Honda accord hybrid 2005 won't start in cold weather
60,000 miles, car won't turn over. usually starts after jumping it from another car for 15-20 minutes but the battery doesn't seem to be the problem, all inside lights and controls still work. this happened 2 days ago and we put water in the battery, not sure if that is what caused it to start or not. car makes weird clicking sound when trying to start, interior panels flicker. in the "on" position all controls are lighted, the flickering only happens when trying to turn the engine over. please help!!

Sounds like a fuse for the DC-DC convertor to battery circut or the DC-DC convertor. Check the fuses under the hood but DO NOT attempt to fix the convertor yourself because there are LETHAL amouts of voltage in the hybrid drive system.

Have you tried checking the battery? Try to give it a jump with another car. Cold weather kills car batteries FAST. Does the car crank over at all? Or does it just make a clicking sound without actually turning the motor? If jumping it gets it started, replace the battery and you shouldn't have any problems. Batteries typically last between 2-5 years depending on their use, if you have a lot of sick car audio and electronics pulling juice, it will cause a "deep cycle" which car batteries were not designed for and that will kill them quick too. If replacing the battery works for a while, but then it dies soon thereafter, you might need to start looking for possible short circuits or current draws. Hope this helps!
If it was my car I would change it even though they are usually changed at about 60,000 but it is rubber kinda like a tire and it could be weather cracked even though it isn't plainly visible to the sun.Also I would change it as if it breaks on a honda it usually ruins the engine which would cost a few thousand dollars to replace and to have a shop replace a belt usually belt and labor $250.00-$350.00 depending on the shop and where you are.
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.
Your alternator is most likely on its way out. The electrical problems happen either when there is a short in the electrical system or there are not enough amps to run everything that's on currently.. Get your alternator tested at a parts store such as advanced auto parts.
