I have 2001 Honda Civic with about 126K miles on it. Recently it’s had multiple issues I can’t figure out…
- Most recent: fans stopped working. nothing happened - one day fine, the next gone, nothing. This is the blower inside the car.
- About a month ago, check engine light came on had it checked out and the mechanic said “it’s the thermostat but we can’t know what’s wrong until we get in there” that would be a couple hundred dollars. Since I wasn’t actually having any problems at all I let it be. About that time there was a seatbelt recall so got that taken care of (probably unrelated). The temp gauge looks normal.
- Electrical locks have been playing musical chairs for a while. When I lock the car I have to check all four doors - invariably one of them is unlocked which then lock manually.
I should mention as soon as I bought the car (7 years and 60 thousand miles ago) I had to replace something having to do with the AC, the condenser? It ran me about 1200 whatever it was.
I’m wondering, are these things related? a lot of electrical stuff? seems that the fans working would be the first thing to get fixed? how much should this cost me? or the thermostat?
