Question about 1996 Honda Civic
There is a clicking noise comming from the glove box when you turn the key all lights on dash work have to push to start wont turn over just here a clicking noise comming fron some thing mounted on right side of interior of glove box.
The clicking sound you heard most likely the starter solenoid engaging the starter. Only in this case it's failing to engage the starter. This is a classic symptom of a low battery. Here's why.
In a perfect world, when you turn the key to start:
If you don't have a voltmeter, what you need to do now is visit an auto parts store (not a shop). Most (in the hope of making a sale) will provide free testing of batteries and charging systems.
What you need is called a "Load Test" on the battery. It simulates the load of an engine being started. This will confirm the battery is good or bad.
Then with the car running, they need to check the voltage to the battery (they will know this). If it's not above +13VDC, the alternator is bad or not connected correctly.
And if it doesn't start, what better place to be?
Let me know what they and you find out by commenting.

This Clicking Noise Is Normal I Drove Myself Crazy On The Same Clicking Sound I Was Ripping Off Panels In The Middle Of The Desert lol. Anyways Its Not It Try Checking Your Starter. Does The Engine Crank At All? If I t Just Goes Click Real Loud It Would Be A Good Indication Its Your Starter. Also Does It Start Sometimes? Or Did It?
