Starter grinds Honda Civic
Starter grinds Honda Civic can be caused by a poor connection at the female terminal at the starter solenoid. Fix the problem by replacing the terminal, Honda part 07JAZ-00142A. in 2001-05 Honda Civics.
Before starting this repair, make sure you have the radio unlock code, because you will need to remove the battery cable and that will remove the code from the radio. Disconnect the female terminal from the black/white wire at the S terminal of the starter solenoid. Pull back the rubber boot and examine both the male and female terminals for signs of arcing. If you see any, replace the terminals.
