Question about 2014 Honda Accord

Open Question

Battery discharges when idle

Our 2014 Honda Accord's battery failed to start the car following 2 weeks without use. the service manager said he has heard complaints from owners that were unable to start their Honda in an airport parking garage when they returned from a 2 week trip. He said car continues to use power while it's off. This doesn't make sense to me. The car has a keyless entry and keyless ignition. Does that system drain the battery to the extent that there's not enough juice to start the car?

SOURCE: Charging problem.. Wont charge battery

The instructions for installing a new alternator usually read to fully charge the battery (12.3 - 12.8 volt range). Otherwise, the alternator will be damaged when it initializes. I have seen some extreme damage result from installing a new alternator with a low-charge battery. The torque required to turn an alternator when damaged in this scenario is unbelieveable!

2011 Honda Accord. Sometimes my car won't start so I get a jump and it starts right up. Battery charge is great and so is the alternator. Also it does make the clicking sound so I don't believe it's the...

1. your battery needed to be checked with battery load checker. some batteries are producing 12.6 v or so but the current current capacity is bad.
2. also check your alternator if it delivers about 13-14 volts when idling to charge the battery.
3. your battery may still be ok if the alternator is the culprit and doesn't charge enough. replace or repair alternator if found faulty.
4. sometimes the starter is also filled with dust that insulates rotor contact terminals. depending on the mileage of your car, it may need some cleaning to get rid of the elecrtrical reistance these dust produces. incase you don't have time to service the starter, try gently whacking it with a hammer 2-3 times and restart your car. the vibrations will clear the dust debris inside your starter, hopefully,

My 2014 Honda accord has been running great... I had my oil changed about 3 days ago, today 2/26/15 no problems all day until I got home turned off car and probably 2 hrs later tried to restart and it will...

It could be your battery. It could also be your alternator, or just corrosion on the battery terminals. I would remove the battery and clean the terminals. Take your battery to a auto parts store. Most will check your battery for free. If your battery is not charged fully ( which is likely) they will have to charge it before testing. This could take a while. If the battery checks out get some battery terminal grease before you leave the store. Reinstall the battery using the grease. Drive the car up to the store and ask to have the charging system checked.
If you can get the car started. This entire procedure can be done at the store. But you would be running the risk of the car quitting on you somewhere on the way to the store.

Ac/heater fan slows and headlights dim intermittently on our 2003accord ex 6 cylinder

engine running or not,,??????
bad battery
or dead charging system.
rusty battery terminals.
check battery voltage parked key in pocket, see 12.65vdc.
if lower , on a warm day the battery is discharged
or at 30F it must be.12.58vdc, rested, if not the battery is discharged
or battery is bad.
if discharged , then charge it.
and fix the bad charging system.
ok you jump start car.
and the battery voltage is 13.3 to 15vdc, if not the charge system is failing, or engine RPM below 800.
if running voltage is below 13.3v the charge system is failing running.

2001 Cadillac DeVille RPMs revving dying

battery not charging , means the charging system is not working , Doesn't mean the battery is bad . The charging system on your vehicle is computer controlled , If the BCM doesn't see the correct voltage , it will raise the idle RPM to over come any load on the system . Probably has DTC'S - diagnostic trouble codes stored in the BCM or PCM , These codes do not always turn on the money light ( check engine ) . Your best bet , take it to the Cadillac dealer , auto zone or any of those has no clue about this . Oh also it will shut down systems .
Battery symbo - Charging System Indicators

BATTERY NOT CHARGING - 7Charging System Indicators

The IPC illuminates the BATTERY NOT CHARGING - 7 indicator in the DIC when the PCM detects a malfunction with the generator output. The IPC receives a class 2 message from the PCM requesting illumination.

I work for Cadillac , have for over thirty year's . Have seen people mess this stuff up big time . So do yourself an take to one of my fellow tech's.

Electrical Load Management
The power management function is designed to monitor the vehicle electrical load and determine when the battery is potentially in a high discharge condition. This is accomplished by using a high accuracy battery voltage reading as an indicator of battery discharge rate. The following six levels of load management will execute in the load management control algorithm when there is a high discharge condition:
The first action requests a vehicle idle speed increase to the powertrain control module (PCM) in order to raise alternator output.
The second action requests a greater vehicle idle speed increase to the PCM in order to raise alternator output.
The third action begins to shed vehicle loads in an attempt to remedy the heavy discharge condition.
The fourth action requests another vehicle idle speed increase to the PCM in order to raise further the alternator output.
The fifth action begins to shed further vehicle loads in an attempt to remedy the heavy discharge condition.
If the above five corrective actions fail, the sixth action of power management further sheds loads in a final attempt to remedy the high discharge condition.
Loads subject to reduction include the following:
• The A/C clutch
• The heated mirrors
• The heated seats
• The rear defog
• The HVAC blowers
The power mode master (PMM) calculates the battery temperature, voltage and charging rate at all times while the engine is running. The PMM calculates the battery temperature by factoring in:

I am thinking that a battery terminal was loose and the mechanic just tightened it up with out bothering to mention it. Ask as to what was actually done to put your mind at ease.

2002 Honda Accord - slow engine start and jerking

Most likely a dirty idle speed control system follow the guidelines below to clean it.

Throttle Body Cleaning on vehicles without electronic throttle control (most 2003 and down)

You can in most cases repair this slow speed stall or unstable idle by cleaning the engine throttle valve and the idle speed control valve using a product called CRC Spray Throttle valve cleaner. Spray the cleaner into the air intake of the engine with the hose removed from the throttle body, the engine will try to stall so hold up the idle speed manually. Once you have used up about 1/2 can of the cleaner stall the engine out while spraying and turn the key off, disconnect the negative battery cable for 5 minutes and then reconnect and drive the car for a about 25 miles of varied driving modes. If this doesn't cure the problem you may need the fuel injectors professionally cleaned by the dealer service dept.

Car won't start. Makes a sizziling or "zzzz" noise when key is turned on.

Had car checked again at dealership. They stated they checked the charging system and battery would not hold a charge. Found a bad cell in the battery. The alternator was working fine. Battery replaced. Car has been starting fine since battery replaced.
