Try applying a none liquid graphite lubricant into the ignition key hole, work it into the key hole with the key, DO NOT use a liquid lubricant on ignition switches it can short out the ignition switch. engine management light? bring it to autozone or advance auto ask to use thier code reader plug it in and check to see if the car is throwing a code then go from there.

Maintenance required on dash board how can i reset it please help


    • 1

      Sit inside the driver's seat of the Honda Accord and close the driver's side door. Any interior lights on can prevent the maintenance required light from resetting properly on some year models.

    • 2

      Insert the key in the ignition.

    • 3

      Depress the odometer/trip button located beneath the odometer on the instrument panel. Hold the button down.

    • 4

      Turn the ignition key two clicks forward to the accessory power position. This is also known as the key-on/engine-off position.

    • 5

      Continue to hold down the odometer/trip button for up to 15 seconds until the maintenance required light goes out. On some Accord models, the maintenance required light may blink once before going out.

    • 6

      Release the odometer/trip button and then turn the ignition key to the off position.

    • 7

      Start the Honda Accord to ensure the maintenance required light is no longer illuminated on the instrument panel. If it still is, the reset procedure did not take and you'll need to repeat the procedure.

    Tip

    RESET THE CHECK ENGINE LIGHT ON THE 99 HONDA ACCORD


    THIS IS HOW YOU RESET THE CHECK ENGINE LIGHT ON THE 99 HONDA ACCORD. 1. With the Car Off, Press and hold down the Odometer Trip Reset Button. 2. While still pressing the Trip Reset Button, Turn the Ignition Key half way on where all your oil, check engine lights etc.. turn on. Don't turn it as far as you would to normally start the car. Wait a few seconds and the Check engine light will turn off. 3. Turn the key back to the Off position and you're done. What a scam Honda has with the BS Check Engine Light.

    All electronic accessories work when key is in


    test power at the starter's power wire. If there is voltage, replace starter. If there is no power, check fuses/relays, if those are fine, check ignition switch (there is a recall on this since 2002). Typical symtoms of ignition switch failure on these vehicles include: Some warning lights not lit when key is turned to ON (ABS, battery, check engine, oil light etc.), Intermitted hard start/No start, stalling while driving, intermitted guage failure. If it is an ignition switch failure, call your local honda dealer for possible free repair under the recall(have your VIN# at hand). hopefully this helps

    My accord dies while driving like an elec. problem ,then restarts sometimes after many trys .main relay just replaced.


    notice when this happens if : 1. Your speedometer and tach drop to zero while your vehicle is in motion. 2. Some warning lights not lit when the engine dies. If any of these happens, its your ignition switch. Try starting your vehicle in the park position and wiggle/shake the keys usually the car dies. The ignition switches on honda/acura vehicles from 97-02 encounter significant arch on its internal electrical contacts due defects. When this happens, power to vital engine/vehicle electrical components fluctuate or fail resulting in intermitted stalling and hard start. Typically this happens more often in hotter weather. There is a recall dated in 2002 owners were notified, but many vehicles were not repaired, call your local honda dealer or honda USA with your VIN# at hand for possible schedule for a free repair. If they will not repair, the part is usually $45-$95....Hopefully this helps...please rate...thanks

    My 2000 honda accord has a continuiing problem of not wanting to start after I travel somewhere and turn off the engine. It takes about 30-40 minutes for it to start again. Happens in hot weather.


    is the engine cranking and not starting? Or is there no crank? When this occurs check if some lights (on the instrument panel) aren't lit when the key is turned to the on position!! If there is unlit lights **** as engine, abs, airbag etc. Its your ignition switch!!(there is a TSB recall on 1997-2000 hondas. Check your local honda dealer for info on this. Ignition switch failure is common on honda vehicles and usually gets worst in warmer weather.
