Why is my Honda Accord not starting?
My Honda Accord would not start this morning. There wasn’t anything wrong with it yesterday, but not the lights and radio won’t even come on! What on earth could cause a fairly new Honda Accord to just die overnight?

I’m sorry to hear that your Honda Accord isn’t starting! Fortunately, it sounds like it will be a fairly easy fix. There are several possible reasons why your Honda Accord wouldn’t start. However, based on your description, it sounds like a clear-cut case of a dead battery.
A dead battery is the most common cause of problems with a Honda not starting, especially if the car is pretty new. Luckily, a dead battery is also one of the easiest fixes. Have a friend or family member give you a jump-start and you should be back on the road in no time!
If that doesn’t work, you may have a bad alternator or starter. But based on the symptoms, it definitely sounds like a dead battery. Leaving the radio or the lights on when you get out of your car can easily cause this.
