Asked by jaxmthemirc Mar 25, 2015 at 03:26 AM about the 1994 Honda Accord EX

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

94 Accord - Won't start, turn key, all lights go out. Wiggle battery cable, power
restored, try to turn key, lights go out, rinse and repeat.
Happened earlier today, wiggled cable, car started, but now sitting in driveway it is
dead. It is not too cold at the moment either, been driving it fine all winter.
Has had new starter and alternator in last six months.
Lights do not dim when "reconnecting battery" or anything, simply cuts off.

Bad or dirty battery cables, make sure the connections are shiney clean, none of the black corrosion, if they are clean then run a voltage drop on the cables, you could have corrosion inside the cables themselves.
