I just did my nieces hondas ignition switch. If I held the key on in start mode the engine ran. When I released the key, to be on the run mode it died. Is this what yours does? If so call the auto parts store to make sure they have it. Its the switch the key contacts when you turn the key.I took 3 or 4 screws out to split the plastic thing that covers the switch.It has 2 kind of tricky screws holding it in and a wire pluged in it with like 6 or so wires on the plug. It was even a little tricky to get out after I disconnected it. Be patient.
I hope this helps you.

I was driving down the road and it just died and now it will not start


Check fuel pump fuse and then fuel pump relay if both are ok the fuel pump is bad. Make sure you check the power wire to the fuel pump for proper volts before you replace the pump.

05 ford five hundred wont turn over thinking its the fuel pump or maybe the relay


try banging on the fuel tank sometimes that could make the fuel pump work for a bit, you cant 100 percent rule out a bad fuel pump;you may have a better idea if it starts. good luck

Will turn over but wont start cant hear the fuel pump


If it hasn't run in a couple years, I would use a "test light" and check for power at the plug-in for the fuel pump. If ther's no power I would run a wire from the battery straight to the fuel pump itself. If the pump doesn't turn on you will have to replace the pump. If this starts it. If this makes it work you could put a fuse in the wire and hook it under the hood to any wire that has power when you turn on the key.

If you are trying to get it running again after 2 years it might be a good idea to pick up a Haynes manual for the car. They're only about $20 and have a lot of useful help for the DIYer doing average repairs. Hope this helps.

I have a 97 breeze that sometimes wont start. then a day later it will start right up. Also sometimes it sputters while driving and wants to die but then just keeps on going. Could this be a fuel line...


when it don't start check to see if the car has spark. Also listen to see if you can hear the fuel pump in the gas tank working. Fuel pump should make a buzzing noise when you first turn the key on for a few seconds. If the car has spark but you can't hear the fuel pump the pump is probably your problem. If you can hear the pump and have no spark I would check the crank sensor. If you cant hear the fuel pump be sure to check the fuel pump relay under the hood in the fuse box before changing the fuel pump. Good luck

I put a new fuel pump in and still wont start


ok if the fuel pump is energizing and you can hear it turn on then the pump is working fine and you probably have a restriction. i would replace the fuel filter. when you replace the pump did you replace the strainer on the pump? if not then thats where your problem lies. also could be the fuel pressure regulator also. there is a schrader port on the fuel rail try taking a pen and press down on the core to see if fuel squirts out. or connect a fuel pressure guage to the port and see if you have the right fuel pressure. it should run between 35 and 47 psi

96 z 28 wont start


The Alt is okay but the battery won't keep a charge? Replace the battery. At least take it to an auto parts store, and have them do a load test.

Your fuel pump is electric. When you turn the key on it pumps up. After it has developed the needed pressure, it no longer pumps, hence you won't hear it working anymore.

Diagnose your problem going through the various systems. Right now you have a problem with the starting system. It sounds like, from your explanation, that the battery is bad.
If your battery checks out, and then you have the alternator checked out, you have an electrical drain. This may be tough to find.

After you replace your battery, wait 10 minutes, then try to start your Camaro. If it doesn't start, (Key to the Off position), take the Positive battery cable loose. Wait 2 minutes, then reconnect it. You are resetting the computer.
