How do i know if fuse panel fails

More likely if the engine cranks and does not fire, is that the Inertia sensor has activated and disconnected the power to the fuelpump. This has a reset button on it and will activate when it senses a bump. You can usually find it around the front floor kickpanel. Look on the Web for a photo of the part you are looking for.

If the engine does not turn over, check the brake pedal lever for a switch. This will get kicked by your feet and broken or knocked out of position. It is a lockout for your starter relay. It is to insure that your foot is on the BRAKE before letting the starter work. Check brakelights to see if they work.

Many of the newer cars you have to depress the BRAKe to over ride the tranny lockout .

Starter attempts to re-engage after already running

I agree with Ignition switch diagnosis. Another possibility is a short in the lockout for the gearshift and brake pedal lever. This is suppose to stop you from starting the vehicle unless your foot is on the brake pedal. These get smashed and it should not allow power to go to the starter relay, but if they do cross the circuit, it may provide power to the starter relay. You did not say if the starter tried to engage when you tried to shift from Park.

I think the Ignition switch is the most likely, but I wanted to mention the crushed lockout switch as a remote possibility.

My 1990 corolla wont start after I have driven it for a few hours

Some of the tests I can recommend for free require the car to be driven to Autozone, Advance, or Oreilys. You need to have the charging system and the battery checked. Then they can check the "draw" of the rebuilt starter for performance. Or have the starter removed and bench checked. It should have some type of warranty.

Now other problems can cause you to destroy a starter. One of them being a malfunctioning Alarm lockout. When the battery is low, a lockout may still reduce the voltage to the starter on purpose. This is a form of antitheft.

You need to explain to us if the engine was turning over before and if the engine tried to fire at all. Some heat related failures occur in the coil.

I hope my solution was helpful.

When I turn the key to my Honda HTR3009 nothing happens

First, you posted your riding mower under the heading of "cars and trucks". You might get a better answer if you post it in the correct category.

With all that said, are you sure you do not simply have a dead battery?
Are you getting battery power to the starter when the key is turned?

1994 nissan maxima - engine will not turn over, seems to be electrical as I did get it to start once , but when I turned it off it would not start again. checked all fuses and they are good. Could it be...

It is possible but unlikely, the ignition switch is pretty rugged and dosn't give much trouble.
Check the starter motor connections , try hot wireing direct from the positive terminal of your battery to the starter to ensure that the starter is not the problem.
If the starter is Ok investigate the shifter lockout that stops the car starting in gear, they sometimes get dirty or break.

I Have a 2000 Chevrolet Cavalier that someone replaced the starter. It wasn't installed correctly and I need to know what wires go where so that I can get it started. With a battery boost the car powers...

There is only one way to hook the starter up. You have a big wire and a small on or a plug in harness connector. If they were hooked up wrong you would have major electrical damage. I bet you have a igniton swith issue if the batterys test good or the starter relay in the fuse box is bad. Swap the relay with one of the other to see. Or its possible you have a security lockout because of a failed key tumbler.

Will not crank, battery is good, starter is good

Yes, there is a starter relay which is most likely the culprit.

Trace the red battery cable, you'll find the relay at the end of it. Disconnect the starter cable and the battery cable, but not the ignition switch leads, from the relay. Then test for continuity through the switch side of the relay when the ignition is turned to start.

If there is no continuity, the relay is bad.

More info, let me know.
