Be sure and make sure the battery cables are clean and tight and if they are and it still does it, replace the starter.

Clean your battery cables. Tops and BOTTOMS. Bottoms are exposed to grease & road grime. When "gunk" builds up, forms resistance. You hitting the ignition switch multiple times heats up cables, they expand making better contact. Clean your cables. (Also have your battery checked - that is hard on batteries)

    And also make sure your alternator belt is tight.

Turns over but won't start


I would start checking fuses for power. It could be a battery cable issue or something in the fuse box. The dash lights would not be powered thru the key switch, but the other stuff would be. Provided the key switch is getting power for accessories.

I change my ignition switch in my honda oddysey 2005 and how can i program my key with ignition switch because not turn on my car


Your Odyssey has the "Immobilizer" system, that is intended to prevent someone who doesn't have your key to start your car. This system works by having a transmitter imbedded in your key and a receiver located as part of the ignition switch. The receiver picks up the signal transmitted from your key and sends it to the car's central computer. The computer is programmed to reject any signal from a key other than the one that came with your van. You have two choices: 1. Get your Odyssey to the dealer to reprogram the computer. 2. You can usually place your original key very near the key that came with the new ignition switch. This allows the receiver in the ignition switch to pick up the signal from your van's original key transmitter and send this signal to the computer. It is easy to try it.

THE VAN STARTED RIGHT UP AND I PUT IT IN REVERSE AND STARTED TO MOVE AND THEN THE VAN WENT DEAD. HEAD LIGHTS ARE OUT, DOME LIGHT IS OUT. BREAK LIGHTS WORK AND SOME DASH LIGHTS WORK. THE VEHICLE HAS ENOUGH...


I would guess that you either blew a main ignition fuse or the ignition switch melted.
The brake lights and starter don't use the ignition circuit.
You need to trace with a test light.
See if current comes out of ignition switch when you turn it on.
It has to be going into the switch for the starter to crank.
As to what blew the fuse, it could be a short in the backup light circuit?

Power to everything including sterio but dash while key is out of ignition and will not start when key is in ignition


Might be your ignition switch, or a fusable link from you battery. The switch makes more sense but i have no idea why it would screw up while you were driving. Usuall y that happens when you're starting it or shutting it off.

It definitely sounds like the electrical part of your ignition isn't working properly.When you turn the key, the lck and tumbler turns on the ign. switch in which sends power to the rest of the car.
