My 1997 accord will not start. put new battery did not work. the starter will not turn when you turn the key. have had problem with ignition switch not wanting to turn but play with it and it will turn.

Do you hear a click when you the the key to start? Have seen many times the contacts in the starter get damaged. If no click or anything, I would start at the switch.

Honda odyssey will not start clicking noise when key turned

Did you ever figure this out? I have a similar problem. There is a very light ticking sound when the key is in the on position but not being turned to start. In fact, nothing happens when turned to start now. It did at least click. The batter is good and everything electrical is working in the vehicle without dimming or anything. Jumping also did not change anything.

Car won't start . Clicking noise wen key is turned

It's your starter. Find location of your starter. By the flywheel. Then. Bang on it . Your car will start. You still need to replace the starter.

Maintenance required on dash board how can i reset it please help

    • 1

      Sit inside the driver's seat of the Honda Accord and close the driver's side door. Any interior lights on can prevent the maintenance required light from resetting properly on some year models.

    • 2

      Insert the key in the ignition.

    • 3

      Depress the odometer/trip button located beneath the odometer on the instrument panel. Hold the button down.

    • 4

      Turn the ignition key two clicks forward to the accessory power position. This is also known as the key-on/engine-off position.

    • 5

      Continue to hold down the odometer/trip button for up to 15 seconds until the maintenance required light goes out. On some Accord models, the maintenance required light may blink once before going out.

    • 6

      Release the odometer/trip button and then turn the ignition key to the off position.

    • 7

      Start the Honda Accord to ensure the maintenance required light is no longer illuminated on the instrument panel. If it still is, the reset procedure did not take and you'll need to repeat the procedure.

    1996 Honda accord starts occasionally. No clicking sound, lights and radio come on when key is turned. Just service vehicle, changed oil, radiator, ignition switch, muffler, sparkplugs, distributor cap,...

    Sounds like bad battery cables. Try that. Other than that. take it to a mechanic and have them look at it while you are standing there (he can't charge you! never let it enter the shop!).

    The car starts and then shuts off

    Am guessing electric fuel pump.

    Get in car, put key in ignition, and turn to "On". Do not try to start. Listen closely for the fuel pump running. See if car starts. If it does, go through the sequence again, and see if car always starts, and if it runs longer than previously performing the above test..

    1997 Honda Accord EX wont start then will start

    Most of these Accords had two recalls pertaining to the ingnition switch. There is an interlock issue, and an electrical portion of the ignition switch recall. I would start by replacing the electrical portion of the ignition switch as this will most times fix this issue. The clicking noise may indicate an issue with the starter however. Would advise having a starting and charging system test at a professional repair facility to check the starter, but the ignition issue would be where i would start.

    1999 Honda Accord, 5 speed

    It could either be a BAD starter or a BAD ignition they both would have the same symptoms of a "CLICK" alone. I would most likely lean toward the ignition because the key is difficult to turn but its not all ways true that key is tight because the ignition is bad, although possible. It could just mean a bad ignition cylinder(just the key part why its tight) I want you to do a test for me. With clutch engaged turn key to start position and listen for click on starter in the hood, when trying to start. If you hear starter click then the ignition switch is good. (Before you do this make sure that battery is FULLY CHARGED).STARTER IS AT FAULT. IF no clicking is heard coming from starter check starter fuse and if its good YOU have a BAD ignition switch. Contact if you need more hep and Thanks for using FIX YA
