The clicking sound indicates that the battery is too low to start the vehicle. Accessories such as dash lights draw very little current, so they will work even when the battery is nearly depleted. Try removing the battery cables (negative first) and cleaning the cable ends and battery posts with a wire brush or sandpaper. Then check the water levels if yours is a serviceable battery, add distilled water if needed, replace and tighten the cables, then try to jump start from another vehicle. If it starts, let it run for a while and see if it will start again by itself. If so, that may be all you need. If it continues to lose its charge, you will need a new battery. If the vehicle will not start even with the jump, you may need a new starter.

If it didn't turn over, that sounds like a bad battery. You can test the battery like this:
Turn on the headlights, then try to start the car. If the battery is bad the headlights will dim or go off.
If the headlights stay bright, the battery is ok. But this means there is a bad connection, so check the battery cables.
Hope this helps.

My 1994 honda passport will not stay charged new altnator and new battery


is the engine running at 800 rpm or more.
if engine RPM is way low the Alternator will die out.
trans light , where is that? name it. exactly
lets focus first on the engine, and RPM
does the dash have a tachmeter, ? yes, then use that.
we keep a hand tachometer (optical , ready for no tach cars)
RPM is everything.... maxwells laws. and such.
1: rpm 800 or more all the time. rule 1, do not skip this.
2: belt to ALT not slipping'
3: battery good. terminals on battery cables tight both ends and
NOT PACKED in green corrosion, .
4: alternator case is grounded good.
5: The connection and ALT, all good.
6: you key on, and the dash charge light must turn on,
if not fix that now, on old cars, the dash light , causes the ALT to self excite, if the lamp burns out the alternator boots up DEAD.
or fails every other car starts. (does)
7: new alt is the wrong alt. zillion wrong ones, only 1 works.

Alternator & dash light


ok , i bet you didnt test all fuse. in dash and under hood, i bet
fuses that look good, can be bad (hair cracks)
use and ohmeter, 0ohms good, infinity bad.
if you have 12v and the Cig lighter and the dash is dead.
then the fuses are blown.
log in to alldata.com and look, all the drawings are there.

Dash lights won't work and alternator doesn't appear to be charging battery. All visible fuses are good


The alternator needs power from the battery to energise the rotor, so without the dash lights the alternator is not charging. Check for a fuse link near the battery. Get the dash lights on and the charging fault will clear. Sorry I can't be more specific as to the dash problem.

Honda passport 1998 problems 4x4 . I have noticed that the 4x4 lights on dash are flashing and when i went to use it i heard a click but the front tires arent taking the 4x4 . the last thing i did was put...


sounds like u are having front drive line problems. the press button 4x4s are not a good idea to have. transfer cases go out very easily. so check front drive line.

My 95 Honda Passport won't start


If you don't hear a click when you turn key to Start, check that the small wire onto the starter solenoid has a good connection. If you do hear the click, check that the large wire going between solenoid and battery has good connections..hope this helps.
