Question about Cars & Trucks

1 Answer

I have a 2005 Honda Accord Coupe and here lately it has been having a slow start. I went to the auto store to check the battery and it was a bad battery. I had the battery replaced and it worked. The next day i went to crank it up, it still had a slow/hesitating start. I took it back to the auto store to check the battery and they said it had an 88%opportunity charge. Still not sure why it wasn't 100%. He told me there could be some wires loose or the starter? Can you please shed some light on some possibilities of what it could be?

You need to have them check for parasitic drain. There is something that is draining the battery when the key is off. This is normal but there is something that is pulling too much..

SOURCE: possible bad alternator?

I went through three alternators before we found a good one for our saturn sl2. Now she has been good for two years. All I did was go back to where we bought it from, they hooked up the alternator to a machine and gave us a new one when it read that it was faulty.

Parking lamps and tail lamps blows fuse, dash lights don't work

First thing I would check is all frame grounds... like the negative battery cable and the grounding strap on the passenger side motor Mount to the wheel hub. In any electrical system, lights draw more current than anything (except the battery) when you turn them on... Check the grounds!

I have a 2000 Honda accord EX. It was running well until I left it in NC for a month while my family and I went to Virginia because of family issues. When we got back I tried to start it and it would not...

This could be one of three things. The easiest first, I would recommend that you check the fuse panel and find the fuse that controls the alternator, pull it and inspect it to ensure that it is in working condition and making good contact. If all is well there, then you will want to go to an auto parts store, and have them check the battery, (over time, hot/cold, and repeatedly being charged/discharged the cells in a battery can/will go bad). If the battery checks out, then you have a faulty alternator. Which, you can have checked at the auto parts store as well. They can test it while it is still on the car.

I hope that you have found this information to be useful, and if I can be of any further assistance, please let me know. Thank you for using fixya!

Honda accord 2005 consistently the battery is going bad. now it wont start and the lights and all the electrical work I dont think its the battery. it clicks when y ou turn itover

charge battery.Take battery to your local autoparts and have them load test it if bad replace if good reinstall in car. take car to parts store have them test voltage running it should be 14 volts or better while running if not replace alternator. this should cure problem. while there have them check draw of voltage from starter.usually their is no charge for this type of testing. I know Autozone does it free.please check good review for me if you found this helpful.

Check Engine Light - 2005 Honda Accord Coupe

The first thing to ask is this, how does the car run? Does it still run the same as it always did, or is something different? The next thing to do is to get the car scanned to determine what code is stored in the computer that is turning on the check engine light. I certainly understand being broke, so most larger auto parts stores will scan the light for you for free. They wont fix it or give much in the way of advise, but they will at least tell you what code or codes are stored. Once you know what the code (s) are, then you can determine what the next step should be.

ABS indicator stays on after changing battery - 2005 Honda Accord

Try unhooking your negative battery cable for about a minute. And the re-inslalling it. If that doesn't reset it , it was probably just a coincidence that the battery amd the speed sensor went bad at the same time.

2005 honda accord could not start

My daughter's Camry did the same thing. Odds are the battery is shot. Pull it out and take it by a parts store to get it tested. Her's showed a bad cell and once a new one was put in, the problem went away.

2000 honda accord

Start with the simple first. Check the voltage in the battery. Some new batteries are not fully charged. Next, clean the battery cables. Make the connectors shine and put a little electrical grease on the connectors.
