Question about 1996 Honda Accord
For the past week there's been a little trouble. but I've had to give up a day of work today because I can't get the key to turn in the ignition switch, so I can't start the car. Please give me an idea so i can get it started and don't have to take the bus to work...and possibly have to walk home more than 10 miles in the dark.
If the key itself doesnt turn its not an alarm issue its the ignition switch itself u need to replace it, it is worn out

try pulling your negative terminal lose from the battery for a few minutes and allow the system to zero out then try it if tht don't work then visit your local honda dealership

All you need to do is push the Shifter in harder into park and the key will come right out.. I had this problem once too.. The car just doesn't know it's in park because you didn't push it in far enough.

Theres a transmission cooling sensor and somtimes the wire comes loose from other repairs being done around it. or its just out. its on the left side sitting on the tranny. THATS WHY your d4 light is blinking

it could be the main relay, its notorious for the 91-93 models, so it might be that, and its the same symptoms.
heres the forum on that problem. its a 92 accord, but it might help. goodluck

Try 'jiggling' the key while you hold it in the start position' this could be a failed ignition switch.
It could also be that the + terminal on the starter or starter solenoid may be corroded. Since the battery was just replaced, those terminals are probably clean enough but check the negative cable where it attaches to the chassis or block. If the connection is flaky here, enough current can often pass to allow lower current devices to operate but drop too much voltage if the starter is trying to operate. Starters require 100-200 amperes, many times higher than anything else in our vehicles and show up cruddy connections pretty quick.
