If you have full power to the car and lights dont dim, etc. then you have a charged battery and alternator. Honda's are high compression engines and take a strong starter to turn the motor over. If you are putting key in and turnign to CRANK and you get no response, the power doesnt dim, and the lights dont dim when doing this then your power system is fine its a bad starter. The starter for your motor (assuming auto trans) can be found at

If you are a handy DIY person you can do this change yourself. The starter is On the transmission. You should be able to see it if you open the hood and look at the transmission. It's held on by two or three bolts, has a couple wires going to it, and looks about the size of a large can of soda.

  • unhook the battery cables, starting with the negative first. and remove the air pipe
  • unhook the two wires coming off the starter
  • remove the two nuts holding the old starter in, and pull the starter
  • insert and bolt in the new starter
  • connect the two wires to the new starter, reinstall the air pipe, and hook the battery back up positive first and negative last. Make sure everything is torqued down good on battery and alternator and you dont see any corrosion, bad wires, etc. This shoudl do the trick

    New stater, stater still makes clicking sound

    First you should check to make sure the engine is not locked up by turning it over manually. If you can turn the engine manually, then check your battery terminal ends to make sure you have good, clean and tight connections. Typically, a faulty electrical connection is the main culprit that will cause your situation. If you still suspect a faulty connection, try having someone turn the ignition key while you wiggle the battery cables to see if it will try to start. This should help you narrow down the problem area.

    The car has a new fully charged battery ,yet it will not start even though the starter has power and the electronics work, and there isn't even any noise comming from the starter

    If the starter has voltage at the solenoid on the starter when turning the key to start,then it is the stater,if it is 12 volts.If this was helpful,please rate,thank you.

    Full power won't jump nothing happens when I turn the key

    Sounds like the starter has failed. Have someone turn the ignition while you tap on the starter with a hammer. If it starts, that confirms starter. If it still doesn;t start, remove the stater and have it bench tested at a parts store.
