Asked by Sep 18, 2014 at 03:10 AM about the Honda Accord Coupe

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I recently brought a 2005 Honda Accord.  
After leaving the sales place I stopped to
the service station to refuel. I turn off the
engine,  try to turn the car on didn't start.  I
purchase a new battery,  car started.  Two
weeks later I started to experience starting
problems having to play with my terminals
to start the car. However, that didn't work
anymore so I had a local mechanic check it
and change the starter,  car ran find that
day. Next morning I experience the same
problem car won't start unless I played with
the terminal.  Took the car back to the
mechanic they check battery, starter,
alternator and wires everything was good.
Later that evening car didn't start not even
when I played with the terminal. What could
be the problem?

Clean up the inside and outside of the battery terminal wires all the way top to bottom. Make sure that they are clean on both sides of the connection.
