Customer Question
Why does my 2007...

Why does my 2007 Honda Accord keep going dead on me when the battery is not defective but it won't take charge?

Mechanic's Assistant: Did you test the battery with a voltmeter? And have you ever changed one before?

We took the car to a place for a new battery and they said the one we have is good. As did the dealer on previous occasions. We have replaced the starter already. One minute I can unlock the car with my key and get in; the next minute the car is totally dead. We charged the battery, and got it started but it does not hold the charge.

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Accord yourself? What have you tried so far?

Not fixing ourselves. Have used the Honda dealership.

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

Only that I have seen on line that other Honda owners have experienced the same thing and are mystified. I want someone who actually knows something.

Thank you very much for saving my daughter and her family a lot of money on her Honda. You are definitely on my list for future help. Thanks, again.

FredUSA

I just heard from my mechanic. You were right...a $45.00 job. THANK YOU!! Your response was received in less than 10 minutes!!

Linda B.USA

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

Wonderful service, prompt, efficient, and accurate. Couldn't have asked for more. I cannot thank you enough for your help.

Mary C.Freshfield, Liverpool, UK

This expert is wonderful. They truly know what they are talking about, and they actually care about you. They really helped put my nerves at ease. Thank you so much!!!!
