Hi, My 2005 Honda Accord has died twice in the last week for no reason. Last Monday while going to leave work it wouldn't start and I didn't leave anything on, I had a colleague jump it (battery is only 4 months old by the way) and was able to drive normally until yesterday when I got in my car and again it wouldn't start. This time I got out and while looking for a friend to jump my car I got in and for some reason it just started normally and all the electronics turned back on. I will mention I was involved in an accident 3 weeks prior (Mostly rear damage) and also had recently had a new stereo installed.

So what is the voltage on the battery, how old? Also check your battery cable connections, one or both might be loose from the accident.
