When I turn the key on, the check engine light and the ring around the d4 gear position come on for like 2 seconds and then they both go out at the same time. I don't know if that is normal or not. I have checked all the fuses under the hood and under the dash. I have not found any bad fuses. I checked the fusible links in the under the hood fuse box. The engine will not turn over. Battery is fully charged. When the engine stopped turning over, I also lost my power door locks and the security light by the radio quit blinking and now does not work either. I think they may all be tied together but I don't know what to check.

I believe the check engine and D4 light are functioning normal.
I don't think you have power to the fuse circuits.
Check for power coming to the main under dash fuse panel. there is probably a 50 amp fuse there.
What documentation do you have?
#1620 of 1859 1994 Honda Accord emission test plug
Jul 13, 2010 (12:10 pm)
My son just returned from the Illinois Air Team emission test facility with our 1994 Honda Accord. They said they could not test the vehicle because they could not plug in their sensor and that the sensor plug has to be 'remounted'. Should the plug be located behind the ashtray?

The1994 Honda accord is not OBD-2 compliant.
OBD-2 did not start till 1996 so there is no connector behind the ashtray on the 94, only 96 and later.
I don't believe Air Team emission test facility know exactly what they are doing.
I believe they are going to have to do the OLD TAIL PIPE CHECK.
Call your local Honda place they will tell you how/where the test is done.
The 1994 is OBD-1 which means there is no real standard across vehicles.
To read trouble codes On the 94, the sc ( service connector) is not by the foot well or behind the ashtray, it is behing the glove box,, there is a 2 wire plug and a 3 wire plug ,,I think they are either green or blue ,,, you want to jump the 2 wire plug with a paper clip , put the key on and read the fashing codes on the instrument cluster.

Had the same issue on my 98 honda accord... the light on the button will come on but the cruise control will not engage when the button on the steering wheel was pressed.... I replaced the brake light switch, it works fine now...

Where do you add the brake fluid in a 1994 Honda accord?

Ok people here was the problem. On a 97 Honda Accord SE, there is a door lock security control unit under the front passenger seat. If your door locks and security system both go out, I would check this module. From what I could gather, this module would only fit 97 Accord SE's. So it was a little hard finding one at a salvage yard. So to sum this whole deal up......if you drive into some water and it gets the inside floor board/ carpet wet, check the ECM and the door lock/ security control module. They are both located on or at the front passenger floor board. Peace out and Praise Jesus that I figured this mess out!!!
#1626 of 1859 95 accord lx manual- warped rotors
Aug 03, 2010 (8:26 am)
I have a 95 accord with a warped front passenger side. I tried to take the rotor out myself, but it was stuck. I've worked on accords before and this one seemed to be snugged in. Is there a certain way or any advice on how i would be able to take out the warped rotor? Any advice would help greatly. Thanks
