Our 2002 Honda Accord is doing some weird electrical things in cold weather. My mechanic already replaced the ignition switch but it continues to have electrical problems in cold weather.
Here are the symptoms :
Oct. 26th - the back left window lowered itself when the car was turned on. I could not pull it back up from the front window control panel, but our daughter could from the back left door.
November 1st morning – The oil light flashed on and off, and when I stopped in a gas station to check I was only a quart of oil low. I filled it up, the light went off, but then started blinking and beeping the next time the car was turned on.
November 1st evening – I turned on the car and the back left window went down, the oil light flashed, the car beeped, and the windshield wipers turned on. Only after I turned the car off and turned it back on did I regain control of the window and the windshield wipers. The oil light continued flashing all the way home.
After the ignition switch replacement the oil light is still flashing and the car is making clicking noises. The back left window continues to open on it’s own when the car starts in cold weather. The mechanic now thinks we might need a new multiplex control box but he isn’t sure. Any thoughts on what the problem is would be appreciated.
Thanks for your help in exorcising the car!
