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.

Asked by Apr 23, 2015 at 11:24 AM about the 2003 Honda Accord EX

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I checked the battery cables/connection and there is no corrosion and seems to be tightened good. Its almost like thers a short somewhere or something. What should I try?

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.
