    if at any point in the the check engine light came on there will be a service code stored( hard codes will leave the light on at all time intermittent codes will cause it to come on and go back off but a code will be stored regardless, unless you have since disconnected the battery) there will be an OBD2 port on the driver side under the dash, its kinda of a rounder rectangular port and ussually its blue. if your car will make it to a shucks/orielleys parts store they will let you use a scan tool to check the code. i would start there. it could be an ignition modual but its been my experience that when they go out they just go out, not work some of the time. codes and ignition aside you may have a clogged fuel filter or a pump thats on its way out. the only real way to test the pump is to hook up a pressure gauge to the service port and turn the ignition on see if your pressure is within the specified thresh hold. another way to get an idea is to have a buddy turn the ignition on while you stick your head down by the fuel tank(the pump is usually in the tank) and see if you can hear it humming, if it stutters and changes in tone randomly or you dont hear it at all then most likely the pump is the issue, but like i said the only for sure test is to use a gauge. you can test your filter simply by removing it and seeing if you can easily blow through it. some cars dont have an inline fuel filter just a sock that goes over the pickup in the gas tank (for example some years of jeep cherokees) so if you think it feels like.sounds like you motor is starving for gas start there but either way if your check engine light has ever come on there will be a code stored in your computer. so reading the code may give you an idea or it could be an unrelated seperate issue. for example a bad o2 sensor will throw a code but doesnt really affect how well the car runs, most typically you experience poor milage in that case. sorry it took me a while to get back to you. i was out fo town for a couple weeks. hope this helps

It may take some talking back and forth but i can help you fix this. does it seem like the engine stalls once its good and warmed up and wont start till its cooled down a bit? this is very common and its ussually caused by the coolant temp sender (not the one for the dash the one that runs you fuel and emissions) more or less it goes out and you car doesnt know its warmed up so it floods the motor out after a few miles because more or less the choke is stuck "on" . once the motor cools down it will typically start right back and and then repeat the symptom. ive seen other issues cause this but the coolant temp sender is very common and also a cheap fix ( just did one on a buick and the part cost 14 bucks and it took me about 15 minutes to replace). is the check engine or service engine soon light on or does it come on then go off?

SOURCE: 1991 honda accord "no spark"

There is a relay mounted way up under the dash on the driver side. It is about 1"x1"x2" and it says Mitsuba on it. This is the PGMFI relay, sometimes called the main relay or fuel injection relay. It is very likely the problem. You can buy another one, or there was a bulletin on how to repair it. You need to take it out, pop the cover off, and resolder the cracked solder joints on the pc board that the relays are mounted on. Really not that hard if you have a little soldering experience. If not, just buy another one, about 50 bucks.cb28323.jpg

This is something that you cannot afford to throw any more money at. Get a timing light to check to see if there is spark. Use a pressure guage to check fuel pump. Get bug lights to test injectors.

1990 HONDA ACCORD WON'T TURN OVER TO START BUT IT WILL ROLL START. I HAVE CHANGED THE ALTERNATOR AND TESTED THE IGNITION SWITCH STARTER RELAY SEEMS FINE CLUTCH SWITCH SEEMS FINE MAIN RELAY IS FINE


About the only thing you didn't mention was the starter itself. You could have it tested. But before that, try to see if you have power on the small wire to starter solenoid on the starter, when key is held in cranking position. Pull the small wire off and check for power with a multimeter or a testlight while someone holds the key in crank. This is the signal wire from ignition switch that closes the elec. contacts inside solenoid so the starter gets full power from the battery to spin. (This wire also is in the circuit with the clutch switch and the starter relay.) If you have power on this wire in crank, it is very likely the starter is bad. If there is no power, check that circuit out. It is losing power somewhere from switch to starter solenoid. Good luck.

98 Chevy Tahoe runs great, but from time to time will not turn over, I leave it for the day and it starts fine. Have changed fuel pump, distributor and cap, starter, battery, plugs and wires. No idea why...


When this happens check for power on the s terminal At the starter while someone holds the key in the crank position. I suspect a faulty ignition switch.

