Re: honda accord 1996
If the positive terminal got hot there is an electrical problem. I believe that you have a problem with your starter the Bendix or the solenoid is stuck. I would recommend you have the starter checked or change. Also if there is a problem with the alternator if its damaged internally you would have the same problem. First check the positive battery cable as it leaves that battery and make sure that it is not exposed meaning the insulation is broken and its not touching the body or any-other metal part of the vehicle. Just take your time are trace the positive cable it will go to the starter and the alternator and the fuse boxes. Also try disconnecting the alt and then try to start the vehicle it can be at fault. Get back to me for more help. Good Luck

you might have disconnected a power wire on positive batt terminal it sometimes gets unplugged get positive battery wire from top and run all way down to see if all connections are plugged in going to starter
In order to get the set screw in a position so it can be easily removed,
you have to get the rotor to rotate. Act as if you are going to start
the car, but only hold the key in the start position for a split second.
The cars engine will turn over, and the rotor will rotate, hopefully to
where it is easier to get the screw out. If not, try again.
Some Honda radios will give you their serial number by turning key to on position then push 1 and 6 button at the same time then turn on radio. It should display the radio serial number. You will need to give that number to a Honda dealer service advisor to search for the radio code. Or let the dealer do it for you. Sometimes people will put the number in the glove box door or operators manual because everytime Batt. power is lost or disconnected,you have to enter the code to get the radio and nav to work.
YOUR ENGINE IS RUNNING HOT.IF FAN KEEP RUNNING WHEN ENGINE IS OFF.CHECK COOLANT MAKE SURE ITS NOT LOW. REPLACE THE THERMOSTAT AND RADIATOR PRESSURE CAP.YOUR RADIATOR CORE COULD BE BLOCKED AND THE RESTRICTED GRILLE FULL OF BEBRIS AND THE.ENGINE BLOCK COOLANT PASSAGES COULD BE BLOCKED OR IGNITION TIMING COULD BE OFF.ALL THESE PROBLEMS CAN CAUSE YOUR ENGINE TO OVER HEAT.
It will do this if the car is to hot when turned off.It will run for a few mins then stop.Just stand by the car when the fan is running after you have switched it off wait for about 2 mins then it should go off.good luck.
Just to hook up a volt meter,simply touch the positive(red) , to the post with a 10m nut & wire,on top. At the same time, touch the ground(black) lead to the negative battery terminal. You should read 13.5-14.7 volts.
