I've got a 2003 Accord 4 cyl. (in Texas) and I'm thinking of replacing
the battery. I checked the manual and it says to replace with the
capacity 12V - 38 AH / 5 HR .
I guess the 12V is 12 volts and 38 AH is 38 amp hours. However I
don't know what the 5 HR means nor do I know what the CCA or CA or
reserve amps should be inorder to shop at walmart, sears, etc... .
Essentially I would like to know the correct OEM battery to fit this
2003 Accord and need the terminology the stores use to size it
correctly (physical size and capacity). Last resort I will be to go
to a Honda parts dealer tho I doubt they will give me the info without
Last, any recommendations for brand / model for use in Houston, Texas
climate year round (95 F summer, 30 F winter)?
Thanks in advance.
ps-- meanwhile I'll still look on the web and should I find anything,
I'll followup here to confirm my findings (if any).
