Whenever u have problem with Honda, there are 3 items u should look into first: Ignition Coil, ICM and main relay.
If your car cranks and will not start period, and u have checked sparks and compression...etc, the chances are its either your ICM or Ignition Coil. If your Honda starts sometimes and dies sometimes and 'experts' keep telling u its your transmission, fuel pump, fuel filter, starter, distributor...etc, before u spend any money, you should takeout your Main Relay and check(very carefully) for hairline(extremely fine) crack(s) on the soldering. If u see something looks like a crack, then u have found the problem. Get a new relay or resolder it yourself.

For your power steering issue, if you have replace the power steering kits already, may be u still have air in the system and u have to burp your system by removing the power steering reservoir cap, turn the steering left and right to pump air out from the system. Good luck.

Where is the fuse for the gear shifter on a 1997 Honda Accord Station Wagon EX

First, what is exactly happening? as there is no fuse for Gear shifter.

Is the car not going out of park? If so, then check the Brake switch. Brake has to be depressed which operates the brake switch sending signal to the gear shifter to unlock so it can be shifted. If Brake switch is okay then only a mechanical obstruction is preventing the shifter operation. For this you will have to take of the cover on the gear shifter to see what is fouling.

I’m happy to assist further over the phone at

Your best bet is to go to a parts house and buy a rebuilt torque converter. Make sure you save the old one because they will likely require a core.

How do you remove a key from a Honday ignition

  • Ensure that the vehicle is off and in "Park" or "Neutral." If the vehicle is in gear or running, the key cannot be removed.
  • Place your left hand on the top of the steering wheel and place your right hand on the key.

    Wiggle the steering wheel left and right, and attempt to turn the key into a different position, such as the "Accessory" or "On" position. Continue until the key moves freely.

    Turn the key back to the "Off" position, then pull key out ignition

    I have a Honda 1998 V6. i just had a gear box change. now i am experiencing ignition key stuck problems that i never had. sometimes my key gets stuck and i simply push the stick to nuetral and park and it...

    There is a recall on 1998-2002 Accords regarding defective ignition key mechanicals. Try jiggling the transmission shifter on park, while trying to extract the key, to make sure the shifter sensor (park) is allowing the key to be retrieved. For what i have read, the recall failure works the other way, it allows the key to be taken out on any gear, engine on or off !!.

    I have a 98 Honda Accord my key is stuck in the ignition but the the car still start. I can not get the key out in suggestion

    Ensure you're pushing the gear selector all the way forward....You may have to take it to a shop to have the ignition switch removed. Or if you have another key, just leave it in and use the other key to unlock the doors, etc....depends on what your budget allows.
