Question about 1991 Honda Accord

91 honda accord won't start sometimes-battery, a/c, starter?

My 91 honda accord is temperamental with starting. sometimes i put the key in the ignition and turn and nothing happens, not even a click. and sometimes i turn and the dash lights up. and some of the time, i can start it right up. an engine fan has been coming on even when i haven't driven it and runs for hours. and sometimes it only runs for a few minutes. i have had two battery tests done. one says that it is low and bad at a 5.75 reading. one said it was good at a 12 reading. the alternator is good said both. the a/c worked when i bought it, but now it doesn't work.something must be draining the battery, but what? fuses-starter, a/c, cooling fan? fuse wires? or connection wires?

    NEW INFORMATION
    the radiator fan is on the driver's side, right? and the a/c fan is on the passenger fan? if this is true, than my radiator fan is operating, but my a/c fan is not. weird thing is happening though. i tried pulling some fuses to see if it was a bad fuse. when i pulled out the condenser fan 15A fuse in from the relay box, my radiator fan went off. i tried pulling fuse for a/c clutch relay 7.5A and putting a new one in. the a/c fan still did not come on. BTW, the a/c only blows hot air.+ my glove box had not been shutting properly. the bulb is burnt out. could have been source of a drain? my seat belt motor is not working properly on the the passenger side. and yet the circuit is not blown.

    i have been hearing this timer sound from my cooling fan relay main fuse under the hood. it is a scary sound like somethings about to blow. this fuse is warm to the touch, so i am not sure if it is blown or a lot of juice is going to it for some reason. perhaps some power is being diverted to it from somewhere else?

Your tempermental starting problem could be the park neutral safety switch . They get worn inside an cause this type problem . Next time it won't start place gear selector into neutral an see if it starts then . The cooling running problem is probably the cooling fan timer module . From the diagram it's hard to say which side the A/C condenser fan is on. The A/C fan has blue with yellow stripe wire in the connector along with a black one . I would also suggest you have a qualified repair shop do a voltage drop test on the starting circuit .

You might have to change the spark plugs or at least have them cleaned.

You can jump across the celonoid on the starter. If the engine turns over then your problem is either the celonoid or the starter switch.

try taking a power wire from the battery positive and getting it on the starter terminal and seeing if the starter turns over if it does it could be a fusible link that runs between the starter terminal and the relay

sounds to me that you have an igniton problem not a starter problem and or if you have or had an alarm system could be cause if u do give me feedback and i will explain but seems that your starter is fine from what u say but if you think in terms of the elemts to start a vehicle batery gives pwoer to ignition which sends to starter which gives spark etc i would check you ignition system something is causeing a short and not alowing starter to function

SOURCE: where is the starter relay on a 94 Honda Accord

Yes, it sounds like your solenoid is bad and staying engaged against the flywheel, you could do an amperage draw and a voltage drop test to find out for sure, but you will need an DVOM and a amp clamp. Or you could take it into an auto parts store and they will test it for free. Hope this helps.

Only thing it could have been in the first place is the wire from the switch to the starter is disconnected from the starter. Even a new switch won't fix that. Just get under the car and plug the wire back onto the spade connector.

Sounds like possibly a shorted or sulfated battery to me. I would replace it, especially if it is four years old or mor. Also check all of your battery connections and cables to verify that they are clean and tight (BOTH ends of the cables).

Car turns but won't stay running


Check fuel pump fuse and all other fuses, check brake switch, Also, a worn ignition switch will cause the car to start sometimes but not always. Try turning the switch to on position, then jiggle the key around in the switch while pushing in a bit...now start the car...did it start? If yes, replace switch and/or key cylinder....

99 honda accord dies @various times. Whats happening?


Does it restart easily?

Check the battery lead to the car body the black one ensure it is tight and has a good connection. ensure the battery leads are both tight and make sure neither are touching the bonnet.

Can you give me some more details like how it happened, what the car does when it happens etc.?

My 1997 honda accord wont start.....


Hi Matt

Follow the( + ) positive lead from the battery, to the starter, check the connections, if all OK, get someone to turn the ignition key to start, and give the starter a tap, on the selenoid, with a small hammer or a metal socket extension.

Good Luck !

Let me know the outcome !

Also a FixYa rating would be nice !

Ok start from the beginning, you are going to need a factory wiring diagram to make sure you are connecting the wires to the ignition coil where I believe you need to start

S----Light


I have honda accord 91 for more than 6 yrs. If the S light comes on ,it means one of the sensors are not working. it has nothing to do with transmission. It could happen sometimes during rain , or cleaning as the computer controller is under driver seat.
Once the S light blinks or comes on . Stop the car and take ignition off and wait for a minutes and put ignition again , it will be gone and will change in the speed and gear shifting will be different.
Hope it will help
