I found a page that explains symptoms and fixes for your vehicle. It is not clear but it states "Once started the car won't stall. After the car runs for a couple minutes, the symptoms return after shutting off the engine." The diagnosis for this problem is the PGM-EFI Main Relay Assembly is faulty and needs to be replaced. I will attach the link to the page I speak of it gives a general idea of the location also.

SOURCE: 1997 Acura Cl will not start but everything else works

Try disconnecting the battery cable again, but leave it off for at least 10 minutes. That will reset the computer, not sure if it will help w/ theft system though. Good Luck, Also try locking and unlocking the driver door w/ the key (not a remote) this may work.

Starting issue... Ignition


Is this a no crank, no start issue? Or is it a crank, but no start issue? If no crank no start, when turning the ignition key to the start position, and you get no cranking, then you have a couple possibilities...
bad starter, bad solenoid at starter, or bad Battery connections.
It could even be a bad positive battery cable. Bad battery terminal connections, are the most common result of a no crank no start issue. Check the terminals, clean them, clean them, and did I say clean them?

check this... Turn the key to the on position just in front of the start position. Then turn the lights on, are your headlights on. If they are on, that means you' are getting power through the ignition system. So ignition switch is not problem.
There is also a circuit breaker in the under the dash fuse box. It runs your power for the ignition system. It's a small half inch by 1 inch? Silver block. Try replacing that?

How to disconnect anti theft


It is hard to give a definite answer because I don't know which and how many wires were damaged...Anti theft can be a real HEADACHE.....You can begin by disconnecting battery cables..Use your VIN number for parts,Get new ignition with a programmed factory key from dealer only.....They probably blew certain fuses and or relays when this happened...Or maybe not..Install new ignition connect battery cables..,turn switch on just to check for bad fuses and relays...Disconnect battery again...replace any fuses blown...Connect battery again...( Each time you disconnect battery it resets the computer system and should clear anti theft codes..)..make sure all doors are unlocked by using door remote key fob....Now see if vehicle will crank..If all is done correctly it should start...However I don't know how much damage was done.....It may possibly be too much work to totally disengage anti theft....You could start with removing all fuses and relays related to anti theft but disconnect battery before...I DO NOT RECOMMEND trying to disable the theft system.....You may create more headaches that you want.......Begin by trying what I described just to be safe...!!....

I think that you have a defective starter solenoid, this the part that is mounted to the top of the starter.

Battery good, cables good, all connections clean and tight, no corrosion on battery terminals?
Try to determine if click is from solenoid on the starter or starter relay. Turn the headlights on and watch them while someone turns the key to start. If they get dim, probably the starter-have it tested-even new ones are sometimes bad. If lights don't dim, you will need to check the start circuit. Check for power on the small wire to starter solenoid when key is held in start. If no power there, work back towards the ignition switch. Check the neutral safety switch-should have power in and power out when key held in crank. The ignition switch will have a start wire out of the switch going to the neutral safety switch. It should have power with key in start, the only time the start wire will have power.
Post back with what you find-good luck.

Battery died in a 1997 Honda Accord 4cyl. When I connected the cables on the new battery, it started all by itself. The switch was definately NOT on. That's the first thing I checked, plus, I had


If the engine started without the key in the ignition then the most likely cause would be a faulty ignition switch. Your Haynes or Chiltons manual for the car should include instructions for testing the switch. This would also explain why the battery went dead. It kept everything turned on when you pulled the key out.

How to change ignition switch


  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Remove the steering column shroud and lower the steering column.
  3. Disconnect the ignition switch electrical harness connector.
  4. Remove the 2 nuts retaining the ignition switch to the steering column housing.
  5. Lift the ignition switch upward to disengage the actuator rod from the switch and remove the switch.

To install:
When installing the ignition switch, both the locking mechanism at the top of the column and the switch itself must be in the LOCK position for correct adjustment. To hold the mechanical parts of the column in the LOCK position, move the shift lever into PARK (with automatic transmissions) or REVERSE (with manual transmissions), turn the key to the LOCK position, and remove the key. New replacement switches, when received, are already pinned in the LOCK position by a metal shipping pin inserted in a locking hole on the side of the switch.
  1. Engage the actuator rod in the ignition switch.
  2. Place the ignition switch on the steering column housing and loosely install the 2 retaining nuts.
  3. Move the switch up or down along the column to locate the mid-position of the actuator rod lash, then tighten the retaining nuts to 47-64 inch lbs. (5-7 Nm).
  4. Raise the steering column into position at instrument panel. Install steering column shroud.
  5. Connect the negative battery cable.
  6. Remove the locking pin, connect the negative battery cable, and verify that the engine will only crank in PARK and NEUTRAL . Also check to make certain that the start circuit cannot be actuated in the DRIVE and REVERSE positions.

Electric problem


seems like the start wire is being fed by 12v --check the start wire for shorting to a hot wire ,maybe the at the starter harness connector.With the start wire disconnected check voltage at the start wire end--should have no voltage.Good-luck

Hyundai Tiburon Won't Start


Possibly the alarm cut-off switch? or Ignition key switch (or wires) going bad?

But you mentioned you tried to jump start it and it did turn over?
IF so, you could have severe corrosion or loose connections of the battery cable both at the battery and at the termination points, such as ground and starter motor.
Check that the battery wires are tight and clean at the battery posts and at the other end.

Again the No lights suggests either the alarm cut-off, or an absolute disconnected battery cable.

Finally, it could be ignition fuse, Check fuses. Ignition key switch.

What makes this hard is that you suggest it would turn over with another battery connected. This makes no sense.

Good luck
