Angry Need help with my civics blower motor

I'm going to put a long story short.

My car was broken into some time ago. The radio was stolen. I had the dash and a lot of other things replaced.

Now, my heater/ac doesn't come on.

I turn the ignition on, and turn the fan switch to full blast and turn the ac light on, the ac cooling fan under the hood comes on for 4-5 seconds then shuts off. I hooked my blower motor up to the battery and the blower motor is running strong.

All the fuses check out ok.

What else can it be?

Also, I checked the resistor on the fan

aw man.. the only thing from honda i WOULDN'T buy!! I've had a lot of experience w/ honda generators in the Army (normally we use cat etc.. but the civilians bring a lot of hondas in). Every ****ing single one of them failed and left us stranded w/out heat in the subzero weather, or w/out ac when it was 110*+ (and that was OUTSIDE the tent).

Oh, and I'd never buy a honda lawnmower :irk:

LOL! Thats awesome. Every single time we were stranded w/out resources due to those honda pieces of crap breaking, they would replace them with a briggs unit and we'd be good to go. The tech couldn't even fix them on the spot lol.

You have an electrical short in the system under the dash. The same thing happend to mine when someone stole the deck from my EF. The A-Holds rip out most of the dash....amatures. I had a buddy fix it (a Honda technician).

If you claimed that repair under your insurance, they should be able to cover the repair also.

Goto Honda | Acura Research, Reviews, Performance Parts, Owners - Honda-Tech.com and do some research to see if anyone had this issue and a fix.

Good luck!!!



And about the Honda Generators...I had an EU2000. They work perfect and ran very quiet. I used it for about 3+ years for my race bike tire warmers and for camping. It never let me down...and never got me into a fight "over a noisy generator".

Interesting. I had somebody recommend that as a problem, but didn't think twice about it. But thats pretty much what happened to me too.

So you think if I open the dash up and look around it will be blatantly obvious? Just trace the heater control knob all the way down or what?

Maybe for "light weight" duty those honda generators are nice, but trust me WHEN YOU NEED THAT DAMN THING, it will fail. Running radars off them and powering multiple tents and ecu's (heater units) and cell phones etc, they fall on their face.

Yes, it was quiet. But so was our I4 isuzu diesel generator lol. It was a car motor in a super nice shell basically, and it's SUPER quiet.

At that time, I didnt have the time nor the tools to look for the issue.

If you know how to disassemble your dash, go for it....only if you feel confident enough. It wouldnt hurt, not unless you break something. It could be something very simple.....

I respect that, but times and technology have changed There are a lot of electricity dependent systems and machines we need and rely on

Well, I know in order to get into the dash the lower dash and console have to be unbolted. Thats about all I know. I guess I'll have to mess with it this weekend then. At least I have a good lead now. Thanks man
