Question about 2005 Honda Accord

2 Answers

2005 Accord Battery was drained, car received a jump and ran fine for a good ten minutes. While driving it seemed that the power would cut out for 1/2 second then come back on. Car would run fine but it happened about 4 times in a 20 min driving session. Any ideas?

    If I take the battery back to the dealer for warranty do i have to pay a deductable, I will try cleaning it in a few hours. Not sure why it would be drained when nothing was left on.

Check the connections on your battery, it sounds like they could be loose. Also your alternator could be going out. Make sure the connections to the battery are clean, try using soda to clean them.

Whatever the case maybe your car is too new to be having electrical issues, if nothing else take the battery back to the dealership it should still be under warranty.

Check the battery terminals for corrosion. Remove both the positive and negative leads to the battery, and use a brass brush to remove the salt-looking build up. For added security, you can purchase dielectric grease from an auto parts store to ensure a good connection.

If this does not solve the problem, Bring the battery to batteries plus for a free battery check. If your battery is the issue, it may need to be replaced. If none of these solutions works, it may be an alternator problem or something unrelated to the electrical system (such as a fuel filter).

How do you tell if it needs charged or not?


Hi Kelly, A fully charged battery is 12.4 to 12.6. and when the motors running it's 14.3 to 14.6... Three reasons your battery is flat (isn't charging), You have a faulty battery, A power drain or you have a faulty alternator... Clean your battery terminals and If you don't have a multimeter then Try jump starting your flat battery and driving your car for at least ten minutes then turned the motor off and try starting it WITHOUT jump start, If the battery's still flat then it's the battery, If your car starts straight away but won't start the next day then you have a power drain... If you jump start your flat battery and go for a ten minute drive but during that drive the motor dies without turning off the key then it's the alternator....
A mechanic or an auto electrician can usually test Free of charge if you can get it there....CHEERS..

If the battery is completely dead, you'll need to slow charge it for a few hours before trying to use a jumper battery. And you could have something shorted to ground in the car that drained the battery in the first place.
Try disconnecting the battery cables and using a battery charger to bring the battery back to life first.

Battery drain


Unless you used the correct procedure on jump starting there is a possibility that you have corrupted the CPU program. Use a code reader to reset the CPU. Be careful and follow the correct to connect up a jump start battery as it causes a power surge which is deadly to the CPU.

Vehicle was parked and not started for 2 months.


Hi, there will be diodes in the generator that are letting the power from the battery drain away through the parked times when not in use. to prove it charge the battery- then disconnect the negative terminal on the battery, connect 24 hours later and see if the battery as kept it charge, if so - fit new alternator, good luck.

I would first have the alternator checked by an auto electrician to ensure it is working correctly and is providing the correct volume of current. It may be faulty and when driving you will be drawing battery power instead of power from the alternator to run the electrics. This will drain the battery.

Alternators do not last forever and if you are still running the original unit it is likely to be on it's last legs and you will need a replacement unit.
