President Obama’s Decision on Syria

President Obama’s Decision on Syria

Just now, President Obama laid out the case for a targeted military action against Syrian regime targets as a result of their use of chemical weapons that killed over one thousand people — including hundreds of children. The President also made clear that this would not be an open-ended intervention, and there will be with no American troops on the ground.

While the President was clear on the need for action, he announced he would seek Congressional authorization for the use of force.

Watch the President’s statement now in his own words:

2003 Honda Accord Brake and TCS ! Warning Sensor Lights On

Honda Accord Brake and TCS ! Warning Sensor Lights On

Have you had the lights on the dash of your Honda Accord 2003 or similar model go on all of a sudden.

There’s a few possible problems that could have occurred related to the brake master cylinder that may have failed.

There’s a sensor that attaches to the master cylinder that may have failed. In some cases you will read that if you disconnect the sensor the lights will turn off on the dash. This is only recommended if you are testing and not a long term solution, the sensor will alert you if the fluid level is low.

We have also read that if the system is flushed, that that sometimes helps get the sensor working again. Perhaps a bad connection on the sensor. There are others that cover the sensor with black tape, but I don’t know what that is about.

A new master cylinder sells for about $180 or so and you can find a rebuilt one for maybe $140 or less.



Chances are the brake fluid level switch inside the resevoir has stuck. I have replaced a few master cylinders for this, ( the resevoir is NOT sold seperately ). If you unplug the brake fluid level connector, see if the BRAKE light goes out. If it does, you have found the problem. I’m sure the TCS DTC is related to this.

Cleaning the resevoir with brake cleaner and putting new fluid back in

There is a dtc (data trouble code) in your abs/tcs system. It could have something to do with the at (auto trans)system. You have to have your local dealer scan it with their hds tablet, and probably charge you to do so.

Nazar says:

“We want to be the brand people think of to start and build their small businesses. Where do they really go now? People go to LegalZoom to incorporate, they go to some Quickbooks to set up their accounting and maybe they read Entrepreneur and Forbes to get some topical business info. But what is the one universal resource that gives them everything they could possibly need to run their businesses? That’s what we’re trying to build.”
