just wondering if you did go ahead and get if fixed;-)

mpcoladilla, just like cys said, make sure that it is your starter that needs replacing. The replacement of the starter is really straight forward. Remember that if you have the ORIGINAL RADIO that you must have the customer code number. This is important since you are going to disconnect the battery and the coded theft protection may leave your original radio useless. I attached the page from the service manual that shows the removal of the starter in a few simple steps. Good Luck and let us know if this helped.

+ when the radio lock out start? Is it on all cars now? Where does the customer code number come from and how is it entered?

It is not just Acura but the Benz's and Audi's and a lot of the standard Bose do have it now too. There is actually a separate manual for the stereo that explains how to operate and how to enter the code. Since I do not know which radio it is , i can not specifically say how to enter it. I can check the service manual (1600+ pages)to see how to enter a code.

You can call or go in to the authorized dealer of your car to get the radio code. They need the VIN number, there is a logarithm based on the vin. Add Volvo to the list.

thanks for the reply oldturkey03... i checked everything except for the starter... it just make a clicking sound everytime i turn the ignition. so, i thought it is the starter that has problem. i'll work on this over the weekend. any idea how much a starter gonna cost me? thank you very much for the attachment, i appreciate it..

Hi there prices vary between 90 and 150$ I guess it depends to at where you are located. I find autozone has usually the better prices for my vehicles. Sounds like it is your starter and let us know how it is going. Good Luck.

Most starters show some sign of failure prior to being completely inoperative (but not always). Prior to this, was there any change in the starting proceedure? Different noises than before? Intermittent operation? Having to turn the key several times before the starter engaged? These are all signs of a starter that is about to fail.

A clicking starter solenoid is a sign of low current, enough to trigger solenoid, [click on] but not enough the turn starter motor, [click off], so click, click, click, click.

A low battery would cause this.

Poor grounding would cause this.

Poor power connections would cause it.

A bad starter, [short] would cause it.

Try wiggling the transmission shifter in the park slot back and forth and see if the car starts. The car won't start unless it is in park and there is a contact down there which can get dirty.

http://newcarbuyingguide.com/index.php/n... all you ever wanted to know about the starter and circuit testing. I have had issues with the starter stator wiring having short-circuited and thus the solenoid engaged but the starter did not turn. The other issue that commonly happens are that the brushes are wore down and do not allow the starter to function. I am not even sure if the parts are still available to rebuild your own stator....those were the days :-)

@ oldturkey03... i search on autozone website and there is a store nearby. its gonna cost me $172 for remanufactured starter. thanks again!!!

@ ABCellars... i still do have my radio code... thanks for the info anyways...

@ mayer... wow! what an info... i will double check it again... it could be one of those problems that you mention. it happens that i got to start my car after turning the ignition 4-8 times i think. and during those time, all i'm hearing is a clicking sound. thanks for the information, this is a great help...

Thanks. I just wanted to give you some options to check that don't cost the big bucks. Turkey knows a lot more about this than I, but I don't think you had mentioned the clicking when he gave his answer.

In my opinion for my car, Acura Integra 1991, you should check the contact of small electronic board located next to the gear-shift bar. When you shift to choose the location of P,R,N,D,2,1 of gear-box, because just in P, or N postion, you can start your car.

For my car, the problem come from all wires that connect this board to the starter, and you only hear a click-sound at the starter because the current is too weak, because of bad-contacts from these all wires. I fix this problem by my-method, I set-up an extra-circuit by using an extra-relay 12VDC. The control signal from CPU will trigger the relay, and the relay-contact will triggers the starter. Now I never get this problem on my car any more.

Ok first time for me that I am doing this but just an fyi I had stallhing no spark issues and starter problems well I happened to ACCIDENTALLY kicked my driver side left panel and my car wanted to start all of a sudden we soon realized after spending 600 on parts that it was a short on the relay for the starter we r still tracing the wireing to be sure the problem is fixed but it looks very promising

This is an old post so I will add info for future users. It was stated that the car may start after 4 to 8 attempts. This is a sign of 2 possibilities, the first being that a loose electrical connection or contact has heated up enough to tighten the connection and allow more amperage through to the starter. The second is a bad starter, typically where the bushings inside are worn and the armature is dragging, once you click the starter enough times and the armature moves little by little to a good spot, it will start. Related to this movement can also be a bad armature/brushes contact, again once the armature moves little by little to a good spot, it will start. You typically will experience starter problems that get worse over time.

As others have mentioned, clean all connections and contacts in the starter circuit, battery terminals, main battery positive and negative (engine and chassis grounds) cables, control circuits such as the P/N switch (requires disassembly to clean), ignition switch (this portion is only used to start and requires disassembly to clean, difficult to do if needed), starter relay (just replace it, may be difficult to disassemble to clean and wont last long) and all wiring involved in all the circuits (not burned, corroded (green) connections, or hanging on by a thread). The starter body itself must have a clean ground contact to the transmission housing or the engine block, which ever its bolted to so the metal to metal contact must also be brushed clean.

Bypassing the circuitry and jumping the starter direct at the solenoid (for testing purposes) takes caution to not short anything out, this is what Autozone will do on the counter when you take the starter into them but an unloaded test is not the same as an on the car loaded test. Although they may see the problem if bad enough and your lucky.

For those people who wish to rebuild their starter, you will first inspect for drag marks internally and signs of worn bushings/bearings. If worn to this point, just buy a rebuilt one over the counter. If your brushes are just worn out, inspect all the little copper armature contacts to be sure they do not have deep grooves worn into them, they don’t look burnt and a little sand paper around the area can smooth things up a bit, anything worse, buy another starter. Replace all the items for the solenoid and contacts leading to the points. If you feel large parts such as the stator, armature, bushings, broken housings are needed, just buy another starter. CLEAN everything and LUBE where needed.

I have only replaced the solenoid contacts in many Honda and Toyota starters to fix this type of exact problem. Good Luck to all future starter problem mechanics.
