My Car Will Not turn Over

Hi...I have a 91' Honda Accord Lx 4 dr...and One day I left my headlights on. the battery died. I went to crank my car up serval times and everytime I went to crank it ...I became more dead and more dead. Then finally will I crank it nothing but my instrument lights on my dash are on...everything still lights up! I put the key in and turn it all the way back and it will let me, but it won't start. All the while, my headlights and tailights are just blinking...There is also a little red button that flashes right beside the cruise button located by the steering wheel. It flashes whenever we hook the battery cable back up, which is fully charged. My car was completely fine before I left those headlights on for 3 hours becuz I had class...anybody know what this problem could be and how do I fix it?

Sounds like you just need a jump. if that doesnt work and the battery is fully charged then you need to disconnect the wires from the battery and clean the cable hookups and the battery terminals. You can go to a auto parts store and get a terminal wire brush cleaner. Wire brush the terminals and the hookup till all the corrosion is off and then put some vasaline on the terminals and hookups to prevent corrosion later. Hook you battery back up and see if it will start.

    That light might be an old alarm system. if what i told you doesnt workyou might have someone look to see if the car has an old alam system that might have shorted out somehow and now isnt letting you start your car because of an anti theft system

Car would start sometimes and sometimes would not. now it will not start at all,there is no crank but there is a clicking, lights on dash n stereo etc. works.Two days before there was oil in the spark


First thing you need to know is if the starter has voltage, and if the engine crankshaft can turn. If the starter has voltage and a good ground, the battery is fully charged, and the crank can be turned by moving the alternator belt, the starter may have died.
If the oil was on the outside of the spark plugs your valve cover seals may be leaking.

Engine won't start. Dash lights flash rapidly when key turned.


the battery says 12 volts but may be dropping to 4 or 5 under a load...i would suggest jumpstarting the car and see what happens.the battery should read in the high 12 volts and not less than 9.5 under cranking. the dash lights go out on your car when starting,and the alarm will go off ,and disable the ignition if the voltage is too low in cranking the car because the computer will shut it down and activate the anti theft.....check your battery posts are tight. best of luck

91 Accord LX 2 dr 4 cyl just put new battery with 5oo cold cranking amps-NO Start! Owner said car has had perpetual problems holding a charge and starting! About 3mo ago Owner charged the old Die hard...


If you manage to get it started, check the alternator output...I'm betting it is bad. Should be making no less than 12.5 with accessories all on, 13.5 to 14 with just engine running. Bad alt can drain battery even when off depending what failed inside it. Towing with a chain is not really a good idea. the cross pin in those differentials are not very good and can fail.
