  • Why won't my Accord battery stay charged? A battery that won't hold a charge is almost as good as dead. The battery might be old. Or, you’ve been leaving the doors slightly open and the lights on overnight. Stop by for a free battery test at your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care and get a handle on your car battery’s health.
  • What happens to my old Accord battery? We recycle it! Nearly 100% of all lead-acid batteries are recyclable.
  • How much will replacing my Honda Accord’s battery cost if I get a DieHard battery? Honda Accord batteries can be affordable, especially when there's an available battery coupon. The best part is every DieHard battery comes with a free replacement warranty and extra coverage with DieHard Assurance.
  •  How long do car batteries last? The typical 12-volt car battery may last three to five years, depending on the type of battery, the driving conditions, and how well the battery is maintained.
  • What is the white, crusty substance accumulating on my Accord’s battery post? The white, flaky stuff that can build up around your Accord’s battery terminals is known as corrosion. Acid leaking from your vehicle’s battery post can have a chemical reaction with the air, leading to an accumulation of the white, powdery substance over time. Corrosion can affect the flow of electricity between your battery and the electrical system in your Accord, possibly causing issues with electrical performance and starting. If left unaddressed for long enough, it may even cause your battery to prematurely fail.
  • What do I do about corrosion on my Accord car battery? Regularly inspecting and cleaning your battery terminals will help keep your Accord’s electrical system running smoothly. Before cleaning, reference your owner’s manual for instructions on how to disconnect the battery cables. Once the cables have been disconnected, gently clean the terminals with a mixture of water and baking soda, a wire brush, and a rag.
