Hello everyone

Have a query regarding my 2005 type S 1.6vtec after being of the road for around 12-18 months I have decided to put my little Honda back on the road I severed me well but has been neglected of late.

I first tried to start the car back up about 6months ago and after a jump start the car started working again, well so I thought I took it around the block and the car suddenly died on me.

Since then I have replaced the battery and now when I go to start it up the engine kicks in then dies after a couple of seconds.

Anybody experienced similar issues or know what could possibly cause this?

I have put around half a tank of fuel back in the car with some redex so don't think it's fuel starvation any other suggestions would be appreciated

your alternator may not be charging if you have a multimeter start the car and see what volts are at the battery terminals should be 13.5 to 14.5 ish if it ran ok before you took it of the road it may have a bad conection start it and rev it
