Hi, I have a 1995 honda Odyssey with a short in the tail light and dash light circuit. I need a more detailed wiring schematic that shows where the readio and dash lights dimmer switch tie in. The car has an after market stereo; I think the short may be somewhere there. If you are a wiring and short finding guru, I could really use some help...


I would suggest when making any repairs yourself to pick up the service manual. The factory service manual for your vehicle is actually quite cheap. It has every nut and bolt along with all the wiring diagrams. ... Honda Odyssey

Have a check engine light on 2003 Kia Spectra GS. Told by mechanic that the codes state cylinder misfire in 2 cylinders and thinks it's a blown head gasket or cracked valve.

On my 97 Sunfire the check engine light was staying on all the time. My scanner gave me a P0342 code. I cleaned the connection to the cam position sensor and coated the wires with insulating grease.

When I shut of the engine and restart it 3 times the light goes out on the 3rd start but comes on again after a few miles. Again 3 starts and the light goes out and so on....Do I need a new sensor or could it b
