Theres a possibility that the engine is seized !! try taking the pullcord casing off and turning by hand. If it don't turn it's broke - for good!!

I have seen issues like this on other Honda's and the problem turned out to be the ignition starter switch. Do this, jumper power directly to the starter solenoid trigger wire and see if the engine cranks.

About the only thing you didn't mention was the starter itself. You could have it tested. But before that, try to see if you have power on the small wire to starter solenoid on the starter, when key is held in cranking position. Pull the small wire off and check for power with a multimeter or a testlight while someone holds the key in crank. This is the signal wire from ignition switch that closes the elec. contacts inside solenoid so the starter gets full power from the battery to spin. (This wire also is in the circuit with the clutch switch and the starter relay.) If you have power on this wire in crank, it is very likely the starter is bad. If there is no power, check that circuit out. It is losing power somewhere from switch to starter solenoid. Good luck.

2004 Honda Civic V-6 engine wont crank at times, sometimes it will work for six or so start-ups then nothing for several key cyclings. I have had the battery out recently and that is when the problem...

honda civic engine should be 1.7 base or v-tech 4 cylinder.make sure the car is in park or if it is a stick that the clutch switch is engaged with the pedal down and the park brake set. You may want to have someone sitting in the car to hold the brake. check the power to the starter wire if it is getting power to the solenoid start wire the small wire with the push on clip. If it is you can try to jump the starter solenoid blade to the battery cable post on the starter solenoid. I use a short wrench anything metal dont touch anything but the post to the blade or it will ground out and make sparks. If you prefer to bench test the starter you wuld have to remove the starter first. some hondas have a computer chip securty that interupts the starter the one I saw had an eye you can put your finger in it its rounded on one end with the hole to put your finger through it on that end and the other end is sqare. If that isnt slid into the slot. The car wont start. bottom line I think your starter solenoid is bad replace the starter after the jump test on the starter if it doesnt turn over.

1995 Honda Civic has no electrical power to anything. Battery tested perfect, starter tested perfect, but still no power. Under the hood all fuses have power but nothing inside car has power.... any...

check for damp on floor in car, when you find it pull back the carpet and follow the cable's you should find a few loom connectors, check for green or blueish mould on the copper connectors it will be your problem. replace the loom or cheaper way is to cut out the connectors and replace them with a junk yard special. good luck.

I tried to start the pressure washer by lulling the cord, there was sharp popping noise, and the engine would not crank to start. It is a Honda K. washer. What went wrong? Pls advise, thanks.

Make sure your oil level is correct and not overfull. If ok, pull the sparkplug out. Then, pull the starter rope to see if the engine spins freely. If it does, pull it 4-5 more times to clear the cylinder of oil or gas. Put the plug back in and try it again.
However, if the rope fails to pull freely, you either have a locked engine or pump. You will have to seperate the pump from the engine to determine which is locked up.

Starter cord wont pull

Try removing your spark plug, you could have fuel on top of the piston or even "vapor lock". If that doesnt work try squeezing the trigger of gun/wand as you pull.

Motor seems to be locked up!!!!!!!!

It may be your engine, but it may also be the water pressure. Try this: Hold the trigger down while pulling the recoil starter. This acts as an unloader for the pressure washer, and may allow the engine to turn over. There is also an oil level in the pump as well as the engine. Check both levels.
Just a thought, but I've been there. Best regards, W/D

I have a mah5500b. prob is washer will not start or do anything. it just beeps. tried the diagnostic test. by pressing delicates and heavy soil. led shows 00. when i push other buttons to check functions....

I had a similar problem on my Neptune. All the machine would do is beep. I believed it was a stuck button so I got a new touch pad and that solved the problem. I also substituted a control board prior to buying the touch pad but the problem was the same.
