Common problems reported by Honda owners.

The Air Conditioning Doesn’t Work

Does the fan in your Honda blow at full blast all of the time, or doesn’t blow at all? This could be due to a nonfunctional thermal fuse that interferes with the vehicle’s fan. Pacific Automotive can install a new control unit to fix the problem. We can also alert you if this is the sign of a larger problem affecting the entire heating and AC system – which is more than just an annoyance, it could mean a more serious problem.

The Brakes Don’t Work Properly

Your Honda’s anti-lock brakes are controlled by an electronic system that distributes braking across all of the wheels depending on forces are acting on the car and how the weight is distributed. The result is supposed to be wheels that don’t lock no matter how hard you step on the brakes. So if you suddenly slam on the brakes, you will still be able to steer. These advanced braking features also mean there are more parts that can break or things that can go wrong. Don’t worry! Just call Pacific Automotive. We will use the latest software and diagnostic tools to analyze and repair your brakes, usually on the same day. Call us today – properly functioning brakes are essential to the safety of you and your family and any other passengers in the car – like a friend or the family dog.

Your Honda Check Engine Light is On
