Certain models can misinterpret air fuel sensor data and cause the Check Engine Light to illuminate. A software update from Honda will fix this issue.

On certain models a faulty fuel tank pressure sensor (FTP) can cause the Check Engine Light to illuminate. The FTP sensor will generally require replacement to repair this condition.

On certain models a faulty radiator fan motor can cause the AC not to cool properly. Replacing the faulty motor should correct this problem.

The AC evaporator can develop a refrigerant leak. The AC system will not blow cold air if this happens.

Worn door lock tumblers can cause the door lock to be sticky or not work at all. The lock has to be removed and the tumblers need to be replaced for this issue.

Honda issued a recall of 1998 and 1999 models to inspect and repair the wiring harness under the dash and install a piece of tubing to protect the harness. Various electrical issues can develop if these wires have been damaged.

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.

A groaning noise from the rear differential heard while going through turns can be caused by differential fluid break down. Servicing the rear differential will generally correct this concern.
