1990 HONDA ACCORD WON'T TURN OVER TO START BUT IT WILL ROLL START. I HAVE CHANGED THE ALTERNATOR AND TESTED THE IGNITION SWITCH STARTER RELAY SEEMS FINE CLUTCH SWITCH SEEMS FINE MAIN RELAY IS FINE


About the only thing you didn't mention was the starter itself. You could have it tested. But before that, try to see if you have power on the small wire to starter solenoid on the starter, when key is held in cranking position. Pull the small wire off and check for power with a multimeter or a testlight while someone holds the key in crank. This is the signal wire from ignition switch that closes the elec. contacts inside solenoid so the starter gets full power from the battery to spin. (This wire also is in the circuit with the clutch switch and the starter relay.) If you have power on this wire in crank, it is very likely the starter is bad. If there is no power, check that circuit out. It is losing power somewhere from switch to starter solenoid. Good luck.

91 accord starter has power even when the key is off


The big wire on the starter is constant power, The little wire goes from the ignition switch to the starter (switch wire). I would sugest the ignition switch is cactus (not the barel just the switch) either that or someone has patched a power circut into the switch wire. Such as instaling stereo or something. But I would think the switch is the problem

the clicking that you hear is coming from the starter relay. sounds like your ignition starter switch or ignition lock cylinder is bad.

I have a 91 accord coupe. I won't start. I checked my battery and it's holding 12 volts. All of the rest of my electrical work. I turned the headlights on and turned the key and the lights did no dim....


Check the starter relay for operation. It should be in the engine compartment fuse box. If the relay is good, you can make a jumper wire and connect directly from the battery positive terminal to the starter solenoid terminal--the single small wire going to the starter. If you get cranking, the starter soleniod is good and the problem is in the circuitry that includes the ignition switch and starter relay. If the solenoid still doesn't click, it's bad.

The ignition won't turn over


This could most certainly be cause be split/cracked tumblers within the switch or by another part of the key cylinder. It could be as easy as a fix as getting a new key cut by code. On your model car you should find a sticker within the glovebox or stamped on the glove box lock. Bring the code or complete lock to your nearest locksmith shop and I'm sure they can help.

I would suggest looking at the little things. Check your fuel filter, and clean your spark plugs. No Guarantee that this will work, but this is much cheaper than replacing something expensive that you don't need.
