Question about 1990 Honda Accord

2 Answers

We bought our 1990 Honda Accord used and it came with no owner's manual. What does the "S" mean on the dashboard warning lights? Does it require service? Presumably an oil change? Thank you!

NO, IT DOES NOT MEAN OIL CHANGE.....THE "S" IS AN INDICATOR LIGHT WHICH INFORMS YOU THAT THE CAR IS IN "SPORT SHIFT" MODE. What that means is that with the light on the computer will raise the shift point to a higher engine RPM. Hit the button on the shift lever and the shift point RPM returns to normal. Also another function of this light is to diagnose possible engine trouble codes. It the S light stays on no matter if the sport shift button is pressed in or out then that means trouble. You can pull the code your self by simply removing the passenger side kick panel and locating the empty two wire plug and use a piece of wire to bridge the two wire terminals. The S light will begin to flash and pause. long flashes equal 10 and short flashes equal 1

    Boneebone is WRONG! and he is a GURU? Not on Hondas..."S" light on right side of gauges is for Sport mode. The switch is on the shifter below the shifter selector button on a 1990 Accord anyways.

Hi, my brake lamp stays on after turning ignition on in honda accord 1988 carb despite all brake lamps are working fine no burnt one, I appreciate your help


Majdi, if you mean the brake warning light in the dash is on after starting your car, the light is telling you there is a fault/problem with the braking system. You should not continue to drive if the brake warning light is on, as your brakes could fail. You will have to have a good shop check your brakes and diagnose problem and estimate repair. Check the attached links,instruction and guides, Good luck

Just bought my Honda accord 2007 but it did not come with book. When the wrench sign on the dashboard is lit what does that mean. It also shows oil......15% does it need oil change?


The wrench on your dash board means that maintenace is required. if your oil is at 15% it is time for an oil change and the tech that changes your oil will reset the light.

SERVICE NOTIFICATION LIGHTS 1992 HONDA ACCORD


If this is the Maintenance Required light it means there is regularly scheduled maintenance that needs to be done. Can mean you just need to change the oil/filter. Refer to your owner's manual to be sure. If it is the Check Engine light it means there is a problem with the emissions system and you need to seek the help of a professional.

It means it's time for service---- to change engine oil -- check air filter and various maintence stuff--- if you have the owners manual it will show you what service to perfoam and to log it in the service book.
Also has intructions in the owners manual as to how to reset the service warning light-- kind of tricky but once you get it it's pretty simple.

What is the "S" dashboard indicator light for a 1990 Honda Accord DX. It is to the right of the Door Ajar indicator under the Temperature Gauge.


it means your car is in "sport." on the shifter there should be a button, and pressed in means "sport" and not pressed in is "normal." normal gives better gas mileage.

Hey i bought my car in march 2006, i have a 99 honda accord lx v4 i am having trouble with the maintenance check light. when i start the car and the light flashes about ten times before it turns off....


Look at the owners manual it will tell you how to turn it off. But before you do that check your milage with the maintance interval list located in the owners manual. The maintance light goes on when a certain milage is obtained which will describe the type of maintence is required.
