#61 of 410 Keyless entry 1997 Civic LX
Jul 17, 2007 (2:49 pm)
How much should it cost to get a keyless entry system put on my 1997 honda civic LX? I forget way too often to manually lock the driver's side door (the power lock won't work so that i don't lock my keys in the car). I also read that ALL 97 LX's have the receiver built into the radio and that as long as the car has power locks, I can simply buy a honda keyless entry fob and program it without having to install anything (or needing to pay someone else to do it) - is this true?

we've had aftermarket keyless entries / alarms installed for about $200 on non-civics in the past.

Thanks for the pricing info, but does anyone know if it's true that all 97 Civic LX's have the receiver built into them and only require honda keyless remotes for programming?
#64 of 410 Water Leaks In '95 Heater Unit
Jul 20, 2007 (4:43 am)
'95 DX Coupe: In heavy rain downpours I get water leaking from the bottom of the heater fan housing. Checked the drain for the A/C unit and it is not blocked. I suspect there is some drain hole in the firewall that is plugged, but I have no idea where to check. Any help appreciated.
#65 of 410 HELP PLEASE!! 1996 Civic DX Engine shutter/cut out?
Jul 30, 2007 (5:54 am)
my 1996 civic dx is acting up and I don't know what's wrong. I will be driving along and then out of the blue, it's like the the engine cuts out or shutters for a second and then kicks back in again. It will also cut out and on quickly almost seeming like the engine is jumping. (giving a good occasional quick jolt while driving) does this make sense or sound familiar to anyone. (it sometimes cuts out to the point where even though the gas pedal is pushed down, there is no power and it just decelerates or shuts down until the car shuts off, and then after waiting a few minutes, you can start it up and drive it a little further before it happens again???) Otherwise, when it cuts out at about 100km/hr, it will kick back in again about 8 seconds later and seem fine....I tried some injector cleaner but it didn't help. The plugs, distributor cap, fuel filter, catylic converter, exhaust manifold and alternator have all been changed and nothing seems to work....please help as I am really not good with this stuff.
#66 of 410 1997 Civic LX Maintenance
Aug 18, 2007 (1:45 pm)
Not sure if this goes here or not but I just have to say I love Honda. I have had my civic since new and it now has 102000 miles on it. The other day my wife was driving home and it was having problems going over 60 mph so I said just take it to the dealer and I will meet you there. The next day the maintenance department calls and says it will be 791.00 to fix my cat and manifold. I said fix it because we had the car in last spring and was going to have some work done around 800.00 and it was all covered under extended warranty so I figured what the heck. Well today the service department called me and said all the parts where covered under a different extended warranty again. This has saved me around 1600.00 and all I have done is routine maintenance on the car for 10 years. What other company does this! Thank you so much HONDA I will be a customer for life.
P.S. we also have a 2007 Ody
#67 of 410 Honda Civic 1993 Repairs
Aug 21, 2007 (2:37 pm)
My 1993 honda civic window stops at about one inch from the top. I think it will need a window lift motor. Anyone know how to remove and renew this motor? I also have a problem with it not starting all the time. I installed new plugs and wires with a new fuel filter, but this didn't help. Also had a fuel pump installed, still no help. Someone told me that if could be the pressure regulator valve. When I turn on the key and let it pump it will start. However sometimes when I turn on the key the pump doesn't pump and the check engine light does not go off.

For your no-start it sounds as if it could be an intermittent fuel pump relay problem.

this sounds like fuel pump, either the pump is failing or the wiring to the pump is failing, causing it to just stop momentarily. I think the pump is located under the rear seat, lift up the seat cushion and see if the wiring looks ok. It may be just a bad connection, 1st try unplugging it and plugging it back in. If that's not it, have the pump tested.
#70 of 410 2001 civic - problems with gauges
Aug 29, 2007 (6:23 pm)
My 2001 civic lx with auto trans -88000 miles.
I recently changed the power steering pump and since then I have the following problems:
on starting the odometer reads 888888, the tachometer drops to 0, the gear shift indicator blinks, fuel gauge becomes inacurate. The car runs normally except that the tachometer bounces from 0 to normal. Any sugestions of what is happening?
