I just had issues with my Honda as well. Maybe you should try replacing all the engine management, ignition, starter switch fuses. I thought my issue was more serious and ended up being a fuse.
OK, So Thank you to those that tried to answer my question. I did find the problem, I've had this car for only 1 year and never had any issues so when this came up I was forced to look at the systems etc, thanks to Ben's answer I didn't even know that this car had 2 separate fuse panels one under the hood and one hidden nicely under the front dash, under the ...
@paulster.. Yes.. The start sounds normal and yes jump off refers to getting a rolling start and Poppin the clutch. I do still have to pump the clutch several times before it will turn over..
Get the schematics for your car and trace out the starting circuit with a test light. Wondering in the clutch is 'false positive' and the issue is actually somewhere else, or if the clutch is moving a wire. Your clutch switch will not allow the starter to turn, so if the starter is turning, it is not related to the clutch switch. Your issue sounds to be ...
Next time you hear it click, come to a full stop, back up a bit, apply the brakes again to come to a stop, and try it forward again, listening for another click. If it clicks again, I'd say either the pads are loose enough to slide a bit or possibly the caliper slide pins. I wouldn't worry about safety in either case.
You also need to check the coolant tank if it has one, it may have a leak or the connecting hose has a leak, and when the water in the radiator expands, it's lost to the leak.
You want to make sure you do not put tap water into the cooling system on your vehicle. The cooling system has a leak, which is why you need to refill it periodically. Look on the ground where you park and note any wet spots. Check all the hoses to and from your radiator for any signs of a leak such as wet fluid or runny looking patches of evaporated fluid ...
Brake hard on smoother pavement or cement The smoother roadbed will have a better surface for you tires to slide across and in order to grab and release repeatedly to make the sound you are looking for. Tires squeal when they are grabbing the road surface and letting go thousands, if not more, times a second. The vibrating tire emits the sound as it goes ...
The vehicle battery is not supplying enough power to run the starter. Test the battery and the connections and cables. The video is most helpful. The clicking is caused by the starter trying to turn and then shutting off due to lack of volatage and this process repeats over and over as long as the key is held in the start position.
Make sure the car is in park or neutral with the parking brake on and apply power to the S terminal on the starter. This will tell you if it's the starter or not. If the engine turns over the fault is either in the transmission range switch/clutch safety switch, the starter relay, fuse or ignition switch.
IMO this classic low coolant level Even if your coolant looks fine in your overflow tank it doesn't mean your cooling system is at appropriate levels or that there is not air in your cooling system. Here is a perfect example of a similar situation. Strange overheating behaviour When your car is cool, remove the radiator cap and check your fluid level. ...
