Is it Honda key starter or starter motor...

Post by Mudguard » October 12, 2018, 1:36 pm

I notice when I turn the key on, there is intermittent starter connection...In other words, turn key again n will start.

Is it the key connection or, the starter motor playing up?

I av Honda 2012 City....I do not trust Honda workshop...for analysis. They always find something wrong elsewhere...

Any info much appreciated...Cheers, Mudguard.

Sounds more like as Earth leakage ie a bad earth. look for the main earthing cable to the frame its usually at the bottom crank case if its caked in crap it could possibly affect the earth to starter and ignition.

How old is the battery? It seems odd but a bad battery can act like that. It's been my experience that Honda starter motors are pretty reliable. vlad's suggestion is a good possibility also, maybe a corroded or loose battery cable connection?

I'd guess that your starter solenoid is stuck. When it sees power the starter motor runs. Can you tell is the starter motor keeps running?

Hi, Glalt....When I turn on, it turns over intermittently n stops when I turn key off...I start again n it turns over O K...
Only in last week...I was thinking along your thoughts to start with from younger experience..
If this is the case, H would want to put a new starter motor in for the money...
I must try to find out where I can get it looked at for check somewhere other then H..
Battery is O K....Cheers.

If the kick starter is ok kick it over if it starts ok its deff Electrical doubtful starter. If the Starter tries to engage the starter then its not the solonoid id check the main earthing cable that leads somewhere on your crank case to the frame, these cables are normally stranded and if a few are snapped that will affect the main earh to ALL electrical components, or look at the earth and live cable supplying the starter. if the starter is sticking tap the side of the starter this normally engages it.

If its auto possible the sensor for park and neutral or brake sensor could be playing up.
not a mechanic just had this before.

There is a very good auto electrician in town.
Used him many times myself , always sorted the problem at a good price , without the main dealer tricks of trying to extract more money out of you for no reason.
Heading from an individual roundabout to Central , hes the last shop on the right before lights , next to an exhaust place , which i think is also his.

This censorship thing is just stupid.
The individual roundabout is in fact the first roundabout from tahan road where you would take the forth exit to get to central. Theres a statue of a past ruler who would of run the country back in the day . rhymes with sing .
