my baby will not start today when i when to check on her,

i tried to crank, and nothing happened...

i visually check that there are no loose connections in the battery...

cranked again... no response... the normal lights that display on the guages hoave no response... even the hazard lights do not work....

my guess is that my battery died on me...

any one second that...

i dun wan to call a tow truck to come down, :(

Pull the battery and have it checked. It could be a bad alternator also that let the battery run down, but not likely since you don't mention BAT light on.

Make sure all your battery, starter, and main bus connections are clean and secure.

good luck

erm.. okie.. now here's the scenario...

i was asking ard, and got a boost from a nissan... ;) i would never let my baby be touched by a Honda... esp a civic...

now everythings working ok... but i would like to find out the cause of my battery dieing out... it's a DIE HARD GOLD btw...

and that was the 1st time i experienced a total battery failure, i call it a total battery failure, for now i remembered, that at the time of my 1st post of this thread, when i opend the door, the door lights did not even come on, and neither did the red light that shows the car door opened sign. that also did not show...

anyone can shed a light

3 years is about right, usually you can get 5, but 3 is good.. Having the guys at Autozone or Sears condition the battery might get you back home, but a new one should only be like $60... Do you have access to a multimeter? If so, when you get a new battery, start the car, and test the voltage across the contacts. If 12v your alternator/voltage regulator (build into alternator) is shot. If +- 13.8 volts, it was the battery and you're golden..
