I have somewhat the same problem you do. I have a 98 passport and at night when I push on the brakes the headlights and the dash lights dim almost completely out. It also does this when I us the electric windows, rear defrost, and when I turn on the heater. Also when I put the car in first gear and start driving my cd player turns off for a second and turns back on. It also does this when the anti-lock brakes activate. Its got a new battery and alternator. If anyone knows what I could do to fix it let me know THANKS

I have an 87 HOnda that starting losing the headlights, etc when then brake applied or turn signals used. Turned out to be a loose connector in the mess of wire harnesses that are around the steering column. Suggest you check all connectors you can reach. If the contact is not solid, the extra current can draw down the circuit
#5 of 114 Backup Light Switch

The backup lights come on when I shift into 3rd gear on my 1994 Honda Passport, are there any adjustments for this, the info in the manual is meager at best. I have disconnected the switch but would like the lights to come on when I'm in reverse.

Passport all of a sudden just quits. Would not start back. Left sitting over night and then it cranked right up. Any idea what the problem might be?

The bag and several pieces of clothes had melted into the carpet. when I lifted the carpet I found were the carpet and padding had burn up through to the clothes. Has anyone had this problem????
#8 of 114 electrical problem dashboard and taillights are out
Jun 23, 2007 (8:28 pm)
I have this 1995 Rodeo that for the most part has been running well except lately I am having this intermittent problem of the dashboard lights and taillights not working. The brake lights work, the turn signals work, and the headlights as well as the high beams headlights work just fine. Its only the taillights and the dashboard lights that intermittently do not work. Anybody have the same problem and any idea what it may be?
#9 of 114 99 pasport with starting issues
Jul 04, 2007 (11:10 am)
I have had the intake valves replace because they were cracked, new spark plugs because they were still the original ones, and had it hooked up to a machine at the shop that is used to clean out all the gunk that may be lurking about. I bought this car from a one owner who never drove it. It is a 99 with 58000 miles on it. When I first got it everything seemed fine. After a few weeks I noticed that it was not starting right up, sometimes it would take two or three tries. On one occasion after I turned it off I smelled gas. Took it in to the honda shop, they hooked it up to a computer. We found that the intake valve or it's casing had a crak, bare with me, I'm not good at shop talk.
So we replaced this thinking it was the problem. Still had issues, so we replaced the spark plugs, seemed alittle better but a few days later it would just click when I turned it over, after a few tries it would start. Back to the shop, needed new starter. Thought it was fixed, wrong, it turns right over but again sometimes it will take afew tried sometimes it will start right up. I find that if it does start right up I need to gas it right away or it will shut down. Had it hooked up to something that blows out all the crap gunking up. Still having the same issues. The guy told me that the computer is showing nothing. We are not sure what to do next. Any suggestions? I'm ready to give up!
#10 of 114 elec..Cruise, Speedo, & Odometer pblm.
Jan 09, 2008 (10:34 am)
1997 Passport, 164250 on odometer...driving at 65 w/ cruise ON, when cruise cuts off, speedometer begins to bounce between 65 and 0 mph, and the odometer is only registering a fraction of the actual mileage. Anyone know whether this is a mechanical or electrical type pblm or a solution to pblm. Also, I've had a strange elec. pblm. where my stereo would uncontrollably turn on and off with bumps in the road and then the next time you start the car, no pblm. to be seen. Any help there??

1995 Honda Passport, V 6, 1150,000 miles.
Sometimes radio goes on and off intermittently, rear defrost don't work.
(Today installed new battery, then tonight it went from 13.8 volts charging to 10 volts charging + the battery light and brake light came on, the AC/ Heater fan blower motor stopped working all at the same time.)
What do you think?
