2001 Honda Accord QuestionsRefine by vehicle
Car would not shift out of park one morning. I bypassed with the shift lock and car ran fine other than no break lights or horn. I discovered the STOP fuse (#5) was blown. I replaced the fuse and later that same day, the fuse blew again. I researched online and asked a Honda technician at my local dealer and he assumed it was the brake light switch. I purchased a break light switch and installed it along with yet another fuse. Worked fine to get me home from work and the next morning I had the same problem. I find it safe to guess that there is a short or some wire is grounding. I have checked all the bulbs and their wires/connections in the trunk, wires/connections under my dash, and have not located any burns, tears, disconnects, touching wires or anything in that sense. If I were to take it to a mechanic or an electrician, are there any special tools they use I might have access to myself? If possible, I would like to attempt to diagnose and locate the short myself to avoid substantial labor and repair costs I cannot afford at this time.
This has been an intermittent problem that is becoming more prevalent. Twice this past week after work at 5pm, so it has sat all day, it would start and then quit, start and quit and then crank, but not turn over. No clicking. Battery is new. Let it sit for awhile and then it starts. Started right up today.

where is the fuel filter located on my Honda?
Recently I went into have my usual oil change and air filter change. I asked if the fuel filter needed to be changed, since my car is at 170,000 miles. He informed me my car had no fuel filter but would require a fuel system service. Is that right? I thought all vehicles had a fuel filter?
hello, I have a 2001 honda accord 4cyl. My husband was fixing the water intake valve. he took apart the hoses them put everything back ,he has done it before but this time the car started sputtering wen u guve it gas like it wants to turn off and the drive light was flashing on and off.We had some one come look at it and he said it was the fuel pump so my husband put a knew one but still the same, we took it to some other place because we wer thinking the computer may need to be reset because he read in the book that wen u unplug wires and do not disconnect the battery it causes the car to get confused.we took it to some place and the told us it is some sensors 4 to be exact. we took it to auto zone and they said the sensors are fine to take it to Daniels total auto care but all they did was tell us the same thing and charge us $80 just to tell us what we told them from the beginnig, but the mechanic ther told my husband that it is probably some wires that are touching because for all that to go wrong just from my husband fixing the water hoses is not normal. We need help knowing how to fix it, we live in arizona and it is getting hot hellllpppp!
