Hello everyone, I recently obtained a 1995 Acura Integra and I have noticed a few issues with it and I'm not sure what could be the problem. the first one is there's a section where the stock air filter used to be that has some empty connector ends. the previous owner put in a cold air intake system.

The 2nd thing I noticed is that the check engine light is on and Idk how to check the code since it appears to be an obd1 and I don't have a way to read those as I have a FIXD OBD2 reader.

The third thing I have noticed is that the engine temp gauge does not appear to work. I left it running for about 10-15 minutes on a day when it's about 65* outside and it didn't move at all. As I was typing this out I went out and took a picture of the loose end connectors and decided to check the engine bay fuse box. There appears to be a few blown fuses in there so I am going to try replacing the blown fuses and see if that changes anything.

4th thing is the radio has no power. not sure if that has something to do with the blown fuses I found in the engine bay.

TIA for any help on the above concerns.

Hey @dreadmyst06 welcome to the forum! Congrats on your 1995 Integra!

With the temperature gauge have you checked to see if the thermostat is ok?

For scanning the engine codes there are OBD1 to OBD2 adaptors you can get that are handy.

Thank you, since the gauge wasn't moving at all even after 15 minutes of idle I think the coolant temp sensor has failed so I just bought a new sensor and a new thermostat as well. figured while in under the hood in that area might as well change it out too lol. Just ordered that tool you linked. Might wait to install the parts I bought until after I use the reader to see what code(s) it's reporting.

Also, the previous owner(s) were an idiot for something they did. the fuse I found that was blown had thin wire wrapped around the bottom part to "fix" the circuit...

that part has no way to use the reader I have so I am doing it the old obd1 way of jumping the circuit for a flashing check engine code and its reporting EC 41. EC 41 is a bad o2 sensor so I'm not too concerned with it as it will decrease the mpg a little.

Force reved the engine to try and make the gauge move and it moved this time so I don't think I need to install any temperature control parts but discovered one of the coolant hoses has a leak so ill need to replace that lol. :)

Fingers crossed that the gauge doesn't bother you anyone. Same thing with replacing that coolant hose.
