Question about 1996 Honda Accord
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!!!
