try putting a different battery in there or checking the water level in the battery. I had an 86m prelude that did the same thing, turned out to be low water in the battery.

Agree with different batt suggestion. Occasionally a defective battery will not accept a charge. If one is not available and you have an automatic batt charger; a quick check may be: connectthe charger and set on a medium rate, (6/8/10/12A),and watch the charge meter. If it quickly goes to very low charge rate then, two reasons could be: defective battor batt is at full charge.

Normal fully charged batt voltage - digital meter check - post to post - vehicle not running - 12.66V, (6 cells x 2.11V ea. = 12.66V)

Vehicle running - ALL accessories ON - 13.8V to 14.4V.
