When the green key flashes on your dash, it's because it has not recognized the security chip inside your key and the immobilizer has kicked in. This will not permit the car to start. Accords come with anti-theft devices which prevent the car from being started without the properly encoded key.
The key or receiver has been damaged.
If you have a spare key - try it.
This is a tricky area to diagnose, if there are any other issues. Have you had any indication of intermittent power, due to your ignition switch? Sometimes, weight from additional keys and from the fob can cause wear in the ignition switch, which can lead to these problems. Also, the main relay may be failing, which provides power to the immobilizer.

That is your security system. there is a chip in the key and will need to be reprogrammed together with the car. have it towed over to your local dealer and there is a TSB(technical service bulletin) on these cars regarding issues with these alarms.

Hi,

For a car to run, you need few things. Compression, fuel and injector. I doubt that all the injectors are clogged. (one thing you can do to be sure its not fuel is to remove the intake tube from the airbox. Have someone crank the car then spray starting fluid down the tube. If it starts, you have a fuel delivery problem) The 3rd thing you need is spark. I think this is where your problem is. Do you have good plugs? (Not aftermarket) Are your wires good? Cap and rotor? You should replace all those things first with GENUINE HONDA PARTS. Then go from there. One common problem with your car was the main relay. Does it not start when the interior of the car is warm? If so, you need to replace the main relay.

Thanks for contacting Fixya.com

Ive got a honda accord ,both keys are on the same key ring and if i put the key in the ignition the green key light kn the dash starts to flash, both keys do the same


What shape is the light? Where on the dash? Check your owners manual to see exactly which light on the dash that is. It may be an oil change lamp reminding you to have your regular service done. The dealer or a good Honda mechanic can reset that light after they change your oil.

1998 Honda Accord replaced ignition wiring 2 weeks ago had no problems. Now I can't start. It cranks but won't start. No green Key light on dash at all now.


Replace the ignition switch that screws onto the back of the lock cylinder, they were a very common problem and actually subject to a recall. You could phone a nearby honda dealership with your VIN number and they may replace it for free.
