Most reported Honda Accord problems
A Check Engine Light can come on because some models may misinterpret the ratio of air and fuel being burned for combustion. The powertrain control module (PCM) will need to be replaced to fix the problem.
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.
A water leak on the passenger floor can be caused by a clogged AC evaporator drain.
The ABS modulator valve assembly (hydraulic unit) may develop a brake fluid leak. This can result in illumination of the ABS warning light and in certain cases, loss of braking ability.
On certain models, a transmission solenoid can short-circuit and illuminate the Check Engine Light.
On some models a mis-manufactured AC evaporator core can cause the AC to cool poorly. The AC evaporator needs to be replaced for the AC to cool properly.
Head gasket failure is not uncommon if the engine overheats. If the temperature climbs above the normal operating temperature, turn the heater on the hottest setting, pull over to a safe location, and shut the engine off to allow the engine to cool down.
