    hi from uk if this fault only happens when you are driving and then hit the brakes resulting in engine cuts off etc as you mention ? but if you are stationary with engine running then hit brakes this fault does not happen ?? then the point that you mention of jump starting ? i assume starter does not turn engine so a jump start will ? may i suggest you check the main earth cable from the battery where it connects to the engine ? usually at point where engine connects to transmission ? it may be that as you drive once jump started ? then brake the engine tilts and is causing the main earth cable connection to fail ie loose or corroded cable? this would result in total elec shut down and starter failure however use of jump leads will operate starter ? try connecting a jump lead from battery earth connection to a suitable earth on engine then try to start and check for fault again when brakes applied ? hope this helps?

I would have the alternator checked,if the battery is going down,then the car will die when the bake is applied because of vacuum lose during deceleration,and no charging system .Replace the alternator,and charge the battery up with a 2amp charge over night.

I would assume you have a short in the brake lights.
disconnect them at the switch on the master cylinder.
Then use a pulse generator and probe to locate the short, just like tracing a telephone wire.
If you don't have a tracing set, you can buy one for $30 at Harbor Freight, or you can simply use a pin to probe into the wire, and use a continuity test light.
Or you can simply look for a wire cut by body damage, sharp edges, etc.

CAR DOESN'T START, I HIT A BUMB AND THE CAR SHUT OFF, WHEN I TURN THE KEY NOTHING HAPPENS, RADIO, LIGHTS COME ON


Some vehicles have a fuel pump cut off switch that shuts all power to fuel pump in case of an accident. It activates by inertia...meaning that a severe "bump" will activate switch, thereby cutting off the fuel pump. If your vehicle has that switch, hitting that bump may have activated switch. If you do have that switch, reset it by pressing in the reset button.

Apart from the fuse cutting off you might have had some wires cut off too. Have an expert take a look at it for you.

I experienced this before.

Good luck.

Cut out factory radio...could i had shortened something or blown?


Actually, I still have the factory-installed radio in my 1999 Honda Accord, and it started cutting out randomly about three months ago. It's some kind of power issue, i.e., when I speed up, it's ok, but when I brake it cuts out. However, once it cuts out, if I hit the power window switch the radio will come back on.

It could be a blown fusible link. These are hidden in the wiring on most cars either near the battery connections, or near the starter motor. To find, use a test lamp and start at the battery and work your way along the power wires until you get t a place where there is no power. There is usually a lump or narrow spot in a wire where the link is.
