If you have the 4.6 northstar, the starter is under the intake manifold. That's right, it's INSIDE the engine.....

2003 accord 4cylinder wont start doesnt turn the battery is good


check battery connections, if they are good check the power supply from the battery to starter motor (thick cable), if this is good have someone crank it while you check the signal wire to the starter motor(thin wire), if this is good replace the starter motor. u could tap the starter motor with a hammer if accessible while someone is cranking it, sometimes this will get the starter going again but will still need replacing

CAR WONT START


Sounds like a faulty starter solenoid or bad starter.Take a hammer and tap on the center of the starter housing while someone else tries to start it.If it starts then its your starters bendix that is bad in the starter. Make sure your wheels are chocked.

Starter will not crank over. Battery is fully charged. Starter was tap on before so it got started.


So you had to tap it to start before, now it wont start even with a tap. ?
The starter was bad, now is worse. (Usually this tap on it solution means the armature is warped. [main shaft] Could ONLY get worse)
You can whack it real good to maybe start it once or twice more, but you do need to replace the starter !

I have had problems with truck starting


When it wont crank, tap on the starter with a hammer, wrench ect. if it starts then, most likely need the starter replaced. If it grunts, its getting power. Make sure the battery is good. to check, take a voltage reading should be 12.7 volts on a fully charged battery, take a reading when starting, should not go below 10volts.

Car wont start


Does the battery have enough capacity to turn over the engine though? Even flat car batteries will still power the radio. The best way would be to jump start the car uing a set of jumper leads. If it starts you know it is the battery that needs replacing.

If it still wont turn over then it is most likely the solenoid in your starter motor. You can often tap the starter motor with a hammer and free the solenoid as a temporary fix. The starter motor is loacted at the back of the engine on the bell housing if rear wheel drive, or around the tranmission if a front wheel drive.
