I have a 1996 Honda passport and have noticed that the alternator and or battery is the suspected electrical problems in most Honda Passports and you should loosen the alternator; then make sure the electrical plug is properly and tightly plunged into the alternator.
If this doesn't help go to auto zone and they will check your alternator for free.
\You may notice the radio cutting off intermittently and many other strange things happening to your Honda passport or Isuzu Rodeo. I hope this helps.

As I have stated in nearly every instance like this...Not to knock Advance Auto and/or Auto Zone...but unless either one can give you an original new factory alternator, you will continue to have these problems. Whatever reason in the reman's the voltage regulators are no good. The blower for the fan is grounded to the engine control module via the voltage regulator. And if the voltage regulator is bad... well there you have it. A reman alternator will test great at about 15 on the bench, however if you test the same alternator while it is in the vehicle, it will show as bad!
#20 of 114 AUDIO PROBLEMS??? INSIGHT PLEASE!!!
Apr 25, 2008 (10:00 pm)
Ok so my 95 Honda passport runs great, just 2problems! 1. When driving for moderately long distances (c30 miles) or so the check engine light comes on, it's not steady though it shuts off if i am not accelerating however every time i accelerate above approximately 10MPH the check engine light returns and usually stays on until i take my foot off the gas for after about 5 seconds....any ideas? 2nd concerning my radio (original stock) only the passenger side front speaker plays audio constantly and the other speakers seem to respond with clips of intermittent audio when traveling over hard bumps or the volume is turned up loud and even then speakers only respond intermittently? And suggestions?
Any insight is greatly appreciated, thanks NUR
#21 of 114 Strange Electrical Problem
Apr 26, 2008 (7:52 am)
I have a 94 Passport. This all started after having new tires put on front. The Rear Anti Lock Light came on as did the brake and check engine lights. Temp guage went full hot, Radio quit, Blinkers Quit. Thought I had thrown a belt, got out checked under hood all OK shut the hood got back in and all lights were normal heat guage came back to normal and ran fine. The next day it happened again and again went away. I did find one ground connection bad as well as the positive terminal connector on the battery. changed both, Problem solved, until I started home from work, and it all happened again. It kept it up all the way home off and on.
Who knows what this could be?

Turned out to be a faulty ground located on the Firewall directly behind the engine. Connections were Red Hot and melting down the plastic. Took the factory clip thing off put connectors on the wires and attached directly to the firewall. All problems solved. Runs like a dream once again.
#24 of 114 Electrical Issues 1995 Passport
May 06, 2008 (8:20 am)
I have a 1995 Passport with 102K on it and the other night I was turning on my headlights and the wipers started going. I messed with it a while and figured to pull out the dash light fuse and everything was ok except I had no dash lights and if I used my wipers the dash lights would come on as if the wiper motor was generating power to the lights. I replaced the fuse and everything seemed to be ok again until last night. It did it again, but this time the spray nozzles went off as well. I think the problem may lie in a short in the dash illumination wire that goes to the wiper switch. Does anyone have a suggestion of what to do?

#27 of 114 Re: 1996 Passport intermittent throttle, idle, tranny,...]

hey fellow sufferers. i want to like my 96 passport, but i just can't go on with this issue.
sounds like hondas & rodeos had issues with their grounds, and maybe some other connections. though i'm a mechanic, i hate chasing electrical problems up and around body panels or drivetrain. nightmare.
my car, which i haven't seen one like it here, loses a ground belonging to the THROTTLE POSITION SENSOR(wants to die and lope at anything less than 1000rpm), the IDLE AIR CONTROL SOLENOID(before i blocked it off, it would idle way too high,...1500-2500), and occasionally the TRANSMISSION ACCUMULATOR (thumps into 2nd gear).
my problems are specific to outside temperature. around 20-40 degrees F, as soon as the car warms up and takes sensor readings, it all goes screwy.
if i continue to drive awhile, it stops if ambient temperature is near the 40 deg range or higher. if it's colder, the problem goes on and on, even after sitting off for a while. also, however it runs when i shut it off, that's how it runs the next time i start it.
anyone found the faulty wire that does this??? crikey.
