Best Answer

I had the same problem with a Honda Accord. The car would start, however, as soon as I let go of the key the car would die. My problem turned out to be a bad ignition switch (you know, where the key goes in). I replaced the switch and all has been fine ever since. Try this. Start the car and instead of letting go of the key, turn the key slightly to stop engagement of the starter. Do not let the ignition switch turn completely back as if you had let go. Does the car still run when holding the switch? I drove my Honda 30 miles holding the ignition switch in place. Boy, did my wrist hurt. Good luck!