  1. Check the ignition switch condition and operation. The electrical contacts in the run position may be worn or damaged. Try restarting the engine with all electrical accessories in the off position. Sometimes turning the key on an off will help in emergency situations, however once the switch has shown signs of failure, it should be replaced as soon as possible.
  2. Check for loose, corroded, damaged or shorted wires for the ignition system and repair or replace.
  3. Check for manifold vacuum leaks or vacuum hose leakage and repair or replace parts as necessary.
  4. Measure the fuel pump delivery volume and pressure. Low fuel pump pressure can also be noticed as a lack of power when accelerating. Make sure the fuel pump lines are not restricted. The fuel pump output is not adjustable and requires fuel pump replacement to repair.
  5. Check the engine fuel and ignition management system. Inspect the sensor wiring and electrical connectors. A dirty, loose or damaged sensor or control module wire can simulate a failed component.
  6. Check the exhaust system for internal restrictions.

Try chaning the main relay. It is $60 at the dealer, cheaper on e-bay. There is also a way to repair the sodlering connection on it if you want to try and save some money. Check youtube for a video on how to rapir main relay on Honda's. Any questions, e-mail me at edwardmgomez@hotmail.com

Sounds like a poor connection between the ignition switch and the pcm. (or the ignition switch itself) Could also be a bad ground (fender ground) or ground at one of the pcm ground leads. You are going to have to check all connections to find this. (check voltages with a volt meter) Any corrosion found in any connection needs to be cleaned. In cranking that says that power is going to switch. The delay is likely caused by a connection not connecting 'till power can "burn through" the problem. Once power is turned off the cycle needs to be repeated. This can also happen within the computer if a board is corroded. that does not happen often so I would not consider it till other options have been exhausted. (don't forget there are wire connections for each ecm fuse as well)

2005 ignition switch


Good day;
The following is the removal of the switch
1. remove the steering column trim covers.
2. disconnect the ignition switch harness connector.
3. turn the switch to the run position

IMPORTANT THE IGNITION SWITCH MUST BE IN THE RUN POSITION DURING REMOVAL IN ORDER TO AVOID DAMAGE TO THE IGNITION SWITCH.

4. remove the switch screws
5. remove the ignition switch from the steering column

if the ignition switch is replaced and a learn procedure is not performed the engine will crank but not start or will start and stall immediately.

30 minute learn procedure
1. turn ON the ignition with the engine OFF
2. attempt to start the engine then release the key to ON. the vehicle will not start
3. observe the SECURITY telltale. after approx 10 min the telltale will turn OFF
4. turn OFF the ignition and wait 5 seconds
5 repeat steps 1-4 two more times for a total of 3 cycles (30 min) the vehicle is now ready to relearn the PASSLOCK sensor data code and or passwords on the next ignition switch transition from OFF to CRANK.

IMPORTANT: THE VEHICLE LEARNS THE PASSLOCK SENSOR DATA CODE AND OR PASSWORD ON THE NEXT IGNITION SWITCH TRANSITION FROM OFF TO CRANK YOU MUST TURN THE IGNITION OFF BEFORE ATTEMPTING TO START THE VEHICLE.

6.start the vehicle the vehicle has now learned the passlock and or password
7. if you have a scan tool clear any codes if needed or disconnect the battery for 30 sec. the history DTC will self clear after 100 ignition cycles.

hope this helps

Cheers

The stupid passlock!!!!


If you tried to hot wire the ignition, you may have shorted out the pass lock wire in the ignition switch. You may have to replace the ignition switch. Try the relearn process, it takes about 30 min to do. 30-Minute Learn Procedure 1. Turn ON the ignition, with the engine OFF. 2. Attempt to start the engine, then release the key to ON; the vehicle will not start. 3. Observe the SECURITY tell tale light. After approximately 10 minutes, the light will turn OFF. 4. Turn OFF the ignition switch, and wait 5 seconds. 5. Repeat steps 1 through 4 - two more times - for a total of 3 cycles of 10 minutes. 3x10 = 30 minutes. The vehicle is now ready to relearn the Passlock Sensor Data Code and/or passwords on the next ignition switch turn from OFF to CRANK. Important: Turn the Ignition Switch OFF. The vehicle learns the Passlock Sensor Data Code and/or password on the next ignition switch transition from OFF to CRANK. You must turn the ignition OFF before attempting to start the vehicle. 6. Start the engine. The vehicle has now learned the Passlock Sensor Data Code and/or password. 7. With a scan tool, clear any DTCs if needed. History DTCs will self clear after 100 ignition cycles. Without a scan tool you may have momentary starter interruptions while history clears itself. Good luck and hope this helps. Keep me posted, be glad to help.
