Question about 1998 Honda Accord

2 Answers

It does the same thing, it clicks and eventually starts. It is the worst when it is cold. If I click it alot rapidlly it normally starts. Do you think it is the starter or a loose wire.

Start checking from the battery terminals,remove clean and reset, now checck the main line to the starter solenoid /starter.
Now if the solenoid is clicking and not engaging then it can be due to poor solenoid action, poor starter connection of the brushes.
If you hear the click and the entire voltage dipping , but eventually when it contacts , it starts, then the fault is the starter motor assmebly, perhaps the starter pinion is not engaging on well .Overhauling this section will be the solution.

Sounds like the starter itself. A" dead spot" in the windings so that it has to get past that to finally make enough power to turn the motor over. Also make sure the battery terminals and posts are clean and tight in

You are probably experiencing a failing starter relay. The contacts begin to corrode from the current drawn when starting the car. This causes poor conduction and the clicking you hear. Eventually, it will stop working altogether. The starter relay was added as a recall item to prevent the same thing from happening to the ignition switch (which it did in vehicles before the recall). The starer relay can be found in the very fromt of the engine compartment, just to the left of the battery, mounted on the back side of the radiator crossmember.

Hi:) That sound like the solenoid is the problem it is located on the starter and if the solenoid is not working right it will do all the things you are explaining.And yes heat has alot to do with it and being ware out.If it is the original it is time to replace the starter anyways it's 16 years old.

My 96 subaru legacy w/2.2 engine wont start especially when cold.if i keep turning the key on and off it clicks then will eventually catch


If you turn the key to the crank position and all you hear is a single click than the starter is probably bad. Especially if you keep trying and the starter eventually starts working and starts the vehicle. This is usually caused by either bad contacts in the solenoid or worn out/dirt brushes/commutators. Buy repeatedly making the solenoid click you get what every is not working to move just enough to make a good connection and get everything working again.

2006 GMC Sierra when you go to start it does alot of clicking before it eventually starts


Hi DL,

Two possibilities:
  1. Weak Battery
  2. Solenoid on its last legs
Just the fact that it eventually starts points me toward the solenoid (and not the starter).

Question on the "clicking": When you turn the key, do you get one solid click or a series of rapid fire clicks?

One solid click is the solenoid. It's not transferring power to the starter. These are a LOT cheaper to replace than the starter or battery.

Rapid fire is a weak battery. You can confirm this by getting a 'Load Test' at an Auto Parts or Battery store. This simulates the load of an engine starting on your battery. It takes 5 seconds, the results are Pass or Fail.

My moneys on the solenoid

Best of luck sir

98 Accord DX clicks once when key is turned, eventually starts


Check battery terminals and make sure they are free of corrosion and are tightly secure on battery. If all is good it may be the stater that's sticking. or maybe clutch safety switch on clutch pedal is going bad. Good Luck contact me if you need more help
