Remove your alternator and starter and take them down to an auto parts store to be load tested. Use an amp meter to double check that your battery is reaching AT LEAST 12.5 volts. If it is getting anything less than 12v, such as 11.5 or 11 or 10.5 or anything under 12.5, then it too needs to be replaced.

If your alternator and/or alternator test to not be working, replace them. If they test to be working just fine, check your battery terminals for calcium build up, old terminals, bad cables or a bad ground. Check the alternator and starter wiring for the same wear.

My Honda Accord 96 has the same problem. I can see the starter turning but it sounds different than it was before. No smell of gas coming up even if I press the gas pedal many times. I also noticed that the spark plugs are soaked in oil but it is like this before it quit running. I can hear the gas pump humming when I turn on the key. My daughter was riding it on the freeway and suddenly it just died. It has new battery. Thanks for any feedback!

The battery is at fault unless the starter is broken and needs to be replaced (assuming full power in battery).

I have a 1996 Honda Accord with 268k miles that sputters at the same timethe speedometer needle fluctuates wildly. But I do have a new Vehicle Speed Sensor. This typically only happens when the engin


I am no Honda expert, but a similar problem happened to my ex sister in-laws Ford Taurus. The speed odometer would jump around and it had trouble shifting (automatic transmission). After driving it I changed out the speed odometer sensor on the transmission and it's been fine ever since. I changed out the sensor because if the cars computer cannot tell how fast the car is traveling then fail safes in place go into effect and the computer will do it's best to keep the cars rpm's down based on the speed indicator and not let it shift or shift properly either. If it's getting false speeds then it will shut down the motor when the speed gets to high and allow it to run as the speeds fall (jumping speed odometer needle). It effects the transmission shift points also. It will either shift erratically or not shift out of say 2nd gear, so that the cars engine can't get damaged based on what signal the speed sensor is sending the computer.

Turn key on, but doesnt even click. battery and starter are fine


This may be due to a bad neutral safety switch, is this car automatic or manual transmission?

If automatic try to start in neutral and if manual try to locate switch on clutch pedal and use a jumper wire to jump connector for switch, NOTE; If switch is jumped car will start in gear with pedal not pushed down and car will take off so this is just as a test not a repair!!!!!, good day

Check the wiring/clamps on your battery - remove the clamps, look at the wires and see if there is any rust on them. I had the same thing happen to my car and that's what it ended up being. The rust was preventing electricity from entering the battery. Cut the rusted part off and cleaned the rust off the clamp, and then put the clamps back on the battery and the car fired right up.

Sputtering Belt in Engine. Slow shifting into gears.


Change the belt it sounds like it may be split somewhere.Just remove it and inspect it .

90% of all transmission problems are due to a defective battery. Why? because of the electronics they run off of. Now is it crank no start or no crank condition.
Start off with battery. Make sure its fully charged and terminals are a-ok. Then do starter checks . Let me know what you got at this point ,, cause chances are if battery died the codes are lost . Keep me posted I

Electrical problems with my 96 honda accord


This happens because the removal of the current to the computer or CPU gets de-programed. You may be able to solve the problem (if it comes up gain ) by disconnecting the negative cable with the engine off. Then renstalling it back after a minute.This will reprogram the computer.
