I took my car to the shop this weekend to put a new brake pads on it.But before i took it to the shop i notice that while im driving sometimes i have to step on a brake real hard for the car to stop completely i mention this to the mechanic and he notice it when he test drive it and besides it i told him that the brake is too stiff.
After he test drive it he called me and says that brake in the back is lockin up and i need to replace the front calipers which is cost me $460.00.including the pads.But after he finish and i test drive the car the brake pedal is still stiff nothing change.He said its normal but for me i think the pedal is not suppose to be that stiff its suppose to have a little softness in it.I dont know if this guy just makes me change caliper even though its not the real problem.What do you guys can think any idea?

The blower fan on my 95.5 rodeo cannot be turned on with the key in the on position - The engine needs to be started. If you have a bunch of dash lights on (bat, brake, etc) then that is the typical symptom of an alternator failure. The fuel pressure regulator could be the problem, but if you're seeing or saw electrical issues (dash lights etc), then my bet is on the alternator. As the alternator starts to go, the transmission will often be forced into a failsafe mode, where it stays in third gear all the time. This is another symptom of a bad alternator. But, if yours won't start, then you won't be able to experience this.

I have just started to have a problem with my 99 Rodeo that sounds a lot like yours, although I think you were able to articulate it a little better than I. I am curious as to what you've found out from the dealer. Currently, I think warming up in the mornings or a cold day for a little longer than I've had before, the problem won't happen but I'm not sure. I've been thinking about taking it to Midas to have it checked out. I don't feel like the dealers can help me out because I've tried taking my car in there for various probelms and it usually takes about 3 times before I can get anything resolved if anything.

I have the same model and same problem. I had it checked out and the anti locking brake sensor is bad. Estimated price to replace it was $500. The mechanic said it wasn't absolutely necessary to replace as long as I could stand looking at that light. So, I passed on the sensor and had them take the brake light out behind the dash. Problem solved!

I was also having poor acceleration with my 94 passport and we found out that the catalytic converter was severally clogged. Once we got that fixed it was like a new vehicle.
#1568 of 2315 94 Honda Passport Intermittently not starting. Help!
Apr 20, 2005 (11:03 am)
Hello, I have a 94 Honda Passport V6 Automatic with 94,000 Miles. I am having trouble with it Intermittently not starting. It will start fine for a few days then not start. I will let it sit for a few hours or over night and it will start right up. When I put the key in and turn it, the radio and lights will all come on but nothing else. It does not turn over, click or anything. It kind of feels like it is out of park yet the shifter will not move. I have taken it to three places and no luck. I have had all the relays replaced, got a new starter and everything else checked out. When ever I take in it they say it's in perfect condition and they cannot find anything wrong. They tell me to bring it in when it happens but they are all a hour from my house (could tow it but it would probably start by the time we got there). Can anyone help me? I am going to be having a baby in a six weeks and really need to get it fixed. You can reply to this or email me at Bobbie_foggyahoo.com or my Husband at Jamiewc27hotmail.com. Thanks

If you hear nothing when turning the key (no cranking, no click), then it is likely one of two things. The Neutral Start Switch could be intermittently failing. This switch ensures that the car can only be started in PARK or NEUTRAL. Otherwise, you may have a faulty ignition switch. Failing ignition switches can cause the car to fail to start almost randomly, with neither rhyme nor reason.
