I have a 1992 honda accord EX. It had some problems staying "on". I have to keep cranking it then it would stay running. Yesterday I was on my way home, my car started acting up. The speedometer and rpm needle started acting up. Moving up and down. The dash board lights dimmed then shut off. My car will only stay on if I hold the key in the on position. I have a 5speed. As soon as I let go of the key it shuts off. It will stay on only if I hold the key. What's wrong???
I`d say your battery is already dead(not able to hold charge) the car requires the continuous flow of power from the altinator. if the the power dies then your altinator is not supplying it properly. get it checked and replaced if nesesary. ... 1992 Honda Accord

I have a 1999 Plymouth Voyager mini-van - 4 cylinder, 2.4 engine. It drives good but the gauges are not work sometimes. The temperature gauge stays at zero; the odometer/speedometer either stays at zero or flips over to the max speed level and stays there; the gas meter/gauge also stays are zero (empty) or full. So not only do I not know at what speed I'm driving, I have to constantly worry that the gas is empty. Sometimes a bump on the road will get them working again, but not all the times. Ca

2002 Jeep Liberty service engine light stays on; and abs and brake lights stay on. Replaced cracked hose to fuel tank vent underneath in the back between tank and differential. Still stays on code says something about loose gas cap; replaced cap and still stays on. ABS lights came on shortly after removing boat from water and the speedometer does not work either. Perhaps rear sensor is shot? How are they removed? Is there a screw; or do they just thread into the to of pumpkin?

Most likely cause is a leaking vacuum hose on your air intake. It's a common problem on tributes but should be easy and cheap to fix. Look for cracks, holes, or roughness on the small black pipes near your engine and air intake and while you're the ... 2003 Mazda Tribute
1999 GMC Sierra 1500 5.3L...Starts but won't stay running. Disconnected the Catalytic Converter and there was no change, changed the fuel filter, map sensor, still didn't stay running. Changed 4 of the 8 plugs, stayed running until I got home, replaced other 4 plugs and within the start testing time, the new plugs are dirty, dirty. It's as if the choke is stuck. It still doesn't stay running. Any help would be much appreciated

I have a five cyl 2004 Chevy Colorado that will not stay running on a cold morning. (anything below freezing) The truck will start and then shut off within 10 seconds. The engine light comes on and after I wait 45 seconds the engine will start but shut off again after 10 or 15 seconds. If the temperature gets down near zero I may need to go through this process 20 times before the truck will stay running. When the truck does stay running the engine light will stay on for an hour or so and

I have a 2001 Nissan Maxima that will not stay running in the cold weather. Whenever it gets below about 40 degrees outside I can start it up just fine, but then it will immediately die out after a few seconds. If I push on the gas pedal it will stay running and once the car warms up it will stay running. I have tried a few different things but nothing seems to work. It still won't stay running in the cold...and it sucks not being able to warm up your car in the morning. Any thoughts or

Cant get back door to stay closed . The lock is stuck in locked position I think and the door is open. When I go to close it, it is'nt staying closed. Had to duck tape it to stay closed. LOL! I keep locking and unlocking with automatic button, looks like its in the lock is the same position as other doors. It 's not staying closed. ....Any suggestions????
It sounds to me ( correct me if I'm wrong ) like the door latch on the side vertical edge of the door is in the LOCKED POSITION. In order to unlock it perform the following. First electrically with the LOCK button UNLO ... 1997 Chevrolet Lumina
The ABS light stays on. At first it was intermittent. The Traction Control message stays lit too, and has been on simultaneously with the ABS light. At first it was just on for a drive and then did not stay on next time. Progressed to point it just stays on -- both ABS and Traction Control -- all the time. When the trouble began, it began with TC operation when not called for (gentle braking in dry condition) and the ratcheting brrrrrrring noise was heard when the ABS and TC came on and
Sounds like the abs sensor is malfunctioning and needs replacing.. To verify this.. remove the abs fuse in the fuse panel below the hood.. This will disable the abs system and your brake would work as if it was not abs .. Drive the vehicle and see ho ... 1999 Ford Crown Victoria
Trying to remove head to replace head gasket on 2.0 L non-turbo engine on '97 Mitsubishi Eclipse. My Haynes manual says to remove the intake manifold stays and the head can be removed without removing the intake manifold from the head. It does not mention the black plastic box that is mounted over these stays. I took off three nuts that seem to hold this box in place, but it does not come off. What is this box and how do I remove it to get access to the manifold stays?

Heated seats I try and turn on driver side heated seat and it turns off immediately. Passenger side can turn on and it stays on. If i press the driver side button to turn it on it turns the passenger side off and never allows for driver side to stay on. Passenger side will stay on as long as you dont mess with the driver side button.

Dago101p thanks for the prompt response. not the temperature gauge but the temperature slider. the gauge is working fine, infact it stays right in the middle suggesting that the engine is not overheating. if the engine is not overheating why is the radiator fan staying on after the engine is shut off? the fan stays on only for about a minute or so.

I have a 2000 VW Jetta. The high beams only work when I pull the level towards me (to flash them), but not when I set them to stay on.

Water Temperature I have a 1986 Nissan Sentra (168,000 miles) and when I start it up and begin driving within three to four miles the water temperature rises up to near H (hot) stays there for just a few seconds then gradually retreats to a normal (a little over 50%) level. Should I be concerned? It does this from a cold start only. While the car's engine stays warm the water temperature stays normal.

I have a '99 jeep and the air bag light stays on. First you hear the chime and then the light will stay on. I believe it's a connection somewhere because it used to chime and go off. Then it would sometimes go on with the chime. Within the last yr. it got more frequent. And now it goes off with all the other dash lights and then bing and it will stay on. Any answers...........
