Question about 2001 Honda Accord

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.

Any suggestions are appreciated.

    It is the immobilizer, I have the 2001 ex and my car does the same thing. What I've learned is that the immobilizer is a three part system. The transponder (key) the antenna (which reads the key,a ring located around the ignition cylinder) and the computer. With mine i tap on the ring around the ignition with a little mallet or anything else thats handy until the key light turns on on the dash. I also hear a click in the dash when the key turns on. It doesn't work every time but after several attempts it works in the end. My problem with the immobilizer is I have a faulty antenna.

Anti theft light is blinking and car won't start or go into gear. How do I get the anti theft system to let me start the car? Where is the system located?

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.

My radio on my honda accord keeps showing code e, what does that mean?

Means that it is requesting the code (anti theft) to reactivate the radio. In all probability, the vehicle battery was disconnected and the anti theft tripped.
