My 2013 Honda Civic will intermittently drain the battery after a short trip and fail to start?
Recently, my 2013 Civic will have a dead battery after a long trip, sitting for an
hour or more, then a short trip - then it's completely dead. It seems something
is draining the battery when its parked and then I don't drive it long enough to
charge the battery. ??
Take it up to any auto parts shop and have the battery and alternator tested (it's free). If those check out you may need to test for a parasitic drain (see attached links): http://www.wikihow.com/Find-a-Parasitic-Battery-Drain , http://www.aa1car.com/library/battery_runs_down.htm
Thank you. I took it to my mechanic yesterday and that's what he's looking for. I don't have the experience or ability to do this but I think you are right on! Thanks.
