My 2013 Honda civic often needs a jump

Asked by Oct 23, 2016 at 03:23 PM about the 2013 Honda Civic Si

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

So my 2013 Honda civic often needs a jump to start it.
There is no battery light on on the dash. I took it to
AutoZone and they checked the batteryand said it was fine,
they also tested the alternator, so the guy said it was fine
but the charging rate is a little slow. Is that authentic, or
could the problem be something else?

Are you leaving something on that runs the battery down? If not have a mechanic check for current draw when everything is off.

I checked and am not leaving anything on. Could something in the engine be stuck on? Could it be in the air conditioner? I just started using the air conditioner as the wether is warming up?
