Question about 2004 Honda Civic

Honda Civic Dead Battery then won't start- Kill switch?

My daughter left the headlights on all day while at work. When she came out would not start, so they tried jumping with 2 different cars, no sound whatsoever. The car alarm button also does nothing, but brake lights and horn only still operable, nothing else. I had them try nearly turning it over while pressing button for alarm under dash, and next pressing 5 times in attempt to reset, but nothing works. It is completely quiet. Is this the kill switch, and how can it possibly be reset? The battery is only about 40 days old, and as I said it makes NO noise at all.
Thanks for any assistance.

    It wouldn't at least make a clicking sound? I mean it is completely silent. You don't think the kill switch could be responsible?

    Thanks for your help.

It could be a problem with either starter if it won't turn over, the wiring to the starter, or it could be related to the fuel or spark delivery when turning over if the starter does turn the engine over.

not really, except unhook the battery. there are several things constantly running all the time. 'clock,computer, etc. eventially, the battery will drain. then again, your battery may be weak. an auto parts store will test it for free.

Good-day! I have a 1991 honda civic. My wife unpluged the block heater for the night, so, it didn`t start in the morning. I repluged it in, took out the battery for the the next night to warm it...


#1 lights inside car mean squat they are very low draw how about radio heater headlights...and trying your ignition...I suggest you clean your battery teminal after fully charging your battery and make sure the terminals are nice and tight and then try starting your car w/out turning anything else on if it starts you have solved it if you drive it and it dies then you are just using juice in battery have alternator and battery lode tested at a reputable garage most will do for free on hopes of selling you what you need if they are ok then cherck your starter good luck

In order to replace the water pump you would have to do the timing belt. Don't know if you are aware of how involved and the kill level it requires.

The exact problem happened to me...

Opposed to a blown fuse, most likely the drained/dead battery caused the radio to "reset" itself. You should have a 5 digit (or 4) code that was provided by the dealer or owner. Most owners write it down somewhere on their owners manual. If not, the dealer can give you the code. Once the code is entered, you back in business!

Good luck!

My mind goes to battery, starter, or kill switch.
If you can play the radio and the lights are working, but you get nothing when you try to start it (not even a clicking sound), it's not likely the starter, either.
You may have a kill switch engaged. Some Honda cars have a kill switch that disables the engine from starting. (Anti-theft device installed). Check your user Guide to see if there is info there.
Often, there is a button you need to push or some other trigger to release the lockout.
Here is what I would try:
1. Conact the seller, if you can, to inquire.
2. Call AAA. They may know the various options, and did help me when I had trouble.
3. Call a Honda dealer to inquire about options for disabling it.

Good luck.
