Asked by Sep 14, 2014 at 12:15 AM about the 2007 Acura TL FWD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

When I tried to start my car I just got a clicking sound when I turn the key in the ignition, after few minutes car started. The next day it seemed as if the battery was dying. I had to get a jump, car started right up.  Had battery checked at local auto shop and was told the battery was good. Any Ideas?

The common causes of this problem is that the battery cables connection are lose or corroded. Start there.

With winter coming put some grease on the exposed ends of the battery cables. That will help keep them from getting exposed to the elements.
