In the winter we keep our Honda Fit in the garage. Two days ago we tried to start it and it wouldn't even turn over. So I jumped it and it started and I told my wife to drive it around the block to charge the battery up. We put it back in the garage and the next day we tried to start it and now all it does is make this wierd rapid clicking noise when we try to start the ignition. What's the deal?

Re: 2007 Honda Fit
The battery may need to be replaced, the battery is not holding a charge or you didn't run car long enough. Try boosting again and let the car run for about 1/2 an hour to 1 hr. Then try to start the next day. If it doesn't start you will need a new battery. Even when you don't drive this vehicle especially in the winter time you should start this car and let it run for about 10 minutes once every week. Good Luck contact me if you need more help

A battery from 07 is still decently new to be that bad, but I would check the alternator first, just get the car running and unhook the positive cable from the battery, if the car dies the alternator is bad.
Hello, you may not be getting a signal from the ignition switch to the starter relay. Have you checked the starter relay? Also try jumping the relay with a small jumper wire & see if the starter will engage. I have found this to be the problem on a lot of the early hardbody trucks. Let me know the results. I hope this helps.
You need to remove the battery cables and clean the connections with a wire battery terminal cleaning tool. Then start the car and check the voltage at the battery with a multimeter. It should be between 13.5-16 volts. Any less and the alternator is defective. If this all checks out and you are 100% sure nothing is on drawing power then the battery more than likely has a dead cell. Remove the battery and take it to your parts store and have it tested. You will probably need a new battery.
your battery is dead. The electric clicking is a telltale sign that the battery is weak or depleted and does not have enough juice to turn over the starter. This is extremely common when the car is left to sit for an extended period without being used.
the clicking you hear is the starter solenoid trying to engage the starter, but the battery is to weak to do so.
There are a couple solutions. First you can get a set of jumper cables and jump the s2000 with anther battery. Once the car is running the battery will alutomatically begin to recharge.
the second is to buy and use whats called a trickle charger or 'battery tenderizer' this is a small device that you plug into the car and it will automatically keep the battery charged over extended periods of time without the risk of over charging the battery. If you use one of these it will also slowly charge yoru current battery enough overnight for it to work in the morning.
