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....

SOURCE: dash lights not truning on

It sounds like, maybe during the stereo installation, that a fuse was blown. It is a common problem. Check your fuse that runs to your instrument panel. If this is blown, replace it with fuse w/ same voltage. Hope this was helpful... Please take a second to rate how helpful this suggestion was. Thanks and good luck!

Sounds like you need a new shifter cable, they tend to gum up over time.

I own a 97 honda accord ti turn on and runs good


Happens when it is hot, runs fine after cooling off? I had a 91 that did that. It was the ignitor, which fires the spark plug and the fuel injector for each cylinder. Very mysterious and hard to diagnose. It can only be determined while it is NOT working and the tech has instruments to check it.

Turned car off...sounded like it's trying to start w/o keys


This is called run on,or dieseling ,there maybe a timing problem,or the vehicle is running to hot,the temperature is to high,it may not be cooling good,check the temp of the engine,if it is too hot,then the cooling fan may not be working,or thermostat maybe staying closed.If the vehicles throttle is staying open to much,this could be the problem also.
