2003 Honda Civic Question: Car wont start but clicks

 

Question

Visitor, 1.7L 4 Cylinder, Ogden, UT, August 10, 2010, 16:08

I have a 2003 honda civic that has just gotten a new battery and alternator. Recently a check engine code popped up saying clyinder 4 misfired. Asked the place where I went what that meant and they said it is most likely the spark plugs. My wife took it to work this morning and I went to drive it and now it wont start. It clicks once when I turn the key but wont start. it is a 2003 honda civic ex 1.7 liter. any ideas??

    sounds like a starter motor. while it is getting repaired, have the real diag done for the missfire.

    As for the clicking noise that sounds like a starter problem but for the misfire I would check the ignition system
