Asked by Jun 20, 2015 at 04:13 AM about the 2013 Honda Accord EX-L V6 w/ Nav

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Drove 2013 Honda Accord home from work.  Parked in drive, ran inside, and when I came
out, it wouldn't start.  Foot on brake, in park, and push button and all the dash lights
flashed as long as I held the start button.  Did not crank.  Other electrical seems to work
fine - accessories, key fob, etc.  What to do?

Have you tried putting the shift selector into neutral and then try to start it ? It sounds like an electrical/switch problem in the starting system.

Ended up being a bad battery. The system knew not to try to start the car and drain the battery any more which would require re-programming all the software.
