Question about 1994 Honda Accord

2 Answers

DavidHonda01 When you put the key in and start it and it fires but when you let go of the key everything dies. But if we start the car and turn the key back ever so slightly the car can still run. But then when we let go quickly the car stops. How do I fix this?

Car looses all electrical when ignition is turned on

sounds like a shorted cell in your battery. beleive it or not, I've also seen a bad altentator do the same thing. If you get the car started you can disconnect the battery while the car is running,if the engine dies, then you have a bad altenator. If it keeps running, then you will want to replace the battery. If neither of these work, then you'll want to start thinking "outside the box" with things like a bad ground connection, fuse box issues etc. Hpoe this helps!

I have a 88 Z24 Cavalier that when you start it it will start and die like its not getting fuel. we have checked the injectors the spark plugs and the injector wires everything works perfectly fine bu

on older models we had a procedure as follows.
hook up a remote starter switch turn key to on position and crank.
if there is no attempt to start or fire then the problem is in the electrical wiring. won't run in ignition on but will run in ignition start position.
They used to use fusible links that blew when they got old.
hope this helps.

When i turn the key on the engine starts but when i let go of the key the engine dies

I think your ignition switch is bad. The car is starting and running for a couple of seconds, right? Not just cranking with no fire? Can you put key in on position and jump starter externally? If you can jump starter but car won't run then definately problem in ignition switch.
