Ok, and the issue is that it will not crank, correct? you turn the key and nothing happens?

mechanic said something on the battery casing was corroded and he spliced it but still no response.
Mechanic for Honda: AZTechBrian, ASE Certified Technician replied 2 years ago

There is power to everything else in the car I assume?

Do you hear even as much as a click when you attempt to start the engine?

I don't but the mechanic still has it and says he is stumped. We have already paid him some and he has had it for 9 days. I also not sure what to do. haven't much money.
Mechanic for Honda: AZTechBrian, ASE Certified Technician replied 2 years ago

Ok. I would like to know how he determined that the starter is ok to rule it out. Was it replaced recently?

My first suspicion would be the starter or a bad cable connection if the relay is new. Has he checked to see if he is getting power at the starter when attempting to crank the engine?

I am going off line. Will ask these questions of him. thanks
Mechanic for Honda: AZTechBrian, ASE Certified Technician replied 2 years ago

I am sorry. I just noticed your comment about what to do. If he has had it for 9 days and is no further ahead, I would suggest calling around and finding another shop. IF that's feasible

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

Mary C.Freshfield, Liverpool, UK
