Customer Question

2006 honda civic high millage [ 230]. Starter turns over a little and the dies as if battery weak. Replaced battery and acts the same. All other power is fine. The starter does turn over some but very weak then stops.

Hello I am master techI would like to know if you have a volt meter ?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
sorry for delay - out of town - yes I do - never have used it thou.
I did put jumper cables directly on wire splitting off to starter to avoid/test possible connection problem at battery.
It still turns over a little and stops

ok sounds like either a battery issue or a failed starter motor has the battery been tested yet ? if not this is the first step so we know if this is a simple battery issue or some more complex like a voltage issue or failed starter .

Read Above ??? Original information.
since it acted like a battery issue I replaced it. No change

sorry I over looked that.

then that can be eliminated from the seen how much voltage is at the starter wire when cranking will be a good indicator if the wiring is good.if you have 12 volts at the solenoid wire when in the cranking position. then I would say the starter is failed.

Thanks for trying but I have been two steps ahead of your advice from the start and you would have seen that if information I had supplied had been actually read.
