Today went to start my 2004 honda civic and when I put the key in the ignition I got nothing no power no sound no crank nothing..... I just replaced the battery with a good die hard battery less than 3 months ago.... But when I jumped the car it started right up and off I went....the car ran great as it usually does got to my destination did my shopping car wouldnt start this time I got multiple/rapid clicking...... What in tarnations???
It sounds as though the battery is dead because the alternator isn't putting out the juice needed to recharge it. You should have the voltage checked at the battery with the engine running. It should be between 13.5 to 14.1 vdc. If it is below that, let it run and check to see if it is discharging (ie: the voltage is getting lower). If it is, the alternator is probably bad. You should take it to a auto parts store to have it tested.
