Re: Why does my 1996 Honda Accord turn over when I push...
You sure you hooked it correctly? It's obvious there is power to the starter when you push in the clutch if it is turning over when depressing the clutch. Did it do this before you switched wires around?

hi make sure there is no starter kill circuit aftermarket alarm ,or remote starter if so i need the brand of the system by jumping the starter under the hood with remote start u need the ignition key to be in the run position before u crank the engine over then if it is the starter relay in the fuse box under the hood the engine will run just relace relay or check wires under the fuse box for corrosion hope it helps danny
If the engine will not crank the problem should not be related to an empty gas tank. You would need to check for voltage at the starter and trace back to the key switch. That circuit would have a clutch switch or neutral safety switch in it that could have failed. You should be able to jumper the starter to make it crank as a test.
This may be due to a bad neutral safety switch, is this car automatic or manual transmission?
If automatic try to start in neutral and if manual try to locate switch on clutch pedal and use a jumper wire to jump connector for switch, NOTE; If switch is jumped car will start in gear with pedal not pushed down and car will take off so this is just as a test not a repair!!!!!, good day
You will need to either splice or direct connect one of the leads to a push button starter to the starter solenoid. from there one fused wire to battery positive. And there you have a push button starter here is the danger of doing this if you are in gear with the key on or off and the button is accidently engage it can take off with you in the car or not so extreme safety needs to be practiced at all times
If the head lights and accessories work, your main fuse is good. Make sure your gear selector is all the way in the park park position. The gear indicator light should be illuminated. if the light doesn't illuminate in Park, but illuminates in the other gear positions the shift cable is out of adjustment. adjust the cable and recheck.
The next step would be to test the starter. Do this by first turning the ignition switch off. To be safe take the key out of the ignition. Unplug the small wire at the starter solenoid and take a jumper wire connected to the starter solenoid and touch it to the positive side of the battery (The battery should be connected to the vehicle).
-If the starter still doesn't operate. The starter is faulty and should be replaced.
-If the starter operates (spins), you have a starter circuit wiring issue. You'll have to do a series of pinpoint test to determine the fault. It could be a faulty ignition switch, starter cut relay, clutch pedal switch for manual trans. or a gear selector switch for an auto trans. or an open in the wiring harness to the starter. -hope this helps.
Sounds like you accidently pulled the thin wire from you starter motor. Look at the connections at the end of the solenoid, mounted on starter motor.The thick red wire is Battery + next to that connection is a smaller male push- on terminal, locate loose wire (thin) in the same area and reconnect to male push-on terminal on solenoid or check if earth cable between body/battery to engine wasnt removed in the process.Also some vehicles you have to engage the clutch before starting, check for a switch located on clutch pedal where master cylinder connects to clutch pedal (Is clutch switch mounted and wiring connected?)
