Try this:

  • Check the battery cable connections:
Make sure the positive cable, makes a good connection at the battery and at the starter. Make sure the negative cable makes a good ground connection at the battery and (preferably) at the engine.
  • Check the battery the simple way, like this:
Turn on the headlights, then try to start the car.If the headlights do not dim or go out, then the battery is likely ok.
  • Check the starter and solenoid:
If the wiring looks ok, then look at the starter solenoid for a good connection, and proper voltage at the starter(10 volts minimum while cranking).
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.
  • Make a simple test of the alternator:
If you can, somehow get the engine running, measure the voltage at the battery. It should be at least 13.6 volts to properly charge the battery.

Well the battery and alternator would not have anything to do with the engine starting.
You would need to check the ignition system to see if you are getting the correct spark at the plugs when the engine fails to start.

Your battery is stone dead. Once started, the alternator keeps it running.

Are you sure you have correct timing? its definetly a fule problem, if timing is good then turn your key to the on position and try to listin for the fule pump to prime. While the key is in on position go to fuel rail, there is a valve on fule rail called sharader valve. Get a small screw driver and press valve in to check if car has fule pressure. if pressure is present then it is incorrect timing or possible bad cam sensor.

SOURCE: Does 1998 Honda Civic have a starter relay? If so, where is it located?

When you tested the battery did you have it load tested? It is possible the battery is good but is losing power overnight due to an open circuit. This will give you the slow crank in the mornings. Once the vehicle has been running and charged the battery back up it works fine the rest of the day. Car batteries provide you with two needed items at start up, Amperage and Voltage. It is possible to have 12 or 13 volts and the battery not be able to crank the motor over because it can't generate the Amperage needed. Your problem is not the Starter Relay, as someone else mentioned if that goes out it will not crank at all. If teh battery has an overnight drain or weak cell it will ahve problems generating the Amperage required and cause your problem. Unfortunately the only way to really identify this will be to let the vehicle sit overnight and then remove the battery and take it to auto zone and have it load tested.

My cadillac deville has no power after sitting for a few days. i need a jump to get it started. why is that


Replace the alternator. Once the battery dies, the alternator should still have a little bit of power left in it, if your car isn't starting after it's been jumped, chances are that the alternator is shorted out. Replace the alternator, and also recharge your battery. Check your battery terminals for signs of corrosion, and clean it off with a scrubbie and a mix of water and baking soda.

Car no start problem is sometimes very difficult to confirm. You try all the possible things, but still you get no fault and problem is still the same.--------
In that case, you need to check few things individually.
Check the spark,the battery,the crank, the fuel and other most possible parts. Click this link below for more details:-- http://howtobyme.blogspot.com/2011/10/car-troubleshooting-tips.html

sounds like the distributor. over time the distributor could get debris and condensation inside it and cause it to act up here and there.

95 honda civic dx civic has good battery but still won't start sometimes its enought to start


If your car starts after you charge the battery overnight or with a jump start then the most likely problem is that your alternator is not charging the battery when the car is running. If you take it to an auto parts stores many of them will test your alternator (for free) to verify that is the problem.

If that isn't what is causing your problem you need to look for a short that is draining your battery and you would need a clamp on ampmeter to find that.
