Got my 06 Accord V6 EX on March-14, it refused to start right after we drove
25miles back from dealer lot.
Someone recommended the "flood" way described in manual, and it worked.
At end of April, the car did the same thing again. We tried the same
solution but it did not work that time. So, the less than two months new
car was towed to a local Honda dealer. The dealer could not find any
problem except reported that it seems flooded--too much gas on ignition. It
seems that my flood way did make the ignition wet and it left the only sign
of not starting. Computer scan can not find anything wrong!
Still a mystery, why my 06 refused to start occasionally. Yes, it is under
warranty but I lost confidence on this 06. I will not drive it more than
20miles from home in case it needs towing again.
The tow truck guy said he had seen "many" new Accord having similar
symptons. The dealer asked if I drove only a few feet (say from garage to
driveway) because he saw the same problem on some cars and they all pointed
to that common possible reason. Well, my case is definitely different. One
tome drove 3 miles non-stop, the second time drove 7 to 8 miles.
No sign of failure before it happened, engine ran smoothly and powerful. No
idea and never expected it will refuse to start while it was running great
just few minutes/one hour ago...
Any idea, anyone experienced similar problem here?
It appears to me to be a fuel flow problem or a problem related to those
electrical items that have an effect upon the fuel flow. Since the vehicle
is under warranty, take it back to the dealer and request that they have a
mechanic check every item related to fuel flow. Ask for a full report such
as the condition of the fuel pump, main relay , injectors, wiring, fuel
You may want to check this site to see if there were similar issues with
your car and the 2005 6 cyld. Accord:
Ask the service manager to determine if there are any TSBs (technical
service bulletins) related to this issue in your car and the 2005 6 cyld.
Can someone else suggest another site that has TSBs or at least the title
