have 98 accord that wont turn over could this be the chip in the key or should i be looking at something else in the security system.
battery is good lights work, starter is good as well as all connections & fuses
does this car have a starter relay and if so were is it. does any one know how i can reset the security system
hope fully some can shed some light cars been done a few months now

Can you hear your crankshaft rotating?

How did you test your battery? It should read around 12.6 votls.

Do you have fuel?

Do you get spark?

Good luck,

Sam

checked with a battery load tester all is well12.6 volts
there are lights but starter does not engage or even attempt to turn over
like some thing on security systeme is triped to shut starting down

Do you get spark? If there is no spark it could be your alarm. Is it aftermarket or OEM?

You said the starter was good at first, then you say it wont do any thing. If that's the case have some one hit while you are attempting to start it. A wooden hammer handle works good, just try not to use some thing metal. If the starter is working and cranking but not starting it could be either your ignition switch or main relay. The main relay controls the fuel system. When you turn the key on you should hear it click under the dash(above the hood release).
