Hondas have an issue with the main relay. Apparently it is a device that is sensitive to temperature. If you check out the other posters for Civic and Accord, you will see quite a few others with similar problems. On the website http://autorepair.about.com/cs/troubleshooting/1/aa010301a.htm the author writes a very informative article about this problem, including how to go about diagnosing it. He writes that the problem can be exaggerated by the simultaneous failure of other parts. Good Luck.

After driving at 35 to 45 per mile for 15 to 20 miles the car hesitating, jerking and stop it will start again by permiting it to sit a few minutes


Sounds like a gas tank full of crud. Check gas filter to see if it is dirty. Also water in gas will clog gas tank filter then when car stops water will disburse and collect when engine starts again.

Break foult


I did the brakes on my 03 Passat about 2 years ago and the same thing happened to me. I took it to several places to have them figure it out any many wanted to charge an arm and a leg. With severe hesitation I took VW and they said it was a recall sensor item and would cost nothing to fix. So you may want to give VW a call and see if it is the same sensor issue.

I have a 2004 Chevy Cavalier. A couple of months ago, just after starting the car one day, the 'check engine' and 'trac off' lights both came on. I immediately shut off the car, waited approximately 5...


Many cars have the cooling fan on a thermostat or time delay, to allow it to run for a short period of time after the engine turns off, to cool the engine off. You may have just never noticed it before. So I wouldn't worry about that.
Your real problem is the blowing fuses, apparently you have a short somewhere in your wiring. Putting in bigger and bigger fuses is a great way to set fire to your wiring harness. It's possible that the wire is pinched or chafed somewhere, and perhaps when you hit a bump just right, it touches and shorts.
You may have to take this to the Chevy dealer or a GOOD independent shop to have them chase it down. Unless someone out there knows exactly what this is, it could be a tough one to find.

My 1999 Hyundai Accent stalls. After few minutes of driving, the car stops and after 15 minutes it re-starts. What is the problem?


When your driving say about 20 or 30 minutes, the car, no matter what, just dies. If the engine cools down, it will start and run just fine, for about another 20 or so minutes, and same thing? Change the coil. its bad, it over heats, and pow. when it cools, works great. Had that happen to me. hope this is the problem

1987 CHEVY CORVETTE CUTS OFF SOMETIMES WHILE DRIVING


Could be just about anything, but given that I had the same symptoms that turned out to the fuel pump, I would check that if you haven't already. Mine would run fine for a while, particularly when it was cold, and tested fine at the shop, but after a while under load, it turned out the pressure would suddenly drop to about 15 pounds. A real pain to diagnose, since when it was in the shop it wasn't under load, so it tested OK.
