I have twice experienced a battery drain particular reason…

Customer Question
I have twice experienced...

I have twice experienced a battery drain for no particular reason on my 2014 Honda accord coupe EX. this is the second time in about two weeks I have called AAA

Mechanic's Assistant: Lots of things can cause problems with the battery. The Honda Mechanic will know what to do. Tell me a bit more about what's going on so he can help you best.

This is push start vehicle

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you hoping to fix this yourself?

Last time AAA was able to put it back in service with a jump start. At that time the push start was only clicking. This time the push start makes no noise

Mechanic's Assistant: Is there anything else the Honda Mechanic should be aware of about your Honda?

Not that I know of I only have 7000 mi9les on it

We haven't seen any common causes of a parasitic drain on these accords yet. With only 7000 miles I would probably have it checked at the dealer for an electrical fault. What they will do is hook up an ammeter and see how much draw is occurring while the vehicle is sitting.

You don't have any accesories in the vehicle do you? Phone chargers, add-on stereo equipment, etc?

Also, you could have a defective battery. We so those fairy often on the Honda factory batteries. Have you had it tested yet? (again, this would be covered under warranty)

I don't have added accessories. The AAA mechanic tested the amperage and said it was fine. I probably should have it tested
I also thought I may replace the battery anyway. the first instance was The push start emitted clicking sound when pushed.
this time there is sound when pushed. AAA is on their way. Would amperage check for battery drain be sufficient for that check
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
I meant to say there is no sound this time when pushing the push-start button
Mechanic for Honda: Jared D, ASE Certified Technician replied 2 years ago

An amperage test is ok, but a complete test with a load test would be more accurate. A better test would also identify a bad cell in the battery.

Your symptoms definitely sound like a dying battery. I would have the dealer check it since you are still covered under warranty.

Your answers were clear and the diagrams were perfect. Dealer wanted $87 for an hour of labor and even I did it in 15 minutes.

EdUSA

HONDA PLATINUM was great. I really appreciate his help. I was ready to trade my new Honda until he told me to wait until I got 3,000 miles on it and my gas mileage would get much better.

SummerUSA

I took the Power Steering O-Ring service bulletin linked from JustAnswer to my Acura dealer, and not only did they no-charge the o-ring, they also replaced the power steering pump at no cost.

Gary RStevenson Ranch, CA
