Question about 1996 Honda Accord

1 Answer


I have a similar problem to another as far as my honda not starting. 2 weeks ago there was some bad corrosion around the battery post and connectors. I cleaned it off and the car immeidately started. Saturday afternoon the car refused to start. I checked under the hood and saw a little bit of corrosion and cleaned that off. However this did not solve the problem. My car still wont start. When I turn the key at first, it sounds like its trying to crank up but doesn't turn over. Now when I turn the key all I hear is a click. The interior lights come on and the battery is strong. What could the problem be? Thanks.

Have you chkd the + pos. connection from the battery to the starter?this could be loose and not giving the starter enuff power to turn the car over,or..if you do get a "click" when you try to start it then it could be silonoid on starter(it has two wires on it and most of the time it is connected to the starter however some cars have them on the side of the engine compartment,those types you can replace without replacing starter as well) if you had corrosion on the pos. terminal and wires it may have corrosion in the wire you cant see,i have seen that a few times.clean or replace the wires that have corrosion in them and try to start it, if no start just the click,try the other option i gave you...
hope this helps you out!!!

I have a 96 honda accord. A few weeks ago my turn signals didnt work. i inspected it and thought that maybe it was as simple as a fuse. So i replaced the fuse and sure enough it started working. two weeks...

I always trace the earth in cases like this.
Check vehicle chassis earth points for corrosion. The only effective way to do this is undo them, use abrasive (cloth, tape, paper), apply a smear of grease and remake the connection.
Find the indicator relay - unplug and plug in again.
Check wiring for any faults with a multimeter, checking with the bulbs out for a short, and in for continuity.

Replace the relay if it appears faulty.

My 2004 Honda accord is not starting.

The battery has run down flat or the starter has gone bad. check the two.

labor rate is usually around $65/hr

parts are between $95-300

figure on about 2hrs and the price of the part

$135/ labor plus tax
$140.00 part cost +tax

right around $300 if you have a shop do it

Good luck.

Car won't shift gears

It sounds like you have a bad transmission computer. The first thing you should do is have a shop try to scan the TCM for codes.

96 Honda Accord D (Drive) light is flashing!

Try checking transmission oil, top it off or have it changed. If still not fixed go to autozone or similar and have them hook it up to a machine that will diagnose problems to make sure it isn't just a faulty sensor or something. It is transmission related so don't just let it go.
