Well done ! What kind of maintenance are you doing to your hybrid? Are you getting regular services?
I have always had it serviced at 12500 mile intervals, its had 20 services, 18 with Honda main dealers.

I would suspect the battery,  it will be quicker, cheaper and easier to replace than starter motor.  Get a Yuasa calcium or silver battery,  a CVT needs a good battery anyway as you can't bump start them. When my wife had a CVT I got the best battery I could for it.

No-one passed legislation that you could not have a landline after a certain date and if you did not buy a cell phone it meant that you could no longer have a phone....
So what you are saying is the UK won't change over to EVs until 2040. I doubt I'll be here to see it, but I bet that ICE vehicles will be in the minority before 2030.

Regarding your argument regarding cell phones, by your reckoning they should have taken even longer to take over as there was no legislation driving the change!

Of course cell phones would get popular and everyone would want one, simply because of their convenience - I had a company Motorola clamshell style phone in Australia in early 90's - one of the first that was not the size of a housebrick, and have not been without one since, but for myself and majority of people I talk to there is no big rush to get a battery EV.   A mobile phone was unique, a BEV is not because there are many other ways of getting around. Many business users get PHEV in preference to BEV and by their own admissions never charge the battery, they just get them for tax and congestion charge purposes which saves them more than lower fuel costs.

Hi Helen,
               I have never heard a starter motor mentioned in this forum before so they appear to be reliable.
Batteries,however, have a finite life and cold weather soon sorts them out even if the car did start first thing in the morning. The symptoms you describe are those of a flat battery.
Do you know how old the battery is? Presumably there wasn't a battery charging/alternator warning light on in the dashboard display?
I doubt that the starter motor is different for the CVT but where ever you bought the starter motor from would know, should it turn out to be that.

Hi everyone,
I am new to this forum so I will introduce myself and my Honda.
My name is Helen and I live in the North East of England.
My Honda is a 2004 Jazz SE with CVT  gears.

Unfortunately in the snow today I broke down - the Honda would not start. It would struggle to turn over about once every 2 seconds the starter tries to turn but never fast enough to start it. I believe the battery to be good as it started ok this morning after a very cold night. However once I had stopped it would not restart. I have had to get it recovered to my home address.
I have been told it may be the starter motor. Is this a common issue with the Jazz.
Does anyone on here know if the starter motor is the same for both a manual and CVT car.
If it is different for my CVT does anyone know a part number
Thanks a lot in anticipation of a little help.  :) :) :)
