Question about 1996 Honda Accord
When I turn it over it makes no noise, battery is good. radio and interior lights works, what should I do next??
Want to Guess? or Diagnose? ill answer the later.
Surely HL is a better light to check as interior are weak currents.
better is HL on, heater fan on and defrost on..... a free load test of any car battery.
the classic, NO CRANK.
what transmission, A/T or M/T(stick?)
what I do , is check battery voltage rested (not me the bat) and it will be 12.6vdc (warm day) if not i charge it.
i then hot wire the starter solenoid. (cuts diagnostic work in 1/2)
I put car in park, or neutral if ,M/T then chock the tires/wheels (safety) , keys in pocket, and ebrake set hard.
the starter solenoid has 1 large lug, do not accidentally ground this lug, is huge. the other connection is tiny,
remove the wire from this lug.
the solenoid ST lug is small and now naked on solenoid
i then jumper (FSM says use 15amp fused jumper) and
i jumper the big lug (HOT) to the tiny terminal.
car crank, good starter. and good batter and main cables.
car dont crank, bad starter, bad cables bad battery, or siezed engine, (if engine is suspected, hand crank it over, at pulley.
the problem is now cut in half,
bad starter side, or bad body side.
if the starter works (engine will not start, keys in pocket) then
the Key line is bad.
this line goes from the small lug wire removed to the key start switch terminal.
if A/T the A/T breaks this line in not park/neutral.
the PRNLD switch, so try starting in neutral (read op guide)
or wiggling the beasts
if M/T car, the clutch switch does the same.
if car wiring is hacked, from add on , stuff (alarm, remote start bs ir? then all bets off)
long post but its just 1 simple 3 min. test. a simple jumper wire.
if you have a volt meter, i check battery voltage at the battery lugs( cleaned first)
if the battery stays at 12v cranking (2 man) then the starter is dead. (no, not bad ,just asleep)
if the voltage drops like a rock, below 11v, is bad , below 10v in Alaska is bad ,and at 8v the solenoid will chatter.
The starter can pull 100amps on a warm day , or up to 3 times that in alaska. (no body ever posts location or tranny type.so.........)

Your starter bendix isnt engaging, if your replace your starter your problem should go away. The rappid ( firing ) you are hearing is the starter spinning but the bendix isnt moving out and engaging the flywheel.

It's probably the starter or cable to the starter. If you can get to it check it with a voltmeter while someone turns the key to engage the starter motor. If you have 12volts DC and it doesn't turn it is the starter.Good luck...

It should be your brake light switch. There is a little plate welded to the arm of the pedal that has a hole with a rubber stopper. The rubber stopper is most likely missing, or damaged. You should be able to take a flashlight and see the plate and the switch. If the hole is plugged up, you will need the brake light switch, if not, replace the plug.

For the V-6 model, the dipstick is located down low on the transaxle, on the drivers side of the car, if it is low, usually 1 pint of of fluid is needed to raise from low notch to high notch. also if it appears to be dark or burnt, smells burnt, you should replace the tranaxle fluid. Good Luck!
