Recent Thermostat questions

I just recently purchased an 05 Honda Accord with 93K on it.

I just recently purchased an 05 Honda Accord with 93K on it. There is no heat coming out of the vents even when you set Temp to 82. It only blows cold air. Now I did barely feel a breadth of warm air from the center dash vents but driver and passenger sides are cold air only. What could be the issue?JA: Have you checked to make sure the thermostat is working? What about the coolant level?Customer: Coolant level is full. How do you check the Thermostat?JA: Are you fixing your Accord yourself? What have you tried so far?Customer: I am not fixing it myself. I bought at a Used Lot...I have a 3 month warranty I just want to know what I am looking for and want to know what I am talking about as this is the 2nd car from this place. The first one was a complete Lemon and they gave me something different so my trust in them is little to noneJA: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?Customer: NO just if I am operating heating system incorrectly but I highly doubt it. I think there is a genuine problem with it and seems to be a common issue from everything I have read on Google

My husband has a Honda Civic 2008? And it has a few wonky

My husband has a Honda Civic 2008? And it has a few wonky electrical problems but the main problem at the moment is that the blower motor for the heater/air isn't working. It seems that I remember a service bulletin about a connection in the harness that causes this rather than the fan or fan switch. Opinion?JA: Have you checked to make sure the thermostat is working? What about the coolant level?Customer: The passive air comes out hot when the heater on. Nothing with cool but I wouldn't expect it to I guess.JA: Are you fixing your Civic yourself? What have you tried so far?Customer: No but the mechanic told my husband the whole fan unit needs replacing and if it's a loose wire or a short in the harness it would be wasted money.JA: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?Customer: Yes. Which fuse operates the cigarette lighter and auto mirrors.

1990 Honda Accord Manual. Starts and runs well. Measured

Hi Pearl. 1990 Honda Accord Manual. Starts and runs well. Measured vacuum perfect. Idle control valve new. Throttle butterfly clean and cable free. Runs and idles sweet at standstill. Move off and the engine revs very high. Take foot off the throttle and the engine revs to 3000 rpm for about 30 seconds before dying back to normal idle. Much too exciting in traffic. Where to look next please.JA: How many miles are on the car? What size is the engine?Customer: Engine about half life at 100k. 1600 4 cylinder.JA: Are you fixing your Accord yourself? What have you tried so far?Customer: I have taken it to a reputable garage who plainly had no clue. I dismissed them. I have taken it to a specialist Japanese imported car garage who serviced all engine management components and pronounced them good. No improvement. I have then checked each sensor myself and gone through the vacuum system pipe by pipe and joint by joint all to no avail.JA: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?Customer: I am a mechanical engineer staying with my brother-in-law who is an electronics engineer. Both retired. I have run end of life cars for 50 years and now admit defeat.
