A fastener by fastener tutorial for testing, removing, and installing an ignition switch on a Honda Accord.
I cover how to cause an intermittent switch to act up, test it for continuity to verify it's faulty, and how to remove the cylinder assembly from the vehicle so the electrical switch can be removed.
Then I cover the 1990s to 2000s Honda ignition switch recalls and the special part numbers that go with them and reinstallation of the cylinder assembly to the vehicle.
The shear bolt diameter and thread pitch is M8 X 1.25.

Discussion about this Video:
I feel like I should have made this video a while ago but the opportunity
never came up. Since I had this RL in my shop that had a check engine
light AND an ABS light I thought it was a perfect opportunity to put this
video together. I get asked all the time about my 'special tool' and it's
really nothing more than a Honda 2 pin connector with the input wires
soldered together. These connectors might be harder to find than you think
but if you run across a junk honda and one of these is on the harness grab
it. Even if you don't have the tool a paper clip or piece of wire will do
the exact same thing so don't sweat it if you don't have the tool because
shorting the connector is all you need to do.
I hope you find this video helpful.

No Crank, No Start Diagnosis - EricTheCarGuy

Whenever you have a no start condition when attempting to start your
vehicle it's important to make the distinction between "no crank, no start"
and "crank, no start" situations as they are treated differently. This
video covers what I do when confronted with a 'no crank, no start'
situation and in this case it's a worst case scenario so be sure to watch
till the end.

Honda Accord main relay replacement
First of all I have now learned that the part that I called "power
steering" Is actually the CRUISE CONTROL. Thank you all who noticed and
corrected my misinformation.
I was having trouble with my '91 Honda Accord starting. I would turn the
key, the engine would crank, but it would not start. I was told to remove
my battery cable for a few min to reset the computer. And voila! It
started. This happened 3 times in a week.
After much researching, one solution kept coming up, the main relay
assembly. It is the part that controls the signal to the fuel pump. It
took very little time or tools. The part that was hard was getting to it.
It was under the dash to the left of the steering wheel waaay up in the
dash. It took some yoga moves, but I had it out and back in in about 35
min. I used a 10mm socket wrench with an extension and a small flat head
