2004 Honda Accord Problems
A faulty Electric Load Detector (ELD) can cause the head lights to dim and/or illuminate the Check Engine Light. A failed ELD will require replacement.
The front brake rotors can warp and cause a vibration when braking. The rotors will need to be machined or in cases where they are worn to thin, replaced to correct this issue.
One or both of the rear sway bar end links may break resulting in a knocking noise from the rear of the vehicle.
The ABS modulator (hydraulic unit) can leak air into the brake system and cause a low brake pedal. A new ABS modulator will be needed if it is diagnosed to be the source of the leak.
If the brake pedal feels hard the first time it is pressed in the morning, it could be due to a problem with the vacuum supply hose for the brake booster. A revised brake booster hose is available to address this concern.
Plugged moon roof drains can cause a water leak inside the car. The water will usually leak onto the driver's or passenger's head when the car turns a corner.
Engine hesitated while accelerating from a stop. The check engine light (CEL) came on immediately. Autozone pulled the code of P2647. I replaced the oil pressure switch (37250-PNE-G01) and the o-ring (91319-PAA-A01).
Front compliance (lower control arm ) bushings tend to crack and break requiring replacement.
