Customer Question
2006 honda civic high millage...
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.

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
Mechanic for Honda: MASTER TECH, Honda Technician replied 3 years ago
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 .

then that can be eliminated from the group.so 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.

I just heard from my mechanic. You were right...a $45.00 job. THANK YOU!! Your response was received in less than 10 minutes!!

Linda B.USA

Your answers were clear and the diagrams were perfect. Dealer wanted $87 for an hour of labor and even I did it in 15 minutes.

EdUSA

HONDA PLATINUM was great. I really appreciate his help. I was ready to trade my new Honda until he told me to wait until I got 3,000 miles on it and my gas mileage would get much better.

SummerUSA

I took the Power Steering O-Ring service bulletin linked from JustAnswer to my Acura dealer, and not only did they no-charge the o-ring, they also replaced the power steering pump at no cost.

Gary RStevenson Ranch, CA

Wonderful service, prompt, efficient, and accurate. Couldn't have asked for more. I cannot thank you enough for your help.

Mary C.Freshfield, Liverpool, UK

This expert is wonderful. They truly know what they are talking about, and they actually care about you. They really helped put my nerves at ease. Thank you so much!!!!
