Question about 1998 Honda Passport
Problem is worse when car has been sitting overnight or the weather is cold. Engine attempts to turn over, but does not fire. I just had the starter replaced with a brand new unit, and the problem persists. Also cleaned out the air intake/throttle body, made sure the "butterfly" valve is working smoothly. Even pumping the accelerator while turning the key does not help. Have not tried depressing the accelerator continuously while trying to start engine.
Firstly have a load test done on the battery as an attempt to turn over indicates a faulty battery. Next as it is an EFI engine any pumping of the accelerator only adds to your frustration as it does nothing to the starting ability. What you need to do is have the fault codes read and fix what shows up as faulty

well the first part of your question i was all ready to tell you to put a new fuel pump in, now not so sure, there is a relay for fuel pump, can you hear pump cycle and relay click? relay under hood you will have to listen close they don't run long maybe a couple secounds, if you don't relay bad. if you do pump could be bad, do fuel pressure test pump could be weak. don't think sunroof and turn signals are related, but stranger things have happend.

Sounds like a fuse for the DC-DC convertor to battery circut or the DC-DC convertor. Check the fuses under the hood but DO NOT attempt to fix the convertor yourself because there are LETHAL amouts of voltage in the hybrid drive system.

have you check the ground wire from your negative wire to battery post? check to see the battery is strong. if it doesn't turn over the engine or crank the engine mean no good ground to the cables. if the car ran fine I dont understand why the car wont crank or turn the motor over it just quit. if the battery check out strong 12 V, starter serenoid may be faulty on your starter or it may be hot and will not turn starter over.

Another place to look is your IAC, or Idle air control valve. It is bolted to the back of the intake manifold, and can be removed and cleaned. It is usually the cause of most Honda Idle problems.
