1993 Honda Accord Wagon (Won't Start) New Battery & Starter

There is no power & the battery won't charge. The battery and starter were put in after the battery would die after not being driven for a few days. The alternator checked out fine. Again, after a few days of not being driven, it won't start. At least before we could charge the battery.

This is my mother's car, and only has 45,000 miles (she's the original owner).

Ideas?

First of all, disconnect the negative cable from the battery and charge the battery up to a full charge. When that is done, check the battery voltage with a volt meter; you should see about 12.5 to 13.5 volts DC. Next, reconnect the negative battery cable and make sure all cables and connections are clean and tight at the battery and the starter. Start the car and check the voltage at the battery again with the car running. You should see about 13 to 14.5 volts DC which confirms that the alternator is doing it's job.
Next, check to see if your brake lights are on when no one is pushing on the brake. If they are on, then that is what's draining your battery.
If that is not the problem and your car battery continues to go dead after a couple of days of sitting, you have some sort of "parasitic load". You will probably need an automotive electrical expert to find the parasitic load.
If you find that the brake lights are on when no one is pushing on the brake, you most likely have a little plastic piece broken that mounts near the top of the brake pedal shaft. I believe it is called a "brake pedal stopper" and it is supposed to push against the brake light switch when there is no pressure applied to the brake pedal. When it breaks, you should find the remnants on the driver's floor area. You can get a new one from the dealer for a couple of bucks. You may want to use a flashlight to check things out near the top of the brake pedal shaft to see where the brake light switch is supposed to be pushed by the "stopper".
I hope this helps.
Good luck, Mark

2001 jaguar s-type won't crank battery new and charged. Turn the ignition car won't make a sound


many things will cause no start problems could have faulty ignition switch.use test light see if power going to starter if not check ignition fuse to starter.if power going to starter, more likely starter solenoid or starter faulty.if ignition fuse okay and starter and solenoid okay still no start problem could be in the ignition switch or inhibitor switch faulty.code scan for faulty theft security system which will also cause no start conditions.

My 2004 Honda Pilot ran fine then a hour later won't start. At first thought battery so we charged up usig one of those chargers you plug in. Lights flicker, and clicking sounds but won't turn


Check batry terminals are secure & free from corosion, check security of earth strap to engine & main power wire on starter, if ok have the batry load tested to ensure it can perform under load as the starter needs a lot of current. Have you tried a jump start?

I have a 1997 Honda Accord ... the battery is okay ... it won't click or turn over ... the Hazard Lights are on continuously ... the car will start with a rolling start (it is a manual transmission)...


Hi, have you tried to bypass the interlock switch on the clutch pedal arm? Just ground the blue wire. also check the 50 amp fuse #42. if not that, the starter relay may be bad or possibly the starter itself. To check the starter, please read my post here: http://www1.fixya.com/cars/r6222268-engine_doesnt_crank_turn_over

Hello. My 1997 Chevy Tahoe refuses to start. The problems began with a bad fuel pump. I changed. It worked. The fuel pump died again. I changed it again and it has been working. I parked it for two weeks....


Now you have a good battery & a starter that turns over the motor

Have you cycled the key on & off with a fuel pressure gauge on the
fuel rail?

Do you have a fuel filter that isn't over 3 or 4 years old?

Have you checked for spark while cranking ? Use an old plug on the wires,
if you have ignition wires,don't ground the wire without resistance

If you removed the ducting & MAF Sensor it won't start

Tell us what you checked & exactly how that was done.
