Customer Question
I have a 2006...

I have a 2006 v6 accord with an intermittant problem where the starter wont engage when you turn the key. i replaced the battery with the same result. when it starts everything is fine

Mechanic's Assistant: Can you turn the steering wheel at all? And what about the key? Is it worn or damaged?

I can turn the wheel, the keys look normal for the wear and age

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Accord yourself? What have you tried so far?

I replaced the batt and neg cable. and then had a local shop look at it.they could not find anything, the car started like it should while at the shop

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

Could i have an issue with the battery in the key fob
