Troubleshooting a 1998 honda accord

If it is has an automatic trans, and it stalls when you put it in reverse or drive, it could be the idle air control valve.
You would be able to speed up the engine with the gas pedal to keep the engine from stalling if this is the case.
The computer should bump up the idle speed when the engine is under load by controlling the air going into the intake.
If the engine stalls suddenly it could be the torque converter clutch.

I'd have the alternator checked. when the car is running, all power is coming off the alternator, not the battery. Sounds like you have a weak alternator, or make sure the belt running it is tensioned correctly, and still in good condition.

2000 mercury sable compressor wont kick even when i jump pressure sensor. All fuses and relays are good. older ones had a control box on side of battery that i would change to fix. This one doesn't, did...

Maybe you are close to a solution. I was thinking you may have jumped the High pressure switch instead of the Low pressure. But what about power TO the connector you are jumping? If the connector is dead at that point you have to backtrack its power source.
If the Sable has the Digital controlhead for the A/C there are some self-diagnostic tests it can be made to run by pushing display buttons in a particular sequence with a small time limit. I do not have the sequence for it, you should be able to get it from the internet.

My 1998 Mercury Sable horn is not working, where

We have 2005 mercury sable. Horn was not working but you could hear the relay clicking inside the vehicle when pressing the horn button, and the fuse was fine. I found the horn by looking under the vehicle behind the driver side headlamp. Tapped on the horn with a wench and IT WORKED AGAIN!

Should be a dip-stick under the hood..

Check the fluid while the car is running in park & while its warm..

Note; trani fluid is messured in pints not quarts on the dip-stick.. Be careful not to over fill it..

Hope this helps !!

97 Sable passenger window will not close. Both driver side and passenger actuator are not working for this window. Looks like I have power to the switch. Tried reversing the up wires with the down...

Hard to believe the fix I have for you but it worked for us and totally surprised us too. We have a 1997 Mercury Sable, power everything and the drivers side window would not go up but all other windows worked fine. I called a car place to see about how much it would cost to fix and he told me to do this......sit in car with car on and have the door open to the window that won't go up, now hold the button in the UP position on the window and slam the door(even might have to have someone slam it for you)....when we did this the window went straight up perfectly and worked fine afterward and for 2 years. So please try it. The guy told us it would work on any power windows in any car because it just jumps the bad part or place in the window thingy lol.....good luck.

Stalls won't start even wtih jump

just a few easy things to check! if your battery is more then 3 yrs old,its a good idea to replace it, even if this is not the cure, but it sounds to me it is a good possibility,had the same problem with my car! see you don't want to jump start it through the battery in your car! the way to buy pass a bad battery is to connect the positive cable from the good battery to the positive post on the car being jumped, connect the negative cable to the frame of the car being jumped,NOT TO THE BATTERY.also, when u get it running take it right to a place that can check your alternator to make sure its o.k. their are some auto part stores that will do that for free and u could get the battery from them if needed.good luck to u,hope we helped!

Check the transmission fluid first. it sounds like one of the clutch plates is sticking.

If you shift into second after you've stopped, can you get the car moving?
