my 2003 Honda Accord started making a grinding noise when I try to start it but starts after that. It died while driving and lost all power. It took a minute then all power came back on.

Have your starter and alternator checked. An auto parts store can do that usually for free.

Wouldn't hurt to have a look at this 100 amp main. Click for full screen Under hood PDC Make sure it's seated well and no corrosion. Just a guess but a no-cost look.But that grinding is another matter...could be starter gear or flywheel if it's a loud grinding.
