Q: Car won't start on 2003 Honda Civic

After my car sits for a couple of days, it won't start. When I turn the key there is absolutely no sound what so ever not even a little grinding. I have had the car looked at by a honda repair service a couple of times and they can't seem to find anything wrong. I even had the battery replaced as a last resort and it has happened again. HELP!

It sounds like you may have a parasitic drain, if your battery was replaced and it goes dead very quickly. I am assuming that the shop fully checked out your alternator etc. Do your highbeams work when the car won't crank? if they work really well it may be a starter or ignition switch problem. Does your car start when it gets a jump?
