Known Problems

The PCM can misinterpret data from the air fuel sensor and set a false Check Engine (MIL) light requiring a PCM update to repair.

The Check Engine light may illuminate with a transmission fault code. The repair for this concern is to replace the Powertrain Control Module (PCM) and flush the transmission.

Contamination can get in the distributor, cause a misfire and set a Check Engine light.

Some models can have a problem with moisture entering the fuel pressure regulator and affecting the amount of fuel being burned in combustion. This would set a Check Engine Light.

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) can also misinterpret data from the coolant sensor and set a Check Engine Light. For either condition, the PCM will need to be replaced.

A poor electrical ground can cause the dome light not to work.

The air/fuel sensor, located in the exhaust system, may be damaged by moisture in the exhaust resulting in illumination of the Check Engine Light. Replacing the damaged air/fuel sensor and updating the powertrain control module (PCM) software should correct this concern.

Honda issued a recall on some 2005 Accord models due to a defective fuel pump relay. If the fuel pump relay fails, the car will stall or fail to start. For more information on this recall please click here»

The clock light has a tendency to burn out.

The fuel door may not open far enough to clear the body on some models. Installation of a special spring boot is needed for the repair.
