no start on a 98 civic hatch

635

Asked by Feb 15, 2012 at 12:15 AM about the 1998 Honda Civic CX Hatchback

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

every so often my car decides to not start. all the lights come up on my dash, but the brake waring light stays on when trying to start. i hear a rapid clicking/ticking noise coming from within the glove box when the key is left on. the only way i have been able to start it after this is to let it sit for awhile then try and boost it. what could cause this no start?
