Question about 2006 Honda Element

1 Answer

Battery problem I parked my car. 24 hrs later, I leave for work and the battery is dead. I get a jump. It runs for 2 weeks. I get up to go to work. The battery is dead again. Anyone solved this problem yet? I just read it happened to another person and it was the DEL module. I am now at the dealership to see if they can resolve the problem. But I live way in the outback and am concerned that My neighbor will be inconvenienced to drive a few miles to jump my car.

You either have a circuit somethere in a system or the alternator does not do a good job (Failure of the diode bridge or voltage regulator in the alternator). Also if your vehicle has an average run time (to go to work) of less than 20 minutes, your alternator will not have the opportunity to recharge the battery fully. You can check it for free in Autozone (battery votage and alternator charge).
Also check the battery connectros and alternator connectors for deposition
Good Luck

Battery dead. recharged, car started. drove 20 miles. parked 8 hrs. drove back home. after parking 15 minutes car wont start. Which is problem, alternator or battery?


Don't know.
You would need to have both components tested. It could be a dead cell in the battery. Or a bad connection. If the alternator were at fault it should discharge when the engine is running and slowly go dead.

Vehicle was parked and not started for 2 months.


Hi, there will be diodes in the generator that are letting the power from the battery drain away through the parked times when not in use. to prove it charge the battery- then disconnect the negative terminal on the battery, connect 24 hours later and see if the battery as kept it charge, if so - fit new alternator, good luck.

My voyager wont start it seems the alarm has stuck on , when i turn key nothing new battery fitted ,led light for alarm does not flash anymore /gear/milage lights do not come on ,i have taken battery off...


This may sound a bit simple but check the starter solenoid function by running an external wire to the thin wire terminal from the positive post on the battery.

If the starter does nothing then the starter is bad.

What your describing is a typical solenoid / starter problem. Given the car is now 10 year old, it is quite possible that either the solenoid or starter has failed.

Thanks for using FixYa!

Randomly won't start, happened after jumping dead battery


Probably the battery. Take it the chain auto parts place and they will test it for you.

2006 Mitsubishi Eclipse won't start. Came home from work parked the car no problems at all. Few hours later went out to leave and it won't start. Just out of the blue. I was able to jump start it. No...


Battery is dead... get a volt meter, jump the car and with the car running on its own power check the voltage, anything less than 12v could point to an alternator but a new battery is a better place to start. put it to you this way if the car shuts off while driving, then its your alt, and if its fine wen drivin but wont start back up... its all battery

Car is completely dead, like somebody shot it dead! No sounds, no light, can't shift out of park into neutral or anything....everything completely dead...no warning whatsoever!


Always clean the battery terminals before jumping. An extremely dead battery may not accept a jump as it serves as a 'buffer" instead of helping. If you do get it started, charge battery with a battery charger then have alternator and battery tested for proper operation and check belt condition and tension as well.
