I own a 91 Accord, 120K miles. About an hour ago, when I tried to
start the car, nothing happened. I mean, nothing at all. The engine
wouldn’t even crank when I turn the key. The headlights don’t turn on,
and the horn doesn’t work either. Needless to say, upon inserting the
key into the ignition, the automatic seat-belts don’t move, and no
lights on the dash board turn on.
This is very strange, since in the morning everything was fine. The
car ran as usual, I even had blown the horn at someone .... Out of the
blue, the car is dead. My first thought was that someone stole my
battery. But the battery is there.
Do you think the battery could be dead ? This would be extremely
strange, since there was no hint of that. There is some corrosion at
the battery terminals (I thought the mechanic would have cleant those
when I changed oil 3 months ago). Or could some electrical connection
be disconnected ? Is it a good idea to try getting a jump-start when
the car seems completely dead ?I mean, its not like the engine is
trying to crank and then misfire. The car seems completely dead.
Thanks for any suggestions.
