1999 Honda Civic VTiS starting problems

I have a 1999 Honda Civic vtis which has stood idle for 3 months and now won't start easily and cuts out at low revs. Honda dealer says it's an electrical problem that they can't find - high voltage error codes x 3 possibly an earthing problem. Never had any problems with it before. Any suggestions?

SOURCE: idling problem when ac turned on honda civic lxi 1999

Hi,

To my knowledge (at least in my country), some Honda Civics have a compensator solenoid the pushes on the throttle that adjust the engine's RPM to its standard idling when the A/C compressor is activated. Technically, this solenoid is nothing more but a coil and a plunger. When the compressor runs, the same relay activates this solenoid and pushes the plunger forward increasing the RPM. Pls check/clean/adjust/replace as deemed fit and necessary.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

SOURCE: 2004 Honda Civic -Code P0122 Throttle Position Sensor Voltage Low

yes, this is the case of a failed throttle body, in which case it needs replaced, the car is getting too much fuel causing the high idle. this needs replaced asap. you could proably find a small independant honda shop that could do the work for less.

SOURCE: 1986 Honda Accord DX - too high idle on cold start

1986-1989 Honda Accord with Carburetor have a very bad habit that is little known even by most mechanics but easily fixed at home. The vacuum port on the choke opener that is connected to the intake manifold and both vacuum ports on the fast idle unloader get plugged up with nasty hard carbon almost as hard as metal. When this happens the choke sticks closed and the idle sticks on fast idle when the engine is cold and nobody can figure out why. All you have to do is attach a small drill bit to the end of a flexible socket-driver extension and put it in a variable speed drill that will let you run it real slow and carefully drill out the vacuum ports that are plugged. After they are nice and clean use a vacuum pump tester to make sure the choke opener and fast idle unloader are working before putting it all back together. It's amazing how much better the car runs after cleaning out those ports.

SOURCE: my car wont move forward or reverse

Chances are is that the torque converter needs to be replaced. However, the transmssion on this vehicle are only serviceable by transmision shops. No regular mechanic will open up the transmission. When the torque converter fails (clutch and plates shutters to small pieces) the debri flows in the transmision thereby potentially destroying the gears and/or clogging the filter and pump. Go straight to a reputable transmission shop and let them correctly diagnose the transmission.

I HAVE A 1999 HONDA CIVIC WITH A P0505 CODE


JUST to be safe, pull the 3 pin plug on the IAC while the engine is idling. Does the idle change (speed should increase or start to fluctuate)? If not, you've got another bad IAC or there's a problem with the wiring/PCM that's not permitting it to work properly.

The code indicates there is an problem with your Idle Air Control System. Most likely failure is that the IAC system failed. There is an 3 pin from the IAC. Remove it from IAC when your engine is idling.Check whether there is an idle speed change? IF it does not fluctuate then your IAC has gone bad,

Cuts out when idle


the idle air control valve usually takes over the idle after coming to a stop with no gas being given by the driver if it is not working properly the car will not idle at all this is probably what the problem is
