Re: Prelude problem (starting)

Give a little better description. Is it hard for it to turn over? Does it turn over good but doesn't start right away? Are you just hearing a clicking?

I'm going to say that you should check your battery at your local parts store and make sure that's good.

Re: Prelude problem (starting)

I know my battery isn't very strong and my car takes a bit to start. I've heard it could be the main relay, but I'm not sure.

Re: Prelude problem (starting)

I would guess battery, starter, or main relay if it seems to only happen on especially hot and muggy days.
