Question about 1998 Honda Accord
98 Honda Accord DX 4-cyl manual tranny. The battery is about 4 years old, and when this problem doesn't appear, the car starts completely normally. But every once in while, when the key is turned, the starter clicks once, and you get nothing. It may take a couple of tires, but it eventually will start without hesitation. I'm confident it's not the battery because I'm not getting the typical dead battery machine gun clicks. It's a single click. It can happen while the car has been running or sitting cold; it makes no difference. Clutch is fully depressed to the floor when starting.
Researching these boards, it looks like its a starter issue. Second opinions?
Check battery terminals and make sure they are free of corrosion and are tightly secure on battery. If all is good it may be the stater that's sticking. or maybe clutch safety switch on clutch pedal is going bad. Good Luck contact me if you need more help
