Hi I am vortash it sounds to me that the ignition switch is not working check the connector plugs and the earth leads on the battery .. there is also usually two wires on a positive terminal of a battery one is for the starter direct and the other a smaller side attatched wire is for the utilities ( but not all cars have them check your manual ) see if yours is this type and check that wire connection . last but not least check all fuses .. under the hood and anywhere else that you may have a fuse box again check your manual ... hope this helps regards Vortash

Starting problems on a 1992 Honda accord ex. i have no dash lights power to everything else. just no start and no dash lights, the halo around the key comes on.

Hi, First check your battery connections (clean and tight) Second check battery for 12.5 VDC Use volt meter for this. Check and load test battery. If battery fails this test replace battery. Check fuses and relays. replace if necessary (bad) Hope that helps.
If you can not perform these test yourself. Take it to a mechanic.

I have a 1987 Honda accord lxi. Has power under the hood but I go to start it none at all no dash light no radio clock nothing. What could this be?

By "has power under the hood", what do you mean, exactly? It sounds to me very much like the battery is completely dead or else one of the battery cables has such a poor connection that no voltage is available to operate things.

My Honda Accord wont start even with a jump. The lights come on but wont turn over. No click, no sound, no nothing

IT's those short drives that burn down a battery! The starting of an engine requires mucho electric to get it running. The alternator then charges the battery, but slowly! If you also have the lights and stereo on it is even slower. Get the battery FULLY charged with a commercial battery charger. Then check to see if the alternator is charging up the battery after you start it. If not, replace the alternator. If the battery dies overnight or in a few days...replace the battery.

Replace speedometer cluster on my '95 Honda Accord DX

I would have the trans speed sensor checked before removing dash assembly. The speed sensor is an analog sensor that sends a signal to the dash. It is located near the trans output shaft attached to housing with a small bolt. It is gear driven and quite easy to get at. It is also subject to heat and road conditions, makeing this the prime culprit in speedo problems. Hope this helped. Moe

89 Honda Accord Heater doesn't blow air at all

sounds like the blower motor, Get a test light and hook it up to the wires going to the motor this will tell you if power is getting to the motor . Hopfully it is , Just pull the panel off on the pasangers side under the dash and you can see the motor . It's easy to change and should fix the problem. If you get no power it check for power at the switch on the dash . It could have gone bad !!
