It's most likely nothing wrong with the battery or the alternator. You can confirm this at any parts store as they have test equipment they will put on it for free.

THe most likely problem is short in a wire that is slowly(or maybe not so slowly) draining your battery when the car is shut off. These are among the most difficult problems to diagnose unfortunately. There's really not much you can do other than laboriously test wires one by one unless you get lucky and find a frayed or cut wire during a visual inspection.

Your truck has a different problem altogether the catalyst code is not a definition for your vehicle,with the vehicle running at idle feel the EGR,if it is hot to touch, ist open and will need to be cleared,if that is not the problem Check the MAF (mass aiflow boot) the boot for the air flow can have hidden crack sending false air signal to the ECM of the vehicle,causing the stall

2010 Elantra Touring - car won't start - doesn't turn over (battery is fully charged), clock/radio & A/C units don't work, and EPS doesn't work. Dealership cannot figure it out.


sounds like a fuse. check them and get back to me. If the shop you took it too cannot figure it out they probably should not be a shop. i hope they didnt get you for a diag fee. Im going to locate a wire diagram to help you figure this out.....Also you said you put a new battery in the car, check that the battery terminals are clean and tight.

Pull that distributor cap and watch the rotor as it is cranked. If the rotor doesn't turn the timing chain is broken and causing your problem. If it doe look at the crank position and Cam Position sensors.

You need to find a repair shop that can figure out the problem. dont waste anymore time and money guessing what to replace next. Find a shop that does a lot of Chrysler/Jeep work, they will have better scanners and techs than a general do it all shop.

Just because they are new doesnt mean they are good. Plus, you may have a different problem and replaced perfectly good parts already. If the voltage goes that low in a few minutes, you have problems. Time to have a shop check it over that works on Hondas.

Does the battery light turns off when you start the car? You can check the main fusible link by the side of the battery.(60A or 100A) this could be the problem
