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

How do I remove the distributor rotor on my 1996 Honda Accord?


Hello,

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.

Take care.

Need codes for stereo in order to turn on radio


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.
