My 2005 Honda Accord Hybrid appears to be having a similar problem and it's been going on for over 3 years. The intermittent problem was beginning to drive me crazy. I'd drive to work in the morning without any problems and then frequently get "nothing" when trying to start the car to go home at the end of the day. There were dash lights, radio, etc but not even a click when turning on the starter. When trying to jump start the car, instant turnover. The dealership told me my 60 month battery was done for after only 37months and sold me a brand new very expensive 60 month battery. 38 months later, I was having the exact same problems again. Had the neighbor jump start the car and took it to Napa who checked the battery and was told there was zero cranking power left. I bought another brand new battery with much higher cranking power than the original battery. Something tells me there may be another problem causing the batteries to go bad because it's only been 2 months since the new one was installed. Came home from shopping the other day, several stops, no problems driving or starting until after I got home, stopped the car at the front door to unload. When done, went out to the car to move to the back of the garage and it won't start. Instrument panel lights up but ignition won't even click! Anyone have any ideas?
