it was my brothers car he moved so it sat at my sisters for over 6 weeks had to tow it. it was having a small clicking and i dont think it was even turning all the way the lights would come on and once i pulled the key out the fan would come on... i dont really get this car but i need to.
Two things to consider here. Although it has lights, the battery still needs enough charge/cold cranking amps to spin the starter. Do an overnite trickle charge of the battery or replace it. Next, the clicking sound was likely the starter solenoid switch.
These are known to fail, and could need to be replaced as well.
thanks for the help guys. im a girl so this is gonna help lol.. thing is i have to get a new battery first. there was also a huge puddle of i think transmission fluid under the car??
If you suspect a transmission fluid leak, don't do much driving until you can top it off. Be sure that you can find the dipstick...it is located under and behind the distributor just above the starter motor. You must warm the car up to normal temp before checking the ATF level. Be sure to check with the Honda manual or call the dealer for the right ATF to use...There are a couple of different kinds, and you need to use the correct one.
These cars are very unlikely to leak ATF, so be sure it's not power steering or engine oil. If it is confirmed ATF (red color), then look for a trans cooler hose leak. About only other way for a leak is a loose solenoid or cracked trans case.
Post what you find after replacing or charging battery.
