Buzzing noise when I turn key in ignition?

Recommended Posts

I have a 07 Accord coupe with 35,000 miles - yes! still under warranty - I've experienced this issue 4 times where I turn the key in the ignition, get as far as "accessory" and then hear a buzzing sound coming directly from the ignition. When I turn the key back, then turn the key all the way again, the car starts fine. The first three times were over the course of two months on especially cold days, then it happened again yesterday when it was 60 degrees out. Any insight into what's going on is appreciated - I want to make sure the dealer takes care of anything/ everything, especially if it's major - and since I'm so close to the end of my warranty period (and, no offense to dealers out there, but also because I'm a girl and don't have a clue what goes on under the hood of my car).

It's your Main Relay kicking in. It's the much needlessly-replaced electrical module that tells the fuel pump to start sending dead dinosaur from the tank, and the noise from it is quite normal. You'll notice it more if you turn the key sort of slowly, but you won't notice it at all if you turn the key quickly.

Why not just be decent to people?
