    as of 2 weeks ago my Element started acting weird. Sometimes it would turn over VERY slowly and then die.

  6. 03 Honda Element Won't Start

    Problems & Issues
    I have a 2003 with roughly 27,000 miles on it. About a month ago I noticed that the car sometimes wouldn't start right away. At times I'd turn the key and the engine would try to start, but then fail. I'd wait a few minutes and try again and I usually got lucky and it would start. Two weeks...
  7. Imobilizer system engages without warning

    Problems & Issues
    I have a reoccurring problem with the horn blaring/lights flashing as if my '07 SC thinks its being stolen.

  9. 2003 Honda Element EX Electrical Issue...?

    Problems & Issues
    The Element basically starts when it feels like it :razz: No, but there doesn't seem to be a discernible common denominator for why it won't start, when it won't start. We replaced the starter less than 6 mths and just replaced the battery less than a mth ago. The possibility of a bad solenoid...
  10. Sluggish ignition/E won't start

    Problems & Issues
    My E is often very sluggish when I start it up. Every couple of weeks it won't start at all. It sounds like the battery is low and can't quite crank over. I can wait a couple minutes, try it again and then it'll start up fine. I had a mechanic check it out and they told me that it was the...
