I just purchased a 92 L Coupe automatic to go along with my 94 GS 6 spd. The problem is that the right side of the guages (gas guage side) has a light or maybe two burned out so it is difficult to see the fuel level at night. Also, the radio has some burned out bulbs. Has anyone here done this themselves? What do I need to do to access these? Should I just let the (gag!) dealer handle it? Any help is appreciated.

Comparing the coupe to the sedan is like comparing apples to oranges. I've had a Nissan 300ZX Twin Turbo and an '89 Legend LS 5 spd and the comparison is somewhat similar to those.

If you need space then the GS has gobs of that - in fact I think the Legend coupe doesn't use the interior space nearly as efficiently as it could considering the outside dimensions. The coupe seat bolsters are a little snug for me and I'm a skinny guy. The 300ZX had adjustable bolsters to accommodate various body shapes - do coupe seats adjust, too?

As far as ride, I much prefer the coupe. This is even after I've replaced the stock GS struts with Konis. There is something much more buttoned-down and sportier about the coupe.

Transmissions - well, I always like to shift the gears myself but I got the auto for my kids to learn to drive on. The auto does have the firm shift to 2nd that others write about but I don't find that offensive, just sporty. The car was a great bargain for us since they took our van in trade - anything to see that go - so it fits our needs at the present time. My ideal would be a '94-95 6 spd. coupe over the GS.

I've been following your posts and your new purchase on both forums - congratulations! The GS is definitely a fine ride for a large car and about the only choice for a manual these days.

Hello,
I've also got the same problem with lights on my 88 coupe.
Half the lights don't work such as on the radio, the Temperature control and indicators on the dash, does anyone know if this is a problem with the fuze box, I really don't think the lights have burned out as my friend actually bought replacement bulbs for his Accord and it made no diference.

Also how the hell can I sort it out, simply by replasing fuses?

THis is a another classic Honda problem and it's sad to see the '92 L coupe has also inherrited the electrics.

Aw well, you've got to pay for luxury I suppose, any help would be greatly appreciated.

I was wondering how to change the lights just because I want to do it for looks. I want to make all my lights red to go with my red exterior, plus I figured that it would be good at night since red is good for nightvision. What do you guys think.

Oh nice! that was my 100th post, look whose a senior member now! :cool: hehe

Congratulations on your 100th post SpeedDemon.

You are going to have to get a manual and follow the instructions to remove theinstrument cluster to replace the bulbs and clean the contacts at the back of the cluster.... There are also warnings about the air bags...

It says...
Disconnect negative battery post.
Remove steering wheel.
Remove upper and lower steering column covers.
Remove instrument cluster bezel.
Remove instrument cluster screws.
Pull the cluster out, unplug the wiring connection and speedo cable (if applicable)
replace bulbs.
Install is reverse....

The problem some of you are having (half the cluster working, half not, is probably from dirty contacts at the back... Try cleaning them carefully... A good Staedtler eraser is best for cleaning electronic connections....

Good luck

pipes_0 : If your lights still work but are not bright enough, do you know about the brightness adjustment knob for instrument cluster?
