2000 Honda Civic 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Manual 285000 miles
I started my civic this morning and it seemed as though the battery really had to grunt to turn it over, yes it is december but it was very mild today, much milder than the last 2 weeks when it had no problems. I started it again and at first the battery seemed like it wasn't going to turn the engine over and then turned once and fired right away. So it appeared as though the battery was running low. Next time I tried to start it, it wouldn't even turn over. So I check the battery with my voltmeter and it is reading 12.25 on the terminals and 12.25 on the battery cables.
The previous owner (who is a friend of mine) told me that he had replaced the ignition module twice in the past. It sounds like the same scenario that he described to me. Is this a common problem and if so what might cause it to become a chronic problem. Something must be causing this?
have the same problem?
