Security is set. Could be one problem. Fuel system can do this, but rarely. Takes a scanner to see where to look first.

Sorry but it took me a lot of time before having it fixed. Well, I think the problem started with the turn signal switch. It used to make a noise. Something like "ZZZZZZTT" whether you're turning right or left. So I had them replaced for CN$300, including the labor. The actual problem is the "blinker". It's been damaged. To replace it will cost you about CN$100 just for the part. You can replace it by yourself.
I am not really a mechanic but it looks like what happened was the turn signal switch has damaged the blinker since it was not sending the right signal to it everytime it is activated.... Is it?

Turn Signals/blinkers


Did you double-check to be sure the fuses are intact and not blown? If they are OK, it could be a turn signal relay or the switch itself (I have firsthand experience with the switch failing with respect to headlight operation, so there's no reason to believe that it couldn't fail for turn signal operation as well).

If you find that it's the switch, reply here and I can walk you through its replacement - it's about a five minute job.

1998 Honda Accord 4 cylinder - Electrical? CAR DIES.


Hi..
The first step I recomend for try to fix your car is:
Get the car Scanned for see if there any present CODE.
The code help to have IDEA where or what is the problem.
If you don't want to spend money,
Go to ADVANCE Autoparts, Auto zone autoparts and some of the NAPA's Autopart, they make Computer diagnostic with out charge for that is only a free service.
If they don't found any code. I RECOMEND
Replace the FUEL PUMP Realy. "(MAIN RELAY)."
Because is one of the 90% of the problem with shutdown or non starting conditions.
The relay is located under the left side of the dash. The relay
Is bigger than a regular relay. colour gray. You can get at any autoparts.

OK... I hope this help to start diagnostic your car.
Thank you for use fixya.
