Hi have you checked the leads from battery to starter are secure ? also important that the negative earth lead from battery to the engine is also secure and in good condition on the starter you should have main cable from battery and a thinner cable both connected to solenoid on one terminal ? then a thin wire to a small push on terminal? this wire is the key start wire which energises the slenoid/starter

1997 honda civic died on the road wont turn over


Start with the battery unless fairly new & have that tested

Next turn key on & listen for fuel pump

It may run but not have pressure or volume

Check fuel pressure at motor with a gauge

Any light on dash & you checked for codes
didn't you? What are they?

Turning over & Starting are two different things,
don't use them together,different systems there

1994 Honda Civic not starting


you need to check all fuses one by one for loose contact.leave the igtion key to on position and try to tap the fuse box, shake wires from battery going to inside the car.A testlight is effective in diagnosting this trouble.Probing the wires on the ignition switch while turning on the key.Need somebody to observe the cluster while performing the troubleshooting.

1989 honda civic-starts on some occasions and won't start on others. What are some possible solutions?


If you are referring to no crank when you turn the key then I would say the starter is going bad.If it cranks and wont turn over(run) I would say check the coil.

No start


check wiring at the starter, and also check fuses, sounds like something has shorted out.

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...


Dont Drive Yourself Nuts With The Clicking Its Not Your Problem. Does It Start Sometimes? When You Turn The Key Do You Just Get A Click From Your Starter? Cause It Sounds Like Your Starter.
