I need help! This is the 2nd time my right headlight died on me and I just changed the HIDs 3 weeks ago. I checked to see if probably it might have been something with the wiring but I commected my left hid that does work to the right side and it worked. The same problem occurred the first time that's why I bought new hids and thought that was the problem but apparently not. please if I can get some ideas or help would really appreciate it

My wire has broke and need to replace....?

But the shifts still smooth

80 chars killed me. I replaced the battery and now, when I turn on the head lights, the dash lights go dim. There are no indicator lights on. I have the CarMax warranty, but they don't answer their phones. Where else can I go that is covered by their warranty?

Whenever I start the car from a child start. (Meaning if it's been sitting for 5 hours or more). The car will crank over for a longer period than normal. Then, I'd I take off right away the accelerator seems very touchy, and the car surges and jerks for the first few mins of driving. After that the car runs beautifully.

Some have said it's the nature of the car. Some say to buy(flash pro)$600
Some say let the car warm up until the rpms fall from 1500 and the temperature of the car goes up 3 bars.

I live in Minnesota so winter's get pretty cold here. If this is normal I am alright with that just as long as I'm not doing damage to the car. I would just like to know before my 30 day warrantee with the dealership is over. The car has 43589 miles and it's a 6 speed manual. I love this car.

Everything is perfect except for this one issue..what do you suggest.


everytime I go to start my car it make a buzzing sound.I have to turn my key several times before the car finally starts. I have had the starter and alternator tested and everything under the hood is working fine. I have been told it could be the ignition switch. Is replacing just the electrical part an easy task? and how do I do it?

I was installing a new in dash radio, and then a 12" pioneer sub and 1200 amp, in to the wires that were already installed in the car from a previous owner. May have hooked up wires back words or wrong.. But now the car won't start turns on fine, radio works.. Not amp or sub, cranks fine, and won't start with a jump so it's not the alternator, also checked all the fuses.. Anything I'm missing??

2004 civic si, 77000 miles no prior mechanical issues, was at a stop in neutral and engine was revving up to 3500 rpm. when in gear car wants to speed up even though gas pedal not engaged. Total weird time was about 10 minutes, car seemed to correct itself(?)...

it stays accelerated and auto parts says its a censor but it wont delete

after awhile 0 comes up on spedometer

inside of windows have ice on cold mornings

The weather got extremely cold one night. I began driving and my steering wheel felt odd. I had to turn the wheel excessively to get the car to turn and when driving it wouldn't remain straight. But it didn't act like a normal alignment problem. It would pull to the left as well as the right. It seemed as if the steering was so loose that whichever way the road leaned, the car would pull that way too. Also, my tpms light came on the same night. not sure if that has anything to do with it. I know my si has electric power steering so I know it's not a lack of fluid or anything. PLEASE HELP!!!

Gas cap has been notched up.

Driving along and my temperature gauge rises to hot. Sometimes it the temp. will drop on the gauge, some times it won't.

Hi, I'm wondering if anyone could help me with this, a little while back my passenger side low beam headlight broke and I'm not sure how so since i was replacing the light i bought myself some HID's and when i was installing them the passenger side never came on. so i tried the full ballast and light on the other side and it worked so i don't know if anyone ever had this problem and could help me with it or if i'm on my own with this. thanks

The turn signal light bulb on the side mirror of my Honda Civic Sport year 2008 has blow. How do you open the cover to replace the light bulb?

engine usually starts quickly

i wanna buy 18 inch rims and they come off a 2009 civic si and are 5bolt pattern...will they fit

I have a 2008 Honda Civic Si Sedan. 103,000 miles on it. and today the maintenance minder code A24 came on. and its been making a funny sound up front of the passenger side. i think its the transmission or the clutch. i would like to know for sure.

key will lock and open driver's side door

Sometimes when i drove forward it was sounding like i was driving in reverse. And when i take off to drive in first gear it will act up like it didnt want to take off then when it grip the car will drive.

Everyone I've ever met who owns an 8th gen Civic Si has experienced grinding in 2nd, 3rd or both 2nd and 3rd gears at high RPMs. Why are there no reports of this issue on this website, and why does Honda do nothing to fix it? Many of us have gone to dealerships, including myself, and usually get the standard answer: the problem could not be duplicated, therefore cannot be fixed. How can you blow off an issue like this and just say that every one who has the issue just fails to push the clutch pedal in all the way? There is no possible way that all of these drivers, across all ages/education levels/races/etc. just happen to forget to push the clutch pedal in all the way only on two specific gears on one specific car model.

I have a b18c swap in a honda civic, this swap is ref'd and all i need is a smog check to register it yet the cel light wont go away.

I have replaced;
fuel filter
both oxygen sensor 1 and 2
cap and rotor

i borrowed a scanner and the manifold absolute pressure sensor reading averages between 7.4-8.9
the throttle position sensor is 9.4% at idle
engine coolant temperature sensor ranges up to 184F and then the fan kicks on
intake air temperature sensor ranges between 60F(idle)-110F
Also i had the valve clearances checked and they were fine
I inspected the injectors and resistance is 12.2-12.3 OHM's
Also this car has a fuel pressure gauge on the fuel filter, and it reads normal (51psi @ idle)

Thank you

At warm weather the cooling system has periods of warm and cold air. It gets warm mainly when the car stops. But even when moving we get about 30s of warm air coming in instead of cool air.

My car has issues starting. When I turn on the ignition, the lights turn on in the dash, it crank a couple times, but does not start. I will wait a few seconds, and try again, until it starts. This will happen at least once a week. It can happen on a cold start and even after i drove for a bit. I replaced the battery a few weeks ago and cleaned the battery terminals. My next guess is change the spark plugs and fuel filter? I dont know. Please help. Thanks
