Question about 2003 Honda Element
About 6 months ago I had a new battery put into my Element. Then, recently, I had trouble with it starting. It wouldn't make any sound, the key would just turn and nothing else. Then, if I tried it in a few minutes, it would work just fine.
I didn't have the money to have it checked out, so after about two weeks of this, I went to start it one day and couldn't get it to start.
The Exxon around the corner is quoting me about $600 to fix it. I am hoping it might be something other than the starter. They haven't looked at it, just diagnosed it over the phone.
The problem is your starter. Replace it and it will start just fine. The HONDA starter is not made very well. Low torque.

Im having the same problem. I went to one place and they said I needed a new starter. So I took it to another and they said the wires to the starter were not good and needed to be replaced, they put in a new battery also. Then 2 days later it wouldnt start again. So I took it back they diagnosed it and could not find a issue with it. So the guy told me it is something electrical most probably a relay of a sort. A coworker told me to go to a electrical specialist.
