I went to a mechanic. And he is telling he has to order a computer for my Honda. He checked everything even took out the Alternator still didn't go off. So now I have the battery/engine light on. But there is nothing wrong with my battery/engine. Any suggestion s.
If I could get the dashboard apart I would paint the LED black or bypass the LED ('bulb' for some) with a 100k 1/4 watt resistor. Or remove the LED and put a non light emitting diode in it's place. The computer doesn't know if the LED/bulb is working or not.
A litle friendly advice,, if you are buying a used car, put the key into the ignition swich, turn it to the run position ( the pos before the crank pos where it will spring back to after the vehicle has started) you will see all the idiot lights light up for a second or two, this is important, its called a bulb check, so inotherwords, if the check engine light doesnt light or the ABS, or the SRS airbag , it means that either those bulbs are burned out or, more importantly, they may have been pulled out of the cluster, (the guages in the dashboard) some irreputable used car dealers will do this in order to avoid costly repairs, this is FRAUD point blank,, and whats more, puling the check engine lamp bulb out constitutes a federal offence ,1,000 dollar fine or better because they have altered an emission control device,, fed offence ,,,,,,fyi
If its a hard code the light will return after you restart the car for second time, or drive it for about 50mile or less. Just fix the problem, that's why the light is there in the first place. This sort of thing is used a lot for sketchy people that want to sell their cars and don't want the buyer to see the light.
Hello Martin Charles Everington ,
I hope you could help me solve this issue in my lovely car
Astra J ,2012, 1.6 , both automatic and manual transmission .
recently and during driving , a yellow icon (car and spanner in it) appears on the dashboard. As soon as the icon appears, a fan starts running. After less than 10 seconds the fan stops and the icon disappears. That is all. I don't see anything wrong otherwise. Thanks a lot
just buy a obd2 scanner can fix this problem and read many other information from your car, and the tool is wireless can work with iphone ipad and android devices
ya the light is gone and with it more than likely any freeze frame data that would help a technician diagnose the problem faster saving you money. why not just spend a few bob on the wagon and prevent further harm by just resetting the light and right footing it
Iam by no means a mechanic, could this not mess up the cars computer brain thingy, i heard you needed a gizmo that plugs into the dash to reset the light.
Wish we could go back to cars that didnt have al these lights on the dash, my car constantly surprises me with different lights bells and whistles that go on and off, its like the Starship enterprise at night and the owners manual is like a Nasa training manual. Given up trying to reset the clock using a stupid one for all dial next to the gear shifter, so its always wrong and the stereo settings are beyond my understanding. Last week i was driving in the dark down a country road and the dash lit up and a symbol shaped like a Deer appeared for a few seconds then went away, I thought what the hell was that, asked my nephew he said its a radar detector warning light for wildlife. Jeez what next, will a UFO shaped light appear on my dash next, does my car have a stun gun button somewhere I dont know about.
get a place to csn it for free , then u fix the issue. then do this. any mechnic will charge you 60 _80 to reset codes. free to read them. or buy a 300 dollar obd scanner. cheap ones actually screw up you car .they erase the code and settings
