Question about 2000 Honda Accord
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.
2.3L I4 VTEC
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.

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.

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..

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!
