Question about 1993 Honda Accord

2 Answers

93 accord wont start. wont even turn over!

Ok first off I replaced the starter. I also have a brand new battery and a new clutch positioning censor or whatever its called that tells if you have clutch engaged. It started one day and drove fine then the next morning nothing. it will go to the acc. position and lights come on and when I turn to start some lights go out like it does when it starts but only sound I hear is a faint click under the dash on drivers side. I have the wiring harness disconnected from the ignition and I turn it with a small screwdriver and have to push start car. is there some fuse or something inbetween the ignition thing im turning and the starter that could be wrong??????????

This procedure usually works:

  • Check the battery cable connections:
Make sure the positive cable, makes a good connection at the battery and at the starter. Make sure the negative cable makes a good ground connection at the battery and (preferably) at the engine.
  • Check the battery the simple way, like this:
Turn on the headlights, then try to start the car.If the headlights do not dim or go out, then the battery is likely ok.
  • Check the starter and solenoid:
If the wiring looks ok, then look at the starter solenoid for a good connection, and proper voltage at the starter(10 volts minimum while cranking).
If the starter spins and no crank, the problem is most likely the Solenoid's bendix gear is stuck.
Have someone hit (not too hard) the starter while you try to start the car. This usually works by dislodging a stuck bendix gear.
  • Make a simple test of the alternator:
If you can, somehow get the engine running, measure the voltage at the battery. It should be at least 13.6 volts to properly charge the battery.

Starting solenoid bad?

SOURCE: I have a 2002 Honda

Ok so that wasn't it. Three days later problem came back. Replaced battery cables. Problem goes away for another few days. Came back again and found what I think is finally it. Engine Cut Out Relay in the power distribution box. (of note the expert told me there were no relays in the ignition system) Although the local auto parts store's computer said they did not carry this relay, I took it in anyway and they matched it up with one off the shelf. $7.50 and I am running good as new. Hope this helps some of the rest of you. Also, the wiring schematic in the back of the Haynes manual was also an invaluable assist on this one.

SOURCE: where is the starter relay on a 94 Honda Accord

Yes, it sounds like your solenoid is bad and staying engaged against the flywheel, you could do an amperage draw and a voltage drop test to find out for sure, but you will need an DVOM and a amp clamp. Or you could take it into an auto parts store and they will test it for free. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: Engine won't start. Dash lights flash rapidly when key turned.

the battery says 12 volts but may be dropping to 4 or 5 under a load...i would suggest jumpstarting the car and see what happens.the battery should read in the high 12 volts and not less than 9.5 under cranking. the dash lights go out on your car when starting,and the alarm will go off ,and disable the ignition if the voltage is too low in cranking the car because the computer will shut it down and activate the anti theft.....check your battery posts are tight. best of luck

Manual VW Passat 93 wont start


I had the same problem with my 93 Passat diesel, good lights and glow plugs but no effort to turn over. I could hear the relay kicking in the dash (by the drivers window.) I decided to cross the starter terminals and then discovered that the wire was corroded under the solenoid and into the body of the starter. I got a replacement starter and it rolls over fine. Now if I could get ti to pick up fuel... hahahaha

Yes you can replace the switch yourself, it would help to have a manual though. I have heard of this issue, but first verify that no crank signal is reaching the starter motor solenoid using a 12 volt test light while someone holds the key in the crank position, also if the car is a manual trans make sure the clutch switch is ok, it locks out the starter until the clutch is depressed. Remember a few minutes of simple tests can save buying expensive parts you don't need!
