Question about 1991 Honda Accord

Runs well, then suddenly starts jumping, the "S" light on dash comes on, still jumping, then just dies. Boost it off, same problem. "S" button comes on by itself. Kills the battery.

It is your transmission control unit (TCU) This is located under the passenger rug next to the main computer. I just purchased a reconditioned TCU for my 91 accord from an ebay seller called allcomputerresources. If he does not list a 91 accord TCU, then contact him to see if he can get one quickly. He will send it, and then you send the old one in as a core. My unit is running fine, and costs considerably less than from a dealer.

Car keeps dying

Try replacing your battery as it sounds like your battery is not holding charge. When you get a boost from other car your using the other cars power to start yours. It only takes a little power to light dash lights etc but takes a LOT of power to start motor.

Hi my battery in my 91 celica keeps dying but if u jump it it starts but it dies after a while and the dash lights brighten when i put the brake pedal on

It sounds like you have a bad engine or body ground. Check all of your ground circuits. The tail lamp circuits on Toyotas are "riveted" in place in the plastic housings. I have fixed many of them by drilling a small hole all the way through the housing and installing a small bolt and nut for the ground. (This is most likely what is causing your dash light problem)

For the stalling problem, you need to check your charging system. You should not have to jump start if your charging system is working. Be sure all connections are clean and tight.

First things first, check the battery and the alternator. See if the alternator is faulty or not.

That's not unusual with electrical parts. They can fail with no symptoms. And your symptoms say it is indeed a bad alternator.

Shorting wiring in dash

check along bottom edge of dash cover for screws, sometimes there are a few at the top as well...generally once they are removed the dash face will pop off with moderate pulling. Once off, you can access the light switch easily. (you may need to remove the lower cover to locate dash screws)

1994 BMW 318i A/C inop after jump start (& in dash computer dead)

look for the a/c relay located (likely) in the fuse panel in the engine compartment near the battery. if it's not there let me know and i'll find out which relay it is. incidentally there may be fuses blown as well and replacing them may bring back your dash computer as well... i believe there are also fuses/relays located in the trunk as well on BMW's.
