Default i have a honda prelude and having problems with the battery.?

my battery is 3 years old. and i got it charged at auto zone. i put it back in the car and the next day it was dead?? my alternator was checked and they said it was GOOD!? so why does it keep dying??































bad battery? i also have a kill switch with is connected to my starter? do you think the kill switch has sumthing to do with my battery going out or is it just old and i need a new battery?

If you don't have a constant draw the battery. it needs to be changed. Try another parts store maybe O'Reilly or CSK

to give you another option besides the "buy a new battery" one, you should see how much water/acid is in your battery, *be cautious while doing this please, its battery acid your dealing with!*















take off the small cap on top of the battery and if its more than an inch from the top low than add water until its almost full.















hope it helps.

Look for anything that may be staying on while the cars off. One I've seen a couple a times is the light inside the trunk will stay on even though the trunks closed and it kills the battery. Hidden stuff or places in the car you don't visit daily, take a look and see if anything is staying on that may drain the battery.

Your battery needs replacement. It could have a dead cell and it will not accept and hold charge. Even if your alternator is working fine your battery will not be charge. One more thing, your battery is 3 years old, this is the ideal time for changing. Hope this helps!
