Odds are the car will always be parked in sunlight, the problem is it's not starting after sitting and I can't see how the sun could effect any part of a car except crack your dash over time. I've read of a similar issue but different results. Usually with electronics, like the ECM or a sensor is going bad. Does it crank? Does the crank sound weak? Does the check engine light come on for a few seconds when you turn the key to the ON position (not running) if not your ECM has a short or going bad. Not sure if you have both but very important sensors are the crankshaft position sensor and camshaft angle sensor. If either are bad or going bad, your car will not start except when they feel like working. I'd lean toward something electrical.

Sun shade is stuck open on 93 accord


make sure the glass is closed, kneel on the drivers seat facing the rear of the car. Grab the sunshade with one hand on each side then pull the passenger side more than the drivers side, basically twisting the shade from side to side as you tug it firmly forward. Worked for mine hope it works for yours.

99 Honda Accord EX V6 check engine light comes on and blinks ten times when I start the car along with the SRS light being on for a short period of time. The other problem has been the car shutting off...


Your vehicle may be part of a 2002 honda/acura recall. Faulty ignition switch!! Typical symptoms are: Random stalls, hard start, no spark, power loss (symptoms progress in hotter weather). When the vehicle stalls/shuts off while in motion, usually the speedometer drops to "0" while in motion. Some warning light not lit when ignition is set to "on" (chk engine/ABS/Brake etc.). Call your local dealer with your VIN# on hand and check if your vehicle is part of the recall. Refer to faulty ignition switches, affected years (1998-2002 models), accords/preludes/pilot/Odyssey/Civic/CR-V and various Acura models.

CALL YOUR LOCAL DEALER!! there is a interlock update on the car... try that first.. but the the sensor in the shift might be bad.. you can unplug it to check if that's the problem it's under the center councel ... if your looking down at the shifter it's on the left side you can actual reach your had undter the plastic on the driver side and unplug it (by the carpet) just take out the one or two screws on the side by the carpet and i think it's a single wire up along the left side of the shifter...

91 honda accord "S" light no start


Honda has a long history of ignition distributor issues, heat play a major role in these delecate components, in older vehicles they get hot and the circuitry inside failes and after a wait period the vehicle will start again this happens to many cars, nissan, older Gm ,ford, Replacing the distributor has solved this problem for many honda owners and I believe you e also having this very same problem.
If this information is helpful to you please give me a fixya rating and if you find you need additional help do not hesitate to contat me i will do all I can to help.
