    Default 1996 Honda Passport V6 won't start

    I thought it was the starter so I changed it out. Battery is full. When
    the key is turned, The inside relay clicks, I've changed out the relay in
    the engine compartment. I've checked the fuse in the fuse panel. It's
    almost like the power is never getting all the way to the starter. All
    other aspects look good from what I've checked.

    Any ideas? Please help, really can't afford a shop, but need it quickly.

    Hi,
    If you think that, then how about checking the battery cables to make
    sure they are in good shape making an good connection.

    Yeah I've checked that too. And BTW, I've also run the gear shifter
    through all settings while trying the ignition just to see if it was that
    switch. Nothing.

    I just don't get it.

    Thanks
    Jack

    I guess you have to use a meter or test light to trace back from the
    starter solenoid to see where you lose the 12v from the ignition switch.

    It might be a worn ignition switch,or the main relay is bad.
    (that can be resoldered,if you know how to solder)
