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.

I have a 95 honda accord dx. When i put the key in and turn it nothing happens. All my dash lights come on but nothing trys trys turning over or anything. I was told by a handful of mechanics and people at...

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.

91 honda accord won't start sometimes-battery, a/c, starter?

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 .

My 7897 has no blue wire for the remote turn on lead, all I can find is the power antenna? What wire do I hook to the remote turn on to the amp?

You can hook it directly to the radio fuse. Find where your fuse is and put the wire directly beneath it and push the fuse in. Now turn on the car and your amp has power. Hope this helps.

MY 98 honda accord ac fuse keeps blowing. What's making it blow the fuse?

hey there,
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.

Remote starter

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).
