1998 Honda Accord won't start. Hear electrical clicking sound coming from behind the glove box area. What could be causing this?


-There are couple thing that cause not to start:
*Before check the following, make sure battery is full of charge.
1. No thing at all. Possible Corrosion battery cable or bad connector or starter relay. (Visual Inspect it) Clean it or tight it
2.Click but never turn or start. Starter has dirty contact or worn out. (Replace W/new one)

Good luck

1998 Honda Accord Won't Start


Park neutral safety switch maybe be the reason for the no crank ! Try putting the vehicle in park ,then try to crank the engine . Testing the electrical circuit is the best way to trouble shoot this problem , along with do a voltage drop test on the starter circuit ! This will test the battery cables an connections .

Does it have a manual or automatic transmission ? Manual ? clutch switch . Looking at a wiring diagram I also see a starter cut relay !

1998 honda accord shut off while driving and won't start; next day it does.


One common problem with Honda cars is the fuel pump relay.
I would check that first. Do you know if you have spark to the plugs when it won't start ?

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.

My 1990 Honda Accord won't start. I just replaced


i have two things that come to mind first of which is your neutral safety switch ...its located on the clutch pedal ..its to prevent the car from being started in gear it may not be working correctly and wont let power to the started when you turn the key...most likely the problem...the other thing if thats not it you may need to check the ignition switch...

MY 98 HONDA ACCORD 4CYL AUTOMATIC STARTER IS ONLY CLICKING HOW CAN I START IT OTHERWISE. CAN I HIT THE STARTER?


If you can hear the clicking sound, there is a good possibility that the starter solenoid is working alright. With a voltmeter check the terminals at the starter itself, not the solenoid, and it should read ZERO volts. At the moment of turning on the ignition you should have 12 volts. If this is the case, then the starter motor is locked/ temporarily frozen, or it went bad. If no voltage on turning on, then you will have to trace the cables that lead to the starter. If you insist on using jumper cables on the starter motor, i recommend that you disconnect ALL electricity from the starter, in order to avoid damage to the ECU and other delicate engine electronic components. Jump start the starter just to unfreeze it, to get it turning, not to start the engine.
