No, usually when the check engine light comes on it giving you more of an engine or emissions problem. Your local auto store can usually check the light out and give you a problem area it may be.

Car wont start


Try resetting the Inertia switch for the fuelpump. On the drivers side, by the side above the carpet there is a kick panel. Remove the panel and press the button on the switch you see there. This will reactivate the fuelpump. This will work if the engine cranks.

If the engine does not crank, check the operation of the brakelights. If the brake lights do not work, some automakers will prevent the engine from cranking by locking out the starter. Others will set it up to allow the engine to start and not go into gear.

For this brake related problem, there is a switch on the brake pedal lever which may have been kicked by feet and is either broken or out of adjustment. The engine will crank if it did not crank before once this switch is worked on.

Abs light emergency light stay on


Hi, You should check for a sligt break fluid leak from the break light switch (attacked to the master cylinder). Yeah, I know this seems strange, but on my 2001 this leak caused all types of problems with lots of dashboard indicators. The leaking switch was a recall for Ford Trucks, but not the minivans. Hope this helps

1992 Honda Accord LX Brake Light Switch Repair


Of course you can make this repair! I'm wondering about the faulty bulb that shorted out all the brake lights...not sure if that's what happened. Your brake light switch is located on the brake pedal, up above where your foot goes. It has a plug in connector which you unplug, then loosen the locknut where it attaches to the pedal.Put in the new switch, lock nut 1st, then plug it in. Note that the locknut is the adjustment point that determines when your brake lights go on. Adjust the locknut so that the brake lights go on when the pedal is depressed within 1/2 an inch (13mm)of pushing down on it. If the switch is adjusted without enough play (say 1/8 inch or less), brake lights may flicker on and off when you go over a bump.If over 1/2 inch, brake lights might go on only if great force on pedal is used (or not at all, yikes!).For good diagrams of parts check out South Bay Honda (hondapartscheap)web site. You enter the year, model, engine, and you can scroll thru tons of parts. If you have any more questions, do not hesitate to post it for me. countrycurt0
