2004 Honda Pilot won't start unless yellow check engine light on
I have a new battery, starter and alternator, but sometimes (especially in
warmer weather?) the car will not start. No noise, nothing. If I unlock the
position of the steering wheel and push it up and down until the yellow start
engine light comes on, it will then start. Sometimes just cuts off when
driving, and have to go through same scenario. I believe it is an electrical
problem maybe in the steering column? Any suggestions?
I agree. This could be a broken wire or loose connector in the column. But this could also be a broken ignition switch, especially with the fact that the car shuts off during driving. Electrical contacts in the switch might be failing where just hitting a little bump or turning the car could cause the contacts to open.
I am taking the car to an auto electric place this week and will definitely ask about the ignition switch also. Thanks so much!
