Why will my Honda accord not start?

Can you provide me with reasons my Honda will not start?


Answer by  peters (296)

A honda no start problem is usually in the main relay. They are bad about not starting when it is hot outside, but then when it is cool it will start again. It could also be an ignition coil or the fuel pump. Those are the main reasons. Check for spark and fuel to narrow it down.

Either your starter is bad, your battery is bad, or your alternator is bad. Or it could just be you have a loose wire or ground somewhere.

Best way to troubleshoot is noises. No noise: dead battery, or bad starter, or bad ignition switch. Clicking only: bad starter, bad distributor or plug cables. Whir-whir-whir: no fuel, or clogged fuel line, or bad fuel injectors, or no compression in cylinders. Getting help is easy -- ask around.

If it cranks but doesn't start then it's your spark plugs, plug wires, fuel pump, a bad fuse or relay, or ignition. If it simply does nothing at all then your battery is dead. Other possible reasons could be that the ECM or PCM has fizzled out.


Answer by  bb (674)

check the battery and the starter. sometimes the battery can be dead or the starter worn out. also check the plug wires and coil.

There are hundreds of possible reason your car will not start. If you had given more information I could have possibly pointed you in the correct direction. Now all I can suggest is to check the battery, fuel, and ignition timing. Also make sure that you have plenty of gas.
