Hi,
If it's a digital display, with 'dead' pixels, this is often because the ribbon-cable which drives this function is not making a proper connection to the PCB behind the gauge.
To check, you will need to free the display binnacle and have a look at the connections at the back of the display.
Look for a ribbon-cable, which a thin, flat type of cable. (Sometimes it's a group of thin wires glued together & sometimes it's like a piece of thick film, with thin metal tracks inside it)
Carefully release the ribbon-cable from the back of the gauges, clean-up the contacts with Cotton-bud & white spirit or maybe an old toothbrush.
Then carefully refit the cable.
If there is more than one ribbon-cable & it's not obvious which one is for the fuel-display, you made need to do all of them.
Best of luck.

    Thank you for your help, about how much will it cost if I have a mechanic do it? Maybe a ballpark, thanks

    A small workshop should spend no more than 2 hours on that job, so whatever your local hourly rate is x 2.?
    Cheers.

SOURCE: 1989 honda civic randomly hard to start

Is the vehicle wanting to turn over? If not at all, look at the ignition switch, sometimes the contacts wear down and intermittant problems arise, such as not starting or car will die while driving.

it sounds to me that the instrument cluster has gone bad. not for certain because I cannot see it but if you have a mechanic tell you that it is a very strong possibility.

SOURCE: Burning smell when I drive in 1993 Honda Civic 4 door

the info of the problem is to broad, what type of smell is it plastic smell wire smell rubbery gassy? theres to many smells a car can generate while driving down a highway to narrow it down to just clutch plate or brake pads

although yes both can make a smell down the highway its more than likely a grease or liquid burning you should check your engine for leaks mainly around the head and tranny and also check your boots and joints it could even be you picked something up off the road and its now stuck on your pipes burning try it all out

Hi,
This might be caused by the faulty connection of part of the 'ribbon-cable' at the back of the dashboard display.?
You'll need to remove the display so that you can see the back of the dials & gauges.
Carefully release the ribbon-cable & clean up the contacts with a cotton-bud & white spirit or maybe an old toothbrush.
Then carefully reconnect the ribbon-cable & reassemble the dashboard.
Best of luck.

I have 2007 honda civic and need to reset the service light?


  1. Edit Step 15 ¶ When it's time to change the oilin your Civic, the maintenance light (orange wrench) will appear on your dash, as well as a B1 message, showing an oil life of 15% or less. To reset the Oil Life % gauge, press and hold the SEL/RESET button for about 10 seconds until the Oil Life message begins to flash.

2006 HONDA CIVIC GEAR SHIFT LIGHT BULB REPLACEMENT


all you have to do is pop the little square piece around the gear shift lever up and there is a wire with a tiny bulb on it. It is a pain in the butt to get all the pieces back in place and put the square piece back down. i have had to replace mine like every 6 months. be careful not to use too much force because you can break the clips that secure it in place and that will look worse than your bulb not working

My 2011 civic has a burnt coolant smell after driving it. Dealer said engine is fine and there is no leak. Yet they said the smell is burning coolant?


You can have them put a die into the coolant. After driving for a little bit they will be able to look for the traces the die leaves behind with a uv light.

1991 honda civic hb si please help!!


Sounds like it may be a vacuum line problem...double check all the hoses and make sure none are off or broken/missing. Check over the IAC (Idle Air Control) valve too and inspect & clean it out with carb clean or something, could be that the valve's sticking
