Default I Have a 1994 HONDA ACCORD EX .NOW the problem is to get it to start.it cut off while i was driving?

I NOTICE THAT MY ABS AND GAS INDICATED LIGHTS WERE FADING IN AND OUT AND THEN THE CAR JUST SHUTS OFF. NOW the car wants to start but it can't I notice the sun roof and power window will only work if l keep the key in the position of on but if i let go of the key nothing will work except the radion and lights come on horn works . DO I have a shortage to cause this

The ignition switch is composed of several components. It sounds like the electrical component is bad. I had this happen to my 1993 accord ex. After I start the car, I have to hold the key between position 2 (on) and position 3 (starting car). I had to drive while holding the key in, otherwise the engine would cut out.Your radio, lights, and horn work...as if the key was in position 1. In any event, I'd blame the ignition switch before blaming the car has a short.

I have seen this problem several times on this year and model and it was the ign. switch causing the issue.

It has nothing to do with the timing belt!The ignition switch is a common issue with Hondas when they get to that 12-18 year old point and lots of miles. You probably have near 200k if not more, right? Try disconnecting the battery (-) terminal and crank the key back and forth several dozen times. This effectively cleans the contacts somewhat. once you do this, reconnect the battery and see if it improved. If it did, you can be reasonably sure it is the switch.Other things to check: corroded battery terminals, all the engine grounds in place
