Engine Performance problem
2006 Honda Accord 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 36,000 miles
My car won't start - went dead while sitting overnight in the garage. I jump started it and the engine ran well for about 3 minutes and then it died again. Jump started it a second time - ran well for a few minutes - then stopped again. A Honda dealership told me it was either a bad battery or alternator. I can replace the battery but not the alternator. Does it sound more like a battery issue or an alternator issue?
