#2233 of 2261 bulb repalcement
Aug 04, 2012 (5:51 am)
02 sedan automatic with 135K. The bulb on the floor shift blew. No big deal, but is there an easy way to replace. I looked on-line and saw some directions but they were not right on for this model/yr.
#2234 of 2261 2001 odometer scrambling
Aug 07, 2012 (7:07 am)
I've got a 2001 EX-L V6 that I'm about to try to sell. It has 81,000 miles on it. For about the last two years, the odometer often doesn't display the mileage in a readable form -- some of the lines on the readout don't show up, so you can't see the mileage. The miles change properly, it's just impossible to read them on the odometer at times. It doesn't bother me that much, and the problem is intermittant. Unfortunately, the dealer when doing scheduled maintenance one time recorded the mileage in the 90,000 mile range, even though it was really in the 70,000 mile range at the time, and it was reported to Carfax, so now it looks like there's a mileage inconsistency (even though the car really does have only 81,000 miles.)
Three questions -- any idea how I can fix the odometer display so that it always shows the miles driven? How much is it likely to cost? Can I fix it without making it look like I've played with the odometer?

Ok thats fine, I'm guessing that also explains why the a/c blows normal air no matter what the speed when the light won't work. Is the compressor working even though a/c isn't then? I get the feeling it's an electrical problem with getting the air cold. Because everything else about the a/c system works great. I've also noticed that the mileage number tends to short out so only the bottom half of the numbers on the odometer show from time to time. Is the problem related?
Thanks for the help.

yeah even if you have automatic climate control (that is, just dial a number), the AC light has to be on for the AC compressor to be presumed to be working. If you observe the AC clutch on the front of the compressor, you'll see that the front half spins with the belt, but the back half won't turn unless it gets an electrical signal from your controls.
#2237 of 2261 Floor Mats For 2001 Accord

Anyone know the best (and cheapest) place to buy replacement carpet floor mats for a 2001 Accord? I've seen a few option online but most don't look like the original ones.

The 2001 Honda OEM floor mats at an on line Honda dealer; H and A Accessories in Citrus Heights, CA cost $64. I buoght a set for my old 2001 Accord. Those 98-2002 year mats were top quality and heavy weight mats.
The newer model Honda mats are thin and cheap and cost the same!
#2239 of 2261 2002 Honda Coupe fuse box problems
Oct 31, 2012 (1:22 pm)
So my boy had to get his car inspected but it failed due to his SRS light being on so he looked on line and read something that said he could turn it off with a paper clip. He messed up and stuck the paperclip into the SRS fuse port and im guessing it shorted the car because now nothing works. actually his headlights and his inner lights work thats it, he has to use his key to open it....Any suggestions??
Oh p.s I told him not to jump it because i did not want to cause more problems
#2240 of 2261 Honda Accord Oil
Nov 03, 2012 (6:37 am)
Is there a specific blend of oil required for a 2000 Honda Accord ( only Honda oil) or may any brand oil be used so long as the weight is proper? Thanks.

You can use any brand of oil as long as it is the correct wieght. It's best to check in the manual for the weight. I believe it calls for 5W30.
#2242 of 2261 2002 Honda Accord; had upper ball joint replaced; makes noise now
Nov 20, 2012 (12:48 pm)
Here's the story: I was getting a routine oil change. After looking at the car, guy said I needed a new upper ball joint/control arm. I got that replaced. After leaving the lot, I started hearing a noise whenever the car came to a stop. It sounded like something powering down (higher pitch to lower pitch), then the noise stops when the car is stopped.
I took the car in and they said they couldn't find the problem, and said that it might be a transmission problem. That didn't make sense to me. They couldn't find anything with a diagnostic. What is going on? Anyone have any idea what could be making this noise right after the upper ball joint/control arm is replaced in a 2002 Honda Accord 6 cylinder?
