If a check engine light is appearing when the car starts then the ECU is receiving an alert from somewhere in the engine. The computer should receive a diagnostic test which will provide an answer as to why the check engine light appeared on the 1997 Honda Civic.
There are pages and pages of things that can cause a check engine light. You need to have it checked with a scantool. Then the code can be diagnosed and repaired.
I had this problem with mine (1995 Civic) and after the 3rd mechanic got it, all he did was replace the computer and it works fine. The others had no clue there was a computer on board.
check the codes and see what comes up, that'd be where i start...
There are multiple reasons. Have the ECU scanned and that will tell you where to start looking and what part is being effected.
Push and hold the odometer reset button and then turn the ignition switch to the on position but do not start the engine. After around 5 seconds the light will reset.
The fuse box, on your 1993 Honda Civic, is located in the engine compartment. A diagram of the fuses can be found on the inside of the fuse box cover.
The SRS (supplemental restraint system) is your airbag system. The the should light up when you start your car and go away after a few seconds. If it stays on, there is a problem with the system. You should probably take it to a certified Honda mechanic or a Honda dealership
What about it?
This is an interference engine and as such if you do this repair incorrectly you will have engine damage when you attempt to start the vehicle. I recommend you have this done by a professional.
When you attempt the start the engine it will not start and will more than likely damage the valves and or pistons.
Whichever side you like. The car doesn't care.
look under the passenger side dashboard, under the glove compartment. you will see a green rubber or plastic thing. with 2 plugs in it. put a jumper between those 2 holes. then check the check engine light after you put your car in pre-start mode. it will start flashing and 1 long = 10 1 short= 1 long long short = 21 get it..... look on google for keyword in google. READ HONDA CIVIC ENGINE CODES.
but will second time start.

The cost to replace a transmission on a Honda Civic depends on where the transmission is purchased, if it is new or used, and the charge of labor if any at all. Some used transmissions for a Honda Civic can start around $500. A new transmission can start around $1,700.
when really cold it will start and sit at 1,500 but then when the engine warmes up it should sit at usually 600 to 800 rpm
When airbags deploy on a Honda Civic the SRS system is alerted. This will not allow the car to properly start. The SRS system will need to be properly reset.
If you are looking to purchase a used Honda Civic VTi, a good place to start would be with used car dealerships. Any Honda dealership would have new Honda Civic VTis available. If they didn't, they could order one in for you.
check the distributor
Who knows the answer? I have the same problem with my 91 Honda Civic Hatchback. Thanks.
www.b20vtec.com would be a good place to start or www.honda-tech.com
If your 1994 Honda Civic is unable to start, the problem could be a connector that is not well fitted from the transmission installation, especially if you just replaced your transmission.
It can only mean one thing "Check your engine"
If a 1997 Honda Civic will not star there may be an issue spark. When there isn't enough spark to ignite the fuel the car will not turn on.
