Car staring

Asked by Dec 28, 2015 at 05:04 PM about the 2004 Honda Accord EX w/ Leather

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My 04 v4 honda accord won't start. I have power,
all my electronics work. But when I go start it it
makes the starting noise but won't start. I changed
my spark plugs. They were for my car spaced out
and everything so I don't know how that could be a
problem. I re-checked my work to see if it was the
spark plugs but doesn't seem like it. Do you think
it's my starter then?

First you have to make sure the plugs are firing spray some starter fluid or throttle body cleaner into throttle. Remove hose from throttle spray with fluid reinstall hose and try to start vehicle if it starts then shuts off you are getting fire you have a fuel problem like a bad fuel pump maybe. If vehicle does not start either way post back and we will go from there.

Is the check engine light on ?


First check your fuel pump fuse,then check electronic fuel injection relay,if its bad replacement NAPA number for it is AR 6229,you can get from any NAPA stores and last check fuel pump relay,replacement NAPA part number is ECH AR 6234.Fuel pump relay is blue color and located on fuse box under your car instrument panel,electronic fuel injection relay its light brown color and located in the same fuse box second row from the bottom in center position.You can also watch video on YouTube name is "2004 Honda accord slow start and efi relay problem ",i hope you can fix that.
