Welcome to Just-Answer. My name is ***** ***** online handle is Honda-Man. I have over 31 years experience repairing Honda and Acura vehicles. I may need to ask some questions before I can give an answer. As much detail as possible is greatly appreciated.

Is the grinding noise just when the starter is engaged or after?

Thank you, Honda-Man

There has been quite a lot of starter problems with this generation and previous ones. It's a different design that Honda went to on the 4 cylinder engines back in 2003. We have seen a fairly high failure rate with symptoms like yours. Some fail with a grinding noise and some fail with a low battery type noise. If the noise is only when the starter is engaged it's bad for sure. If you would like the price of a replacement I will need your VIN to look up the correct part. A Honda replacement is approx $357 without labor. You might be still under warranty?
