2008 honda accord 2.4 wont crank but battery is not dead...Please HELP!!

Do the easy things first:
Check the cleanliness and tightness of the battery terminals. Also check the cleanliness and tightness of the earth cable - the black cable, both on the battery terminal and where it attaches to the engine block/bodywork.

Loosen the clamp bolts on the battery terminals and 'twist' the cable connectors on the terminals to clean them. (bear in mind that if you disconnect the battery you may lose the radio code..). Retighten.

A poor earth can cause the problems you describe. The electrical system cannot earth itself and consequently won't crank or is difficult/slow/intermittent to crank.

Bear in mind that a completely dead battery / failing battery will still illuminate your dashboard lights.

But .. check that black battery lead first ...

When not running the engine for a week, the battery dies. When I jump start it, engine will start cranking very slow and pickup speed before it starts running.

it seems like the battery is going. clean battery terminals, also the grounding to the body (engine block, transmission, etc.) all should be shiny cleaned. suggest you go to autozone (or other auto parts) for a free battery & alternator tests.

2000 isuzu trooper no start with slow crank loose 4 volts at starter

automatic or stick>?
no engine size stated. gas or diesel.
slow crank, 250 -300 rpm is normal.
so did you AAA tow truck style , jumper cable crank that car off a running donor car yet>?
just that act (test) speaks volume for cause.

what does loose 4v mean...??
10-11v is normal voltage at starter. cranked.
4 v at the solenoid can not even begin to close it,
or did you mean the 12vdc is 4v lower that 12vd. which is 8v.
perplexing. (3 cheers 1st poster here with voltmeter, im am truly shocked,(no pun) honest reply.......!!

A fuses blown. (DEAD CRANKS)
wrong sized battery in car, (tiny)
LAST DRIVE? the charge system died, and now battery is weak. fix charging system.
left head lights on, cure , charge battery.

battery terminals rusty !( yes they have 4 ends they can rust or get loose) 500 amps here so must be clean and tight.(bat terms)

jumper cables jump starts car ok?, yes, then battery dead.
battery bad, battery only discharged ?
jumper cables don't crank fast, then hot wire the starter. (big wire to tiny)
more testing....
with known good charged battery (12.6vdc rested)
i hot wire the starter solenoid.
i monitor the voltage at starter actual.
with a volt meter.
most cars do 11v, in warm summer.
if much less, say below 10v the starter will be slow. so i monitor battery terminals volts.
and if ok, there, the cables are bad. (voltage drop on cables is that, yes, cables do fail.)
or the starter is partially shorted. or engine seizing....hand turn engine crankpulley and feel it.? feel normal, ? or cant move it...?

if i suspect a bad starter i use my ammeter.
the starter current will be about 200 amps .
no engine stated so.....i guess....
if it goes to like 600+, the starter is shorted.
I have an amp clamp amp meter, that allows me to see and find the hard cases...

2000 Ford f250 5.4. Original starter was getting way too hot. Replaced starter and wires and selenoid and new starter is getting way to hot. Truck does crank over but very slow. Completely stumped

have you checked and cleaned battery connections and also check and clean the other end of the ground cable if it is cranking that slow and starter is getting that hot may be a bad starter have them test it on there machine where you got it if that is ok the only thing it can be is battery and connections

Seems like a starter or battery problem-truck is slow to star.

Have your battery tested. It's free to test at most parts stores. They might even do a free starter test if you have the car there. Check your cables and cable ends. Don't forget to check the cable ends at the starter. I think you may need the starter replaced. Always check the cheap things first.

Hello, about a couple of weeks ago my car went crazy I kept hearing this clicking sound from inside while I was driving. When it click the battery light, brake light and this light that's made like and I...

First check and make sure your battery is good, your battery cables are snug on the post, you have a good ground and if needed clean your battery posts. Next check your alternator....if the alternator is going bad it will make your truck act "possessed". I hope this helps. Good luck!

I have a 1989 f 150. It slow starts or just clicks.

as your cranking have a meter on the battery. Your batery may have 12 volts at rest but it should not pull down below 9.6v while cranking.. Remove and clean the battery connectors and then test

Will crank, very slowly, but won't start

Hey Mona, 1st thing u should check is the battery. Most auto parts stores offer a free check of your battery and your charging system. This will tell if the battery is bad, or if the system (alternator) isn't charging the battery. Yes, it could be a starter problem, but since yours is only 14 months old, it should be ok. Let me know what they say, I'll help some more if u need it. Also, how do the battery terminals look (where the cables clamp on to the battery)? Is there corrosion build up (powdery deposits) on the cables and battery terminals (where the cables clamp on the battery?) If there is, u may just have to remove the cables, clean them up w/ sandpaper, coat w/grease or vaseline to prevent future corrosion. It could be as simple as that to fix, so check this 1st.
