I am taking this as the starter not turning. You have safety switches on the brake pedal lever or clutch pedal lever. Sometimes the signal loss will even prevent the brakelights from working.

The drivers feet can hit and dislodge the safety switch or even break it. This prevents the power from reaching the starter solenoid. Check to see if you have brakelights.

Can hear the starter motor turning over but it does not engage the engine to start it


Sounds like the solenoid has gone on your starter motor, this is the device that throws the gear out of the starter motor to engage the flywheel to crank over the engine. Remove starter motor and bench test to confirm, how to do this is: starter motor removed and in vice, earth the body of motor and where the thickest input wire was is main 12v add a 12v to this, and the small input wire just tap 12v to it and see your motor work if not working then replace starter motor, it should throw gear out and spin

Starter not engaging


The starter solenoid mounted on top of the starter has two functions, as the key is operated the solenoid slides the starter pinion to engage the flywheel, THEN operates heavy duty contacts to power the motor. The solenoid is not engaging the pinion.1726daf9-e191-4168-8e99-cab63cae5995.gif

92 honda civic hatchback new starter spins does not engage flywheel, could it be a fuse


unlikely as the motor spins. It appears that the motore solenoid is allowing the motor to spin before engaging the teeth in the ring gear. ON a lot of starters the pivot pin is adjustable to allow for correct engagement.Remove the starter and check that the solenoid is fact connected to the clutch part of the starter. Check that you have the correct starter for the engine

Starter wont engage after replacing dead battery


Check power to starter motor solenoid, solenoid operation and starter motor voltage during cranking. If the starter motor is receiving power from the solenoid, but isn't cranking, then replace the starter motor.

Also check the condition of battery terminals, wiring and connections. Also check the earth wire from the body to the engine.

Starter motor not engaging


Hi without seeing (hearing) it sounds like the clutch in the bendix is faulty, as the solenoid will engage the bendix at the same time as connecting feed to the starter motor.
New starter required or a good strip down and rebuild on the solenoid and bendix.
What condition is the ring gear in by the way (Starter Motor removed). David

The problem seems to be with the solenoid on the starter motor that is why it is not engaging the flywheel. Please contact the nearest workshop as it can be repaired.
