#1 - Check Engine Light On problem of the 2003 Honda Accord
The vehicle having this issue was a 2003 Honda Accord. The car suddenly would not accelerate and change into the 3rd gear while driving on a busy road. Had the car towed to an authorized mechanic who diagnosed the issue as transmission failure with the 3rd gear. This is the same issue that caused Honda to issue a recall for their 2003 v6 Accord in 2004. A month prior, on two separate occasions, I was driving between 40mph-45mph when all of a sudden the car would not accelerate and slowed down, while I simultaneously engaged the accelerator. During both incidences the tcs and check engine lights immediately came on. After pulling over and turning the car off and on, the lights did not remain on. This is a very dangerous car with thousands of complaints already noted for the same issue. Honda needs to recall this dangerous car. This check engine light on problem happened on Saturday, April 13, 2013.

#3 - Check Engine Light On problem of the 2007 Honda Accord
The vehicle was a 2007 Honda Accord. VIN of the vehicle was 1HGCM56837_. Check engine light went on and off a few times, took it to autocheck and found a code. Took it to dealer, they could not locate the code and claimed there is no issue they can find, come back when it happens again. Few weeks later, the check engine light came again in the evening, and now with other problems, the whole electric system including lights, radio etc started dancing on and off, abs light came on and off. Happened for a few minutes and then everything went smooth. I took the car back to dealership and they claim the code p0685 was found and there was a software update for the pcm and they applied that update. I asked why was there no intimation about it and the response was that it was not considered as one of the critical updates. With the experience I had, the way things were happening in that 2-3 minutes of electric system dance, anything could have gone wrong with the car. There should be a recall notice sent for this update. This check engine light on issue occurred Feb. 25, 2013.

The car is a 1998 Honda Accord. Car suddenly shuts off on its own while driving; all electrical goes off except for check engine light, abs light, or none at all. Happened 3 or 4 times, sometimes at freeway speed, car restarted from neutral a few minutes later. Taken to Honda dealer & diagnosed with a faulty transmission module, replaced for $450. Yet the problem just recurred not long after that repair. This creates a serious road hazard & potential for crash & serious injury, as suddenly & without warning, the vehicle shuts down & cannot be controlled with any acceleration, power steering or normal braking. This vehicle has always been maintained meticulously, since new, per recommended schedule with Honda dealerships. Browsing the internet shows this to be an unusually common, serious & difficult to diagnose issue with Hondas & acuras from ~1997-2002. The failure date was Monday, August 27, 2012.

#9 - Check Engine Light On problem of the 2001 Honda Accord
The vehicle involved is a 2001 Honda Accord. I bought this car brand new in 2001 from a Honda dealership. A couple of years later, the transmission had failed. I called the Honda dealership where I had bought the car and they acknowledged that this generation had a known transmission defect. They repaired my car for free because it was still under warranty at the time and I was told that the transmission now had an extended 7year/109,000mile warranty. On July 15th, 2012, I was driving on highway 101s at 65mph when the check engine light suddenly came on. I noticed a slight loss in power, but my car did not die out. The check engine light stayed on. The next day, I decided to test drive the car again to see if the check engine light was a one time occurrence. I started up the car, put it in reverse, and then to drive. There was a sudden delayed jerk from reverse to drive. I managed to plug in a code reader into the car's computer port and pulled up two codes: p0700 and p0740. Both of these codes are associated with the transmission. Not again?!?! my car has now exceeded the extended warranty and I am afraid that Honda will not cover the repairs. I read on several forums that this has also occurred to Honda owners where the dealership has refused to repair the vehicle due to the expired extended warranty coverage. This issue happened on Sunday, Jul. 15, 2012.

#14 - Check Engine Light On problem of the 2011 Honda Accord
The vehicle is a 2011 Honda Accord. Wife was driving at highway speed when car began to violently shake as if engine was misfiring. Check engine light came on, then severely reduced power. She was barely able to exit and make it across the access road and into a turn lane with the accelerator to the floor. Car still shook violently as she placed it in park. Dealership cannot explain shaking. Car only has 4,700 miles and was purchased new from servicing dealer. They said oil was 1. 5-2 quarts low so they topped it off. Tripped a code for a stuck soilenoid in the camshaft timing system so they reprogrammed the pcm and gave the car back to us. This was an extremely dangerous situation as my wife did not have enough power to move the vehicle out of traffic. Had there been more traffic in her way or someone following closely, she would have been in an accident. Dealer was still puzzled as to the power loss and shaking and just shrugged their shoulders. They said to watch the oil level and if this happens again to bring it back. We hope this does not happen again as it was dangerous and stranded my wife on the side of an interstate for 3 hours waiting on a tow truck. Please let us know if this warrants investigation or you need any additional information. This issue happened on Monday, April 25, 2011.

