    My new car just received today will not start after parking in garage for
    less than two hrs.

    This car was driving/starting normally during the day and it starts, stops
    several times with no problem.

    The battery feels strong and starter is working normally.
    It cranks but no fire up. Right before starting I heard a long shooo sound.
    All the stereo and navigation seems OK.
    I have another 05 EX-V6 and it does make the same kind of "shooo" sound,
    just not as loud.

    There is no warning on the instrument panel.
    At the beginning, the gear shift was locked, after releasing it, it shifts
    normally. Tried putting gear in P and N with no vale.

    Is there any "reset" procedure I can try?
    Thank you first.

    I would call the dealer to come and get it, and bring it back when it
    is fixed. I had to do exactly that with a brand new Audi. I called
    the dealer the same night I got it home (barely) and they were there
    the next morning with a flatbed tow truck. I lived 60 miles from the
    dealer. I sure wouldn't mess around trying to fix a brand new car.

  3. Try taking the key off the keychain. A coil around the keyhole fires an
    electromagnetic signal into the key and listens for an encoded signal to
    echo back from a chip in the key's plastic body. The wrong signal will
    cause the car to play dead. Some keychains will absorb or distort the

    If the antitheft chip bothers you, open the key body and pry out the
    little black epoxy box that's jammed in the side of it. Glue it to the
    side of the keyhole and then any properly cut key (or big screwdriver)
    can start the car.

    Are you serious? That easy to get around it? Even in such a new car?

    Here is the response for the same question in another Honda NG.

    It solved my problem, I believe some folks would like to see what was the

    I don't have a manual for a v6, but all Honda manuals should have the
    same section called "Starting the Engine" where they describe starting
    in (extreme) COLD weather, HIGH altitudes, and Flooded. For two of those
    you hold the gas pedal half-way to the floor. For flooded (with too much
    gasoline) you hold the gas pedal to the metal and crank it for up to 15
    seconds at a time. It tells the computer to cut the injectors while the
    engine gets a chance to 'breathe fresh air'.

    Your engine si flooded, use a hair dryer to blow the engine dry.

  7. Well, it's not normally a theft risk because you have to have the
    correctly coded chip. If you have that, it's probably inside a good
    key. Of course, if the owner tapes a chip to the lock cylinder, all
    that is needed is that big screwdriver.
