Question Asked: 

I was driving home today and started to hear a light buzzing sound by my dashboard (like a light bulb was about to go out)--I ignored it though. But when I got back in my car tonight, I turned on my car and headlights on and then saw that my dashboard 'blacklight' was no longer working--the mileage, gear, maintenance, needle, etc lights were working fine, but the actual background (i.e. where the speedometer is located) was not lit up (it usually lights up aqua blue). I am pretty sure a fuse went out ...but I am wondering about the possibility of the dashboard lights burning out. If it is the fuse, which ones could be the problem? If it is the dashboard bulbs, how do I replace them? UPDATE: When I got the car, it had custom gauge faceplates installed--I looked online today and saw that they are "Alfa Otto Gauge Faces: White Reverse Glow Gauge." This kit apparently does not need bulbs. So the issue could now deal with the wires for the kit (faceplates/switch/dimmer)...has anyone had this issue with this kit? Thanks so much for your time and possible solution, SouthernOR

The rear right light will work (for braking and night time use) but will not blink!? Other lights & blinkers are working fine. Has anyone had this problem or does anyone know how to fix this? Thank you, SouthernOR

Question Asked: 

My Civic has about 150,000 miles on it. I have had no problems with the car until my last move. The check engine light has decided to "grace" me with its presence. I have taken it to a handful of different shops and they are either clueless or tell me "it's a complex problem" (they have to try this and that, if those don't work, then they need to do this...etc). I have spent so much money on these so called solutions and the darn light still appears! It seems like each time I have someone work on my car, more little issues come about. The last person I took it to (I took it to this guy because he said he would look at it for free), checked the code and he said that my car's gas tank likely has a crack on the top of it?? He said it was very common for Honda Civic 1999's to have this problem. He basically told me that it would cost a lot for me to replace my gas tank and to not worry about the issue unless I start to see gas leaking! In addition, he also said the price of work that would have to be done may outweigh the actual value of the car :( Anyone else with a check engine light and a Honda Civic LX 1999 received this diagnosis? Thanks, AIS
