Question about 1994 Honda Accord
Hi Wild Bill,
Thanks for all the great help you've given me already!
I checked the starter today-- connected the two wires on the solenoid, got a ton of sparks (enough that it melted the metal on the wrench I was using), but no crank from the starter. Sooo... it looks like it might be the starter.
However, there are a couple of things that make me wary about dropping $130 for a new one. I just replaced it last summer-- it should definitely still be good. When I replaced it last summer, it slowly deteroirated, as well. Would crank and crank, but not get the car started, before it finally just gave out.
Is there any reason you can think of that it would give out this soon?
Rebuilt starters aren't as well made as the OEMs... As a rule, they use inferior components (bearings, brushes, diodes) and are not as meticulously assembled, but the assembly line cranks 'em out in volume and by virtue of that abundant supply, they can be sold with lifetime warranties with out noticeably impacting profit margins. They know that the "lifeime" warranty lasts only as long as the documentation, and that research shows the average consumer had lost or misplaced their "proof" within 7 months. They don't make 'em like they used to!
