I'm using a lower amp battery in mine and it's 6 years old, as it was my original from my last car, long story but vie had this in since January and has been perfect, no problems. However I will be switching back to my original civic battery mid winter. As I only do short trips it hammers the battery with the bits on in the winter. I would just give it a good charge but not a fast charge. To get my green ball so I could see it took 9 days on my optimate charger. If that don't work then £100 for a new battery should do the trick, but you still need the check the drain or the new battery will be shot in a few weeks.

Battery

hi thanks i did say to them about the recals but they said that the fault was that the battery i had was only 640amps and not the recomended 680.amp i have since spoke to an auto electrician who said that the battery would not drain due to a difrence in amp's. and that some thing is draning it. honda at phoenix linwood wont take anything to do with the car until i have the correct battery fited. so i bought one from henry honda. and fitted this. so i will wait and see if it happens again which i am sure it will. henry honda were great yesterday and said that they dont belive it to be the amps but it should have a honda battery. that way they can do a test on the car should it fail again. for a small sum off money£60.00.

I had 3 flat batteries in one day & if you left the radio on for more than 5 mins it went flat got the micu sorted as MJ said and it now lasts for a good time now never had a flat battery since.
