When you hear a clicking sound it means your battery voltage is too low The battery posts and clamps need to be cleaned and put back together. Did you leave lights on or something to kill the battery? Or is the battery not charging? You may need a new battery and a new voltage regulator. Is the belt tight? Is the alternator producing a voltage or is it time to get it serviced or replaced? These are rhetorical questions of course.

1999 honda accord wont start no sound not cranking battery good

I am assuming that this is a four cylinder automatic--- There is a neutral safety switch on your automatic shifter- Make sure that your shifter is all the way into park , You can unlock your shifter with your key or some like object, take it to neutral and then back to park!
2. check your starter connection to the battery, if loose or corroded clean and tighten. I don't know what level of mechanical you are but at this point take a screwdriver and cross the posts, it will spark so don't freak out. If your connection is good it should turn the engine if it does not engage or at least try then it could be a starter solenoid or if it clicks could be a starter. Now if you do this with the key on, the car might start, again don't freak out!!
3. Now there are also fuses in the starting system check you fuses
4. The worst case scenario would be a locked-up engine. Have you or do you know if the timing belt has been changed? If it broke, it could have taken out the top end of the engine ( valves, rods , cam , possible even the rods! like I said this is the worse case scenario! Hope this helps

Ignition will not turn to off and will not start when turned to start makes no noise or click or anything. battery is good starter is good. shifter moves all the time intermitantly. wont come out or go...

Sounds like ign tumbler or ign switch is bad? If it wont come out of park checkto make sure brake lights are working if no could be brake light swicth which controls the shift interlock which if not working will not allow the shifter to come out of park.

1-starter stuck. find a small hammer and hit to starter slowly few times.
2-neutral park relay is broken or its connection to shifter broken. find relay in relay box check for continuity. remove relay from its place give 12 volts to pin 85 and 86 you will normally hear a click sound. if no sound relay is broken.

Wont start starter just makes a click when you turn key also the rodeo shifter moves without putting on brake

Will not turn over

Sorry to say, but you have a bad starter. One way to check is to have someone tap on the starter with a hammer while you try to start it, if the starter starts to turn, then it's your starter...or have someone removed it and then take it to a local auto parts store and have them check it....Chances are you have a bad starter.
