Question about 1989 Honda Civic

1 Answer

My parking lights, dash lights, and sunroof all quit!!!

I went out to my car to get in it while it was storming(of course!) and it would not start. I finally tracked that problem to recieving no power at the coil. I ran a new power wire to the coil and she runs great. at the same time all of the back lights for the dash, the parking/running lights, and the sunroof quit working. The headlights had also quit but they have since started working again and I still have brake and turn lights but no parking. I have checked every fuse in the car and not a single one is bad. I don't seem to be able to find any relay that is bad either. Any ideas?

Maybe you don't get enough amperes to power other electric things.

Overheating after about 20 mins running

I've had the same problem, twice!

The solution is 2 fold:
1. Replace the filler cap on the overflow bottle, the genuine RR part works best;
2. Replace the 'O' Rings on the heater matrix under the dash. This last is quite a fiddly job, go to for full details on how to do it. If you take the vehicle to a RR dealer they want to charge huge amounts of money because they replace the entire heater box not just the 'O' rings.

Good luck
