Wiper wiring diagram


Those are accessory functions working off the ignition switch when in accessory position or run position of the key. Were you to check if the wiper and radio fuse had power to them in the run or accessory position as they should, likely they would not. Power from the switch goes to the fuse panel, powering the fuses and circuits that only work with key in on or acc., either a direct wire to the fuse panel or sometimes, fuses get power from an accessory relay that sends power to fuses, but relay has to get a signal from a good working switch before it powers the fuses.
What I'm trying to say, is the bad switch is probably the reason you have no wipers, radio, or mirrors.

2001 cheve malibu. The Automatic lights, fuel guage, power windows quit working. The radio comes on when you turn off the switch but goes off when you turn it on.


It sounds like a short in your ignition switch. I assume you engine will not start? Check your fuses because if it is a short it should have blown a fuse or you would have smelled burning isolation from the wires. If you find a fuse blown it could give you a starting place to start checking. If the ignition fuse is blown it is in the ignition, wiring, starter or ignition key switch.

How to turn off the 'service engine' light, as in oil changes, etc. 2001 Honda Civic.


On my 99 Accord I start with the engine off. Hold down the Select/Reset button near the gauges and turn the ignition switch to the on position (not starting the car). Hold the button until the light goes off.
Hope this works for you.

Have power and accessories until key is turned to start


U will need to replace the ignition switch, this is not the key cylinder but the actual electrical switch the key cylinder operated. see photo. I noted that on your model Honda the switch comes with a new key cylinder, you can just use the switch and use your old cylinder over or install the new parts together.

I have a 2001 Ford Windstar. I can start the engine and it runs just fine. However, I have no radio, heat, wipers (all the accessories). They work when you turn your key to accessories, but they dont work...


I think a new ignition switch would avoid the torching of your sick van.
It may not help but try this:
- Make sure you have the radio on in the accessory position, then switch to the 'run' position; you needn't start the car.
Jiggle with (deserved) anger on the key - well, without breaking it, and watch the radio display to see if it will flicker when you do this. If it does, then the switch section that should contact in both Accessories & Run has failed. 
Most radios don't instantly turn on but delay a second or two,  therefore the attention to the display.

93 civic wont start


My mind goes to battery, starter, or kill switch.
If you can play the radio and the lights are working, but you get nothing when you try to start it (not even a clicking sound), it's not likely the starter, either.
You may have a kill switch engaged. Some Honda cars have a kill switch that disables the engine from starting. (Anti-theft device installed). Check your user Guide to see if there is info there.
Often, there is a button you need to push or some other trigger to release the lockout.
Here is what I would try:
1. Conact the seller, if you can, to inquire.
2. Call AAA. They may know the various options, and did help me when I had trouble.
3. Call a Honda dealer to inquire about options for disabling it.

Good luck.
