Thanks for getting back, but the issue was already taken care of. It turned out to be the alternator. The car died on the way home from my vacation. Thank God it happened right in front of a car garage. The garage was closed but the owner was working on his own car and was nice enough to help me and my family out. He was a great guy! After he change it out the car ran great and the air conditioning worked again. Thanks again for getting back to me.
#77 of 114 honda passport electical/heater fan problem
Sep 23, 2010 (5:07 pm)
My 2000 passport has an electical problem of lights randomly working. Now the heater/ac fan won't work and I think it may be connected? Anyone know how to make the fan start working again? The heat/ac works fine.

Same problem with my 2002 passport. It was a short in the wire harness behind the dashboard. Had to take the dash off. Two bolts from the stearing column had rubbed through the wire harness.

My 2002 Passport did the same thing. For me it was the bottom quick connect on the passenger side (right foot) behind the kick plate. The large white wire is the power in. It runs over to the fuse panel, but their is a splice behind the heater/radio in the main wire harness.

I had the same issue with my 96 Passport: the battery, brake, and 4WD lights came on and then a bit later the heater quit working. The problem is in the electrical system - either the battery, the battery cable, or the alternator.
The easiest way to see if your battery is OK is to take your car to a reputable car parts store - they've got the equipment to check the health of the battery.
Once you've verified or replaced the battery, check out the alternator by removing the battery cable while the engine is running. The alternator should have plenty of power to run the car, the lights, and the heater. If it dies right away, then you need to replace or repair the alternator.
The alternator is fairly straightforward to remove - there is one bolt at the top and a bolt/tensioning screw assembly at the bottom. Remove the battery first so that you have more room. Loosen the lower bolt and then backout the tensioning screw to relieve the tension on the belt. Then remove the two bolts. The alternater should slide out with a bit of coaxing. Remove the connector and ground strap then pull the alternator out. Replace with new alternator in the reverse order as above. Note that the bolts are metrice, so use the appropriate wrenches.
#82 of 114 2000 Passport stalling out
Mar 28, 2011 (12:10 pm)
I recently bought a used 2000 Passport with an unusual problem. It drives very good most of the time, on problem days it starts by idling high, stopping becomes harder, I have to hit the brake harder for it to stop, the vehicle makes 3 attempts to lurch forward from a stopped position with the transmission in drive and my foot hard on the brake pedal then the engine dies, the Brake, Engine and Transmission lights comes on while this is happening. I put it in park and restart, all the lights go out except the Engine light which stays on for about 15 minutes then goes out. Putting the transmission in drive causes the vehicle to jerk a couple of times before it drives OK. When I stop again the process repeat its self. Its difficult driving in heavy traffic, the engine would stall a lot. Funny thing is I took it to Auto Zone and no code showing up when they checked. I bought it used from a Honda dealer who now tells me they don`t have the special tools required to service it and that I should take it to Isuzu, Isuzu tells me that it is probably the Computer and they can`t service it.
I am now between a rock and a hard place, how can I resolve this? Any ideas?

i bought a 95 honda passport 5 speed and would have probs with it when it would rain,carwash etc. I knew i had something getting wet but i had no clue what.Engine light would come on couldnt hold it at certain speeds and cruise and back up light s wouldnt work.I almost gave up on it until one day i was changing the oil and noticed the wiring was pinched in the steering knuckle.I opened the casing surrounding the wires and seen they were some if not all damaged and severd off i fixed the wires and everyting worked great.I just wanted passport owners to be aware of this as it might be a reoccurring prob

Hi. I was wondering if you ever figured out the "check engine" light problem? I have a 1994 Passport and it just started doing the same thing about 2 months ago and I don't know where to start checking for the problem. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks, Bill
