Question about 1995 Honda Accord

1 Answer

Cranks but not starting

I think this may be an alternator issue, I haven't done much troubleshooting yet as I am thinking about buying this car, the symptoms (I am told) are as follows: 2 batteries has been discharged, has spark, fuel & compression, and cranks but will not start when battery is fully charged or using jumper cables. I have been told that after a period of time with a bad alternator, this era of Honda's will not start. Is this accurate and this would be my first step in troubleshooting?

If this vehicle has fuel spark and compression its supposed to START. That everything it need to start, Something about that doesn't sound right, Did anyone do a timing belt lately??? If you have spark and compression and gas this vehicle should run. Check and make sure then get back to me. Good luck and thanks for using FIX YA

What causes my car to only start when I stop cranking the starter?


Check battery voltage when cranking the engine. It could be below 9 volts. It sounds like the voltage is jumping up when you stop cranking the engine.

do a proper diagnosis. You may have to methodically troubleshoot the issue. Now that everything has been adjusted and swapped, you may have to redo some of the work correctly to eliminate new problems. Newer cars are computer controlled and have many sensors that need to all work in order for the engine to run.

How to replace ecm on oldsmobile alero


Car not starting or turning over indicates towards multiple possibilities. It can be issue with battery or weak battery. But if battery checks out ok, then it can be starter issue or faulty alternator or problem with low fuel pressure or no spark at spark plugs due to dirty spark plugs or faulty ignition coil or injectors getting cracked or dirty and needs to be cleaned.


To confirm the problem, the basic troubleshooting is required.

2008 veracruz alternator keeps dying


I would think after the second alternator they would start looking for the real problem.
Unless the extended warranty does not pay for diagnostic time.
You may have to take it to a shop that focuses on electrical systems to find the real issue. Or pay the dealer to troubleshoot it.

Charge up the battery so you can get the car started.Buy or borrow an electrical meter that will read volts DC. Start the car and read the voltage at the battery,you are now reading the alternator output, it MUST be over 12 volts and should be between 13.2 to 14.4 volts to charge the battery properly.If its not putting that out then I think its safe to say your alternator needs to be replaced.If it reads in that range then I would have the battery LOAD TESTED if that hasn't been done before.Just because it takes a charge doesn't mean it will hold a charge.A load test will rule this out. Failing this I think you need to take the car into a garage to have it checked over because if its not the above it could be electrical in nature and needs a mechanic to look at it. I'll keep my fingers crossed for you.Good luck

I think the starter is going . The car does not turn over and crank like it should it starts to crank then it sounds like a wining noise


You say that the car will only turn over a little buit but not start. Is the car turning over and slowly dying out to nothing or is it just turning over and not starting?

Will not start


It sounds like you replaced the alternator because it was not charging the battery.
(Although no alternator can charge a shorted battery).

So now after replacing the alternator, the battery is still dead and can't be expected to charge until the engine runs for awhile. Well....the car starts and cranks from only the battery, not the alternator.

You could jump start the car with jumper cables from another vehicle to give the alternator a chance to do its job.

I suggest charging the battery from a stand-alone battery charger (about $50 any auto parts store, etc ).

You have not said anything yet that verifies that you have tested the battery.
If your battery is more than 2 or 3 years old, you may want to replace it.
They typically don't last much longer than that.

(By the way, I've never heard of a "crank sensor")
