Check your ground cable from the battery. Make sure it and the ground from the starter are firmly grounded onto a clean surface.

Sounds like you may need a new starter. If the battery is new, and the alternator is throwing sufficient amps to keep the battery alive I would gravitate towards the starter is all other systems seem to be operating. First step, I'd remove the negative terminat on the battery, and inspect the condition of the positive battery cable. I'm assuming it's good at the battery post, otherwise you would have noticed it when the battery was changed. With the negative cable disconnected remove the positive cable from the starter post and clean it with sandpaper or steel wool. Inspect the other wires connecting to the starter as well. Once you have cleaned all of the connection, replace them on the starter. Then replace the negative cable to the battery terminal and try starting the engine. No noise usually indicates a bad solenoid and/or bad starter. If you opt to remove the starter you can have it tested at AutoZone for free before buying a new starter. Dealer cost to remove & replace a starter will start around $400. The part should be available at a discount auto parts store for arount $125.

Hi there You have a starter solenoid problem there. If it's a manual transmission, try this quick fix - switch off the ignition, put the car in gear and push the car back or forward a little. What this is doing is turning the engine flywheel a small amount. Then try starting the car as you would nromally. If it starts then your sorted. If the clicking is still there you then need to check all the electrical connections on the starter motor, in particular the 'earth' connnection between the engine and the chassis - you might have a bad earth. That will give you the clicking sound on the starter or starter soliniod. Hope this helps. Best regards, Scottech

The clicking is the solenoid in the starter it works ...now get a voltmeter DMM put it on volts put key to start check ground pin on ground batt terminal positve test probe touch the back of starter wires check the voltage going to starter should be 12.some change +4
touch positve probe on battery and neg probe on neg terminal try to start if your volts drop under 11 volts your battery is weak... check your grounds as well all of them ...follow ground cables to the chassis connections..

You need to check the connections between the battery and the car. Check both the positive and negative ends where they meet the car and attach to the battery.

My daughter owns a 2001 Honda Civic EX. After


The exact problem happened to me...

Opposed to a blown fuse, most likely the drained/dead battery caused the radio to "reset" itself. You should have a 5 digit (or 4) code that was provided by the dealer or owner. Most owners write it down somewhere on their owners manual. If not, the dealer can give you the code. Once the code is entered, you back in business!

Good luck!
