My 2007 Honda Civic coupe had been starting weak for over a week, and it finally stopped starting two days ago. I ruled out the battery because my wipers, and headlights work, aswell as everything else that uses the battery. My battery’s also only a year and a half old. When I’d try to start the car before I’d hear I click, but now that I replaced the starter Hear the starter wering. It just sounds like it’s spinning, and nothing happens. I just hear the spinning, and the engine doesn’t make a sound. I don’t know what else it could be all the connections are made.
Could be a faulty starter, the pinion is not engaging the flywheel ring-gear...
that could be: a solenoid problem (not moving the pinion) or
the pinion is stuck on the shaft or
it is the wrong starter (pinion does not move far enough to engage the flywheel)...
Seen all of these faults in the past so you will need to check.
