#1299 of 1859 Re: 1996 Honda Accord Speedometer quit working [bsims66173]
Sep 02, 2008 (3:57 pm)
OK, Have an update. Drove car this evening just to make sure cruise did not work. When I started down the driveway, speedo was working. Drove the car about 20 miles and all was fine and cruise worked. Got back home, turned the car off. A couple of hours later decided to drive it again, this time speedo did not work. Started up the road and speedo started jumping from 0 to driving speed several times and finally stopped all together. When it was would drop to zero, cruise would cut off somtimes and sometimes it would remain engaged. After I got home, while backing car up to park, speedo would go up to about 20 mph while in reverse and sitting still. If I go to drive, speedo goes to 0. Back in reverse, up to 20. If I put in reverse, back to 20, press the cruise button(On/Off), speedo goes to 0. Not sure what is going on now? Any ideas from the pros?
#1300 of 1859 1994 AccordEX radio code
Sep 15, 2008 (4:48 am)
Hi. I changed the battery...the radio reads "Code." I have the original dealer cards (hurray!!) with the code and serial number. But when I enter the 5-digit code using the preset buttons, the radio does'nt seem to pay attention...just sits there reading "Code." How do I wake up the system ...it doesn't seem fair...I have the code!. Thanks

Did you make a mistake and enter it more than once? I know that if you do, you have to wait some time (can't remember how long) before you enter it again. The owner's manual or the back of the card should give you instructions.

See if this helps>
If the incorrect code was tried to many times you will need to do a reset. ( Disconnect the negative terminal for approximately 2 minutes)
Enter corresponding code number corresponding reset button.

#1304 of 1859 Steps to Replace Radiator

Does anyone have a step-by-step procedure, or pictures, on how to replace the radiator in my 1995 Honda Accord?

I don't have a step by step, but it's not hard to change a radiator. Drain the radiator, disconnect the fan motor wires (plugs), disconnect hoses, remove the reserve tank, remove the radiator with the fans attached (easier to change the fans over while the radiator is out of the car), remove the fans from the old radiator, put the fans on the new radiator, then put the radiator in, reconnect hoses and wires for the fans. When refilling the radiator be sure to loosen the bleed bolt (should be under the thermostat), fill until coolant comes out of the bleed bolt, then tighten the bolt. Remove the radiator cap turn the heat all the way up, run the engine up to operating temperature, fill radiator, and reserve tank.

Go to this site and download the 94 manual it will give you all the info you need.
94 thru 97 are almost the same.
#1307 of 1859 Stuck in Park Position.
Oct 23, 2008 (1:41 pm)
I have a 1995 Honda accord ex and when it is cold outside and the car is not really warm it gets stuck in park for a few minutes.
I know it is not the brake release. It has nothing to do with the key.
What I notice is that in the dash there is no gear position. None of the lights are lighted. I can hold in the shifter button and move it in and out of park but the light does not come on so I can not get the key out of the ignition.
Is there some type of gear position sensor?
#1308 of 1859 97 Accord with 260K "uses" oil on long highway drives
Nov 08, 2008 (2:08 pm)
I have noticed that my Accord has been using oil on long freeway
drives (400 miles +)
I seem to be low 1/2-1quart after a long freeway drive.
I may also be losing oil on normal driving (but its probably less).
I don't see any leaks when the car is parked. Not sure if its being
burned or whats happening to it.
Has anyone else experienced this on their Honda engine?
Do those oil treatments help? Which ones would you recommend
