Question about 1999 Honda Civic

99 Honda Civic won't start

Starts fine for awhile then I turn it over and all it does is make a single tap sound from the starter also there is a low click coming from the glove box area. Checked battery and alternator all ok . Suspect starter or solenoid but I remeber I had to replace a module in an older Honda I owned that was in the glove box but cannot remember what it was called??? Thanks

It may be caused by a faulty ignition switch located where the ignition key is inserted. there may be some connections burnt and causing shorteges when starting. hondas are well known for having these cheap end switches....

2005 honda civic replaced starter .it started right up for a couple of days now just cranks and won't start?


Tapping the starter is just a test,then you replace it as you did

So the starter issue is resolved

No check to see if you have fuel pressure at the motor
when you cycle the key

Also check for spark or injector pulse when cranking

If you have a relay for starter switch it with a similar one

92 civic wont start... i am getting power but will not turn over. i dont think its alternator but never know


If you are getting full power then locate the starter and get something that you can tap on the starter with while someone else tries to start it.
If it starts when you do this it means that it may start several more times for you or maybe not at all the next time you try. But it will mean that you need to install a new starter very shortly.

OK i have a 91 honda civic hatchback and the engine was rebilt..it runs fine...however when i start it cranks for awhile before it starts...the starter and battery are fine however the carborator sticks...


That flap is automatic the choke. Not the throttle. Cleaning it should restore normal operation. Avoid spray plastic parts if there is any such as plastic bushing used in carburator linkage, other than that I cant think of any bigger underlying problem. Avoid prolonged high speed on rebuilt engines untill its broken in(500 miles)

My 91 civic runs and drives good but sometimes i shut it off and it wont start back up 4 awhile and then i hear a click and it starts back up please help


check your solenoid on your starter, usually when it get hot it fail until it cool off. a sign of starter going bad if you have to wait til the starter cool off before you can restart the car again. also check contact to the starter. if you having problems getting the starter to work you can get a small hammer and lightly tap the starter, 90% of the time it will kick over.

Starting problems


if this problem persists then you could check a few things on it, like on the times when its not even making a noise when trying to turn the key, use rubber/wooden object and tap the starter motor but not touching the contacts on the back. if this amkes it spring into life then it will be your starter motor if this does nothing then it will be a dodgy battery supply. does it also make like a screaching noise while trying to start? if so then definitely your starter motor
