Has trouble starting after listening to the radio for a while
2006 Accord 2.4 liter VTEC 4 cylinder engine the
battery is rated 451 cold cranking amps, reading
495 cca; the alternator is putting out 14.7 Volts for
the charging system everything says the battery is
good everything says charging system is good if I
listen to the radio for like 3 hours I can't start the
car the battery is dead. I don't have any interior
lights that are on, don't have any doors open. I'm
not finding anything that's telling me what's going
on. The original battery had no problems with radio
use. Had no problem for first 2 years with this one.
No extra amps, CD player or other power usage
added to factory system. 172,000 miles on car.
Well the battery is having a desgast and it can not hold the energy like a new if you listen music for like 3 hours is good I can't listen even one so everything is fine just don't use you radio more than one our or you going to need a new battery and they are not cheap
As batteries age their ability to hold a charge decreases. Some batteries are better than others as well. A genuine Honda battery would probably be your best bet. But I'm sure they're more expensive than an aftermarket battery. At the NAPA store where I work we get two and three year old batteries as core returns all the time. Mostly aftermarket brands. The one aftermarket brand that's really good is Interstate. They seem to last very well. The one in my '08 Grand Marquis is 5 years old and still going strong! HTH. -Jim
