Honda Accord Crack Check Engine Even Without OBD Diagnostic Tool
QUICK DETAILS ABOUT HONDA ACCORD
The Honda Accordis a series of automobiles manufactured by Honda since 1976, best known for its four-door sedan variant, which has been one of the best-selling cars in the United States since 1989. The Accord nameplate has been applied to a variety of vehicles worldwide, including coupes, wagons, hatchbacks and a crossover.
In 1982, the Accord became the first car from a Japanese manufacturer to be produced in the United States when production commenced in Marysville, Ohio at Honda’s Marysville Auto Plant. The Accord has achieved considerable success, especially in the United States, where it was the best-selling Japanese car for fifteen years (1982–97), topping its class in sales in 1991 and 2001, with around ten million vehicles sold. Numerous road tests, past and present, rate the Accord as one of the world’s most reliable vehicles. The Accord has been on the Car and Driver 10Best list a record 30 times.
Since initiation, Honda has offered several different car body styles and versions of the Accord, and often vehicles marketed under the Accord nameplate concurrently in different regions differ quite substantially. It debuted in 1976 as a compact hatchback, though this style only lasted through 1989, as the line-up was expanded to include a sedan, coupé, and wagon. By the Accord’s sixth generation in the 1990s, it evolved into an intermediate vehicle, with one basic platform but with different bodies and proportions to increase its competitiveness against its rivals in different international markets. For the eighth generation of the Accord released for the North America market in 2007, Honda had again chosen to move the model further up-scale and increase its size.This pushed the Accord sedan from the upper limit of what the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) defines as a mid-size car to just above the lower limit of a full-size car,with the coupe still rated as a mid-size car. The current ninth generation Accord for the North America market is again classified as a mid-size car, falls just short of full-size car classification with the combined interior space of 119 cubic feet.
PLEASE SELECT THE OBD SOCKET OF YOUR CAR BELOW AND FOLLOW THE JUMPER SETTINGS.
|Year range: 1989 to 2001
Locations: Under the passengers seat.
Year range: 1998 to 2009
Locations: Under the drivers side dash panel.
PLEASE NOTE:If after following the instructions below the Check Engine Light does not flash it either means there are no fault codes or there is a connection error. To test connection, remove the TPS and run the engine then recheck codes.
1. If possible run the engine to bring the oxygen sensor up to operating temperature then switch the engine off.
2. Connect the terminals using your own jumper wire, as shown in the diagram above.
3. Turn ignition ON, the Check Engine Light (CEL) should be flashing on your car dashboard.
4. Read codes as described in the Code Format Description below.
Code Format Diagram
• Each code is made up of two series of flashes.
• The long flashes indicate the ‘tens’ digits.
• The short flashes indicate the ‘ones’ digits.
• A long pause separates each code sequence.
• Code Format Diagram shows above is code No. 12.
• If nolongflashes are observed then the code is a straight count of short flashes. i.e. 4 flashes = code 4.
|ECU||ECU Bad, or ECU Fuse Blown||Check ECU Fuse, Check Eeprom is in socket correctly and not loose|
|1||Oxygen Sensor||Loose Wiring, Bad Sensor||Check wiring, check sensor *|
|3||Map Sensor||Loose Wiring, Bad Sensor||Make sure sensor is plugged in and wiring is correct|

- After the faults have been rectified, trouble codes can be erased by using a Scan Tool connected to the data link connector (DLC) or as follows:
- Switch ignition OFF.
- Remove radio fuse (7.5A) from underhood fusebox for 10 seconds minimum
- Reinstall fuse.
- Repeat checking procedure to ensure no data remains in ECM fault memory.
