Customer Question
Goodn morning, I have a Honda...
Goodn morning,
I have a Honda Accord. I drove to the store, car was running fine. I come back out and car is not running at all. When I turn the key the car there is absolutely no power. The car does nothing. Gage’s don’t come on, radio won’t come on, windows won’t come down, but horn,alarm, and lights seem to work fine. With the key turn to on in the ignition the car will not go into neutral.
I checked the battery and it is fine, I tried to jump it and it did nothing still. I hope you can help me. Thanks

I don’t have the money for that...Please help me...I’ve provided you with the best information I can. Let me know if you can’t help me with this so I can get a refund on my money. Thanks
Mechanic for Honda: Pete, Auto Service Technician replied 10 months ago

No problem on the phone call we can continue here.If you did not see my last reply I was asking if you had a test light or multi meter to test electrical with?

This sounds like a fault with the electronic ignition switch failing suddenly as I have seen and had to replace before but we need to do some testing to be sure.Let me know if you have any of these components to test with.If not we can try a different route.

Thanks Pete

Sounds good

O.k. you see that black cover between the relays ( the little boxes ) and the small fuses in your picture.There is a number 50 on it.That is where the 50 amp fuse is located.I do not recall for sure but see if that cover comes off to access that 50 amp fuse and let me know.

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
