My car was driving fine the other day tried to start it up it want turn over..i hanve a 96 honda accord in its making a ticking noise like on the left side of the motor ... the light in everything comes on but the motor belt not turn just a tick noise
Took my suzuki carry to be looked at because it woudnt turn over...(clicking sound from starter)...mechanic tested the alternator and found the alternator was the cause of the fault because the alternator was producing 17 volts instead of 13.4 volts thus frying the starter motor....be sure to check the voltage from alternator is not to high, or damage to the the starter motor will just re occur due to to much voltage from the alternator.

This may be due to a bad neutral safety switch, is this car automatic or manual transmission?
If automatic try to start in neutral and if manual try to locate switch on clutch pedal and use a jumper wire to jump connector for switch, NOTE; If switch is jumped car will start in gear with pedal not pushed down and car will take off so this is just as a test not a repair!!!!!, good day
Sounds either like the solenoid on the starter is bad or the starter its self.First try turning on your head lights and then trying to start it.If it starts then you have some bad connections either on the battery or the starter. next if that doesnt work Try hitting the starter with a hammer while someone else cranks it.If it starts then the starter is bad..
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
The most likely cause of your problem is your alternator and/or battery. You can have them tested at most any auto parts store for free. One of these two things will fix this type of problem 90% of the time.
