Unable to start.

Home  \  Repairs & Maintenance  \  Unable to start.

Hey there,
I have an 88 Honda Accord LX-i 2 door Automatic Transmission. I am NOT experienced with auto repair or much less maintneance, so bear with me.
So, step by step, here is what has happened thus far.

When I turn the key in the ignition, nothing happens. I jump start the car. Car starts. When I turn off the car, it does not turn back on.

My father suggested I buy a new battery. I did, and had to jump start again. However, the car did start again after I drove around a bit. A few hours later, I try to start the car, no dice. Nothing happens, just like before I bought the new battery.

I jump start again, and when I go above 2000 rpm, the battery light comes on. When idle, the battery light is not on.

Any ideas?

Many Thanks,
hermpes

Why that wasn't made a sticky, I don't know.
