Car Will Not Start

During the summer we had some problems with our 2003 Honda Accord. The car was towed to a local shop. The starter was replaced. Over the past week, we have been unable to start the care several times. The car would just not turn over. The car was towed to the shop that replaced the starter. The first time, the starter was replaced. The second time (yesterday)that it happened, the car was again towed to the shop. It started right away for them. The car started this morning for our drive to church and then again when we drove home from church. Now it does not want to start again-same symptom?1 Could something be loose?

Try putting the shifter in neutral and then try starting the engine. If the engine starts after doing this, there’s a problem with the park/neutral safety switch.


“NOT STARTING” is a very broad statement. It’s akin to going to the doctor and telling s/him, "Doc, I’m sick! Can you cure me?!"
Details help…to fix you, …or, the car. Is the car cranking, or no? Etc?
