#663 of 812 oh god help me...
Sep 13, 2006 (4:13 pm)
ok i just recently purchased a 1992 acura legend 4 dr sedan,i have every piece of paper work ever done on the vehicle from the previouse owner. my current problem is when i turn the car on the fans run for about 1 minute and then shut off and wont turn back on, the car temperature gauge slowly goes up to the red line the whole time theres no heat inside my car and the fans do not come on. the car has had replaced within the last 5 months;radiator, t belt, water pump, therastat, all the radiator hoses and clamps, head gaskets,...im not exactly sure what my problem could be at this point, i put about 1/2 qt of radiator fluid in it when i first got it and its been staying at pretty much the same fluid level since. HELP

I would think the relays and thermoswitches responsible for fan operation would be good things to have tested.

Just traded in my 92 Legend for an 06 RL. Sniff, I'll miss her.

I am in the same boat...I LOVE MY '92 LEGEND! How do you like the RL in comparison? I haven't made it to the car lots yet. My mechanic told me I had to give in this time...small leak in head gasket...diagnosis: cost too much to fix...I actually cried!
#668 of 812 Radio has gone whacky

My 95 legend LS is having some electrical problems - memo lights on seat adjusts blink continuously-runs battery down after few days-???, D4 light blinking, speedometer is nuts (VSS problem I've read re last 2 complaints), door locks a bit crazy (actuators, I've read) but now a new one: FM radio will not stay tuned. Goes into a scan on its own and will not stop anywhere. AM tuner and tape player function fine. Any ideas about this? This problem started right before the speedometer one.
Are all these items related by any chance?
I have not owned this long and have not yet even found a mechanic. Any help appreciated.

Check the computer for codes. Either all of this is coincidence or you have a larger common electrical problem.

Thanks for your input.
I am sure I have a larger electrical problem.
Whast would you say is the best way to go about diagnosing it?
#671 of 812 I would first have it checked for codes

The VSS not working long enough should at least trip one code not to mention with all the other problems you are having there is likely to be some other stuff going on. As for tracing electrical issues....find a mechanice who specializes in this or is good at it. Or even one who is just willing. Most mechanics (at least from my experience) despise looking for electrical problems since they can occur virtually anywhere in the looms all around the car.
If all that stuff went bad at once though, its safe to say something major is at fault and that should make it easier to pinpoint.
#672 of 812 Premium

Looking at buying a used 1992 Legend, and it says they requior premium fuel. Will it run on regular? with gas prices paying that much more for premium Fuel on a 14 year old car seems abit too expensive. Will the Legend run on regular or will that mess up with the engine?
