My 91 accord suddenly wouldn't start, soon as I jumpstart it it starts perfectly. I bought new battery it started on own perfectly soon as I turned it off again dead.It starts with a jump every time yet after I turn it off its dead so I had alternator tested at auto zone alternator tested good. It doesn't die slowly or die at all once started runs great yet turn it off its dead won't restart but always instantly starts with jump remove cables and it still runs my battery was brand new started once drove 2 miles turned it off and wouldn't restart yet it does start perfect with a jump this doesn't fit alternator bad battery bad or both. Cause 3 stores tested alternator and it tests perfect. Do you know what's wrong im handicapped on social security I can't afford process of elimination. What's wrong with my Honda sir

Thank you for using Just Answer.I will do my best to answer your question.When it would not start did your headlights and all eletrical items still work?When you say "dead" do you mean the battery seemed dead.When you turned the ignition on to start the engine did it click or turn the starter at all?

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!!!!
