Hi all out ther, I have one for you to ponder...I've searched and can't find anything that relates specifically to my problem. On Monday, my wife drove her 1997 Civic DX around the city to run some errands. Starts and stops, whatever. She got home and was going to leave again about an hour later but her car would not start...here's what it does, or doesn't do. When I turn the key to the "ON" position, the dash/idiot lights come on, but only half as bright as what they normaly do. But if I wait about 2 to 3 seconds, they will come on fully bright. The headlights will not turn on at all and again with the key in the "ON" position any attempt to turn on the fan or the wipers and the car goes completely dead. However, you could play the radio all day long if you wanted to. That seems to work. NOW, If I try to start the car everything goes dead and I hear a clicking sound (like a relay clicking) from down near the driver's side kick panel. Is the battery suddenly shot and I'm having a low voltage problem?! Her terminals are totally clean and I've only ever replaced the igniter a couple times on it. I don't think it's the batter but I will throw the battery from my truck in it after work tonight to see if that makes a difference. Thanks for the help!
