I would assume your battery cables are loose or the battery has drained itself somehow. Try cleaning your cables and tightening them. You made need to boost it or put a charger on it for a while. If you need to recharge the battery, either you have a poor battery that is no longer holding a charge, or something is draining it while it sits. Could be a trunk light, or glovebox light, or many other things.

The battery is dead. I don't know why it dies so quickly. I have the same problem. If my car sits for two days without driving it then it dies. My car was on the side of the road for three days and it wouldn't start. Something is draining the battery.

It sounds like the hydraulic lifters are bleeding down after sitting for a while... there are ball checks which are supposed to prevent this... Try using a good engine flush (a product that frees sticky lifters) and replace the oil with a good synthetic... Hope this helps...;-)

My Honda Accord occasionaly doesnt start!


Check all battery terminals make sure there is NO corrosion on terminal are they are tightly secured. If terminals are good and vehicle just clicks and DO NOT START. Get a boost if vehicle still doesn't start with boost and ONLY CLICKS then you have a BAD STARTER. If with boost vehicle DOESN'T Click and does NOTHING you need a new IGNITION SWITCH Good Luck and Thanks for using FIX YA
