    hey guys when i try to start my integra i push in the clutch and turn the key all the way over theres 2 clicking sounds ones coming from underneath the glove boy above the ecu its black box .....and the other click is from the relay by the cd player and stuff is .........the car does not turn over just clicks i replaced the relay by the cd player .... :cry2:

    about a week ago i went out there and the car started right up ...like and then 3 times after that started right up then it stoped and started just clicking and not turning over again

    just becuase its getting power, doesnt mean its working. i had the same problem. check the "s" wire do you know what that is? its the black wire on the starter, sometimes it'll corrode. this was my issue, so check into that.

    Have you checked the battery and alternator to make sure that they are fine. My car does the clicking thing when my battery is near dead. But yeah, my buddy's truck has had problems with his starter kicking over, the brushes on it were corroded and worn out, so replaced them and has had no problems since.

    You should find out what it is first?
    Not cranking, and no fuel?
    Have you checked for fuel?
    If something's shorting that relay, you can just carry a box of 100 and replace them everytime you drive.

    This "new" starter you speak of; where did you get it from? You have to watch these aftermarket "rebuilds" that you get from Autozone. They like to work sometimes. It sounds like you have a bad connection(at battery, starter, grounds), a bad starter, or possibly low battery voltage.
    What makes you think you aren't getting fuel? How are you checking this?
    You won't get any fuel if the engine doesn't crank.

    You will get fuel to the rail if you turn the key to the ON position.
    To be sure you're checking for fuel at the right place, take the fuel line from the fuel rail, and have someone turn the key all the way ON but not cranking.
    If gas leaks out, you're getting fuel.
    If you're not, i would check the relays as you plan and replace as needed.

    I know that with the key on the pump will prime the system for 2 seconds. I meant fuel actually sprayed into the intake. What does fuel getting up to the engine have to do with a no crank situation anyway? It's the starter, wires, battery, etc.

    so, you have power at the S wire, dude im serious. just recrimp the S wire... ill take a picture of the starter wire or S wire that gives the starter the signal to turn over, if this is damaged or corroded it will not turn over. so, check this.
