Starting/clicking problem

I have a 2000 prelude, everythings worked fine up until yesterday. It has a remote start and just as of yesterday the car will not start with the key, the only way to start it is with the remote start. If you put the key in and turn it nothing will happen, other then the electronics turning on. So then I start it with the remote start, put my key in, turn it, all electronics turn on like usual. then once i hit the brake a clicking noise starts, almost like a blinker click. and when it clicks the running lights flash on and off and the interior cluster and clock lights go dim and brighter as if your turning your lights on and off simaltaneously with the clicking sound. And even when you turn your lights on the clicking still keeps going. it goes away eventually after making a few turns and what not. I had a similar problem in another car and it turned out to be something messed up inside the steering column. Just wondering what you guys thought it could be?

Thanks

Have you had the ignition switch recall done?

Re: Starting/clicking problem

Im actually not sure, ill look into that though, the previous owner gave me all the receipts of what he had done to it. Also the power locks stopped working about 2 weeks ago, not sure if it has anything to do with it. You hit the unlock button and you can hear the locks trying to unlock but they wont unlock all the way
