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

The Rotors on the 95 accord are pressed on or "captured rotors". I have seen it done outside of a shop a few times, but it is a pretty painful process and the new ones generally need to be pressed on as well, usually by a hydraulic press. I have very few complaints about the accords, but the pressed on front rotors are one of them. I usually pay my local import shop about $150 to replace the rotor and bearing at the same time.

The rotor comes off from the back side.
It is a pretty big job,
The unit will need to be removed from the control arms and drive shaft,
The unit will need to come off the car
You will destroy the wheel bearing because it will separate when you push it from the housing.
Honda put the screws to us from 94 thru 97 on this job

#1629 of 1859 97 Honda Accord LX all gauges not working

1997 Honda Accord LX - 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 150000 miles
The odometer stopped work about three weeks ago, and the Check Engine light was ON. While I was thinking to change the VSS, last Friday I think I saw a kind of smoke in the front when I turned off the car at a gas station. I was not quite sure where did the smoke came from. The first thought was dust from the ground since I did not smell anything inside the car. After filled the tank, I started the car and found all meters had no signal, and the Check Engine light was OFF. There was no problem to change the gear. I drove the car home and parked it in the garage. The next day, I found the gear shift was stuck in the Parking and not able to switch to R or D. There was no power window either (I am not sure if it was gone with the gauges at the same time or with the gear shift later.)
Now, to change the gear shift from P to R or D, I have to insert a key into the Shift Release hole after the car started. The car seems running fine on the road. However, there is no any signal from Temperature Gauge, Tachometer, Speedometer, Trip Meter, Fuel Gauge. Power Window, Clock, and Reverse Light when I shift to R stopped work as well. However, AC, turn signal lights, stop lights, head lights, high lights, Radio, and Cigarette Lighter still work fine. I checked the fuse under hood and dashboard on driver side, all of them are not burnt out.
Another thing, a few years (3-4 yrs) ago, the Odometer (only) stopped running for several weeks, and then kept working till recently.
What can cause the problem? What should I check?

I found the Meter Fuse under the dash board was burnt out. However, after replace it, the new fuse was burnt out too immediately when started the car. There must be a short somewhere.
Is it possible caused by the bad VSS, since the VSS had problem before burnt the fuse?

I bought a VSS on online with $40 (Autozone cost $110). However, I have not replaced it yet. I guess this is the first step at least in my case. It seems not easy to replace since there is no much space and may need remove several other parts before reaching the VSS.
