    My 91 CRX wont start. All I get when I turn the key is a buzzing sound, and I can hear the fuel pump turn on. I pulled the starter and battery off and had them both tested and both tested good. I have tried another ignition switch, main relay, starter relay, and clutch switch. The car still will not start. :mad::mad::mad:

    The check engine light comes on when I turn the key and then it goes out. It's solid while it's on, and not flashing any trouble codes.

    :confused::confused::confused: WTF. The car radomly started. No parts have been changed, and no loose grounds or bad connections were found. The only thing I did was disconnect the #1 spark plug wire to check for spark and the car tried to start when I turned the key. I reconnected it and the car started up. I haven't been able to get the car to turn over for three days. I have no answer for why it wouldn't start for the past three days????

    Yes it starts now but that wire was not loose. I took it loose to check for spark, and the car turned over when I turned the key. Then I reconnected it and the car started up. I didn't change any parts on the car, didn't find any loose wires or bad connections or bad grounds. It started up out of the blue. I had to spend $80 to have it towed home.
