Question about 2007 Honda Accord Sedan
No "click-click-click" to indicate not enough battery power it does not happen every time, can be cold, warm doesnt matter. just replaced the starter, this did not fix it. Any help/advice is appreciated.
What do you have to do to get it to crank ?
You could try cranking it in neutral to see if the neutral safety switch is acting up. It could also be a faulty relay or connection.

Yes, it sounds like your solenoid is bad and staying engaged against the flywheel, you could do an amperage draw and a voltage drop test to find out for sure, but you will need an DVOM and a amp clamp. Or you could take it into an auto parts store and they will test it for free. Hope this helps.

the battery says 12 volts but may be dropping to 4 or 5 under a load...i would suggest jumpstarting the car and see what happens.the battery should read in the high 12 volts and not less than 9.5 under cranking. the dash lights go out on your car when starting,and the alarm will go off ,and disable the ignition if the voltage is too low in cranking the car because the computer will shut it down and activate the anti theft.....check your battery posts are tight. best of luck

My wife's 2006 Odyssey had the same problem today.
I started with a new battery as that was easy to replace and was what I assumed was the problem...wrong. $90, but it was due for a new one anyway.
I would start with the starter relay/solenoid...less than $5.
I'm pulling the battery tomorrow to check all of the wire connections since I will not be able to get the relay until Tuesday.
If need be, I will remove the starter and take it somewhere to be tested so I don't have to drive the van and get stuck somewhere far from home.
