Default 2002 Honda Civic EX won't start!?

My 2002 Honda Civic won't start! It was working fine and then one day it just wouldn't start! No noise from the starter, new battery, but it won't even try to turn on! What could be the problem?!

I would take a look at the battery connections first. Since you've just changed out the battery, check that it's connected to the terminals properly. If there is no sound coming from the starter, then you're likely looking at a bad starter. You could ask a friend to crank the motor while you tap the starter lightly with a hammer. It's likely that the starter is stuck and a little whack from a hammer on the starter while it's being cranked will get it going (for now). Then get yourself over to your mechanic and have your starter replaced.

You could also check the fuses, in my old honda accord it did the same thing your explaining and I ended up spending 200.00 I could have saved. Check all fuses especially the ones under the hood.

If your battery is really okay as you said, it could be a loose wiring in your starter or if not it could be your starter is stock. Hope this helps!
