#32 of 114 Re: 1994 Honda Passport Fuel pump wiring problem? [retiredusn1]
Jul 26, 2008 (2:10 pm)
Im having that same problem now. i was wondering if you knew what those connections were called or how i can find them to purchase? the connection running down the passenger side looks good but the other connection the wire running to the back of it looks like it had been clipped a little and is showing the wire under the plastic covering. if i wiggle may may not turn on most of the time it dont. Now just stuck and frustrated and ready to set fire to the whole car itself. Can anyone help PLEASE.!!

problems solved. the wife is driving her passport again!
IT WAS THE GROUNDS. i replaced/fixed all the grounds in the engine compartment,...and....presto-fixo!
(2) grounds coming off either side of the engine, from valve cover to fender.
(1)ground from a fuse block to the fender on driver's side.
(2) going from battery to alternator and down to the passenger motor mount.
(2) connections going to the same ground on top of the intake manifold; front bolt; driver's side; out of a harness.
I REPLACED ALL OF THE SORRY CLIP STYLE CONNECTIONS. LOOP TERMINAL--WIRE--LOOP TERMINAL. NOTHING IN BETWEEN. I ALSO USED STAR WASHERS TO HELP KEEP GOOD CONTACT. AND VASELINE TO HELP SLOW CORROSION.
i just used a couple of electrical connection kits i have for general use on cars. i had to replace a couple of sections of wire that were'nt long enough after cutting the bad connections off (make sure you use the same gauge or bigger).
i think that's all. all of the WIERD STUFF went away. i still have a malfunctioning IAC(idle air control), but apparently that is a separate problem.
if i had to go under the chassis to fix wires, i'd probably solder the wires together. i'd do butt joints; press the clean exposed wires into each other like interlocking fingers, then solder. no stupid press in connections, cut them out. then tape, or use shrink tubing (don't forget to slide the shrink tube on BEFORE you solder!)
good luck gentlemen, kevin
#34 of 114 96 passport battery security alarm problem
Sep 03, 2008 (5:31 pm)
I just replaced the battery on my 96 passport and when i connected the battery terminal the alarm started to go off. I don't have the clicker and i need a way to cut off the alarm. I tried to find a fuse to pull to disable it and then connect the battery but i can't seem to find the correct one. If anyone has had this problem and knows what to do please let me now. Thanks.
#35 of 114 Question. Is this possibly a fuse problem?
Sep 24, 2008 (12:28 am)
When I went to turn my car on the brake, gas and battery light on my dashboard are lit. I have a half tank of gas, my parking break wasn't deployed and my battery is pretty new. Also my heater/ac won't work even on full blast. What could this be? Is it possibly just a fuse issue or is it shorted wires? Is there an easy way to test it if it is?
Oh, I have a '94 Honda Passport. Thanks.

I had a similar problem and it turned out to be a bad ground. Standing straight in front with the hood up look back on the Firewall in the center. there is where the ground connections was on my 94. Replace the connectors and make sure this gizzmo is tight. It cured my problem, then I promptly sold it and bought me a new CRV, which is one of the best cars I ahve owned in years. By the way my 94 passport had 265000 miles on her and I still got $2000.000 for her.

OK. I have a 1995 Honda Passport (113000 miles). About 4 months ago, I had a problem with the brake light and battery light glow dim. The fan on the A/C stopped working. I took it to an electrical specialist. They replaced the blower and the fuse box (I think). Everything worked fine. NOW the lights are coming on dim again and will go bright when I press the brake down hard. Tonight the check engine light came on but goes outs intermittently.
From what I have read on this thread, should I be looking at a voltage regulator or a bad ground wire? Any other ideas?

I have a 2000 passport also that did this. I found out this is somewhat common. The lock/window buttons are one piece, you can just unplug them and get a new one. I couldn't find any at the junkyard - they were all taken. I found the best deal at www.bkhondaparts.com. You can talk to a real person also. I can send you the part number if you need it. I plugged the new one in and everything is great. I am not a mechanic or expert so take my advice as such
#39 of 114 1997 Honda Passport Electrical Problems
Jan 16, 2009 (7:56 pm)
I have a 1997 Honda Passport which has been acting strange. The brake light and Rr. ABS light are on. Then the check engine came on. Now the battery light is on.
The battery light has been blinking on and off. This evening my honda died on me right in the middle of the road.I had to call someone to come and jump me off. I had only drove it just a little piece and it died again. I finally made it home but just barely before it died again. I plugged my Actron code reader in and the code was P0153. Does anyone know what this code is? And could anyone tell me what I need to do to fix this problem?

How old is your battery? I experienced similar types of problems with my '96 Passport until I replaced the battery.
#41 of 114 Reduce power light / rough Idle
May 27, 2009 (8:34 am)
We have a 2001 Honda Passport 4Dr 4WD with 6cyl MPFI that has started shutting off randomly. sometimes when you hit a stopped bump, Sometimes when you brake hard, most of the time when Idling the reduce power light will come on and the throttle is non responsive. we shut it down (if Still running) and re-start It Idles roughly and will stall again. have to re-start 2 or 3 times before will finally run for a while. It has recently been to the shop ( not a dealer) for transmission repair. I am wondering if the shop failed to reconnect the ground wires from the engine to the fenders and fire wall? could that cause the problems I described?
