Question about Honda Cars & Trucks

I have had the same remote starter in my car for 8 years. It worked perfectly before but now if it is starting cold, it immediately stalls. The starter attempts 3 times and it starts then immediately stalls each time. I tried it after driving to work this morning and it seems when the car is warm it works fine. I had my spark plugs changed about 2 months ago and had to replace my ignition coils at the end of last year (right around 100,000 miles for each repair). My car is a 2007 Honda Fit. Please help, thanks! :o)

Have you had a battery test done? Sounds like a weak battery or dirty and loose battery connections. The cold weather doesn't help because it makes your engine oil thicker.

Testimonial: "Thanks! I have not. The battery is only about a year old but the connections are bad. The connectors that came with the car, even when they're as tight as they can go, are still very loose on the battery. Or is there a battery for the starter itself and maybe you're referring to that? The car starts normally when I use the keys to start it."

    Sounds like the car battery connections is the problem. The car starter does not have a separate battery.

SOURCE: Car will not start when cold on first try

its the passlock system. The passlock wire is tiny and fragile, and gets disrupted causing your car to think you are trying to steal it everytime you put your key in.

now you can search for this video on youtube, this is where i learned and ever since i did this i have had NO problem with my car starting for the past 5 months.

you need wire nuts, wire cutters, electrical tape, n socket wrench to take apart steering column

first, go to your fuses, find the airbag fuse and remove it just incase you snip the wrong wire. what you do is look below your steering wheel and take your steering column apart. there are a serious of wires electrical taped together that are plugged in. you peel all the electrical tape back exposing the wires, and you find the WHITE wire. its all white, no other color. This wire is for your Passlock system.... this is the wire that got faulty and is causing the car not to start. now what you do from here is kinda tricky, not too bad though.

Seclude the white wire from the rest, so that you are ready to make your cut. Now, what you do is start your car, leave it running, and while its running you cut the white wire in half. then after cutting the wire, turn your car off, and then turn it back on. it should start right up. Then just put wire nuts on the two ends, and electrical tape them back together

The point of doing this is, one is disables the passlock system completely, and two the reason why you do this while the car is running is because snipping the wire with the car running makes the car think that it got into an accident or something, and puts the BCM/car into a "Fail-safe" mode, making it start every single time no matter what.

i thought this sounded insane at first, but after searching for a couple of hours its the only answer that made sense. and now i am the happiest camper in the world as far as it starting

You have a bad camshaft sensor. It's located at the back of the driver side valve cover. Takes 20 minutes to replace. I had exact problem and this solved it.

SOURCE: 1966 Corvette Ignition, car stops running in 2-3 miles, just quit

The big red wire on the big connector on the firewall is the problem. You need to take it apart and clean the contacts. Another fix is to run the big red wire through the connector after you solder it together.

Remote starter only allows my starter to turn over twice; needs at least 3 with my key. How to adjust to have it starter run longer on remote?

I know you are looking to have the remote starter run a third time but I would say you need to look at your Fuel Pressure Regulator on the Scion. Sounds like it is not holding fuel pressure at the fuel rail and that is why it requires a third Crank

I had a new fuel pump put on my Dodge Pickup and a week later it stalled . I checked the injectors to see if they were getting fuel and it shot gas out like it had fuel but the pump they put on was defective it was pumping fuel but not enough to start it .
I would take a spray bottle and gas in it . Unhook your air filter and then squirt fuel into the intake . If it starts for a second you will then no within a shadow of a doubt that the fuel pump is not pumping enough fuel.
Also check to see if your in line fuel filter is clogged . I don't know what part of the country you are in but a cold climate can cause a dirty gas filter to gel and not allow enough fuel to get past.

Car Stall or won't start even after fuel filter and pump replaced

I am almost positive that the cause of the problem is with the remote start. After maket remote starts are not the best idea because they have to splice into the factory wiring and alot of times it has a bad effect on the car. you should definatly look into getting the company that put it in to fix the problem

You either have a bad remote starter, or the remote starter has caused the body computer to fail. Remove the remote starter completely from the car. See if the car starts normally. If not, the body computer has failed. This is a very expensive item, and have been found to malfunction due to remote starter electrical failures.
