Question type: Maintenance & Repair

We have a Honda Accord EX that sometimes will not run. It turns over fine, but will not run. The problem has been going on for 5 years ( every few months, then weeks, then days), and now it will not start. I thought it was the coil getting hot, replaced that, still did the same thing: just replaced the igniter, fired right up, turned it off, then it won't crank. Any suggestions? Thanks.

Check contacts in the ignition switch.One set will be on in run and another spring loaded return for start.

There's an ignition relay under the hood in a black plastic fuse and relay box, or depending on the year, it could be located in the dashboard - up where Honda Tech's are only meant to be. I think Trebor66 is referring to that when he says contacts.

There's also a pick up in the dis might give issues check to see that there's power to the dis if there is during the problem then its prob the pick up!
