I just replaced the battery in my wife's 2008 Honda Accord.

Customer Question
I just replaced...

I just replaced the battery in my wife's 2008 Honda Accord. Now there is no sign of power any where. What are the reset procedures that I need to do now?

Mechanic's Assistant: Have you tested the battery with a voltmeter? And can you see if it's leaking or not?

I just put in a brand new battery.

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

Yes car would not start. Turned over real slow. I removed old battery and bought new one from local car dealership. And installed new one.

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

Now there is not any power to the system at all.

Hello my name is ***** ***** welcome to just answers! I will be assisting you with all of your vehicle questions today. Give me one moment while I review your question and come back with a answer. Please be aware I do not know your skill level or abilities so I will be asking a lot of questions and in a lot of cases we will respond to each other quite a lot before we find a solution. As far as phone calls are concerned that is the system prompting you, not me, and they do cost more money, I prefer text but in some cases a phone call is required. If I don’t answer right away or quickly in conversation I am helping another customer or have stepped out for a moment and will respond as soon as I can. Ok lets get started!

It is very easy to blow a fuse on these, make sure the terminals are on correct first then check all the main fuses in the underhood fuse panel

The fuse stigmatic says that the battery fuse is 100 A . would this not be the one most likely blown?
Mechanic for Honda: Mechanic01, ASE Certified Technician replied 1 month ago

yes but it can blow others, have you checked these yet?

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
