there should be and interlocking switch on the break pedal telling the vehicle that the brake isn't on, which will not allow the vehicle to go into gear. check to see if your brake lights are working. if they are not, the switch is bad. needs to be changed.

If the ignition switch is bad will the car still crank the car is 1998 Honda accord?

The ignition switch in my wife's 98 accord went bad a few month ago. The car would randomly shut off while driving, then it wouldn't start back up for another 15 mins or so. It would crank, but not start. It's an automatic. To diagnose that the ignition switch was bad, I had the car in gear (D), turned the key to the "start" position. The car is not going to start until I put it into neutral or park. Then I'd slip the leaver into neutral, the motor would crank and start up, then I'd slip the leaver back into Drive (so the starter motor would stop).

Why might a 92 Accord EX five speed intermittently crank but not start when it usually starts flawlessly The last time this happened it still wouldn't start when the clutch was popped?

the starter might not be engaging properly. it might need to be replaced. My 92 Accord drive me bananas with this problem - turns out it was the ignition coil. The 1992 models had a recall for a bad distributor also, check for excessive distributor shaft play. Mine would not start in cold weather or wet weather, at other times it was fine. Good Luck. .-=gp=-.
