Question about Cars & Trucks

My car randomly will not start recently. When I turn the key nothing happens but a humming sound. Then it will magically start a few minutes later. New battery, terminal connections and starter.

My car randomly will not start recently. When I turn the key nothing happens but a humming sound. Then it will magically start a few minutes later (most of the time). I have replaced the battery and the corroded battery terminals and i continued to have the problem. I then had the starter replaced yesterday at the dealership shop. Everything worked good and then at lunch today it would not start again. I waited a few minutes and after 3 more attempts it went ahead and started. Even though my battery is new, the car will start with a jump if it absolutely wont start. Once the car is started there are absolutely no problems with the vehicle.. the battery doesn't drain.. etc..

My 2005 Honda CRV sometimes won't start but after a few minutes it starts and runs fine. The dealer said the battery needed to be changed. A year later I put a new battery in and the problem is still...


What you didn't mansion is does the engine crank and no start or when you turn the key nothing happened. So for right now I am going to assume the engine doesn't crank due to the dealer saying it needs a battery. For this simple test you need 2 people and a hammer. When person 1 turns the key to crank position and car doesn't crank hold the key in the start position don't let up have person 2 open hood and tap on starter couple times and if car starts cranking and starts up the car is going to need starter. I found quit a few bad starters in Honda. If the car cranks but doesn't start check if it has spark. Another common problem is the distributors go bad but they cost a lot and you should do the proper test to make sure thats the problem.
