Hi Meadors,

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:

  1. the solenoid is fed 12VDC which engages an electromagnetic coil inside it.
  2. A spring loaded steel piston inside this coil reacts to the magnetic field. It is pulled against the spring. By itself this sounds like a loud decisive CLICK.
  3. The movement of the piston simultaneously pushes the starter gear into the flywheel and sends power to the starter via heavy duty contacts. The starter draws a lot of power.
  4. The starter spins, turns the engine, the engine starts, life is good.
  5. When the key is released, the solenoid disengages, the spring pushes the piston back, the starter gear disengages from the flywheel.
In our world, when you turn the key to start:
  1. The solenoid which draws it's share of power engages as before. Click.
  2. As the starter tries to spin, the power available is insufficient. It draws all remaining power, there isn't enough left to keep the solenoid active and it turns off.
  3. Since the starter isn't drawing power anymore, the solenoid re-engages and the cycle starts over. Click.
  4. The cycle repeats. Click. A series of rapid clicks. Same page?
While a dead battery is the prime suspect, there can be other causes. Things to do:

  • Check belts, specifically on the alternator.
  • Terminal connections clean and tight.
  • In the 'Let's not over look the obvious' department: Battery voltage?
  • Get a jump. Try a jump start.
  • If a jump gets you going, it is either the battery not holding a charge or the alternator not providing one.
Even new batteries can be bad off the shelf. Especially if they have been on that shelf for a while. They may show the voltage but not the amps. This is called a 'Surface Charge'.

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.
Best regards
Mike

1991 honda accord turns over wont start . when key in second postion no lights on dash exept for battery light


blown fuse.
the CEL lamp must glow, or the ECU is dead. (no power)
the CEL is very important lamp telling you the ECU has power
and it thinks(sic) that it is ok, (basics)
if the lamp is burned out, it become hard to work the ECU.
as this ECU flashes codes for errors,
check all fuse. in both boxes.

Wont start/turn over clicks when turn key/battery good


If the battery is good as you state. then the starter must be at fault, if you can reach it give it a light tap with a hammer and try again. if this fixes it you need your starter replaced or repaired.

Honda Accord dash lights don't turn on starts momentarily then turns off


That is either a sensor or an alarm system acting up. Not a Honda guy but on others thats what can cause that. If the key has a rfid chip its the alarm and you may need a new key from the stealer. what happens in that case is the car doesn't detect an authourised key and thinks it is being stolen and shuts off after a half second of running.

I have a 96 Honda Accord EX. Key on all dash lights come on. Turn the key to start and no response. What do I need to look for? Battery checks OK


Have you cleaned the battery terminals? You may also have a sticking starter selonoid. Tap it lightly with a screwdriver handle or small wooden mallet. If this doesn't work you may have to replace the starter after cleaning all the starter connections. It could also be the starter relay. Have it checked out first. Good luck!
