Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a 99 Honda accord Lx automatic. It would
start but not stay running. We taught it was the
starter so bought one and changed it but still doing
the same thing. Can you help us figure it out?

Possibly failed ignition switch. The electronic part of the ignition. Common problem in Honda. When it shuts off do the dashlights go on and off. The switch attached to back of lock cylinder. You will have to remove covers from steering column to access

So, we went to the junkyard and got a used throttle body. Changed the old one out and put the used one in. The car started and stay running it has been running since yesterday evening with no problems, so we're assuming that was the problem. The trottle body has fusses in it and must had went bad. Great car to have just needs taking care of.
