2015 Accord Intermittent start issues

Mechanic's Assistant: Will the headlights turn on? Is the battery fully charged?

Put in new battery

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

Taken to dealer who said it could be an after market Remote Starter causing it. Took it to the original dealer who sold me the car and he says he can't find anything even though it failed once when I first dropped it off.

Hey how are you,I will try to help you with this issue

is there an after market remote starter installed on it now ,did you ask the dealer who sold it ?

did the dealer run a complete scan on the car and gave a scan report with fault found ?

does it have one of these tracking devices that you know off?

what is the mileage on it now ?

lets start here and we go from there

Please let me know

Thank You

it is an after market REMOTE Starter installed when I purchased the car. I asked them to tell me the error codes they were getting....still waiting. No tracking device. Approx 45K miles on car.

I would take it to a stereo shop and have the system removed if the dealer not being helpful here

at 45k I doubt a major issue here

if you get fault code ,post them back here for me and i can help you further

A capable tech with ignition wiring circuit diagram ,can rewire everything back to stock, and that is what you need done here .

the dealer usually do not like to do that and if they do will charge you a lot and tell you no more warranty ,so find a stereo shop or independent repair shop to do it

he probably has a wire connected to the starter solenoid and is making poor or intermittent connection ,that is what i seen them on them when they do that intermittent start and after market system was installed

You are very welcome :)

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!!!!
