Question about 2001 Honda Civic

2 Answers

2001 honda civic wont turn over, battery-starter-good, timing belt good, engine will turn by hand but when attempting to start it just clicks. Im leaning towards the ckp sensor

Battery is good, Starter is good , solenoid is good, connections are all good, clutch safety switch is good, with the trans in gear and the front wheels off the ground the engine will turn freely but when the ignition switch is turned the starter clicks, I believe this to be the crank position sensor!!! My friend had the same issue on his 2001 civic, but it would crank sometimes, this one wont even turn over. Anyone ever had this issue before?

  • Check the battery cable connections:
Make sure the positive cable, makes a good connection at the battery and at the starter. Make sure the negative cable makes a good ground connection at the battery and (preferably) at the engine.
  • Check the battery the simple way, like this:
Turn on the headlights, then try to start the car.If the headlights do not dim or go out, then the battery is likely ok.
  • Check the starter and solenoid:
If the wiring looks ok, then look at the starter solenoid for a good connection, and proper voltage at the starter(10 volts minimum while cranking).
If the starter spins and no crank, the problem is most likely the Solenoid's bendix gear is stuck.
Have someone hit (not too hard) the starter while you try to start the car. This usually works by dislodging a stuck bendix gear.
  • Make a simple test of the alternator:
If you can, somehow get the engine running, measure the voltage at the battery. It should be at least 13.6 volts to properly charge the battery.

The crank sensor only comes into play while the engine is cranking or running to tell the computer where TDC is.
A no crank issue would be only the starting or security system.
Do you have battery power at the starter when the key is in the start position ? Are the battery cables clean and tight on both ends ?

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.

Why wont my 98 honda civic start all of a sudden when its been running perfect since i bought it? Its acting like the battery is dead but wouldnt it start to give me signs that its starting to go out?


If you hear a clicking sound but the engine is not turned over by the starter then you have a defective starter mounted starter solenoid, the internal contact that supply the starter motor are eroded from arching. If that is not the case then check all battery connections and have the battery tested, modern batteries seldom give any warning when they fail, one minute cranked over fine next nothing.

Cpk sensor ( crank position sensor)


could be cam or crank but more like crank sensor with no start. cam sensor fail engine can start and run in limp mode but crank it will not. but you should still have engine management light on. also there will be codes stored on ecu you can read to find a fault.

97honda civic wont start.got fuel,spark,and compression


I would do a once over. Make sure your timing belt is installed in the correct pos. I would also make sure your distributor is installed correctly, off one gear and it won't start. Make sure the wires are on the correct post and plugs. Good luck

My 1990 honda civic hatchback wont start...


It could be a problem with either starter if it won't turn over, the wiring to the starter, or it could be related to the fuel or spark delivery when turning over if the starter does turn the engine over.

1991 honda civic si starting problem


have you check the ground wire from your negative wire to battery post? check to see the battery is strong. if it doesn't turn over the engine or crank the engine mean no good ground to the cables. if the car ran fine I dont understand why the car wont crank or turn the motor over it just quit. if the battery check out strong 12 V, starter serenoid may be faulty on your starter or it may be hot and will not turn starter over.
