Question about 2001 Honda Civic
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?
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.

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 ?

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.
