If the car shuts down after the service engine lights on, possible problem is the igniter on your ignition coil. You have to replace the igniter. I had the same problem before with my esi 93 and honda car shop fixed it by replacing the said part. It is better to have the code scanned first. If it gives you 1 long flash followed by 5 short flashes, definitely it is the igniter.
Hi, this symptom is usually due to a starter with a shorted winding. Recommend you remove the starter and have it tested at the parts store. Let me know if you need instructions for removing the starter, and thanks for using FixYa.
i've found on hondas when the there is a no start problem when the engine spins over fine. when the plugs wear out the cylinders get washed down with gas and it sounds like it has no compression. if this is what its doing put a little bit of oil in each cylinder not too much though then put new plugs iin it, however if there is no spark at the plugs it's probably the distrubutor
is your antifreeze level dropping lower on local small trips
pressure test the antifreeze system to make sure there is no hose leaking
i hope u used a new thermostat because they sometimes get stuck open
please help me... i have a 96 honda civic. and my doors will not lock unless i push the locks down before i get out. its not the battery on my keys b/c when i push lock my headlights flash but my doors won't lock... and also my speedometer goes in and out. i got a speed sensor from a junk yard but it still didn't work. so i'm guessing its not that or if so that was just a bad sensor. and i don't want to go pay lots of money since my car is old and not sure what is wrong if it. so i don't want to buy parts and replace if its not the problem. please help me someone. i'm a girl and don't have a guy to help me. thanks!!!!
