Check the cables at the battery. Best to take them off, clean them and bolt them back on. Corrosion.

SOURCE: changed out dead battery and horn wont stop

Hello.
Changing out the old battery, you may somehow shorted something out in the car. You can check this by seeing if you have any power going to the lights on the car and what ever else that uses the power when you turn on the key. Newer cars like yours usually cant short out, but if the lights and other stuff dont work when your check them, disconnect the battery and look for the fuse panel. Check ALL your fuses and make sure none of them have been blown. You can check that by seeing if the filament in them looks to be burnt or broken as if it popped.
You can also check and make sure that the negative battery terminal is on tight enough. Sometimes a bad ground can mess everything up. As your doing this, before your reconnect your battery, go under the hood of your car and disconnect the horn. This will allow you to work without the horn blaring. To disconnect the horn, its just a wire with an end that simply slides over a metal tab, just give it a pull and it should come right off. You may have two horns so check both sides of the radiator. Hope this helps!

Why wont my 98 honda civic start all of a sudden when its been running perfect since i bought it? Its acting like the battery is dead but wouldnt it start to give me signs that its starting to go out?


If you hear a clicking sound but the engine is not turned over by the starter then you have a defective starter mounted starter solenoid, the internal contact that supply the starter motor are eroded from arching. If that is not the case then check all battery connections and have the battery tested, modern batteries seldom give any warning when they fail, one minute cranked over fine next nothing.

Hello, you can try resetting the ECU. Disconnect the battery, or remove fuse #6 from the fuse box under the hood. Wait a minute before you re-install (or reconnect) it.

The battery went dead when I tryed to start in cold weather,I removed the battery and charged it back up, However when I put the battery back in the car started and ran for about five minutes when it shut...


You have a dead short across that fuse, The end opposite the battery will probably show a ground rather than a resistive load. You are going to have to find that short and fix it. A dead short on a 60 Amp fuse is a heavy load. That fuse is probably preventing a fire or melted harness wires.

1989 Honda CRX won't start after a short trip.


Easy one.This is a common problem on 88-91 Civics and CRX's.Check your main relay under the drivers side dash.It provides power to the ECU,fuel pump,and injectors.Its a squarish box with a single plug going into it held on by one 10 mm bolt.The solder joints break down over time and cause the condition you're having.You can pry off the plastic cover and resolder the joints if you are handy with a soldering iron,or just ask for a main relay at Autozone,etc.
