    I'm new here and I've come down to a consistent problem that I'm stumped on. Since I bough my 02 rsx I've had issues with ignition on/off at random times, magically its disappeared for some time and just recently popped up again.

  2. Problems & Solutions RSX
    So this has happened twice over the course of a month. I’ll turn the ignition and the rpms will hover under 500RPMs and then shut off. Sometimes the oil light comes on but not consistently. If I let the car sit for about half an hour it usually starts up without a problem. Any thoughts?

    I just bough a 04 EP off some dude about a month ago. When i got it I had to jimmy the key in the ignition whenever I wanted to start the car.

Does anyone have anything to elaborate on this with? I'm really curious if it's the same way for the kpro or for the...
