Hi,

What's it doing exactly? Is it cranking over? Is the green key light flashing on the dash while cranking?

All lights go off when I turn the key

Mechanic for Honda: Kyle N., Honda Master Tech replied 8 years ago

Was the car jump started backwards before the battery was replaced?

Possible, as it was in a tow yard with a dead battery.
Mechanic for Honda: Kyle N., Honda Master Tech replied 8 years ago

Ok,

 

Take the fusebox cover off and check the main fuse. It's the one that is screwed in on both sides. Also checked the "IGN" fuse. Both of those can be blown if the battery is jumped backwards. The fuses I'm talking about are bigger and have a clear plastic window on the top you can look into to see if the fuse is blown. If the copper is broken in the middle it's bad. Try that first.

Both fuses look OK
Customer reply replied 8 years ago
Green key light is on and engine orange light is on -- when key is turned nothing happens
Mechanic for Honda: Kyle N., Honda Master Tech replied 8 years ago

Ok,

Are the gauge needles fluttering?

 

Have you tried to jump start the car yet?

Thank you very much for saving my daughter and her family a lot of money on her Honda. You are definitely on my list for future help. Thanks, again.

I just heard from my mechanic. You were right...a $45.00 job. THANK YOU!! Your response was received in less than 10 minutes!!

Linda B.USA

Your answers were clear and the diagrams were perfect. Dealer wanted $87 for an hour of labor and even I did it in 15 minutes.

EdUSA

HONDA PLATINUM was great. I really appreciate his help. I was ready to trade my new Honda until he told me to wait until I got 3,000 miles on it and my gas mileage would get much better.

SummerUSA

I took the Power Steering O-Ring service bulletin linked from JustAnswer to my Acura dealer, and not only did they no-charge the o-ring, they also replaced the power steering pump at no cost.

Gary RStevenson Ranch, CA

Wonderful service, prompt, efficient, and accurate. Couldn't have asked for more. I cannot thank you enough for your help.

Mary C.Freshfield, Liverpool, UK

This expert is wonderful. They truly know what they are talking about, and they actually care about you. They really helped put my nerves at ease. Thank you so much!!!!
