Question about 1997 Honda Accord

2 Answers

Security System has locked. Car will not start.

Car drove just fine Sunday. Tuesday would not start. Security system sound was disconnected when car was purchased, although I was told the entire system was disconnected. System has engaged and will not disengage so that the car will start. All other systems are on, battery is charged, tank 1/2 full. Have had no problems in 2 years I have owned the car. Fuses have been checked and they are all ok. Spark plugs were recently changed as was the air filter.

Try locking and unlocking the car with the key and not the remote. Sometimes this will disengage the alarm.

you need to get a new ign. lock cylinder and chip key. Or you can get a lock cylinder and copy your old key with a regular key no chip. Take new cylinder, put old chip key in it. Plug into harness at the bottom of steering column just behind the dash, fine orange wire from existing one in the column. Hide lock cylinder under dash and start car with copy of old key.

does this car have an aftermarket alarm system? it sounds like it does, as i dont ever recall seeing a blue flashing light in one of these cars. do you have an alarm / auto start remote control? try locking / unlocking the car several times with the remote, if it has a remote start try starting it with the remote a few times. try locking / unlocking the car with the key. good luck!

Batt. installed started fine now will turn over but not start

Sounds like the computer is in lock down. My sister has a 99 cavalier and used a cut key to start her car and a couple days later the car would not start. Tried everything then had to get a gm computer to reset the ecu. I have heard about the anti theft systems in GM cars that can cause this as well. Look into it if you cant figure anything out. There might be a code to input into the radio to take it off as well.

1990 dodge dynasty 3.3 engine starts fine but a second later dies changed gas filter and fuel pump and regulator still don't stay started.

Same thing happened to my '89 Dynasty. Turns out the security system was engaged and this stops the motor from running; therefore. a thief cannot drive away with the car! The system is set by using the power locks or an autolock fob, but not by locking manually. Disconnecting the battery will also engage the security system. To disengage, close the driver or passenger (front) door and turn the key in the lock.
