It may be the battery-they can do strange things when they are going bad.
Before doing anything drastic, check for some simple causes such as loose
and or corroded battery cables.
Autozone can check your battery, or Sears, Walwart etc. No charge usually.
My 2004 Civic started up fine in the bitter cold this morning, albeit with
some expected slow cranking. I did a quick errand and returned home. 2
hours later, I get in the car to go out again... but now it won't start. It
cranks but does not want to fire up. I even tried the procedure that
involves holding the gas pedal down while cranking for 15 seconds, but
Based on what I have read here recently, I guess it's not unusual for a
4-year old car to have its original battery fail this soon. My '93 Accord's
original battery lasted almost 8 years, but its first replacement (a Sears
DieHard) lasted 4 years.
I have to admit that I use the remote keyless entry religiously, and a
strange incident happened briefly the other day in the parking lot of a
local shopping center. When I went to remotely unlock the car, it beeped as
if I was pressing the lock button a second time. The issue went away when I
got home and did not return.
So is it not unusual for a 4-year old original battery to fail, and could
that unexpected unlocking beep have been a warning sign?
