2013 Pilot won't start

Asked by Jul 26, 2016 at 05:08 PM about the 2013 Honda Pilot EX-L 4WD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Zero power from battery. Battery indicator light shows fully charged.  Had on
charger several hours-no result.  Cleaned cables and posts no help.  When
jump starting with another car, it cranks a little and dim lights.  Was not able to
leave connected to other car but assume if left on long enough would start.  
Any ideas?

Could this be fuse related?

You might have a shorted cell inside the battery. Have your local auto parts store test it for you, they can put a draw on it when testing.

Ok Tom, thanks. Live in a small town in Mexico but there's a couple of auto repair places. I'll run it in tomorrow. Doubtful it's a fuse, eh? This has happened a couple times before. Had it jumped and ran fine for a while. Month or 2 later, dead again. Does this jibe with a shorted cell?

And should I just buy a new battery?
