Question about 1992 Honda Accord

The D flashes and will not start.

The “D” flashes and the car will not start. There is an ignition switch to put the key in near the shifter. If you put the key in the ignition and hold it sometimes the car will start, but not always.

The D4 flashing is telling you that the computer believes something is wrong with your transmission.
The key switch next to your shifter allows you to shift to another gear when the engine is not running.
Since the ignition key is not starting the car (normally) you could try inserting your key in the shifter key port and turning it and moving the shift lever back and forth several times. The problem might be a sensor on your shift mechanism or transmission that is preventing the ignition switch from working, but I wouldn't hope for that being a solution to the problem.
Best you take the car to Honda or a trusted mechanic for help.

Wheel is locked up will not engage shifter move from Park to drive


1 Set the emergency brake.
2 Insert key into the ignition and turn the ignition switch to the "ON" or "RUN" position. It is not necessary to start the engine.
3 Locate the shift lock override slot located on the shifter console near the shifter lever. Normally, the slot is plugged with a small plastic cap. Remove the cap.
4 Insert a small screwdriver, nail file, key or similarly shaped object into the override slot, push down and hold
5 While continuing to hold down the shift override mechanism, depress the brake pedal.
6 Now, grasp the shifter, push in the release button located on the shifter as you normally do and then move the shifter to the desired gear. If you've completed these steps with the engine off, move the shifter to the Neutral position to start the engine.

Dont know if this helps

When you turn off car key wont cume out


You have a problem with the shifter. Common on the Aveo's. There's a switch on the shifter that wears out. When put in 'Park' it releases the ignition to remove the key. When that switch screws up it's not releasing the ignition. Replace the shifter. I'm a Chevy mechanic.

My brother told me to go onto the Internet to find out how to remove the ignition key on his 1997 Mercury Sable. He didn't say ignition switch just ignition key. Is that the same and how does he go about...


The key is what goes into the switch. So the key is stuck in the switch? try pushing in the key while turning the switch back to get it fully to the off position so you can remove the key.
Or there might be a button lock near the switch you might have to press to remove the key.
Worst case the key and switch are broken and jammed. If that is what happened, or your brother is acutally talking about the switch, to remove and install a new switch youll have to take it to a shop

My lumina wont start. the key turns into the second position but wont advance to the starting position much like something is blocking it. what can i do?


If there are other keys on the key chain that holds the car key remove them. Now try starting the car. If that doesn't work wiggle the key and depress brake pedal, move shifter lever into neutral and try starting the car.
If the car starts take it right to a repair shop there are several things that could be wrong with it .(neutral safety switch,shifter release,shifter , ignition switch)
If car doesn't start have it towed there and stay away from ignition switch no need to force it to start youe gonna break thekey in the switch and ahve a bigger problem.

My key will not turn in my ignition and I can not move my car out of gear, to where it's in neutral?


you may have a problem with the ignition switch
you may have problem with the key
on most cars there is an over-ride swich near the shifter look for a square opening-might be covered- sometimes ignition key will trigger the over-ride so you can move the shifter to neutral. Once in neutral try to start again you may have a problem with a neutral safety switch that is on all cars

Key is stuck in the ignition


I have worked on several vehicles with this same problem and each one was a relatively simple repair with no parts involved, first off the shift interlock has nothing to do with it and will not prevent your vehicle from going into park, it is designed to work ONLY when coming out of park. The problem your having depends on the type of shifter handle your vehicle has, if the release lever is on the bottom and you have to push up with your fingers to release it, then the problem is...there is a rubber type cover that surrounds the release button, after time it becomes distorted and bunches up preventing the shifter from fully engaging in the park position (even though it appears the vehicle is going into park)if your careful you can work the rubber cover out and your problem is fixed. If your shifter button is on the side and pressed with your thumb the cable needs to be adjusted, this cables only purpose is to prevent key removal except when in park and is easily adjusted, with the center council removed, if you look at the front of the shifter base you will see 2 cables that snap into the shifter frame, the larger one is the gear selector cable, the smaller one runs up to the steering column and operates the mechanism that prevents key removal, where the cable snaps into the shifter frame is where the adjustment is done and is identical to a kick-down cable used on older vehicles with automatic transmissions, right where it snaps into the frame there will be a button you can press down releasing a spring loaded adjustment arm, make sure you first mark the arm for reference then press down the button and adjust it a little either way until it functions properly, hope this helps and good luck

Is there a fee to ask ?


Now and then the gear shifter does not push up all the way to the park position locking up the ignition switch. Try moving the gear shifter up as far as you can to the park position and see if the key's will turn. Your ignition switch is a pass lock system ($$$$) and you don't want to be drilling that out unless you are will to replace it before you try to get the key's to work again. Keep me posted and let me know if that helped, if not i can give you the instructions to removing the ignition cylinder.

1990 mercury cougar will not start with key. Have relaced starter solenoid and ignition switch.


Try checking the neutral saftey switch.a good way to do this is to put the car in neutral and try to start,if your shifter is loose try jiggling it with the key turned with your foot on the brake.If the car starts while doing this then it is more than likely that the neutral start switch is bad or that the shifter or the linkage is loose and causing bad contact on the switch.
