Question about 1998 Honda Civic

1 Answer

I have 1998 Honda civic. The CEL comes on and when we check the error code it shows the code 76. This code is not listed in the error codes list in the car's repair manual. It is also not listed in any of the lists on the internet. This code comes back after driving about 100 miles after resetting the computer. Could you help us with this diagnostic? We will appreciate the help.

    This code does not exists on the Honda system, could you tell me how or where you got this code please.

  • vinodmalhotr Sep 16, 2010

    The car is DX, 4 cyl, 1.6L, Sedan 4 door.O2 sensor.

    Also the car has new spark plugs, new air filter and a new Primary

    I got the code by following directions posted on Internet at the following site:
    http://www.c-speedracing.com/faq/06.php

    Below is the procedure described at the above site for checking the ECU code. (Please note that there is a also a picture of the actual location of the connector in the car on the web site. I could not copy and paste the picture here. If you go on the above web location you will find exactly where the connector location is.)

    "CHECKING THE ECU CODES"

    "If your CEL has illuminated, it is more helpful to know WHY it has lit up instead of just guessing at the problem... How do you find out what the error is? Well you will need a short piece of wire or a paperclip.

    On the passenger side of your car, under the dash beneath the glove box, you will find a green cover above the kickpanel that houses a blue connector that has two wires.

    That you need to do is turn the ignition off, and using the piece of wire or paperclip, jump the blue connector so that you connect the two wires together. Basically stick one end of the paperclip or peice of wire into one prong on the connector and stick the other end of the paperclip or wire into the other prong.

    Once you have done this, turn the key to the IGN position and watch your CEL light. It will illuminate in a series of flashes."

    I have used this process previously and found it to provide correct results.

    Thanks for your help.

    I sent a reply to your question a little while ago. It seems that the reply did not post correctly. It should read: The car is DX, 4 CYL, 1.6 L, Sedan 4 door. It has new spark plugs, new air filter and a new Primary O2 sensor. I got the error code by following directions posted on Internet at the following address: http://www.c-speedracing.com/faq/06.php. My previous reply also provides the process as described at the above Internet site. Thanks for your help.

    Does the light MLC actually flash this code or is this the code you get when you jumper the DLC connector?

    What I'm trying to figure out is what was the actual problem in the first place, and also as I mentioned earlier the code 76 doesn't exists in the Honda MLC codes program.
    You may have to recheck this just to make sure that is the code your getting.

  • vinodmalhotr Sep 17, 2010

    I appreciate your comments. I rechecked the code and it seems that I read the code incorrectly initially. The code is flashed by the Check Engine light and should be 67 which may indicate a Secondary O2 sensor problem or the Catalytic converter efficiency problem.

    My question now is: Should I change the Secondary O2 sensor? How difficult is it to change this sensor? Can this sensor be changed from the top or will need to go under the car? What are the chances that it may fix the problem?

    I will appreciate your advice on above questions.

    Thanks

    Ok,

    This is a simply fix, it will need to be done under the vehicle, and is positioned in the catalytic converter.
    Just replace it and this should fix your problem.

1998 Mazda Millenia The check engine light stays on?


Check engine light (CEL) can come on for all types of issues..from bad thermostats to lose gas caps. Flashing CEL is a real warning and it's best to pull over asap and shut it off..

It could be oxygen sensor.. catalytic converter.. the list of possible causes is long.

Many auto parts stores will scan the electronic control module to get the error code(s) that will help identify the problem(s).

It would be a good idea to call a few local part stores to see if they will do this for you.. typically for free. Dealerships can charge as much as a hundred dollars to do this.

Once you have the code you can either research it on-line or in many cases the people running the scan will be able to provide you with the solution.

The simplest thing to check is your gas cap. If worn missing or lose.. it will throw a CEL.

Best of luck

Check Engine light going on for a '98 Civic Hatchback


Well, go to Auto Zone and have them read the error code it is setting. They'll tell you what the issue is. Usually, if it's not running hot and the oil light is not coming one, you can drive it for a while. It could be something you need to have repaired, though, or it may cause more damage.

Rough idle and loss of power


you have a random misfire problem. probably causing the car to go into "limp mode" which causes the power loss. check your ignition timing, it is probably too far advanced. if that is not the problem you may need new spark plugs/wires/cap/rotor (ignition tune-up). but check the timing first.
