I would have the starter checked in the car, next.
If the amperage draw is 85 amps to 110 amps and it spins freely, the starter is ok.
If the amperage draw is that high but it doesn't spin the starter should be replaced.
If the amperage is low like 1 or 2 amps and it doesn't turn, the starter should still be replaced to get the solenoid replaced.

Get fuel pressure tested, it should retain line pressure, may also be worth changing fuel filter as these get overlooked,I assume you mean that it does'nt fire first crank, If slow crank at first, check earth points ie chassis to engine, battery to chassis

Why doesn't it crank or start?

Check battery connections and voltage. fuel pump only runs for a few seconds to start and runs again while cranking.

Honda will not start it is not battery

what engine, see list at end. 2.2L 2.7L or 3.0L?
never post no starts, with no engine stated, all below is GENERIC HONDA.
you are guessing why guess?
how did yo prove its not the battery.?? jumper cables starts?
how? never tell the mech, that, let him find the truth.
if you tell him wrong, he may spend a fortune proving you wrong.
(not me but can) see why? (labor and wrong parts replaced)
is this a no crank >? or a no start, why start at step 3.
or even not tell step 1 &2 ? was done.....

all use old folks , have hand cranked old tin lizzys.
and owned 50 motorcycles all FOOT KICK started.
so if it dont crank robustly it will never start is not lost on the old crowd.

  1. checked all fuses yet? CEL lamp glows in dash KEY ON??????
  2. cranks fast?
  3. got spark?
  4. ever done the 60k miles tune up, and is the CAM belt fresh.
if the cam belt snaps, the whole engine can be lost.
i do leak down tests on all hondas. for good reason.
and 100x time that for Honda's NEVER SERVICED !!!
i can even hear you crank it, and see its lost compression just buy the sound of the starter, (sounds like sewing machine running, no load)

if compression is good and spark is good, and not flooding
you can use test fuel, to prove engine and spark is good.
but id not, if that cam belt is not fresh.
you never posted engine type ,size or cyl count so can be accurate here.
my 1st rule on honda's (all interference engines)
is: RULE1: First do no harm.
and cranking it like mad, is just that.

see belt change intervals. USA miles.
did you replace it? ever?
Honda belts, fleabay $10 belts will never last this long, ever....!!!!!
EngineInterferenceReplace belt rules. (repeats for life of engine)
2.0 (SOHC)Yes90,000
2.0 (DOHC) (K20)Yes90,000
2.2 (SOHC)(F22B)Yes90,000
2.2 (DOHC)(F22C)Yes90,000
2.2 (DOHC Passport)(J32)Yes75,000
Buy Gates belts or Honda real.

OK: ILL pretend engine compression is good
cranks fast
spark is bad. (on all cyl)
connect (in USA) the scan tool and crank for 5 seconds
id bet the ECU just told you (by RPM=0 , or DTC why it dont start)

Make sure battery has a full charge. If it cranks good but won't start, have a helper crank it while you visually check for spark at the spark plugs. If spark everywhere, use a gage and check proper fuel pressure and fuel injector pulse.
If you have tbi fuel injection, fuel pressure is 9--13 psi.
If you have cmfi fuel injection, my info says 55--61 psi.

Put new baterry no crank nothing ;was diriving every day until today seemed the battery was low checked it out no good .replaced it with new one lights,radio come on but no crank .check fuses ok

Thanks for choosing FixYa and welcome to the site. I would say you have a bad starter or starter solenoid. If your ignition fuse has not blown, that checks out. You have a good battery and connection cause the lights work. Find your starter and try hitting it a few times. Don't be afraid to hit a good lick or two. Then try to start it. It may catch and get you where you need to be fore now. It may be completely dead though. That is where you need to check next.

My lexus rx300 new belts are squelling,battery light on,

It sounds like you have loose belt(s). When the A/C is turned on, it puts a big load on the belt, if it is loose and starts slipping and squeeling, then the alternator won't turn, so the battery runs down as you drive. Make sure all your belts and battery terminals are tight.

Car slow to start in the morning, will start after

If it is cranking intermittently then there are lots of items to check. First is your battery in good health? Five years old is old in car life for batteries. Does it have the correct battery? Is the water in the battery at a correct level? Are the connections very clean and tight. Does the engine block have a strong ground connection. Is your starter OK? Starting relay good?
I once had a Camry that gave me fits with intermittent starting. I attached an indicator light in the cab, that was connected directly to the starter solenoid. When you turn the key the light would come on. Finally one time when it did not start but the light was ON then the problem was in the starter! It was in the soleniod, bad, charred connections. Intermittent problem are the worst! Good luck.

94 yj will not crank over but I have a clicking sound, checked batt. and all leads, fuses look good, if I push start yj it will run great.. I installed a new starter and it will only click, will not crank.

It appears you have a poor battery cable ground connection. Remove the cable from the baterry ans lean the bat connection thoroughly. If this is a side post, put a ble in the terminal threads and see if the terminal is loose. If it is, The terminal is broken loose inside and the battery needs replacing. Good Luck, Ned

Theft system 2000 malibu ls

try this: turn key on, crank starter for 1 second, leave key on for 10 minutes. after 10 min. shut key off and repeat 3 times. (on second try, crank a sec. or so longer, the reprogram may take off right away. if not, repeat make sure battery is strong, key could be on for 1/2 hr. sometimes engaging emergency brake before key is turned on prevent daytime running lites to come on to save battery power (if equipped). been through it, thought i'd mention it
