#1

My son drives a 99 Honda Accord with over 180k miles.Today as he turned a corner, the lights dimmed and the gauges baled to zero and then all went back to normal- happened within seconds. No loss of steering or braking control. Any thoughts on what the problem might be?

If possible, remove the caps from the battery and check the electrolite level.

And also check the battery connections for tightness.

A failing ignition switch can cause this and the '99 Accords are under a Recall for this problem. If this Recall has never been performed before then you can have it done free of charge at any Honda dealer.

There are also a few other Recalls out on this car so have them all done at once as it’s all free of charge.
