do you have a 3rd brake light like on that is on the roof or in the rear window? if so does it work?
the brake lights are usually a 2way bulb so just because the lights work doesn't mean that brake lights will. if the 3rd brake light works replace the brake light bulbs if none of them work including your 3 brake light. check into having your brake switch changed. that is the switch under the brake pedal. when it is pressed the brake lights come on and when released they go off. if the bulbs do not fix the problem than try the switch.

Radio & Tape Player

  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable. If so equipped, disable the Supplemental Restraint System (SRS).
  2. Remove the floor console and the front console panel. On 1984-85 cars, if access to the back of the radio may be gained through other means, such as removing the "pocket" from the console, the console need not be removed.

Radio mounting on 1986-89 Accords

  1. Remove the ashtray and ashtray holder.
  1. On 1986-89 cars:
  2. Remove the coin box, air vents and ashtray lighting bracket.
  3. Remove the dashboard switches on the left and right of the steering wheel.
  4. Lower the steering wheel to its lowest position. Remove the dash visor. This is a large, one-piece assembly which includes the center dash trim. It's plastic; don't break it.
  5. Remove the two screws holding the radio at the rear of the unit.
  6. Carefully push the unit out the front of the dash. When access is gained, disconnect the multi-pin connector and the antenna cable from the unit. Remove the unit.
  7. Reinstall in the reverse order. Take great care not to damage the dash trim and instrument visor. Make certain the connectors are firmly and squarely installed. If applicable, be sure to enable the SRS.

Hello Friend: Recharging your A/C System:

SAFETY GOOGLES RECOMMENED You don't want this in your Eyes or anywhere Else Really.

To do it yourself you'll find Facing Vehicle with hood open

Look up on the Passenger Sise Fire Wall.

You'll See a Plastic Cover which is your A/C Evasporator Cover.On the Right Side of that Fairly Good Sized Cover .

You'll see 2-Caps 1-will have a (H) on it CAUTION Do not use or even bother that one.

You'll want to Use the one Right Next to It with a(L) on it the (L) is the Low Side or (Suction Side)

Thats the one to Recharge your A/c. Remove the Plastic Cap With the (L) on it.

You'll see a Valve like a Tire Valve Core. Same Thing it lets R-34 Refrigerant in ,but will not let it Out.If the Valve is Good.

Since you Doing This yourself I recommend Strongly that you Buy a R-34 Recharge Kit that Comes with a Gauge.

The R-34 Kit you'll have a Hose on it Leading to a Quick Connect Valve.

Now STOP here a minute Go Start your Vehicle Turn the A/C on High or Maximum Cool,and the Fan Swith on High.

Now Shake the can of R-34 Up Good Turn it Upside Down.

Then with 2-Fingers Pull Back the Quick Connect at the end of the Hose and Fit it Over the LOW SIDE Valve Core.

Now on Top of the R-34 There a T-Handle /or a Knob..

Turn the T-Handle ALL the WAY in Clockwise until it STOPS. It Has now Punchured a Hole in the Top of thje R-34 Can.

Since you already have the Quick Connect on the (L) Side.

Now Turn the Handle on top Counter Clockwise.

Watch the Gauge as your Turning Clockwise.

When you see the Gauge Move towards the GREEN ;

Keep a Close Eye on Gauge Make sure you Don't Pass the GREEN MARK into The RED .Stay in The Green.

If You Have the Needle on the Gauge in the Green Close to the RED BUT DON"T LET the GAUGE GO INTO THe RED !

Keeping Shaking Can during this Recharge Process.

NOW Screw the T-Handle ALL the Way Back Clockwise to Seal the Hole that it Puntured in The R-34 Can Top.

Now Take 2-Fingers and Take the Quick connect Off. Replace the Cap.

Your Done. You Should Have COLD Air inside Unless you Have Other A/C System Problems.

This will Recharge your System if ALL else is Good on It.
Please take time to Vote for the Quality of Help i've given you, And a Testamony would be Appreciated Also.

It might just need cleaning. Spray some PB Blaster around the throttle arm where the cable connects to at the base of the carb, and see if that frees up the flaps. And while spraying, fiddle with the throttle linkage.

1987 Honda Accord Automatic Jolts in 2nd Gear

I have a 2 door Honda Accord Hatchback with extreme low mileage (98K), and overall the car drives great, but I notice when accelerating and deccelerating the car "jolts" around 2nd gear and smooths out in higher gears. Should I be concerned for the near future or is this normal for this car? Also, what could I potentially do to smooth out the shifting for the long haul, as I intend to have this car for some time? Thanks

My son is looking to buy his first car. We found an 87 Honda in great condition, but when you shift from park to drive, it makes a 'clunk' noise and the car jolts and shakes some. Is this normal for an automatic transmission this old, or is it a sign that it's about to fail?
