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.

99 accord stalls turn off car wait minute it starts back up no problem


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

Ignition and Engine management light


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.

1997 Honda Accord EX wont start then will start


Most of these Accords had two recalls pertaining to the ingnition switch. There is an interlock issue, and an electrical portion of the ignition switch recall. I would start by replacing the electrical portion of the ignition switch as this will most times fix this issue. The clicking noise may indicate an issue with the starter however. Would advise having a starting and charging system test at a professional repair facility to check the starter, but the ignition issue would be where i would start.
