Is this an ignition switch problem? (video)

Hi everyone,

My friends 2006 accord has an odd noise coming from the ignition area. He said he was going to replace the starter and start from there, is he right on this one?

This doesn’t happen on a cold start but after getting groceries he noticed it. After he stops cranking and tries to start the car it works perfectly fine.


Here’s the sound it’s making:



TIA everyone

Judging by the buzzing sound in the cabin, I would suspect either the starter relay, or the ignition switch.

For this guy, it was the switch.
