My 2003 Honda accord wouldn't start, every time I would turn the key in the ignition it would make a clicking sound but sometimes the radio and lights would come one. We checked the battery, it was good & we replaced the starter. Now if we jump it the car will crank but the rpm needle is way past the 8 and if I mash the break the car will cut off and not crank back up.
First, I would want to know how old the battery is. They have a life of 3-5 years, and should be replaced at that time. If your battery is older than that, it probably is not holding a charge. Check the date on it to see just when it was installed. If over 5 years, replace it and see if that will correct problem.
