Question about 2000 Honda Civic

1 Answer

I returned home from a week vacation and left my 2009 Honda Civic in the garage completely fine, no trouble at all. When I got back and tried to start it up, it was completely dead. Ok, dead battery was my thought. As soon as I gave it a jump, the headlights started flashing and the horn went off like it was on panic mode and there was no way to stop either. The car would start, but there was no radio or time display and of course with the lights and horn, there was no way it was drivable. I tried jumping it a couple more times, same result. It was almost as if the car was trying to tell me that something was wrong and to not drive it. Any thoughts?

The first thing I want to mention is that if the vehicle goes crazy like that make sure you are jumping it correctly with positive and negative in the right locations. The reason I mention is because if it is jumped incorrectly it will cause the vehicle to make the alarm go off like that and could fry your whole electrical system. Try jumping the car it may be a alarm issue, that goes off when power returns to the vehicle, use the remote to try and shut it off. If that gives you no luck, then turn next to your charging system. This would mean your alternator or starter, either one of the two could have gave out on you during that period. If that still does not work check all your fuses to see if there are any popped, and also try and get it to a autorepair shop, they would be able to determine of a sensor has affected an electrical component within the system. My best gues would be either a short or a problem with your charging system. Those two aspects would be you'r best bet.

Hope This Helps!

I have a 56 plate 1.4 civic and it is pulling to the left!


If the steering saft was broken you woudnt even be able turn at all, without looking at the car, it could be a number of things, cv joint ,wheelbearings, struts, even the rim might be out balance or alignment, stabilizer bar bushing could be worn out, it would be best to take it to honda dealer to confirm the problem, but i dont understand why it would pass MOT with a broken steering shaft!
