Question about 1996 Honda Accord

1 Answer

I have a 1996 accord. 5 speed manual transmission that will not start. I turn the key and nothing. Radio works, lights work, horn works. It will not jump start, but it can be rolled and I can pop the clutch. What's wrong with this vehicle?

    Tried the hammer test. Didn't work. What now? By the way, will continuing to pop the clutch do damage to this car?

You have a bum starter. You can test this by locating the starter(on the 4 cylinder model(2.2 ltr)it is on the passenger side, nearest the radiator, on the v-6 model, it is on the driver's side nearest the radiator, both attatched to the engine). Once you have done that, get a small hammer, and have someone turn the key to the start position and hold it there. Whilst this is being done, tap the starter motor with the hammer. If it cranks, replace the starter/ This is now verified! If it does not crank, we need to test for voltage at the starter to veifry a bum starter. Let me know and I will continue to help. I will be away from my computer for the remainder of the afternoon, so use my email to for contact as I will be able to retrieve it from my blackberry... iambanshee74@yahoo.com

Possible starter failure if the engine doesn't crank. You can try tapping on the starter motor using a blunt object while turning the key to see if it starts. If it starts, suspect a defective starter motor. If it is a manual transmission, you can push start it in gear

Sounds like an Ignition Module or similar device. Does it have an alarm? Turn the key to ON - not start - and put into Drive and then back into Park. It may be the shifter isn't fully engaged. Also, w/your FOOT ON THE BRAKE shift to Neutral and try to start it.

88 s10 2.8 5 speed have power to lights, blower, radio, but wont turn over when turning key no clicking nothing wont even start or turn over by crossing solenoid


Since you have power to your accessories, here are a few more things to consider:
1: Automatic transmission not in park or the neutral safety switch is faulty
2: On manual transmissions clutch pedal not depressed or or clutch start switch failure
3: Broken or loose wires in the starting circuit. Inspect all wires and connectors at the battery, starter solenoid, and ignition switch
4: Starter motor pinion jammed in flywheel ring gear. Manual transmission. place transmission in gear and rock the vehicle to manually turn the engine. Remove starter and inspect pinion and flywheel

Car wont start or take boost


Sounds like your battery has a dead cell. The cranking amps required to start a vehicle is considerably more than to power accessories. The alarm may have a safety feature that will make it go off if the battery voltage is too low (or if someone disconnects your battery). Have your battery tested (with and without a load) and repost if this isn't the problem.

Manual trans cars have a lock that will not release the key untill you pust the button, switch, etc. It should be right beside the Ignition.
