Your honda sends a signal from the distributor to a module inside the car. Ensure that this module is grounded properly. You can do this by simply removing the module and cleaning the area, then replacing it. The module is held in place by two screws. Poorly grounded module will give wear or intermittent spark.

This may be related to the antitheft system The system is known for turning off the starter and/or injectors when it fails. Is there a light on the dash that says SECURITY? This is a common problem worth looking into. http://www.diy-gm-security.com/

Honda odessey engine code p3100


There is no p3100 code!!

I think you copied this wrong. the code is p0301, which is a common one.

The P0301 code means that the cylinder 1 is misfiring or is randomly misfiring. Start by checking for intake leaks an if no leaks are found the next step is to replace the spark plugs on cylinder 1. If the problem persist more tests needs to be done to diagnose problem.

Possible causes
- Faulty spark plug 1
- Clogged or faulty fuel injector 1
- Faulty ignition coil 1
- Fuel injector 1 harness is open or shorted
- Fuel injector 1 circuit poor electrical connection
- Ignition coil 1 harness is open or shorted
- Ignition coil 1 circuit poor electrical connection
- Insufficient cylinder 1 compression
- Incorrect fuel pressure
- Intake air leak

Most likely cause:
Faulty spark plug 1 or Faulty ignition coil 1 (Ignitor coil)

Either are easy fixes. Start with a new spark plug. If the problem continues replace the coil. Pic below. new about $30-$40.

Reset maintenance light


There are 2 way to reset the maintenance light on Civic.
1. Manually reset
To reset this maintenance light, you will put the key in the ignition. Next you will press and hold the odometer reset knob, which can be found on the dash where the car's current mileage is located. While you continue holding that know, you will turn the key to the first position but do not start the engine. After about 10 seconds, the maintenance light should disappear. If the light is still on, you can turn off the vehicle and then try the process again. Once the light is off, you are all set until your next schedule maintenance.

2. Hook up a HDS (Honda Diagnostic System) software on a laptop, the light will go off within minutes.

Security light is flashing. car will not start on my 2003 oldsmobile alero


I OWN a 2001 Olds Alero and the same thing happens to mine.. It's an easy fix..
1. Turn the Key to ACC (keep it in this mode for the entire 10 minutes).
2. The security light on the Dashboard will flash for exactly 10 minutes..
3. Once the 10 mins are over, the security light will stay solid..
Wait for the red light to disappear off the dashboard...
YOU ARE NOW READY TO TURN YOUR CAR OFF AND RESTART YOU CAR....

SIMPLE FIX..
I DO THIS ALL THE TIME TO MINE..

My honda guit running and won't start. it has pfi. it's 91 accord.


1. Check your battery to make sure it is not rusted, leaking, and has a charge 2. Jump start your battery with another car, even if you believe the battery is good, this often times will still start your car. 3. If your engine is cold, and you have an older car, ensure to get your fuel lines to the engine flushed or have fuel injection service performed 4. The engine tends to warp the same way wood does during the extreme cold, do not be afraid to continue trying to warm up the engine by constant cranks with it is cold out. Your not going to hurt the car, the worse that could happen is too much fuel will enter the carborator and cause flooding in the system to occur. Wait 20 minutes if this happens and start to crank again 5. Bad spark plugs are a major reason why many cars take a very long time to start 6. Please have your spark plugs removed and exchanged for new ones. Over time, spark plugs become fowled and prevent the car from starting even thou you hear cranking!!!

My 2001 pontiac grand am does not want to start.


check and make sure your security light isn't on.  The security feature malfunctions on these models often.  If the security light is on, turn everything in the car off (radio, a.c. etc.) turn the key off, turn it back on to acc tap it into start until if just starts to turn over then leave it in the relaxed start position.  Allow the car to just sit like this for up to 20 minutes.  The security light will go off and you will then be able to turn the key off and then start the vehicle.
