Question about 1992 Honda Accord

1 Answer

New updates for this problem: 1. It now won't stay running. 2. When I turn the key to run (not start) it doesn't blow air as it normally should. 3. When I turn it to start it does in fact start but when i let go of the key it dies again. 4. If I hold it halfway in between start and run after it has started it will stay running until I completely release it to run. I think it may be a problem with the ignition, 18 years of starting it may have worn out a spring or something. But what do I know.

    Oh my word... I was on a stretch of highway back in March...coming back to Arkansas from Arizona... snow on the ground... cold.... My ignition did the same thing yours did.... I was 100 miles West of Roswell New Mexico.... I had to hold my key on with my fingers the whole time... in just the perfect position as to not engage the starter and not shutting off! I was miserable... because there was also no heat because of it! That spring is not real tight... but hold it on for 100 miles it feels like a gorilla pushing against you after a while! I finally got to Roswell... and low and behold there was a Honda Dealership there... but they didn't have my 1993 model ignition, so i bought a package of cheap paint brushes... and and roll of duct tape.... used the wooden handle from one of the brushes... taped it to the key at a 90 degree angle and then started the car and then put tape on the handle and then taped it to the dash! Then drove on in to Dallas that night.... 24 hours on the road non stop! I'm hoping your experience is better! LOL

30amp AM 2 fuse blows as soon you turn on the key & car will not start


This is common about this time on these Camrys. I own three. The AM2 fuse is blowing because a coil, capacitor, or supressor has gone bad in the distributor. To test this disconnect the two wire connectors to the distributor. Replace the AM2 fuse. Turn the ignition. If the fuse doesn't blow. The distributor.

My 1998 dodge caravan won't stay running. starts up but shuts down instantantly or when i take my foot off the gas pedal,


ok i have a 1998 durango with the 5.2L 318 engine. had trouble with a bad cell in my battery. I went out bought an optima red top battery for it 800cca. put it in and had same trouble. No start without putting foot on gas. wouldn't stay running without holding foot on gas. CPU has to relearn it's programming once you unplug it for long periods of time. mine was without power for about 2-3 weeks till i got new battery. Start with this.. first check under air filter make sure a squirrel hasn't made a mess under your air filter and it's clogging the air intake. Then pull off the lid to your injector cover ( the screw down lid coming from the air box ( with air filter in it) to "carb") make sure all your cables move freely. put that all back together and close hood. Start truck with foot slightly on gas pedal to get started. keep it at about 1k to 1500 rpm for about 1-2 minutes. Rev motor to about 2500rpm and let it die out if it will. Get out lock doors with key fob if you have it. if not make sure to lock doors. ( trust me it worked for me) let sit for 5 minutes. come back out and unlock door and relock door 3 times with fob ( if you have it ) or key if you don't have a fob. Then unlock it with the key and enter vehicle. Start truck as before and keep it around 1k to 1500 rpm again for about 30 seconds rev it up and should keep running. Mine did. I think the iac was stuck from sitting and has now since loosened up.
Good luck hope ti works for you.

Can someone please help me figur out what is wrong with my Envoy? running on 1 or 2 cylinders, irratic idle,light surge, doen't want to stay started, flat on the floor sitting still doesn't go


check the fuel pressure at the fuel rail. you will see a small black cap like you find on a tire. unscrew it and you should see a pin in the middle and the valve will look exactly like the valve on a tire where you put air in. take a small nail or key or something and gently push the pin down while the key is in the on postion.BE CAREFUL AS GAS WILL SHOOT OUT OF THE VALVE!! Make sure you listen close if air comes out with the gas.Keep holding pin down til all air is out and only gas is shooting out. this should solve your problem if not try again and if you have more air in fuel line then you have a leak in fuel line

GMC 2000 sierra pick up 1500 sounds like it wants to start but won't turn over. Battery sounds good so I guess battery and alternator are ok. For several years fuel gauge doesn't work and...


It sure could be. But, first...by "won't turn over" you do mean it cranks at normal speed but won't start?
A simple test of the fuel pump is to stand by tank and listen as someone turns key to on. When first turned to on, your pump will activate for 2 or 3 seconds, pressurizing the fuel system, and then shut off if the engine computer doesn't get a cranking signal. Do you hear it come on? If not, then something's not turning your pump on. If you can hear it buzz on briefly, then maybe it's your filter. Another test: Spray a little starting fluid into your intake manifold (remove the big hose going into intake manifold) while someone tries starting it.If it doesn't fire and try to stay running, then it's probably an ignition problem. But if it does fire off, then you know it's a fuel problem-likely your pump or filter. good luck.

It won't die when pulling the relay because it has another power path to the fuel pump through the oil pressure switch .

Plus when it won't start ,don't guess or theorize !

How do I program my key for my 2006 Chevy Impala?


Add Duplicate Key (PK3 or PK3+ key)
1. Insert an existing key into the ignition cylinder.
2. Turn the ignition cylinder to ON (RUN) and back to OFF.
3. Remove the existing key and, within fifteen seconds, insert the new key
and turn it to ON (RUN).
4. The security light will light up for two seconds to indicate success in programming
the key into the vehicle.
Originate New Master Key (PK3 or PK3+ key)

1. Insert new key into ignition cylinder and turn it to the ON (RUN) position.
The security light on the dash will illuminate and stay on for ten minutes.
2. When the security light goes out, you have one minute to start the next
step. Turn the ignition cylinder to OFF and then back to the ON (RUN)
position. The security light on the dash will illuminate and stay on for ten
more minutes.
3. When the security light goes out, you have one minute to start the next
step. Turn the ignition cylinder to OFF and then back on the ON (RUN)
position. The security light on the dash will illuminate and stay on for ten
more minutes.
4. After the security light has gone off the third time, the key has been programmed
into the vehicle’s computer and will operate the car. It has replaced ALL the
previous electronic key codes and is the ONLY key programmed into the
vehicle’s computer.
