Question about 1998 Honda Civic

1 Answer

My engine light has appeared on my Honda a few months back, I unplugged the battery and the engine light has reappeared. I got a diagnostic test done at Partsource and the following codes appeared p1336, p300, p301, 302, 303, 304 and P1399. Could a simple spark plug change make the light go off or not?

    This is awkward....I had my timing belt and water pump replaced 27,000 km ago.

No, I doubt if the spark plugs are the issues. They never fail to fire,they just need repalcing after 60,000 miles of wear.

You have cylinder misfires shown, on several cylinders, as well as crank sensor and cam sensor, codes

You would appear to have timing issues,that effect those sensors.

Most likely your timming belt is worn, and it jumped a couple of teeth

    May just be a bad sensor,not a timing issue
    It has to be diagnosed properly
    Sometimes the belt tensioners etc, are not replaced,so never know what was done before

Reset check engine light

The light could be blinking because you haven't driven it enough for it to register. Drive it for awhile and check again. If the light still blinks, you will need to know what code it has.

did you change your battery or have a load test performed on it,it could be bad.
Have your mechanic change the wire harness for the alternator at the plug,they can burn out on the inside and look good on the outside,They are black 10 guage with orange stripe,and smaller guage plug wires.This part canbe purchased from the parts store, or dealer.

Error Codes

These may have been set by the battery change and are what GM calls phamtom codes, clear the codes with the following.
Try this and see if the codes go away.

1. Re-enter diagnostics via the climate control panel and after all the codes appear you will see .7.0

2. Simultaneously push and hold the OFF and HI (^) buttons on the climate control panel until you see E.0.0 and release both buttons.

3. Turn ignition key OFF, Wait 15 seconds and re-enter diagnostics and see if the codes reappear. If they do NOT reappear, You are good to go.
After you have done this try starting the engine and see what codes re-appear, also run and OBD 2 test of the system at the diagnostic connector, this will give P codes that we are better able to find definitions for, the E codes are unique to just a few GM cars.

Dodge Caravan 2003 airbag and engine light

Sounds like the HVAC control head needs to be recalibrated. The procedure is fairly easy, Heres how its done:

Set Blower motor ON HIGH
Set Mode position to Panel
Set Temperature to Cold (Both slide pots if equipped)
Depress WASH and REAR WIPER button simultaneously for 5 Seconds (Until all LED's light)
All LED's will turn on for 5 Seconds
Calibration Test is running when REAR WIPER and INTERMITTENT are alternately flashing. Cooldown test is running if A/C and RECIRC are alternately flashing.
Acceptable results is REAR WIPER LED is the only LED flashing. Push Rear Wiper to exit.
After all tests have passed, Calibration Diagnostics and Cooldown can be run separately.

After that the lights should go out and everything should work properly as long as everything is in proper working order.

Good Luck
