Gauge not working, accord, 1998, six cylnder, check fuse…

Customer Question
Hi, gauge not working ...

Hi, gauge not working

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the model/year of your Honda?

Accord, 1998, six cylnder

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Accord yourself? What have you tried so far?

Check fuse diagram; none indicated as associated with dash guages

Mechanic's Assistant: Most vehicles have two fuse panels. Have you located both?

I have; I have reviewed the fuse descriptions in the manual. None indicate being associated with the dash gauges. I have not actually checked the fuses

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

Sure...engine just looses power when driving. As if fuel line clogged. rpm drops while pedal is steady...need to flutter the pedal to get up to speed again... then happens again in few minutes. Have replaced fuel pump and associated fuel filter.

Thank you very much for saving my daughter and her family a lot of money on her Honda. You are definitely on my list for future help. Thanks, again.

I just heard from my mechanic. You were right...a $45.00 job. THANK YOU!! Your response was received in less than 10 minutes!!

Linda B.USA

Your answers were clear and the diagrams were perfect. Dealer wanted $87 for an hour of labor and even I did it in 15 minutes.

EdUSA

HONDA PLATINUM was great. I really appreciate his help. I was ready to trade my new Honda until he told me to wait until I got 3,000 miles on it and my gas mileage would get much better.

SummerUSA

I took the Power Steering O-Ring service bulletin linked from JustAnswer to my Acura dealer, and not only did they no-charge the o-ring, they also replaced the power steering pump at no cost.

Gary RStevenson Ranch, CA

Wonderful service, prompt, efficient, and accurate. Couldn't have asked for more. I cannot thank you enough for your help.

Mary C.Freshfield, Liverpool, UK

This expert is wonderful. They truly know what they are talking about, and they actually care about you. They really helped put my nerves at ease. Thank you so much!!!!
