for periods of around 10 seconds when the car reaches a certain temperature. so what you can do, is turn on the car, let the car reach its operating temperature, and start watching the fans. if your car starts to overheat and the fans dont turn on at all, it either means your tw is bad, or your fan switch is bad. if your car begins to over heat and the fans come on and dont turn off, then it means your car really is over heating. if your dash shows your car over heating and the fans turn off after a couple of seconds, then once again, it points to a bad tw. the tw(water temperature sensor) is sends the temperature of the coolant to the dash, and do go bad some times. it is pretty simple to change. directly under neath the distributor, there are two sensors with cables attached to them. one of the sensors which has two wires, is the etc(enging temperature control) and the other one with only one wire is the tw(water temperature sensor). if your car is not over heating, then it most likely points to that because when the dash goes bad, usually more than one of the needles goes bad, or the needle jumps alot. hope this helps, and if you need more help, leave a comment and ill be glad to help. goodluck

Where is the temperature sensor for the temperature gage


Engine Temperature Sensor Operation:00116_engine_temp_sensor.jpgThis sensor monitors the temperature of the engine and sends that information to the engine control computer to regulate the amount of fuel needed - more if engine is cold and less if it's hot. The signal generated can also be sent to the temperature gauge as a visual indicator of overheating and imminent danger

I checked with autozone.com and their site says that the engine temperature sensor is not used on both engine sizes available for this vehicle.

The Coolant Temperature Sensor is used though. So maybe it has a dual purpose on your vehicle.

Coolant Temperature Sensor Operation:00113_coolant_temp_sensor.jpgThis sensor monitors the temperature of the engine and sends that information to the engine control computer to regulate the amount of fuel needed. More fuel is needed if the engine is cold; less if it's hot. If the temperature is extreme, the signal will be sent to the temperature gauge as a visual indicator of overheating and imminent danger.

Because ECT (engine coolant temperature) sensor procedures vary depending upon their location, first locate the part. You may need to partially drain the engine coolant to prevent coolant spillage.
  • Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  • Unplug the ECT.
  • Then, unscrew it.
  • Reverse the removal procedures to install the new part.
  • Connect the negative battery cable to the battery.
