#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?

Hello, our passport's driver side power windows suddenly stopped working. The passenger side windows both work (for now?) Any ideas would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

My mechanics are stumped and said they cant help me. For some reason my passport picks different times not to crank. There is no pattern and if the car sits overnite it will crank. I have had the car to the mechanic several times and it never fails it crank..Tonite we went out to eat(about 45 minutes) and it wouldnt crank..I called AAA with a wait of an hour. After 30 minutes I tried to crank and it did...If I get someone to jump it off it will crank...This is really frustrating...

You wrote: down next to your left foot is a panel. 1 screw and then pull it of. the problem is the relay in the center. there is 3 relays the dash tailights and liciense plate light relay is the center relay.
Thanks ever so much for this answer. You have saved my Isuzu Rodeo. When the taillights stopped working, along with the dash lights, I took it to the Dealer. They informed me that the only thing it could be, was theHeadlight Switch on the left side of the steering wheel. Est. Cost to fix, $1,200.
Since your post, I have ordered another relay for $34.00 and have installed it. Everything works fine now. Never knew that there were relays under that panel.
#46 of 114 2002 Honda Passport electrical problems

I have a 2002 Passport with a new battery, battery connections and starter but It still won't crank over. It has power to the headlights and dash and horn but not to the windows door locks or fan blower. I don't see any of the fuses that are blown. Would appreciate any input.

I have a '98 LX Honda Passport that is 4dr 4 wheel drive. My car has been having some strange electrial problems. For a while when I used the turn signals it would blow out a fuse and when the car shifted into 3rd gear it would make a hard clunking noise & it sounded like the transmission was going to fall out. When I changed the fuse then everything worked fine. To avoid having the problem I just stopped using my turn signals. I recently had to have the car inspected and for some reason when they did the turn signals everything worked fine. Since it didn't blow out the fuse I used my turn signals all weekend. Then all of the sudden the power outlet didn't work. Then today the radio, clock and the dome light aren't working. When I checked the fuses the dome light fuse was lit up - even after the car was turned off. When I went to replace it the fuse blew again and still stayed lit up and it didn't fix any of my problems. Does anyone have any suggestions?
#49 of 114 95 honda passport.. serious electrical problem!!
Sep 09, 2009 (6:23 am)
For starters, when we bought this vehicle used, all that was wrong was the timing belt had slipped. by the time we got the tools and parts to change the timing belt, the battery had went dead, so i had the battery de-sulfated, and made brand new again. after the battery was installed again, we noticed that somehow from time the vehicle sat, it developed a major short that was blowing the Main 100 AMP fuse. we went ahead and installed the new timing belt, but still have yet to find what is causing my short.
when the alternator is disconnected, the short dissapears, but i do realize that this could possibly be because the alternator being disconnected causes the circuit to close to the rest of the componets. i had the alternator checked at autozone, and it tested good. tested at orielys, failed. so i bought a brand new alternator, hooked it up, and i still have the same problem. ive taken off all the covering on the wire going from the alternator all the way to the harness behind the main fuse box, and there arent any shorts or cuts in the wires, we've had the starter checked at autozone, it tested good, the wires that connect to the starter dont seem to be damaged, and ive also taken off every fuse in the main fuse box, then tried bypassing the main 100 amp with a 4 gauge wire while the alternator was connected, but there was still a short!! somebody please help me

I have a 2002 Honda Passport that will not start. I have put 2 batteries, an alternator and starter and had the grounds checked. The darn thing keeps draining the battery and will not turn over. I am a lost for what to too with it next. I use this car to go back and forth to work and to transport my elderly mom to her doctor’s appointments. Wish I had the money to purchase something else but I don't. Please help
