Question about 1993 Honda Accord
Ok first off I replaced the starter. I also have a brand new battery and a new clutch positioning censor or whatever its called that tells if you have clutch engaged. It started one day and drove fine then the next morning nothing. it will go to the acc. position and lights come on and when I turn to start some lights go out like it does when it starts but only sound I hear is a faint click under the dash on drivers side. I have the wiring harness disconnected from the ignition and I turn it with a small screwdriver and have to push start car. is there some fuse or something inbetween the ignition thing im turning and the starter that could be wrong??????????
This procedure usually works:
If the starter spins and no crank, the problem is most likely the Solenoid's bendix gear is stuck.
Have someone hit (not too hard) the starter while you try to start the car. This usually works by dislodging a stuck bendix gear.

Yea the main relay but first check your grounds a lose or corroded wire will cause that and theres a starter relay switch good luck

Ok so that wasn't it. Three days later problem came back. Replaced battery cables. Problem goes away for another few days. Came back again and found what I think is finally it. Engine Cut Out Relay in the power distribution box. (of note the expert told me there were no relays in the ignition system) Although the local auto parts store's computer said they did not carry this relay, I took it in anyway and they matched it up with one off the shelf. $7.50 and I am running good as new. Hope this helps some of the rest of you. Also, the wiring schematic in the back of the Haynes manual was also an invaluable assist on this one.

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
