Sounds like an ignition switch failure(i just worked on a 2000 accord with the same problem). The metal contacts within the ignition switch that provide power to vital electrical components are worn. This may cause your vehicle to stall while driving, and progress in hotter weather. Try shaking your Key while the engine is on and the vehicle is parked(usually it shuts off)....You may notice the speedometer to drop to zero when your vehicle stalls while moving. Replace the switch they range from $49-$95 from Advance auto or Autozone or call your local honda dealer (there is a recall on this and over 1.3 million vehicles are affected from years 97-02) Hopefully this helps!!

My 1999 toyota camry le won't start. it has been going downhill for some time. I have had to turn the key up to 50 or 60 times and then it suddenly starts right up. Now it won't start at all. It seems...

If the colder weather is affecting the problem I am suspecting the starter itself.
The brushes on the starter armature are likely worn and making intermittent contact.
And because it has gotten progressively worse would also indicate the progressive brush wear.
The solenoid is part of the starter and will come as an assembly.
The vehicle is over 10 years old and would be due for a starter at this time.
Thank you for using FixYa.

99 dodge caravan when driving just stops,will start then once driving will stop .what is it

Although it could be several different things it has the sound of a MAP sensor. Does it ever **** or miss sometimes when you are driving? Does it do it frequently? Has it progressively gotten worse? There are several possibilities, but if it runs fine part or most of the time and stalls for no reason - then restarts - have the MAP sensor checked. I have seen that kind of problem incorrectly diagnosed as a TPS (Throttle Position Sensor) but if it accelerates smoothly it is not likely that.

My mercedes e300 (1989) starts and runs ok but then cuts out.

I had a similar problem with my 1986 300e , which got progressively worse until the car was no longer driveable, I changed out the fuel pump relay and the problem went away.

Starter replacement?

If the car dosent sound like its turning over and only giving clicking sounds, than most likely the battery needs to be charged.
