Customer Question
Well I just bought...

Well I just bought it and the previous owner never took the key out of the ignition and would lock it with the key and the clicker and when I pull the key out of the ignition it wont start or I can't get it back in to start it

Mechanic's Assistant: Have you checked the battery, particularly the terminal connections? Are they corroded?

Yes I have they are not corroded the car sounds like it wants to start but it doesn't fully turn over

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the model/year of your Honda?

2003 it has an alarm the steering wheel won't lock in place either due to the fact that he never took the key out of the ignition and pushing the button to unlock the alarm doesn't help either

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your vehicle yourself? What have you tried so far?

We're just trying to replace the lower half of the ignition switch we don't know how to get the studs out two studs

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

That's it

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!!!!
