2003 Honda Element Q&A
2003 Honda Element Question: Element won't start
Please help. Trying to start my 2003 Element...nothing. Has a realitively new battery...had starter replaced 3 months ago. Horn and lights work. Power locks work.....radio will not come on...power windows not working, and I can't get it to shift out of park so I can roll it out of the garage! I really need some guidance hear!

Ignition key in the first position white, and black/yellow wire should have power, key in second position white, black/yellow and black/red wire should be live, key in third position white, black/yellow, black/red, should be live and the black/white wire then sends power to the starter relay and on to the starter. But my guess is the 50 Amp fuse #20 is blown. - patrick mannion
