Question about 2004 Honda Accord

1 Answer

Starter motor on the 2004 accord turns slowly and the battery is new.

Sometimes starts fine, sometime the starter will not turn over the car enough to crank it. If you wait 30 seconds then it will turn just enough to crank and its been doing this for a month and is getting worse. the connections are good and tight with no corrosion and it is a four cylinder with only 14000 miles on it.

See if you have any corrosion inside of the insulation of the cable itself. It might be creating a high resistance between the starter and battery.

SOURCE: Honda Accord 1994 V4 LX: Starting problems in the morning

There could be a few things causing this. When the car finally starts, is there any smoke coming out the exhaust pipe? White smoke would mean your headgasket is leaking and is letting coolant into the engine, then it is burned along with the fuel. Does the car run hot? Meaning has it ever overheated? Back to the smoke, if its black, your oil is getting in and is burning.

Now, the reason why it would be hard for a car to start, could be, a leaking headgasket, flooding the car while the car is sitting.

And yes, the car would be able to crank, but just wont start, for a while...because it has to get rid of all that fluid that has leaked into the engine while sitting at night.

Another thing you could look at, is your fuel pump, is it supplying a sufficient amount of pressure? If it isnt, it will take a while for it to pressurize and deliver fuel into the engine. You can check the fuel pump yourself by renting a fuel pump pressure tool from stores like autozone, kragen and more.

Your gas cap on tightly?

Good luck with your problem.

SOURCE: where is the starter relay on a 94 Honda Accord

Yes, it sounds like your solenoid is bad and staying engaged against the flywheel, you could do an amperage draw and a voltage drop test to find out for sure, but you will need an DVOM and a amp clamp. Or you could take it into an auto parts store and they will test it for free. Hope this helps.

Could be the ignition coil or ignition module. Also check the ignition fuse.

SOURCE: replace starter in 2004 honda accord

Try 'jiggling' the key while you hold it in the start position' this could be a failed ignition switch.
It could also be that the + terminal on the starter or starter solenoid may be corroded. Since the battery was just replaced, those terminals are probably clean enough but check the negative cable where it attaches to the chassis or block. If the connection is flaky here, enough current can often pass to allow lower current devices to operate but drop too much voltage if the starter is trying to operate. Starters require 100-200 amperes, many times higher than anything else in our vehicles and show up cruddy connections pretty quick.

01 ford laser has starting issues, turn key all i get is reds, wait a couple of seconds try again and it starts fine, This can go on for a while sometimes. Dont think its starter motor dont get noise


If the commutator (part that contacts the brushes) has a short, it will only energize half of the starter motor then stop. (single "click") just enough to spin the motor past the short, or when it gets worse, repeatedly turning the key, will get you repeated single clicks until past the short, then starts fine

Check with your local parts store, they may check your starter for free, you are looking for excessive amp draw

WHAT IS THE PROBLEM. MY 2005 MITSUBISHI ENDEAVOR LIMITED CRANKS FOR SOMETIME(30-40 SECONDS) BEFORE STARTING?


might be a fuel issue. try this. turn the key like you are going to start the car and you should hear the fuel pump. but don't turn it so far the engine starter turns. then turn it off. then repeat. do this 3 times and then try starting the car. what this does is builds up fuel pressure easier. if it works then you might have a fuel leak or a fuel filter might be clogged or the fuel pump is going.

2004 nissan frontier cylinder wont crank over sometimes


First thing to check would be the starter solenoid-mounted on the starter. In the starting circuit, that is the most high use/high wear item. A tech would wait for the no start condition, then check the solenoid wire for power when key is held in the cranking position. If power is there, it indicates a faulty solenoid. If no power, trace the signal back to the ignition switch-from solenoid to starter relay to clutch switch to ignition switch.
There are contact points (plates, really) inside the solenoid that become pitted and burned from use, and eventually wear down or out.

Starter motor on the 2004 accord turns slowly and the battery is new.


bushes in the motor are warn if it rotates slowly. or slows down then cool off period and its fine. you can replace them but its usually more easier just to change the starter motor, when replacing the motor ask when you get new one if they pay for return of old motor as some places will either give you monies off or money when you bring in old one.

During the past two winters I have had enormous problems starting my car. Have new battery, new starter, crank shaft sensor and many other new parts. Mechanics cant figure out what is wrong. Its as if...


I had the same problem with my Blazer last winter. I had the fuel injectors replaced and now it starts fine. If you haven't had them changed in a while that is probably your problem.

Doesn't always start , has problems in the morning, after it sits for awhile. somestimes it starts alright sometimes it doesn't,acts like it may be out of gas, cranks over and acts like it wants to start,...


May have a fuel pump going bad or a fuel filter clogged. When the fuel pumps go bad they tend to not hold fuel in the line and it leaks back to the tank. That could be causing your hard start sometimes and not others.

2002 impala intermitenly wont start


I would clean the battery connecters or possibly change them. How old is the battery? sometimes when battery get old, they have enough juice to crank the motor but not enough to start it..But then again, if it doesn't crank at all sometimes, it could certainly be a bad or loose battery terminals..Start with this since its the simplest and easiest and could very well be your problem. hope this helps

Need to know signs of my starter going bad


I have a 96 Cavalier and lately, sometimes when I go to start my car, I turn the key and the engine won't crank. All of the dash lights turn on, so I don't think it would be the battery. If I wait a few minutes and try again, it fires right up. This is probably the first sign of the starter failing. I've been told to whack the starter with a hammer while someone is turning the key, but have also been told that with Cavaliers build in the 90's and up, this is a no-no. There are magnets inside the starter that can break if hit with enough force. I have yet to have the starter fail to the point of not being able to start it at all, but I'm sure that time is coming. Hopefully, I can trade this POS in for something decent.
