Can anybody diagnose a starting problem? The car: '98 civic EX milage: 79K The problem: Not starting. It started out very much an intermitent type thing. I attempted to start the car and it failed to start (no grinds, clicks or any special noises) I turned the key off and tried again and it started and ran fine. Approxamately 50 starts later same thing happened and it might have taken a few tries of the key to get it started. The problem has become worse and more frequent (of course) to the point that for all practical purposes the car won't start with the key. When I attempt to start it the dash lights, head lights, radio, etc all work normally. I can compression start the car and it will start and run fine. I did open the hood and was able to confirm that in fact that is the place the engine is kept. I really let my mechanical skills shine when I checked the connections on the battery terminals by trying to give 'em a little wiggle (the seemed fine) I have had one guy tell me I need to remove my battery cables and clean them up (scratch around with a pocket knife) and he thinks that will take care of the problem. I have another guy telling me that with the way it's acting that corrosion is not the problem - that if it wasn't starting because it wasn't getting juice that the radio wouldn't work either. Is it possable to get enough juice to run the radio and lights and windows and such but not be getting enough to charge a coil or whatever it takes to start a car? Anybody have any idea what I've got going on? Any guess on what it should cost me to get it fixed? Did anybody actually read this post?
