Archived from groups: alt>autos>honda (more info?)

Hello all,

I have a 2000 Accord EX 4 cylinder that has never failed to start.
Suddenly, it will not.

All dash lights come on, all accessories, power windows, heater, radio
and virtually everything works, but when I turn the key to the start
position, nothing happens. When I first turn the key all the way to
crank position, I can hear something click, perhaps the starter relay,
but after that, nothing.

Believing it might be a battery problem, I cleaned the posts. No change.
Then, because the battery is more than 4 years old, I simply replaced
it. No change. I checked the fuses on the left side of the dash and in
the engine compartment, but couldn't spot a blown one.

Any suggestions appreciated.

Thanks,

C.A.

If you can get it jump started, head on back over to Pep Boys or Auto Zone--
they'll do a free charging system diagnostic for you.

possible bad starter solenoid.
some Hondas have replaceable solenoids,some don't.

Looks like it's the older Mitsuba starters which do not have replaceable
contacts. All the ND ones appear to have them.

Here, this will help you narrow it down. You might need to carry a
hammer for a week to figure it out.
