Question about 1991 Honda Accord
In (nearly) Chronological order: *Battery light comes on for 3 seconds, then turns off, at least once a week, usually when it's rainy *Car has trouble starting in the cold. Will hesitate to start, turn over. Application to the gas pedal helps a little. *Was told once that the battery was struggling, six months later told that it was fine (that was last month). Experience says the battery sucks. *Tonight the engine will not turn over. All lights turn on, fan runs, etc., but car will not start. *Idk if it's relevant, but at the same visit (last month), the Ignition Control Module was replaced. What should I get checked out first? What is it most likely?
The battery may have the volts but the cranking Amps may be low in the battery(light will dim real low when trying to start). If the battery cranking Amps are good then the alternator is charging the battery.
If that is all good then the starter motor may need replacing

I have a 2005 honda odessey. I left the key in the ignition in the on position. The battery is dead. Do I have to recharge or will it recharge over night?

the battery says 12 volts but may be dropping to 4 or 5 under a load...i would suggest jumpstarting the car and see what happens.the battery should read in the high 12 volts and not less than 9.5 under cranking. the dash lights go out on your car when starting,and the alarm will go off ,and disable the ignition if the voltage is too low in cranking the car because the computer will shut it down and activate the anti theft.....check your battery posts are tight. best of luck

My name is Juan Heredia and I'm an ASE certified technician. I have seen this code and this driveability issues before, I will need a little more information about your car to tell you exactly what your problem is, Honda has two different types of throttle bodies for this especific vehicle, drive by wire and cable operated, if your vehicle uses the drive by wire type I would highly recommend to replace the throttle body actuator, if it uses the cable operated one it will be necesary to do a little more testing, let me know if this helps
