2001 Honda Accord Will not start do not think its the elec sys
2001 Honda Accord DX. manual windows and locks. I do have the Anti-theft stickers on the windows. Today I went out to it after I finished at the gym and upon turning the key - Nothing happened at all. The only things that will come on are the Doors/Brake Light indicator and the Dome light. I hear no clicking, nothing turning over, no fans whatsoever.
I tend to think that it is the Immobilizer somehow. I tried to jump it off and got nothing at all in the form of power. I'll be heading back soon to trouble shoot.

yes you should have 2 blinking red lights on when the car is off and locked.. the lights serve a purpose of only letting other people know that ur car and also the stereo has a theft device.. as for it not coming on anymore, take it back to honda. Try this link to get more details:

If you want to turn the lights off then look at this forum for similar advice.
Possible causes: The anti-theft lock cylinder isn't recognizing the chip in the key. The key is bad or the anti-theft module is bad. If you have multiple keys then you need to try them. If only one works then the other is bad and you need to get another one.
The other possibility is the lock cylinder is bad and some cars like the 1998 Honda accord had a recall on it. Check into this by calling the dealership.
One other possibility: When you insert the key and turn the ignition, the anti-theft reads the key. Normally, you will see a green key light (depending on the car) blinking and go out shortly after the car starts. This means it is working obviously.
If you see the green key light blink but your not getting any start, it may be that the Main Relay for the car is bad. This happened on my 1998 Honda Accord. It was an $80 relay that is under the steering column. You may have to get a repair manual in order to locate it. You will have to get a replacement from the dealership.
I would try the different keys first, then the relay, these are cheaper to try. The lock cylinder being replaced is the last thing as this is very expensive and the dealership will gladly do it even if its not broken because they often guess and do whatever the customer asks rather than actually do a good job. At least in my experience with San Antonio dealerships. Hope this helps. Cheers.
