    kind of late, but my honda civic 01 was beeping 6 times and wouldn't start. I could hear a single click as I tried to start it.

    I disconnected the negative terminal from the battery for half a minute. After that I reconnected it and the car started. Disconnecting the battery will drop the ecm codes, and let the computer reset. Still dont' know what caused it, nor if this is a sign of a bigger problem.
