Question about 1994 Honda Accord

1 Answer

Not the belt, so far>>

The belt is still in tact, i was cruising at about 50 mph, The next thing i no the tacometer was reading 0, and I looked in the rearview, saw a cloud of black smoke, lost all power, cruised to a stop. tried to restart and it wouldn't. the belt has a little slack, The car does take off pretty slow, but cruises fairly well, lack of power up hill and when i kick in the gas it bucks pretty good. Any thing come to mind? Otherwise my hunt is on. First hand tests?

Try unplugging the O2 sensor and see how it runs. Your engine light will come on when you do this. Not sure if you tried this but, if your ECT (engine coolant temp) sensor may be telling the ECM that the motor is still dead cold even it may be at operating temp. When this happens it's like a carbureted car with the choke stuck shut.

07 ford territory brake lights flick on and are very touchy, due to this cruise control disconnects randomly on bumpy road. Can brake switch by pedal be adjusted so it's not so sensitive?


Alarmingly, the speedometer needle steadily winds down from 75 mph toward 50. Just as you uncurl your feet and try to accelerate back to traffic speeds, the vehicle downshifts with a lurch and abruptly climbs back to over 80 mph. So you tap the brakes and disengage the cruise control to avoid a conversation with one of the many law enforcement officers lurking behind every other billboard. Toggling the Resume switch settles things down, holding to a legal speed on both the uphill and downhill sections of the interstate. The kids in the back seat have stopped threatening to throw up, too. Then you look in your mirror 20 miles later and see the lights. Red and blue flashing lights. You're doing over 85 mph and, odds are, Smokey isn't going to believe you have the cruise set to 70. Time to find out why your cruise control has a mind of its own.
IT'S NOT A BUG, IT'S A FEATURE
Does your cruise control fall out of engagement partway up steep hills? Actually, it will normally drop out if the engine has to work too hard, mainly because after a while there isn't enough vacuum left to pull in the servo after sustained near-wide-open-throttle. You'll just have to put your foot into it. Downshifting helps. Do you have to ride the brakes on longer downhills to keep from building up excess speed? That's normal too. The cruise control only has authority to reduce engine speed to idle. It doesn't activate the brakes. Modern cars, in an attempt to improve mileage, have very tall gear ratios, low-friction engine designs, low-rolling-resistance tires and optimized aerodynamics. That long downgrade outside of town may have accelerated your '60s-era Pontiac to only a couple of miles per hour above legal. But, it may well propel your new economy car to blatantly ******* velocities unless you intervene by braking or downshifting. Does the Cruise icon on the dash light up when you turn the switch on? Duh. Check the fuse. You may need to look in the owner's manual to see which one if it's not tagged on the fuse box cover. An aftermarket cruise may have an inline fuse holder in the wiring to the controller.
If there is power to the system, the next check is the brake lights. Brake lights? Yup, cruise controls have a switch to toggle them off when you touch the brake pedal, and many use the same switch as the brake lights. If one of the brake lights has failed, the cruise control thinks the brakes are on all the time and won't come on. Same result if the switch is incorrectly adjusted or broken or jammed. Wait, there's more--if your vehicle has a manual transmission, there's a similar switch on the clutch pedal. You may need to break out a test light or multimeter to verify the function of this array of switches. These switches usually are normally closed switches, and close their contacts when the pedal is depressed. We've seen several cases of intermittent cruise control dropout caused by a brake light switch that was adjusted very tight. Any small bump would jiggle the brake pedal down far enough to toggle the brake lights on for a brief instant--long enough to shut down the cruise. Adjusting the switch to specs (usually so the brake lights come on after the pedal travels 1/2 in.) fixed it.

I have a 2001 Voyager and recenlty had to have the timing belt replaced. When I got my car back from the mechanic my speedometer needle was below the stopper so I took it back the next day and the mechanic...


My BS meter is pegged. The dash does not need to be touched to do a timing belt, the timing belt is in the engine, so what that has to do with the speedometer???? I would not take my car there as you caught him in a lie. I suspect the battery was disconnected, which is OK and things happen, so tell the customer what the deal is..... So heres what I want you to do. Hold in the trip odometer button, it will read SOF in the display, then it will tell the software numbers, codes, then will read "END" then it will do gauge checking and sweep tests, and the needle should reset to the correct "0" unless the mechanic has totally screwed it up.

1999 Ford Taurus, There are a couple things not working which may influence both, first the RPM Gauge is not working and either is the Cruise Control. I just replaced the Vehicle Speed Sensor and that...


1. Have you looked at your owners manual for location of the cruise control fuses? 2. Same for the tachometer? 3. Do you live in a wet area with alot of rain? Next chance you have, get some electric cleanout spray from NAPA spray into all cruise control connections and tach connections. 4. Check the recalls from Ford there have been issues with 99 cruise econtrol systems.

1999 jeep grand cherokee tacometer reading???


Cruising rpm even after the OD has engaged has a lot to do with the differential gear ratio and tire size.
There will always be a variation between different vehichles due to that alone.
To see if the OD is working, at about 50mph, lightly touch the brake pedal. If the rpms increase for a moment then the OD was engaged. (touching the pedal momentarily disengages it...good thing to know when hill climbing!

I was wondering what rpm should my tacometer be at when going 70 mph? it seems high and im not sure if transmission is dropping into the final gear. the overdrive doesnt work either, is it stuck in...


Cruising speed rpm should be roughly 2200 rpm If OD (lockup) is not engaging it will be running at about 3,000rpm.
If it was staying engaged, you would not have a problem at cruising speed but would be "lugging" when taking off from a standstill. OD should come on at about 45mph and the tach should show a drop in rpm.

The cruise control on my 1993 Honda Accord LX, automatic 4 cylinder works sometimes and sometimes not. It worked three days ago. It wouldn't work the next day. The following day it would. Now it won't...


Sounds like possibly a safety switch associated with the brake or shifter is engaging intermittently. There is definitely one behind the brake because when you apply the brake the cruise kicks out. Try looking for this switch and check it out.
