Customer Question
I have a 2006...

I have a 2006 Ridgeline that wont start. I parked it this evening and went to pull it in garage and nothing. All the dash lights come on but no cranking. No clicking at starter. Nothing. Fuel pump pressures up. Battery is good. Could it be the Neutral pos switch is faulty? Or the immobilizer around the switch is bad? The green key light comes on and goes off like normal but when I turn off ignition and pull key out it blinks 5 times. Is this normal? I've never noticed this before.

Mechanic's Assistant: Cars do make very odd noises -- They help the mechanics figure out what's wrong. They are terrific with my old Grand Cherokee. Are you hoping to fix this yourself?

Yes

Mechanic's Assistant: Great! What have you tried so far?

Checking the batt. voltage. Changing the starter relay.

Mechanic's Assistant: Is there anything else the Honda Mechanic should be aware of about your Honda?

The TPMS light stays on. No big deal

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!!!!
