Question about 2000 Honda Accord

1 Answer

2000 accord alternator

My car wouldn't start, it would almost turn over, it wasn't a dead battery. Replaced the ACG fuse, it started. The fuse wasn't blown though. It happened again, did the same thing. Fuse wasn't blown. Both times it happened, it was on a really hot day. Could it be the fuse box is just over heating? And why? The alternator?

You are just guessing, good luck there are 3000 parts in the car.
first off , you did post year,(goog), and accord but not the sub models
23 total, EX.LX.DX. and others.
you did not post the country you are in or the engine type opted
for your when sold new.
world wide, they had (wiki lists them all) engines.......
1.8 L F18B I4 (CD3)
2.0 L F20B I4 (CD4)
2.0 L F20B3 I4 (CD9)
2.2 L F22A3 I4 (CD2)
2.2 L F22B I4 (CD5, CD7)
2.2 L F22B1 I4 (CD5, CD7)
2.2 L F22B2 I4 (CD5, CD7)
2.2 L H22A I4 (CD6, CD8, CF2) 2.7 L C27A4 V6 (CE6)
your car has one of these.
USA:?
2.3L I4 VTEC
or the
3.0L J30A1 V6 200 hp (150 kW)

now back to those symptoms. (no out door temperatures stated, -50F Alaska or 80F Key West?)
1: wont start. (50 causes there are) less than 3000 ... for sure...
2: but you said the cranking was slow and in same breath, battery is not weak, this is key ,and contradictory.
a: if battery stays at 10v cranking its not week but if less IT IS.
b: if battery was good, and crank rpm below 250rpm then there are
other reasons, weak starter, one cylinder in engine, flooded with water. or engine seizures.... bad starter, etc.

sadly you did not try a JUMPER cable jump start to prove
the battery is car is good or bad. off a running other good car.
if it started ok, that is cranked ok we would know your battery
is bad or only just discharged.
and if it cranked ok wed know the engine was not seized and the starter is in fact good. all that from just a jump, amazing huh?

if you can get past robust cranking we can work no starts.
no starts are a total different thing,
Good engine, good EFI (and spark)

cranking is a unique system on the car, and most be dealt with at its own level.
but do tell us what you are driving, for better answers
the above is just basics.

SOURCE: 91 honda accord "S" light no start

Honda has a long history of ignition distributor issues, heat play a major role in these delecate components, in older vehicles they get hot and the circuitry inside failes and after a wait period the vehicle will start again this happens to many cars, nissan, older Gm ,ford, Replacing the distributor has solved this problem for many honda owners and I believe you e also having this very same problem.
If this information is helpful to you please give me a fixya rating and if you find you need additional help do not hesitate to contat me i will do all I can to help.

SOURCE: 1995 honda accord won't start

Sounds either like the solenoid on the starter is bad or the starter its self.First try turning on your head lights and then trying to start it.If it starts then you have some bad connections either on the battery or the starter. next if that doesnt work Try hitting the starter with a hammer while someone else cranks it.If it starts then the starter is bad..

SOURCE: Charging problem.. Wont charge battery

The instructions for installing a new alternator usually read to fully charge the battery (12.3 - 12.8 volt range). Otherwise, the alternator will be damaged when it initializes. I have seen some extreme damage result from installing a new alternator with a low-charge battery. The torque required to turn an alternator when damaged in this scenario is unbelieveable!

SOURCE: cant find radio fuse

I'm sorry if this sounds a little too vague, but when the exact same thing happened to our Accord, my husband handled it and I wasn't really involved. Someplace you should have a card (It's either in with your papers if you bought the car new or if you bought it used, hopefully the last owners left in the glovebox or ? .) that has a 'security code' on it for 'resetting' the radio, etc. (There's some sort of an auto-shut-off in case someone is trying to steal your radio, etc..). When you follow the directions on the card and punch-in the numbers, it automatically resets and the radio and lighter* come back on (*BTW, I'm not sure if our lighter ever went out...??). If you can't find the card, then you'll have to go into a Honda dealership (They will NOT give out the # over the phone!) and by using your VIN they can look-up your #, although I don't know if they charge for this service or not. Hope this is of some help to you! BEST OF LUCK!

Where is the Alternator fuse on my 1999 Cougar v6 2.5l?


its built into the alternator. have you checked the voltages on the battery before starting the vehicle, then checking the voltage with the engine running, with engine running it should be around 14 volts with out engine running it should be about 12.06 v or higher. anything 12.04 v or lower there is a problem with the battery or there is a short somewhere and thats draining the battery.

Alternator not charging the battery, keeps stalling and/or not starting


Your battery is discharging because you have a circuit drawing power when ignition is off. You have to identify the line by hooking up an ammeter to the battery and with the ignition switch off, start removing fuses till the draw goes down. Once you locate the offending circuit, you need to check all of the wiring and items on that load.

Replacing the fuse the first time was the right move, becuase it could have been a fluke that it blew. Replacing it again and again was not! You should have found out EVERYTHING that the #2 fuse controlled and verified that the components weren't pulling excessive amperage (shorted condition). By replacing the fuse over and over, you might have made the problem worse by subjecting good components to something that was shorted.

BTW next time pick the oldest guy at autozone to help you, if the counter help knew their stuff they would have told you the same thing I just did!

My Honda Accord 1995 will not start. One day the engine decided to only sluggishly turn (wouldn't crank) - then suddenly took off, turned over quickly and started straight away. I charged the...


When the alternator doesn't supply current, the battery light on the dash would light up. (assuming the battery lightbulb is working) Next would be to doubt the voltage regulator not doing a proper job, but usually its either dead or working.

Ghost consumers can be tracked when the engine is off and removing / attaching the battery lead causes quite a bit of spark. Measure the Amps with a multimeter when turned off. When it's in the 2 Amps and upwards region - remove one fuse group after the other to see where most of it goes. Then go through all the separate consumers in that group.

If it's a low current preferably below the 1 Amp - the battery might not be as healthy anymore as suspected.
