A number of problems can cause a "check engine light" to come on. All of them related to federal emission standards that are monitored by various sensors located on the engine, in the exhaust system, and in the fuel/vapor emission control system. the easiest way to fix this is to attach the car to an obd2 scantool and extract the code which directs the technician to the diagnostic path to take to find and repair the problem. If your gas tank cap is not tightened or put on properly, it can also cause the check engine light to come on. What I did with my car is unplug the battery for 5min. and if it goes away then that was probably the reason, if it comes back on then its something a little more serious. Is this a 4cyl or V6 , on many accord models, the top reason for the check engine light is this as follows , (i have serviced many ) On 4cyl models , the EGR valve second heated oxygen sensor, down stream , before and after the cat. main ones. On V6 models EGR valve , missfire , transmission controls Kongkit Raggan-Supatanampon

You can reset the 2004 Honda Accord check engine light by removing the instrument light fuse. The location of the fuse can be found on the inside cover of the fuse box.

A 2000 Honda Accord check engine light will stay on if the ECU is not reset. To reset the light remove the ECU fuse from the engine bay fuse box. Reinsert it after 5 seconds.

There is one, but it's not marked "check engine." It looks like a little engine with a lightning bolt on it.

Sounds like an engine misfire. Can be bad spark plug, plug wire, fuel injector, or bad coil on plug.

The check engine light may be flashing on a 1996 Honda Accord if a timing issue is detected or oil pressure is low. The exact cause can be determined by connecting an OBDII code reader.

You will need to access a diagnostic computer to turn off the check engine light on the 2003 Honda Accord. You could also remove the fuse from the dash lights or instrument panel.

Check The ignition wires and coil. Make sure that you don't have a fouled plug. If these are ok then there could be an internal engine problem, check for proper compression.

Check the 1989 Honda Accords timing. If the engine has jumped time then the engine will buck and sputter.

When a check engine light appears on a 1991 Honda Accord the ECU is letting the driver know the engine is sending an error signal. Sourcing out the problem through a diagnostics test will help narrow what could be something as simple as a blown fuse to something as terrible as a blown engine.
