SOURCE: 1996 honda civic wont start

Hi Meadors,

The clicking sound you heard most likely the starter solenoid engaging the starter. Only in this case it's failing to engage the starter. This is a classic symptom of a low battery. Here's why.

In a perfect world, when you turn the key to start:

  1. the solenoid is fed 12VDC which engages an electromagnetic coil inside it.
  2. A spring loaded steel piston inside this coil reacts to the magnetic field. It is pulled against the spring. By itself this sounds like a loud decisive CLICK.
  3. The movement of the piston simultaneously pushes the starter gear into the flywheel and sends power to the starter via heavy duty contacts. The starter draws a lot of power.
  4. The starter spins, turns the engine, the engine starts, life is good.
  5. When the key is released, the solenoid disengages, the spring pushes the piston back, the starter gear disengages from the flywheel.
In our world, when you turn the key to start:
  1. The solenoid which draws it's share of power engages as before. Click.
  2. As the starter tries to spin, the power available is insufficient. It draws all remaining power, there isn't enough left to keep the solenoid active and it turns off.
  3. Since the starter isn't drawing power anymore, the solenoid re-engages and the cycle starts over. Click.
  4. The cycle repeats. Click. A series of rapid clicks. Same page?
While a dead battery is the prime suspect, there can be other causes. Things to do:

  • Check belts, specifically on the alternator.
  • Terminal connections clean and tight.
  • In the 'Let's not over look the obvious' department: Battery voltage?
  • Get a jump. Try a jump start.
  • If a jump gets you going, it is either the battery not holding a charge or the alternator not providing one.
Even new batteries can be bad off the shelf. Especially if they have been on that shelf for a while. They may show the voltage but not the amps. This is called a 'Surface Charge'.

If you don't have a voltmeter, what you need to do now is visit an auto parts store (not a shop). Most (in the hope of making a sale) will provide free testing of batteries and charging systems.

What you need is called a "Load Test" on the battery. It simulates the load of an engine being started. This will confirm the battery is good or bad.

Then with the car running, they need to check the voltage to the battery (they will know this). If it's not above +13VDC, the alternator is bad or not connected correctly.

And if it doesn't start, what better place to be?

Let me know what they and you find out by commenting.
Best regards
Mike

SOURCE: car won't start. Turn the key on and all lights

Try boosting the car,if it always starts then you either need a battery or you need to clean your cable ends.If this does nothing for you then replace the starter relay.

1996 HONDA CIVIC FUEL SHUTOFF DEVICE WHERE IS IT LOCATED


Don't think there is such a device. You can pull the fuel
pump connector under the rear seat or try removing the
fuel pump fuse located in the engine compartment or
under driver's side dash. Once fuel pump is disabled
start the car and let it run till it stops to relieve fuel
system pressure.

2001 honda civic turns on, then turn off 10 sec,computer say everything ready, no engine light on i had a complete check done with a mechanic,it has spark and fuel pump okay,what could be the problem?


Your civic may be affected by a fuel pump connector safety recall. during the inspection an installation of the fuel tank water may have been left in the fuel pump connector. Over time, this water could corrode the terminals in the connector, causing the engine not to start or stall while driving. Have your local Honda dealer run a VIN Status inquiry on your vehicle to see if it is affected by this recall. If not than monitor fuel pump voltage. Back probe the yel/green wire at the fuel pump connector (acess panel under the rear seat.) if the voltage goes away before it dies than the PGM-FI main relay #2 is faulty. The relay is in the underdash fuse box. -hope this helps lmk

Winshield washer motor does not run


The wiper and washer motors us the same fuse. So if the wipers work, it's not the fuse. The washer motor wiring, the top wire is voltage, bottom wire is ground. As you can see, at the wiper/washer switch, #5 sends voltage for washer motor, you can see the wire colors. If good voltage and ground and no washer action suspect the washer motor. Before replacing anything, make sure the plumbing from washer fluid to windshield is not clogged.
