#1941 of 2254 1999 Honda Accord Heating Problems :(
Dec 12, 2009 (6:33 pm)
I have a 1999 honda accord with little heat that comes out of the vents. Plenty of air, just not very hot, luke warm at best depending on how high i set the fan speed. I have checked the control panel, that is ok, i have changed out the t-stat, i have checked the heater control unit and the tests out ok, I checked the radiator hoses while the car is running, the top one is kinda hot to the touch but the bottom radiator hose is cold. This does not seem reasonanble considering what i have checked or repaired, can any one please help me with this situation? The weather is getting very cold and it's really hard to defrost the windows

I have a 2000 Honda Accord 5-speed with about 160,000 miles. When I depress the clutch pedal in the morning, when the car first starts, I can feel a pulsating sensation. The pulsating goes away after the car warms up and has run for a while.

Yes, Hank. It is a tiny lamp that needs to be replaced. My friend/mechanic brought one over and showed me how to remove the instrument panel and replace. Easy enough to do but I don't know where he got the bulb - not listed in the car manual. Maybe check with Advanced Auto or even dealer - can't be that expensive.

You can not find these tiny bulbs at auto part stores. You need to get them from a Honda dealer.
Above is a Honda dealer website where you can buy the bulbs. It takes a while to navigate through some screens to find the items you need. They are good at answering your questions if you don't know where the look for certain items.
Review the photos and find out how many bulbs are affected by Odometer and all IP back lighting. Don't just replace one bulb, replace them all so you don't have to revisit this issue a few months down the road.
The website is good for buying OEM floormats, cabin fiter, Honda OEM wheelcovers, air filter, and any inexpensive worn looking items.

My 01 Accord the A/C panel lights go out intermittently. I lose the A/C but the fan still works. It comes back on randomly. I don't see a pattern.
#1946 of 2254 100,000 Mile Spark Plugs?
Dec 31, 2009 (9:23 am)
My 1999 V6 coupe started stalling out at various stoplights. Very unpredictable and dangerous. I took it to the mechanic who cleaned out the idle air control valve and changed out the spark plugs for about $165. The car has 80,000 miles on it.
The car no longer stalls out, and the engine seems to have about 15 percent more power to it. The mechanic didn't change out the spark plug wires or distributor cap. Is this okay?
I would say that the spark plugs really don't last 100,000 miles and it is better to change them at around 75,000 or more miles. What are other people's experience with this?

I don't think a 99 V6 would have the old type spark plug wires (electronic ignition). There is a sperate coil now, for each plug. No spark plug wires, distributor cap, or rotor to change. My original spark plugs are going on 72k miles, so I plan to change them soon (75k maybe). I already purchased the plugs, and they are not cheap. $10.00 per plug is the lowest price I've seen for the iridium-tipped long-life plugs (NGK or Denso).
#1948 of 2254 Passenger Seat of a 2002 Accord
Jan 01, 2010 (9:22 am)
The back panel (that faces the right rear passenger) of the front passenger seat has fallen off. On the panel itself, there are 2 "fingers" at the top that slide up into the seat keeping it from falling out. At the bottom are 2 holes that receive screws that come out of the seat.
The fingers are easy. They just slide up. The bottom holes and screws are the problem.
Can anyone tell me how to secure this panel properly?
Thanks and Happy New Year.

From your description, I'm not sure where your having problems, is it with locating and aligning holes for the screws?. What I use is a long ice pick shaped tool. Insert it through the plastic panel, and locate the screw hole while holding the panel back a ways so you can see the hole in the seat frame. Once located, push the panel in place, then remove the pick and install the screw.
Are the holes in the seat frame stripped?, if so, you will need to replace the existing screws with a slightly larger diameter screw.

My 2000 Accord 4 cylinder is hard to start in this cold weather. The battery checked o.k., per my mechanic; he didn't volunteer any other reasons or problems. It does start, but just struggles to do so. Thanks in advance for any ideas!
