Having problems with your Honda Accord ?

I recently had my 2002 HA/SE in for a complete change of fluids, plugs cleaned, and filters changed. I drove it home w/out problems, but something is draining my battery. I replaced the battery, but the problem continued. Again I replaced the battery....no solution. I had the alternator replaced. No luck. I took the light out of the trunk...problem continues.

Just a suggestion. Start by pulling one fuse at a time. If the battery does not drain then at least you have found the curcuit that needs to be checked. Also there may be a short in the starter selonoid or if you had filters changed a live wire may have been pinched. Recheck all filters & make sure nothing is grounding a live wire. Hope this helps. Good luck!

I am replacing the battery in my 1999 Chevy Suburban. The battery has side posts. I bought a replacement battery at WalMart. When I screw the battery's positive side post on, the bolt doesn't screw in all the way into the hole, leaving about a 1/2 inch gap between the battery cable and the battery's hole. There is a copper ground connector on the positve side, but it also doesn't meet flush up against the battery.

Hi, Expert, My 2001 honda odyssey (110,000 miles) had no electricity after I parked the car for about 30 minutes in a sunny noon and heard a rattle sound under driver side. AAA jump started my car and told me to replace a battery as there was corrosion on the battery posts. I replaced a new battery bought from Walmart and used tooth brush to clean up the battery connector and posts. Same problem happened again 2 days later. I drove about 1 hour high way back home (a little rainy night). When I

I have a 2000 Intrigue that has 125,000 miles on it that my teenage son is now driving back and forth to school and school is only about 5 miles away. 6 months ago we had the alternator replaced (with a rebuilt one) and three months prior to that had the battery replaced. He just called me on the way to school and said that as he turned into the parking lot at school the battery light came on. I can't believe it's the battery or the alternator again. Help!

My Saturn VUE eats batteries. I just replaced the battery for the fourth time in three months. I took it to the Saturn dealer three times before it shut down. The first thing they did was to replace the alternator. A week later, the battery was dead again. I've now taken it to the GM dealer twice. The car has passed all the computer diagnostic tests, and I keep getting told that there is nothing wrong with my car. However the only way I can keep it running is to crank it up and run it for

02 VW Passat V6 GLX My alternator won't keep my battery charged. I've had the battery checked (it's good), replaced the alternator twice (because the first replacement was bad,) and I still have the same problem. By the way, I had the people at AZ check the 2nd alternator just to make sure it wasn't bad out of the box either. The multimeter reads just over 12v and sometimes dips to 11.8. even when connected directly to the alternator. This has been true for 2 alternators. I'm at a

I have a 1999 Ford Windstar. We replaced the battery and the van ran fine for about a mile then stopped driving as if it was put in neutral. We replaced the neutral safety switch and it is still doing the same thing.

Is there another way to fix this?

My John Deer L111 is killing batteries. I have replaced the battery three times in the last two years. When the battery is jumped off and all the cells are still good it charges. However when the mower is sitting even for a few days it can kill the battery. The only way to keep the battery strong is to disconnect the battery after every use. It's getting drained from some where but I can't figure it out. Any suggestions?
