Turned the ignition key on my 2009 4dr Accord 4 cyl EX to Accessory a couple of weeks ago and was listening to the radio as i did a couple of last minute items in the yard. It may have been 15-20 minutes, when i got to the car, the car wouldn’t start due to lack of electricity; charged the battery and then everything was fine.
About a week later, was filling the car up with gas, and left the key in ACC position; yep, when i went to start the car 5 (?) min later, no luck; tried a second time, no luck; tried a third time, but pressed the accelerator this time and it started right up.
So i am wondering if the drained battery is not the story or not the full story; is there a reason pressing the gas pedal would help a drained battery?
