Car not starting

Jonathan Edwards

Asked by Apr 19, 2016 at 06:36 PM about the 1994 Honda Civic EX

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My 94 civic won't start. All the lights come on but
nothing happens when I turn the key. I've had the
starter checked and it's fine. Any ideas what I
should check next?

May not be getting power down to the starter. Check the starter relay, and the fuses.


the battery should be newish...and all connections...Frame and MOTOR from the black cable are free of corrosion...most likely grounds are interrupted by salt/corrosion~ wirebrush and bolt back together~

Also, I noticed before this not starting thing, f I push the clutch all the way in the car wouldn't start, I'd have to let up slightly to get it to start. Could something have gone out in clutch?

check the motor mounts~


switch and anchor bolts for the clutch~


Yes there is a safety switch on the clutch pedal that may need adjusting or replaced.
