Question about 1999 Honda Accord
My friend has a used Accord, we tried to start the car and once you put the key in the ignition it first is hard to turn the key. By taking the key in and out, and working it, it may turn. Now the car may start or you just hear a click and nothing.She had the battery replaced about three weeks ago and the terminals are clean and tight. At first I thought of a starter but the ignition has me worried. Any clues? Thanks!
It could either be a BAD starter or a BAD ignition they both would have the same symptoms of a "CLICK" alone. I would most likely lean toward the ignition because the key is difficult to turn but its not all ways true that key is tight because the ignition is bad, although possible. It could just mean a bad ignition cylinder(just the key part why its tight) I want you to do a test for me. With clutch engaged turn key to start position and listen for click on starter in the hood, when trying to start. If you hear starter click then the ignition switch is good. (Before you do this make sure that battery is FULLY CHARGED).STARTER IS AT FAULT. IF no clicking is heard coming from starter check starter fuse and if its good YOU have a BAD ignition switch.
