2003 Honda Accord Ex V6 from North America
I parked my Honda Accord sedan EX for 6 days. When I attempted to unlock the door using the remote key, nothing happened. I then used the key to manually unlock the car. When I tried to start the car, nothing worked. After jump-starting the car, I took it to my Honda dealer.
They checked the battery, alternator and starter, but could not find any cause of the problem.
Has anyone had a similar problem and,if so, what was the solution?
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know

I have had exactly the same problem with my 2003 Accord LX. It has occurred 5 times, after the car has been sitting for as little as 2 days. Each time I tried to crank the car on a day that happened to be rainy/damp, which may or may not be part of the problem. It has occurred in warm and cold weather. My dealer's service department has checked the alternator, replaced the battery, etc., and also can't find the problem. Does anyone have a clue?

Yes. I have a friend that experienced a similar problem. She would try to start the car, but it wouldn't start. Sometimes it would though. Apparently, there is a sensor in these cars, similar to the oxygen sensor that determines how much oxygen is needed to start the car. Some places you take to have the car checked, do not check the sensors or relays. This requires them to use a different machine that just checks your sensors and relays. This machine gives a print out of everything wrong with the computer system. With what you two are saying, I think that might be the issue. It does make common sense that one would think it would be the battery, alt, or starter, but with foreign cars, that generally isn't the case. I hope I found your problem, and good luck.
