Re: 98 honda accord
This was a recall on most accords. it is the ignition switch. dont wait to long it is dangerous my mom was having this problem in a 1998 accord and it got worse and started stalling at intersections. But it is a recall. depending on your VIN number they might do it for free. Call honda and verify. How bout a fix ya. good luck i hope you get it done for free. we had to pay :(

Ensure you're pushing the gear selector all the way forward....You may have to take it to a shop to have the ignition switch removed. Or if you have another key, just leave it in and use the other key to unlock the doors, etc....depends on what your budget allows. TD
hi, there maybe problem with the ignition, the heater trigger on the ignition may be a little loose thats why you have to shake it and comes to contact on a certain time. check the heater relays too for it maybe faulty already. hope this helps
have the ignition switch checked....When the vehicle stalls while in motion, does the speedometer go to zero?? Shake your key while the engine is started and in park position....See if it stalls?? If yes possible faulty switch!! The switch has been recalled by honda since 2002....The internal connection that provides power to vital electrical parts shorts or has excess wear due to poor design. In this case power fluctuates and the motor stalls and other electrical parts shut off intermittedly. Call your local honda dealer to check if your vehicle is part of the recall, they may need your vin#. Hopefully this helps
Try applying a none liquid graphite lubricant into the ignition key hole, work it into the key hole with the key, DO NOT use a liquid lubricant on ignition switches it can short out the ignition switch. engine management light? bring it to autozone or advance auto ask to use thier code reader plug it in and check to see if the car is throwing a code then go from there.
check your starter relay. if the starter passed the test at the shop check to see if you are getting signal to your solenoid on the starter it shoul be the little post when you turn the key to the crank position, check to see if you have power at the big post which comes from your battery, check your grounds. check your fuses see if you have a crank fuse or an ignition fuse.
Could be one of two things tumbler is warn or your shift lock is worn located in the automatic shifter you can use key to disengage it and try putting the car in neutral then starting it that will tell you if you need a new shift lock or bypass it or if you need a new tummbler.
Turn the intermittent wiper dial to middle setting. There should be an arrow on the ring that turns. Just turn it to the middle, then turn your ignition key on but do not start the vehicle. Turn the key off and then the locks and windows should work. This resets some kind of solenoid. I have had the same problem with my 98 accord from time to time.
