Magic Battery?


Asked by Jul 14, 2019 at 10:36 AM about the 2001 Honda CR-V

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Have a strange problem,

engine off, use radio or even just AC for 5 minutes and the system shuts

Cant start the car for around an hour, then no issues at all.

Is this a safety system or a fault?

Many newer vehicles will shut down if the battery voltage falls below a certain level. If your battery is old it's probably weak and falls below the limit quickly. Hope that helps! Jim


So are you saying my battery magically recharges itself?

Batteries can regain a small amount of charge by sitting a while. I would have the battery tested and I would also clean and tighten the battery connections.
