Honda Accord Coupe Electrical problems



  • I am having the same probleme with my 2004 Honda Accord v6. Have you found a solution to that?
  • Did you ever figure it out? My '03 Accord just did the same thing.....all the bulbs are good, just the left side is dead.

    Yes, but I had to take it to the Honda dealer to find out. It was a faulty fuse box and relay assembly. The mechanic performed a test on the system with HDS (whatever that is) to determine it was not working. Since they are all one unit the entire thing had to be replaced. My Honda dealer charged me $357.67. (The actual parts were $196.60 and labor was $158.00. There was a miscellaneous charge of $15 and tax was $22.62. They gave me some sort of discount which amounted to $34.55).

    Now, I'm noticing an occasional light "typing" sound that seems to be coming from my steering column that started about two weeks after I had the above repair completed. Have you noticed anything like that on your Honda?
  • I have a 2004 Accord EX with onboard 6 CD changer stereo that has stopped working completely. In the beginning, it sounded like Cd/Cd's got stuck inside, so I tried to eject the discs but couldn't. At the time it displayed "ERR" which, according to the manual, means a mechanical error. Now when I press the power button, all I get is the radio. I've no access to the Cd player anymore, although I hear some clicking sounds from the CD player.

    I would like to know what options do I have.

    third brake light works but those in the left and right lens assemblies do not. Fuze is good and new bulbs have been installed. No lights, however. Also on the brake light indicator on the instrument panel, the light indicates that the brake lights are working (goes out after initial check at startup). Thanks!

    I am having the same problem.
    I tried replacing the master door switch which the dealer said was defective (power into switch, NO power out) but that did NOT solve the problem of the locks not responding either via the key remote NOR from switch on drivers side or passenger side switch.
    Remote DOES operate the trunk lock OK.
    Anybody else? Any fixes?
  • My 02 Accord SE Coupe has a headlight problem. In the past year, I have been through multiple bulbs on both sides. Now, the right side is out again. After replacing the bulb, nothing happened. Digging a little further, the fuses are good and switching the relays didn't help. Any ideas? Could this be a ground problem? If so, where should I look?
  • Yesterday, I took the car to the dealer and they replaced the bulb. They said the Sylvania bulbs I had in the car were no good. I'm not buying this too much, because I checked the bulb and got it to work. For now, it is working.............

    i have replaced the bulbs and stop switch, checked all fuses, still only the middle/top brake light works...the 2 rear will not.

    any ideas?
  • Has anyone else had a problem with headlights automatically changing from daytime running lights brightness to low to high all while on the "low" beam setting...all in a matter of 2 minutes? I'm having this difficulty. We have a 2004 Accord and it is really bad driving at night. Drivers are constantly flashing us thinking we are doing it on purpose, but we are not. Any ideas? The dealership doesn't know...they suggest the module but can't be sure. HELP?! Thanks.

    I have the exact same problem. Took it to the dealer who stated there is a circuit board which would require replacing to the tune of >$300. Now I'm just trying to find where this alleged circuit panel is and where to find a replacement or fix it. Let me know if you have since solved the problem.
  • Hey i also am having the exact same problem on the same car as you are describing if you ever get a solution or reply back about this could you please forward it to me at thanks.
  • Did you ever get to the bottom of this? I have the same problem and have replaced bulb, fuse, and still only top middle brake light works.

    Did you ever resolve the issue with the 98 Accord when the engine would die while you were driving. I bought a used 98 Accord last October that now has 73,000 miles and it has starting having the same issue. Engine will die but will start right up-just concerned with it not starting up at some point. Thanks for your response.
  • ok.. i have read a couple of the forums. and i have done all they say do. and nothing works. i have checked all the voltage. 12 volts supply is fine. changed fuses. changed brake switch. nothing works. my 3rd brake light works. my left an right light does not? has anyone figured this out?? info would be much appreciated! my son will be born any day now and i dont want him riding in my car if my brake lights do not work. need fix asap!
  • have you figured this problem out yet??
  • Try the main relay. I had a bad stalling problem and my mechanic and a honda parts guy said main relay right away. I guess its an issue with aging hondas.
  • You can pry the panel up with your fingers from the fron of the panel to get to the back and access to the switch. Once you have access to them you will see that the lights will insert into the side of the switch. The 2 for the hi and lo are the same and the one for the icon is different. You can pick up the bulbs from any auto parts store, just ask for them.
