Look at the terminal on your battery. If they are corroded, a 2 year old car really should not have this problem but if there is what looks like mold growing, white, sometimes black. baking soda and water will clean. If that does not work wear latex gloves and remove terminals and clean thoroughly with a wire brush or cleaning tool, and when you re-start it might run rough for a few minutes, while the UCU re= learns' everything, that's normal. But it has a 3 year 36,000 mile warranty, if you have not passed the 36k mark forget all that and have it towed to dealer, they have to pick up tow-bill or come get it with their own truck. Because next is ignition switch trouble

did you buy your car used or new? also how often are you driving? if you bought it used have your battery tested. i bought my 07 accord used from a dealer and they had to jump it when i went to test drive it. i asked the dealer to test the battery before i bought it and they said it was fine. couple months later went to get it inspected and the shop told me my battery was junk -_-.

I purchased it brand new. when it dies it is a complete blackout, no power at all. It is not battery because everything works after a while without doing anything. I suspect either a main fuse, or anti theft system completely shutting down everything including ECU, and resetting after a while.
