    Default Honda civic starting problem

    Help me Friends,
    I own a 2009 Honda Civic Reborn 1.8 I-Vtec.
    My problem is that my car starts in the morning without any issue. When I travel a little while and turn off my engine, the car dosen't starts again. it seems like the battery is totally dead. One thing I noticed is that When this thing happens the lights go off and the digital watch resets. Now I don't know whether it is a battery issue or something else. Please shade some light on this issue.

    Thanks

    Brother Wasim,
    The terminals are a little rusty but are tight enough.

    definitely a battery issue and like you said "it seems like the battery is totally dead" why not just replace it, it isn't meant to run forever

    Battery issue or lose terminals - get it checked from the battery wala and i would recommend you to go for maintenance free battery.

    i suggest you to first get the battery checked. its easy, incase if there is problem in the battery get it replaced and dont bother about checking the earth / grounds.

    The loss of function and performance of any part e.g. Self Starter is a direct result of loss of proper grounding. Good grounds are important because poor grounds cause the voltage drop. Voltage drop can manifest itself as dim headlights, one circuit malfunctioning when another is switched on.
    So the check of battery terminals is a primary part of this DIY while checking the earth/ grounding cables is secondary part.

    Also the weak bushes of self starter may arise such staring problem.

    ^Agreed. but still if battery is weak and due replacement i think first he should replace the battery, clean the terminals and evaluate. still if the problem persists look for ground / earth issues, weak starter etc.

    Brothers, thank u all for very helpful suggestions.
    keeping in mind these suggestions I have decided that
    tomorrow I will take the battery to an experienced man, he owns a shop which repairs and sells batteries.
    If he says that battery is fine and without issue. Then I will give the battery for recharging and will try to give an extra
    earth to the battery, maybe this will work. If this doesn't work as well, then I will take my car to some authorized dealers.
    Thanks again all =D
