Please reduce the size of your pictures before posting them. It's made this thread impossible to read. I'm not even going to try.

i made the pic smaller

Response From Hammer Time

Very good, thank you. Now i can read it.

Manually wiring this thing is not going to be an option for you. There are multiple circuits and they are complex. You are going to have to get your hands on a working switch somehow.

Response From Hammer Time

You need to forget about the "hot wiring" idea. It really can't be done.Turn signals share the same circuit with brake lights and the switch cancels one to use the other so that's nothing you could wire up.

Response From otta

i had a bad solder joint so i re-soldered and it fixed the problem i was facing :)

Response From Hammer Time

That was a good find.
Closing this question now as solved to keep the spammers out.

Thanks but mine looks different from this

Response From Discretesignals

Can you take a pic of your combo switch and post it in here?

Response From Tom Greenleaf

Unless I'm missing something you need this switch and have a pic suggests the part is out. Take it to a place or match it up AYOR with some web only parts place of your choice for a lower price.


Honda had what you wanted but you don't or can't pay that. I just showed one of two found in seconds for much less but not free.


You want to somehow hotwire this - fine it's a 30 year old Honda so go hack it totally with a toggle switch if you want with generic stuff for lawn and garden equipment still AYOR but fuse it.


A good hack job will still cost you most of the correct part and probably will have some other issue for hacking it up. What do you want to do, have a car or not over headlights which you must have of course?

Why not dump the pic

Oil on spark plugs on 1990 Honda Accord EX

Question From kprossman on Oil on spark plugs on 1990 Honda Accord EX

I have a 1990 Honda Accord EX (fuel injected) 5speed and I have oil on my plugs.
What causes that or is that normal for Honda Accords that have electronic fuel injection?

Response From Tom Greenleaf

It should have nothing to do with fuel injection or not.

Where is the oil? On the boots or at the firing electrodes of the plugs? It matters as that would be two different issues, T

Response From kprossman Top Rated Answer

In answer to your question about my '90 Honda Accord most of the oil is in the sparkplug boots but there is also some on the electrodes thereselves?
Thanks for any help you can give me...

Response From steve01832

The oil on the boots is probably a worn or loose valve cover gasket. You should check for spark and fuel pressure first. Also, make sure the valve timing is correct. A simple compression test will confirm that.

honda help!!!!

Question From ghosthearts09 on honda help!!!!

i wrecked my 1996 honda accord ex v6 about a month and a half ago. The motor is in good condition with only 143000 miles on it. I have found a 1994 honda prelude with out an engine in it. Is it at all possible to put the engine from my honda accord into the honda prelude? If so how much trouble would it be??

P.S. i know that normally when an engine swap happens between an accord and a prelude its the other way around where u put the prelude engine into the accord.

thanks for the help

Response From Tom Greenleaf

First - not worth it. You will need VIN#s from each vehicle to see what can or can't swap. Probably not much. They are different models and different years. Do yourself a favor and just buy a whole car and work from there,

Response From h23darklude

puting a v6 into a prelude requires a master.iv seen it done but even by sumone who new wat they were doing it took awhile.sell the v6 and find a nice lil H22 to drop in there.very nice powerplant for the buck.

Im new to this site.tryna figure things out.I'm sorry for posting sumthin that has nothing to do with u and ur cat picture.nuff?nuff?wen u find the spell check let me kno.thank you for the very friendly help tom.

Response From Tom Greenleaf

You are registered so should have full view of site and it's areas. Like anything new it takes some getting used to. Look for dates of posts if it matters for a question or suggestion you may have. Look for where it says you can make your own new post.

IMO - this site is easier to navigate than most. Take a look around forums and you'll get the feel of it.

Need location blower motor transistor 03 Honda

Showing 5 out of 12 Posts | Show 7 Hidden Posts
Question From comnavguy on Need location blower motor transistor 03 Honda

Can someone tell me where the blower motor power transistor is on a 2003 Honda Accord A/C system?

The Honda part number on an identical car just one year ago: 79330-SDA-A01 7148307-79999.

Response From Tom Greenleaf

If having a problem with blower motor speed it's a "resistor" in general and very close to the blower,

T

Response From Discretesignals

Actually on this one it is called a power transistor. Instead of using resistors to drop voltage to slow the blower down, this one uses a pulse width modulated transistor to control an infinite number of blower speeds.

It's located in the chamber box. You have to remove the ac and radio control panel to get to it.

Response From comnavguy

Thanks again for the answer. Now can you tell me the steps to remove the AC and radio panel to get to this transistor?

Response From Hammer Time

Response From comnavguy

OH MY GOODNESS! A write-up and a schematic. Perfect.

O'Reilly had the part (and I was right about the size/design) for $60. Removed - thanks to you and this forum - and plugged in the new one.

ICY WINDS in this Accord and an elated neighbor who saved lots of money.

Response From Hammer Time

Glad to hear you got it fixed.

Response From Tom Greenleaf Top Rated Answer


Way to go Hammer. Direct hit,

T

Response From comnavguy

LIFE SAVER. And thank you.

I had been told by the lady who had the job done last year that she THOUGHT it was behind the glove box.

Mr.& Mrs. Honda are real proud of this transistor. $84 worth. I'm guessing it's in a special package or has a heatsink/mount tooled just for Honda.

Thank you again and again.

Response From Hammer Time

$84 doesn't buy much these days.

Question From Guest on honda van

hi i have a 2003 honda van last week when my wife was going 50 mph the front end locked up the van slid 150 feet the honda service told us the trans is gone has anyone ever herd of anything like this and is the trans

Response From Hammer Time

Total lockup like that isn't real common but it's certainly possible on most any vehicle.

Response From Guest Top Rated Answer

could it be something beside the trans

Response From Hammer Time

Sure, it could be the something jamming brakes but most any shop couldn't miss that. The damage would be quite visible.
