Starting my Accord iCDTI has been a bit laborious a couple of times recently. Over the bank holiday weekend it hasn't been driven and now it cranks but will not start.
The original battery is the OE one, so 8 years old. I guess it doesn't owe me anything so I was planning to nip straight out in my wife's car when the shops reopen tomorrow and buy a new one.
BUT I was having a nose around under the bonnet to look at connections, retaining straps etc and saw that the "battery condition" window still shows a green telltale. Should I investigate further before shelling out for a new battery? I have no reason to believe that the original battery hasn't been charging i.e. no battery warning lights.
It will be interesting to see whether this or a car forum comes up with an answer the most quickly!
