Asked by Jun 27, 2015 at 10:24 AM about the 2003 Honda Civic EX

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

1 Answer

If the battery is good the cable terminals might not be. Must be clean and tight, and have a good ground to block and/or frame -chassis. What you describes sounds like a dead battery, so if you know for a FACT it is good, then it's cables. If you can get it started with a jump, have it load tested. Not just a voltage test, but a load test. How old is battery?
