They will work once you either get them bored or do the best you can manually. I have a set waiting to be painted and bored, same drill as putting the RSX or TL Wheels on.

Talking Brake Lamp warning (NOT brake light)

I had the in dash Brake Lamp warning light come on (below door warning indicator lights). All the brake lights work with pedal.

Checked connectors for both LH and RH lamp sensors.

Work around other than replacing sensors/working bulbs?
Good way to permanently disable?

Great info in this thread, incl. FSM pages (thx QRX)

My coupe will on occasion do this with the brake lamp warning light although the bulbs pass visual checks. I understand it is a resistance change that gets the warning light. A previous owner had spliced in a hitch to the wiring and then removed it. I think however the bulbs sometimes have an issue where the brake filament doesn't necessarily burn through but gives a significant enough resistance change to signal the warning light. Sometimes the coupe resets that warning light on its own within the same day (or the next vehicle on/off cycle). I went ahead and spent the $4 and replaced the entire set as I got tired of the inconsistent warning light. Now had these been the pricey LED bulbs that are in my sedan I wouldn't have been so calm replacing bulbs that kept showing all the brakes worked.

As for the only permanent disabling of the warning sensor that I know about involves us to remove/unplug the door and trunk open indicator from the cluster. There was a LEGEND indicator mod some years ago that basically overwrote the brake light warning light to say "LEGEND" but that doesn't sound like what you would want to do. It means the warning light stays illuminated at all times and also you wouldn't know if a brake light had gone out without doing manual checks (which I do regularly in my sedan with the cluster mod).

Hi Chaka,

Thanks for the explanation.
My local Autozone and Oreilly want $6 for a pair of 2057 bulbs. Would need to get 2 packs to replace all of them. I replaced the pair of LH bulbs when one of them went out 3 years ago. I think what's happening might be:

1) sensor electronics have aged and are now too sensitive
and/or
2) the difference between the 3 year old bulbs and 10 year? old bulbs is enough to set the warning light off.

I have no problem buying brake light bulbs but I hate the idea of replacing bulbs that are working. On the other hand the warning light is killing me. sigh.

Cheers,

Default Timing belt only

Is it wishful thinking that I don't have to remove the crankshaft pulley bolt if I only have to do the timing belt and not the water pump?

Is putting that cross member back difficult ('93-'95 models)?



Cheers,

Yes, you need to pull the pulley. Crossmember is not hard to replace.

I had problems with the brake lamp warning light. The fix was to replace the bulb sockets (used ones from the wrecking yard). There was apparently enough corrosion in the old ones to trigger the light.

Hey stephen good tip on checking for corrosion inside the bulb socket.
Also, thanks ActionJackson for the reply on the pulley bolt.

Cheers

Default cold start to warmed up

Legend takes about 5 minutes to warm up from a cold start. About the same whether it is 40*F outside or 80*F. Is that about right? Its an automatic '94 GS sedan.

Thanks for the response Tree; ordered an OEM one 19301-P8E-A10 it says HONDA on it though.

Cheers,

Your thermostat is probably broken, replace with an OEM one from Acura.
