Question Answered: Why do I keep blowing main battery fuses?
March 24, 2012, 10:49 AM
A short circuit is blowing fuses. Best to check to see if when battey was replaced if and wires could be moved from where they were. You could have serious damage to on board systems if not taken care of asap.

If the lamp has not gone out after a few days you will need to have a service shop or dealer run a diagnostic test on the fuel evaporative system. The onboard fuel emmisions system test itself for possible evaporative leaks in the fuel tank and lines. It has turned the light on because a sensor indicates the system will not hold pressure. This is not a safety issue...and emmisions issue.
Question Answered: My coupe 3.0L transmission has a very slight pause when it shifts.

It could help but it also could cause a transmission that getting ready to fail go a bit quicker. Fluid flush is actually more like a transfusion of fluid. It does a more compleat change of fluid more than a drain and refill does, but in your case assuming your car has higher miles on it you can expect there is some age and wear in the transmission. In my opinion if the transmission is slipping at all slick fluid may allow it to slip even more. I like to reccomend fluid changes and flushes as a preventative maintenance measure to extend the life of a transmission...therefore those services should done early in the game not late when its too late. Best to see a transmission specilist to see what to do first.

I'm not at work today so I cannot look up on my compotent locater....but I think its in the underhood fuse/relay center. When you open cover it may have a diagram of relay locations in the cover top.
Question Answered: I need to replace all the rubber for doors, Roof, trunk where can purchase it

If you are talking about the weather seals my guess the Honda dealer may be the only source. If its a noise when you open the doors many times its hinge that needs a lubricant oil sprayed on it. Its good to treat the weather seals and window tracks with a sylicone spray lubricate you can buy at any auto parts store.
Question Answered: My 1st,second and third gear engaged very stiff,

Many clutch systems are operated by a hydralic master cylinder simular to a brake system. Most use a dOT3 specfication brake fluid same as the brakes. The reservoir is usally located near the brake master cylinder. Look for that reservoir that is smaller that the brake reservor and see if it is low on fluid level. Make sure you use the proper fluid if it needs any. If that does not help your shift issue I suggest you have a professional technician check it asap.
Question Answered: engine runs lean

Look for vacume hose that could be split or disconnected. From that point it could be caused by various faulty sensors, wiring problem, or a mechanical problem. Driving with a lean condition for extended period could leed to more problems.
Question Answered: transmission over heaeted pops up on the dash board.

Service professional that has proper diagnostic equipment can look at the computer transmission control system to see if its a faulty signal or a more serious mechanical problem with the transmission. You sould check your fluid level first...that is if the transmission is equipped with a dip stick. If it does not have one a technician can check it by another procedure.

Double check your battery connections. Make sure you did not get the polarity wrong...If that happened the main fuse link could have blown.
