SOURCE: Honda Accord steering vibration

this sounds like an issue with the power steering rack and pinion unit, poss one of the internal O ring seals leaks when cold, try using LUCAS oils power steering conditioner, it is the only one I know of that really works, also I would recommend you flush the power steering fluid before you add this product.

SOURCE: my 1997 honda accord wont start.....

Hi Matt

Follow the( + ) positive lead from the battery, to the starter, check the connections, if all OK, get someone to turn the ignition key to start, and give the starter a tap, on the selenoid, with a small hammer or a metal socket extension.

Good Luck !

Let me know the outcome !

Also a FixYa rating would be nice !

push key in turn on and off push key in work switch off and on .if dont release you probably going to have to take out the ignition switch. make sure your car is all the way in park.

SOURCE: I have a 2007 Honda Accord and the key is stuck in the ignition.

You need to push the car into Park harder and the key will pop right out :) even if it is off just push the gear in harder..

SOURCE: 2006 honda accord: key stuck in ACC position.

The same thing happened to my 2003 Honda Accord...took it to the dealership, and they had to replace my shift lever entirely. Something about the cable between the ignition and shift lever not being read correctly...(basically, my car is not reading that it's actually in park and therefore won't release the key)....

My 1996 honda accord wont start. Engine turns over but wont start up. had the problem yesterday hit the distupter with a hammer it started up after. today nothing

You might have a bad ignition coil or ICM both located inside the distributor. I'll just replace them both. I hope you didn't damage the distributor when you hit it with the hammer, it's about $200 part new. good luck

1996 Honda Accord will not start. After turning the ignition, I hear a single click then a high pitced buzz or whirl sound for as long as I have the ignition engaged. Already checked the fuses. Car is in...

either the starter gear is bad or there is a bad spot of gear on the flywheel. the strter will need to be removed and the starter gear/ flywhell inspected.

Automatic transmission won't reverse or goes into drive

If I understand your description and you can't get automatic trans shifter out of park:
ignition switch has a saftey feature to prevent you from shifting out of park unless key is turned on, I suspect your cable is broken, damaged or just not attached at the ignition switch end.  It's attached via cable that goes from ignition switch to shifter console.    
So normally you need key on and foot on brake to get out of park, there is a mechanism in shift console to prevent going into drive if conditions are not met, I think your problems lie here.
