Check the ignition switch and the coil resistor if the Honda has one. When the starter is engaged there is a direct connection to the coil. The intention is to give the coil a little more voltage when the starter is engaged. If the ignition switch isn't connecting properly you won't run when you release the starter. If your vehicle uses a coil resistor you might get the same results. That's just a couple possibilities, good luck.
I suspect a bad distributor. Honda distributors have been known to fail.
check to see if your car has had the ignition switch recall completed
A common issue with the 1999 Honda Accord is a faulty main furl relay. ?æWhen the temperature increases the circuit board flexes and breaks, replace this relay and problem should be solved.
cause it is broke
This sounds like a bad ECU. Has it ever been replaced?
get another friend to look at it since cars are like computers you have to actually be there to fix them.
cause if its idling at zero rpm the motor is off ...
The most common cause would be lack of fuel. But without having more information that is just a guess.
Since the dashboard lights are flickering, it sounds like a possible wiring problem. Check all of the main wires from the battery to start with, then check the fuse box for any loose wiring.
Does it have Oil Pressure while cranking--some vehicles use a safety control that shuts off fuel supply if no oil pressure exists
Check brake fluid level in master cylinder when cold (fluid expands when heated) Make sure parking brake is fully released
Your 1991 4.3 S10 starts for about 3 seconds then shuts down because it is faulty. Take it to mechanic to have it checked.
My girlfriends 97 was doing the same thing....it turned out to be the ignition switch.It started to stall intermittently (once every couple days)then yesterday it would not run at all unless you held the key in start position. Take a test drive and giggle the key to see if it shuts of.
Only if you shut it off. :)
when eng shuts down, you lose all power assist: brakes stearing......the cause could be sevral things? i found the ignitor modual (car quest, napa) in the distributor goes bad also the main relay....
1991 mitsubishi eclipse 2.0L starts 2 to 3 seconds later shuts off
try checking your catalyctic converter
96 olds 88 runs for 20-30minutes shuts off wait 10 minutes starts up
If it starts at all I'd say it isn't the key, check the MAF sensor.
Duke's. It shuts down and he starts going to McGinty's (sp?)
The alternator is most likely the problem
A car that shuts off when the turn signal is used indicates a major short in the electrical system. When the turn signal is used, it cause a massive draw on the power and shuts it down.
My car starts but it shuts off it says ck engine
The starts and pressure drop start it again and it shuts off again
computer doesn't meet the requirements.
