Try checking the electrical part of your ignition switch it is located right there in the steering column and normally plugs into the back of the ignition cylinder (where your key goes in) i had a similar problem on my 91 civic except i had to hold the key in place or the car would not crank or it would shut off if i let go off the key after i replaced the electrical part of the ignition switch i never had another problem. good luck

Hi from uk not sure on your model but if your ignition has ballast resistor ie main ign circuit voltage for running is lower 9volt??? say but for a boost start 12 volts is applied when ignition key start position turning engine over ? ok so far ? your problem may be that the ballast (boost 12v ) circuit has failed this results in how when you have ign on it will start as you release starter and engine still has momentum? datsuns use to suffer with this type of ign but with the opposite effect ie car would fire/ attempt to start on key start but stopped when starter was released their ballast resisror was on n/s inner wing and looked rectangular porcelin block with a coiled resistor wire in side for reducing voltage these used to burn out check h/book on ign system ? hope this is of some help ?

The lights inside my car work, until I try to start the car, then nothing works and won't start.


If the lights come back on when you release the key, I would check for a dead cell in the battery and poor connections at the battery and starter.

92' honda accord lx when hot does not want to start


You need to repair or replace your car's main power relay. It is a known fault on those early 90's Accords. When it gets hot, it fails and won't supply power to the fuel pump or distributor. Have it replaced.

1992 honda accord wagon lx 4cyl. battery good all lights, radio work when i turn the key on but when i try to start nothing, no noise nothing, can u help?


It's probably the starter or cable to the starter. If you can get to it check it with a voltmeter while someone turns the key to engage the starter motor. If you have 12volts DC and it doesn't turn it is the starter.Good luck...