2008 Honda Accord ex-l with the check engine light on and off for the past year and a half. When I bring the car back to the dealer they say I have no oil in the engine. This goes on every other month and they have not solved the problem. My car is still fortunately under extended warranty, but is there more damage being done that once I reach my warranty the car will be worthless? the dealer and american Honda have been useless in this matter and have told me to drive my car with every warning light on until they can figure out how to fix it. At what point in a car just a lemon? if I couldn't turn back time 2 years I would have never bought this car. It was February 19, 2010 when this check engine light on issue happened.

#18 - Check Engine Light On problem of the 2007 Honda Accord
The vehicle is a 2007 Honda Accord. When driving the car, the check engine light flashed on, then off. We took it to the mechanic who found nothing wrong. A week later, the light flashed on and off again. Another trip to the mechanic and then to the dealer revealed that a spark plug had come loose and broke apart causing the cylinder head, cylinder wall and piston to be damaged. The fix was that the car basically needed a new engine (replaced short block, cylinder head, all spark plugs and all necessary gaskets and seals). Due to the number of miles on the car (69k at the time of incident), it was no longer under warranty. Everyone from the mechanic to the dealer said they had never seen this happen before. Honda did end up paying for a percentage of the repair, but our portion was still around $2500. This was our first Honda, we bought it based on reputation and because we put a lot of miles on cars. We never expected to have to replace the engine at three years old. This check engine light on issue occurred Thursday, February 10, 2011.
#19 - Check Engine Light On problem of the 2005 Honda Accord
The car was a 2005 Honda Accord. The mass air flow sensor has major issues. During the normal course of driving the car became sluggish on going uphill like losing power. Then the check engine light would come on. We took it to a dealer and they informed us that it was the mass airflow sensor. We had it replaced. Then about 6 months later the same thing happened again and we took the vehicle to the dealer and again it was the mass airflow sensor. This time the dealer cleaned the sensor and informed my wife that According to specs that the sensor could require cleaning after something like 80 hours of operation. This was crazy and I asked the dealer do they have the garage lined with Accords getting their mass airflow sensor cleaned? that did not make common sense. Then about another 6 months later the vehicle did it again. We took the vehicle to the dealer and informed them that it was going to be the sensor again. They said well we have to look at the code. I told them that I had been through this twice before and I wanted the underlying problem found. They called me back about 2 hours later and informed that the code read the mass airflow sensor. I told them that I told them that on the paperwork when I dropped the car off and I asked them what was the underlying problem causing this. They said they could only go by the code. That showed me that the dealers have no idea about their own vehicles. This did not start until the vehicle had about 40000 miles on it and it seems to be happening every six months. I have lost faith in this vehicle and its reliability. First happened April 2007, then again December 2007 and the last time was may 7 2008. It was 05/07/08 when this check engine light on issue occurred.

The vehicle is a 1999 Honda Accord. Vehicle identification number (VIN) of the vehicle is 1HGCG3142X_. My primary concern is the engine trouble with my 1999 Accord. When I need to accelerate the car "misfires" According to the gresham Honda dealership. This is where the car is being serviced. Contact name and number would be mark cawthorn @ 503-676-7070. I am very hesitant to pull out in traffic at any speed because I never know when my car will misfire. At times the acceleration sticks at both 2-3rpms. Basically, there is no acceleration. The check engine light no longer comes on when the car hesitates. The first two times that the car was taken to the Honda dealership the check light did come on. My car is currently on it's 5th stay with Honda. They(Honda and their technicians) seem to have no idea what the problem was. Hopefully the problem will be resolved easily and most importantly, quickly. I'd hate to be the cause of an accident. Equally as important, I have had a failure with my abs. While there was no accident, I barely stopped at the intersection while brakes locked up on pavement. I have had passengers in my vehicle on such occasions and each would be willing to give tesimonies to such failures as listed above. In fact, the Honda technician has also experienced the "misfire" first hand in my Accord. I may be a little difficult to reach with college and two jobs but please feel free to leave messages at either phone number. Thank you for your time, amber weimerskirch. (tiresize: w-10).
