    I'm having the problem right now. Today I drove my car home and put it in the garage. About
    an hour later, I tried to start it and it just clicked. The battery is fine, but the car won't
    come close to turning over. When I turn the key, I get only a click. I hope I'm part of a recall.

  • I had the same problem. Car would start. I would run down to 7-11 get out, come back and no start. Finally took it to a mechanic, they had it for a week. Turns out Honda has a safety feature built into the engine that if you are in a wreck and the car it turned over. It will detect that and shut off the fuel pump. Well turns out they can go bad, from heat. The mechanic said I had two options. a 25 dollar fix or a $600 fix. I chose the $25. They simply took that sensor and grounded it to the frame. The $600 fix was to purchase a new sensor and harness.

    It cuts out while driving on the streets or the freeway. Sometimes in will start up right away, others may take a few attempts to get it going.

    While attemting to start the engine the securety key light (green)is flashing and the car will not start. I've tried to wiggle the ignition key while starting but this made no difference. I can start the car only if I turn the ignition key completely off and go for another restart. The securety key light (green)is supose to blink 3 to 4 times and then go out after you turn the ignition key on. This is the self test and securety check of the key. Tje car has also cut off while driving. I have replaced the ignition backing switch $85.00

    Ignition switch gone. Engine won't turn over and sometimes if you put the key in the key lock gently it will turn over. Awkward job but a quick fix

    car would just die and not start for awhile. Found out that it was the ignition rod in the steering column. It was not an expensive fix.

    The car just quietly stalls out, usually at a stop light or when accelerating, all the dash lights go dark and the green security light in the dash starts flashing. After a minute or so, the lights will come back on and the car will start. Had the ignition switch replaced (this was the second time, and not covered by the recall) and it's been fine thus far.
