#342 of 2104 1992 Honda Accord EX Shifting Problem
Aug 04, 2006 (7:23 pm)
My 1992 Honda Accord EX seems to be stuck in 2nd & 3rd gears. When in "P" the Dash light shows it in "P" and "D". Put in "D" it starts off in 3rd gear and stays there. Put it in 1st, it starts out in 2nd gear. Whatever Gear you put it in, the dash lights show it in "that" gear and "D".
It has to be Electrical because when your sitting still, there would be a clicking noise in the shifter between the seats. WHAT"S THE PROBLEM? I'm getting frustrated.
#343 of 2104 New Clutch is slipping!!??
Aug 08, 2006 (12:50 pm)
Ok so I just spent a load of cash on a new clutch. But now when it's very hot outside/ engine is very hot, the car slips out of gears a lot, just like before with the old clutch. It will slip in every gear significantly and it's extremely hard to get up to speed. I brought the car back to my mechanic (who I trust and is pretty good)and he bled the clutch, which it turns out did nothing. Is the new clutch not done properly or is my transmission on it's way out?? Ideas?

Sounds like the mechanic has to eat this one.
#345 of 2104 Running light problem
Aug 09, 2006 (5:11 am)
We recently obtained a 1990 Accord w/195,000 miles. The problems is with the rear running lights. A "brake lights" red warning comes up on the instrument panel.
With the headlights on, the rear running lights don't work. With the headlights and left signal on, everything works. With the headlights and right signal on, the running lights don't work. On the running lights setting, the running lights work fine.
Any clues ? A lighting relay? Wiring?

That sounds like a ground problem of some sort...was the car ever rear ended? I would check both filiments on the rear bulbs (there are 2, one brake and one tail lamp) and the CHMSL. I would then check to see if power is going to the socket in each case using a volt meter. If there is no power there, check the upstream wiring and the switch. If there is current going to the bulb and it doesn't light, check the ground paths. Also, check for corrosion about the bulb socket and make sure the wiring isn't loose.
#347 of 2104 water in the trunk!

hello My 1990 honda is getting water in the trunk when it rains(pours...miami, FL). I sealed the back lights and I put some silicon around the rubber around the trunk . Still it gets wet inside..Should I change the rubber around?

There is a drain line (I think it starts above the rear window) that gets clogged and then leaks into the trunk. IIRC the dealer did repaired it and it wasn't very expensive.

I'd be more apt to swap out the headlight switch/directional assembly --that should be a one piece unit on a stalk off the steering post.

Where can I get this drain line at or how do I find it? I have the same problem on my 1990.
