1998 honda accord when it turn my key nothing turns on.
Hey i bought a used accord recently and the wiring is horrible. There was a blue wire running from a grounded wire all the way to the ignition switch. today while working on the car that wire sparked and now my car, radio, and dashlights will all not turn on. when i turn the key in the ignition I get no response. my guess would be the ignition switch, but i wanted to get some feedback here first thx.

Only thing it could have been in the first place is the wire from the switch to the starter is disconnected from the starter. Even a new switch won't fix that. Just get under the car and plug the wire back onto the spade connector.
I have seen issues like this on other Honda's and the problem turned out to be the ignition starter switch. Do this, jumper power directly to the starter solenoid trigger wire and see if the engine cranks.
Your tempermental starting problem could be the park neutral safety switch . They get worn inside an cause this type problem . Next time it won't start place gear selector into neutral an see if it starts then . The cooling running problem is probably the cooling fan timer module . From the diagram it's hard to say which side the A/C condenser fan is on. The A/C fan has blue with yellow stripe wire in the connector along with a black one . I would also suggest you have a qualified repair shop do a voltage drop test on the starting circuit . How to voltage drop test starter motor circuit
Im not sure what kind of knowledge or tools you have you may want to try using basic trouble shooting skills and use a meter basic meter bought at any automotive store troubleshoot with meter in dc12volt rainge begin from fusebox area were you have voltage and work your way up the line until you do not have voltage basic troubleshooting.also there is what they refer to as a fusible link wich is embeded in the wiring .
it may simply be a bad body / loom earth or a chafed wire making contact with the bodyork. You never know, maybe its as simple as an underpowered fuse being used mistakenly. You`ll need to trace the wires directly or by using wiring diagrams for your vehicle.
EASY...Push in your reset knob for your trip/meter on your speedometer and turn your ignition on.Tha'ts all it takes....Note!! make sure you push it in with the ign..off! then turn it on....Good Luck!!
The wire under the hood is for the hood pin switch, this wire when grounded will prevent the remote starter from starting, for trouble shooting I would leave this unhooked and make sure it is not touching any metal, also try to remote start your car with the key in the ignition swich if it remote starts you have a transponder issue if not post me and we can go from there
For a 1992 Accord, it is a blue connector with two wires in it, located behind the plastic kick panel on the right side. Use a wire to short those two wires in the blue connector. Then turn the key switch ON but DO NOT start. Then observe the check engine light. It will flash the code(s).
