You need to start with the battery. It should be load tested to verify that it's good or not. You can take it to a auto parts store to be tested, usually for free.

The firewall is the sheet of metal that separates you from the engine compartment on a typical engine in front design automobile. Often there are many items bolted to the firewall including A/C hoses.

You seriously need to know where the engine is on your lonesome or this is pointless.

The low pressure side of the A/C system will be the larger tubing size than the high pressure side. Start at the A/C compressor and work your way back to the firewall on the lower right side of the automobile where the lines likely go into the passenger compartment just at or around his/her knees.

Check your wiring again. I had a friend that did along the same lines in a crx. Drove the shop crazy for couple months why they couldn't crank it. When it came down to it, 2 of the wires were hooked up wrong. Sorry no specific information.

there are 2 possible parts here, one is a transmission speed sensor, this part tells the cruise what speed u set and keep it there, the other is the the actual actuator that holds the throttle at the right position to maintain set speed, other less common issue's make sure the brake and clutch (if manual trans only) cruise cut off switche's are ok

Have you had the battery tested? If it's weak, and u turn the key on, the drain on the battery will just kill it, as if you were to 'lose all power'. Pull it out and bring it to a parts store for a free check to see if it's good or time to replace it. countrycurt0

how do I remove a alternator from a 19988 honda accord?

1987 Honda... | Answered on Aug 20, 2008 | 779 views

The axle isn't seated all the way into the transmission.Inside the transmission is the differential,the axle goes into a side gear,called a spider gear,and slips into splines inside the spider gear.Once in to a certain point,there is a retainer clip on the end of the axle that pops out when seated all the way into the spider gear in the trans,and this holds,or retains the axle in the trans.If whoever worked on the car didn't have the axle fully seated to where the clip popped out,then the axle will eventually slide back out of the trans,disengaging the splines,and causing the vehicle to not move.Good luck.
