Hey guys,

So when I went to start my car (05 tsx 132,000 miles) yesterday morning, I started it and it won't turn over. I knew it wasn't the battery because headlights work, and all interior lights/radio/gauges work. I haven't check anything else yet. A couple weeks ago, When I start the car the first time it wouldn't turn over, and after a second or third time I started the car, it would finally start up, now It wont start up.
could it be the starter, fuel pump, spark plugs?
If anyone knows, let me know.
Thankss!

Starter is most likely the problem.

04 05 common symptom. The brushes/plate assembly in the starter motor is usually the problem and have been from new. Later models have had the starter brushes-plate assembly revised/ upgraded.

Remove the intake manifold and the change out is not that difficult.

Looking to fix, experiencing the same problem

I have a 2005 with the exact same problem. Lucky it hasn't totally died yet but i got in to go to work this morning and it took a few cranks to go.

Luckly some people have posted some really great videos and tutorials on this. I'll likely try this myself.

Starter sounds like. Replace or it you don't have the money now try the hammer method, but who knows how long that'll work lol
