wow thats crazy wish u good luck
dear god i though i had problems lol good luck dude - hoping for the best
Thanks, I've dealt with wiring problem on many cars so its really nothing new to me. I just wish it wasn't so bloody cold outside. I used to have 24/7 access to a warm mechanic bay with a lift. I quit that job as a grease monkey to get get an education and now I'm an Engineer. Problem is I've seen too many incompetent car mechanics and I hate paying someone to do something I would prefer to do myself. Next year I'll be in the market for a house with room for a 3 car garage and lift.. Sorry, enough of my ranting.wow thats crazy wish u good luck
Thanks LudaPower for the info and link. The part breakdown was a big help! How much CND did you pay for your ignition switch?Mine still does it, rarely. It mostly happens in summer when it's hot out.
I had the ignition recall done also but bought a new ignition switch anyways just to check but it does the same thing.
I'm 90% sure it's the immobilizer unit.
The problem I'm having with testing it is that it's an intermittent problem, it never happens when you want it to and always happens where you really don't want it to.
Also, even if I did figure out that it was the immobilizer, I still wouldn't replace it since it would cost several hundred dollars just to fix an intermittent rare problem.
Brand new Immobilizer with keys is 205$.
Add the cost of cutting the keys so they work with your door/trunk locks and reprogramming the ecu so it works with the new immobilizer. Also if you have Honda install it for you (the immobilizer) it'll cost more.
So look at about 300-350$ just for that one problem.
All this of course if the problem is the immobilizer unit.
is this what your talking about?yes the immobilizer is still there under the dash on the driver's side you have to bypass the starter kill by shorting the blue and the grey wire together to enable the starter.
I paid about 40-50$ canadian for the ignition switch from here:Update

I love you in the most manly of ways... !
the immobilizer is under the dash mounted to the left of the steering colum all you have to do is poke your head under the dash and look it's a black 2" x 2" square box with a white sticker on it with a Fcc id and Honda lock printed on it and is held in with 2 10mm bolts with a grey plug and a white plug. the 2 wires are a lite blue and the grey wire cut and connect together and leave the gray plug unpluged so the green light won't flash anymore.
yes it's the mobilizer board A0 from doctronics it disables the immobilizer inside the ECU that locks out fuel and spark. all you have to do is enable the starter .there is another solution on the market that i've found on honda-tech you can just simply unsolder the immobilizer part in the ECU then install a chip from a website that will disable the immobilizer for good and it cost about 35 euro plus shipping. I just bought it this week and ill install it as soon as i receive it. My car isnt starting at this moment because of this freaking immobilizer module ....
Okay I connected the grey and blue wire together and left it unplug green key went away it turn over but now I have no spark but if I take the negative off the battery and touch it on and off the battery my coil spark how I fix that nowThat makes sense. If its only the starter kill then I should be able to start the car by connecting the starter solenoid to 12+ with the key in the on position. I'll try that and then hunt down the blue and gray wires from the immobilizer.
