Q: My car won't start but the dash lights flicker on and off. Is this common when the battery goes dead? on 1999 Honda Accord

The problem just started today. Currently, out of work I don't wanna buy a battery if that's not the solution. But I don't wanna take it to a mechanic just to find out. It's a battery. I do have a warranty.

Your battery being dead is the initial problem. Whether it's caused by the battery being faulty itself OR by another vehicle component draining or not recharging the battery properly -- that's what's left to be determined.
