Hi Anonymous, and the usual suspects are:
1.Ignition/Light Key Switch not in IGNITION position.
2.Engine Stop switch in the OFF position.
3.Discharged battery, loose or corroded connections (solenoid chatters).
4. Bank Angle Sensor tripped and Ignition/Light Key Switch not cycled to Off and then back to Ignition
5. Starter control circuit, relay or solenoid faulty.
6. Electric starter shaft pinion gear not engaging or over-running clutch slipping.

Can't be sure but it sounds like a bad connection with one of the battery cables or lead off wire from the battery. Most likely a ground wire is not making good connection, or one is damaged in the circuit. Clean your battery terminals and re tighten, then inspect the rest of the wiring coming from the battery power or ground for damage.

My 1998 Honda Civic will not turn over. The battery is good but when I try to start it I hear no sound. What could be the problem?


If you turn the key and you don't even hear a click, first I would check to see if you move the shifter from park through the PRNDL and back (assuming it is an automatic). If that solves the problem, it is a bad or misaligned neutral safety switch (as far as I know, it is not common on Honda's, but it is a quick test). Then, I would check the ignition switch and the main relay. The starter could be the issue, but usually they still click when they go bad. I believe that that generation of Honda Civic had some issues with the ignition switch. I have been told that the main relays of the 92-95 had problems that may have carried over to a limited amount of the next generation.

Car won't start. Just replaced battery, alterntor and fuel pump. Keeps on cutting off and won't crank.


check the wire from battery to starter and make sure its clean and tight! if wire is ok, it maybe in starter or starter solinoid. also check and be sure wire on ignition to starter is ok.make sure power is at or going through ignition switch. a bad ignition switch will cause many starting problems. if switch is bad, then dash lights will not go off when turning key off. check wiring and starter first. have a good day !

I have a 2006 Mitsubishi Grandis. Something weird is going on. The alarm doesn't activate/deactivate. When I turn on the ignition key to accessory, nothing happens. The internal lights do not work. ...


It may start the engine fine, meaning it has a good ground, BUT, the ground from battery to the body is NOT. Make sure that connection is good and clean.

If you can cause the engine to turn over by shorting out the solenoid then it is OK.Your problem is probably that there is no power getting to the solenoid from the ignition switch. Connect a test light to the control wire at the solenoid and turn the key, if it doesn't light then follow the wire back to the switch looking for a break in the wire.The wire casing may not be broken while the wire may be open inside so feel for soft spots where wire may be broken. Check your ignition switch is sending power to this wire when in start position, the switch may be faulty.

Engine starting problem


The battery still may be bad. The fact that it "warmed slightly when being charged" doesn't suggest it to be good - instead it could have high internal resistance in one or more cells. A battery with this failure still measures a good 12V until you put a load on it. I'd take the battery to a battery store, not a lawnmower dealer, and have it tested there with an actual battery tester. If it's bad, replace it. If it's good, then it's probably the solenoid and that means you'll have to replace the starter/solenoid assembly.
