Thanks for your response. I just rolled in and logged on to find your response. I'll print this out and take with me on Monday to the mechanics. Just as an FYI... no, absolutely none, problem with the car today. It goes that way....fine... not fine.. fine again.
Anyway, thank you ever so much for your response and also a big thanks to kiawah for your input, too!

Hello. My 1990 Honda Accord randomly does not start so I have to jump start my engine. Les Schwab just checked my battery plus replaced the negative and positive postings due to corrosion. Any suggestions out there?

Are you saying that you are having random start problems AFTER your battery was replaced and new wire terminals put on?
or are you saying........
You've had random start problems, and when you took it for service they replaced the battery and put on new wire terminals.
If it's the later, then that is a reasonable fix for random start problems.

My question is this,after a drive,i switch off the engine,and lock the car via alarms,all of a sudden,the radiator fan is on,and works approx 5 minutes, Is this normal for HOnda,??My concern is due to the frequent operation of the fan while the engine is off,my battery drains and it difficult to start the car the next day.ANy advice??
I went to a mechanic and what he did was he wired so that when i off the engine,the radiator fann offs too,,and yes,,when is off the engine the radiator fan didnt work,BUT,a new problem surfaced,.,afetr aprox 3 minutes,my car alarms goes on.,i cant open unlock my car,its like all disabled,,in the front part of the car,,the Bonnet,i could hear noise like water is too heated up,,alarm eventually goes off after 15 mins...the next day when i check my radiator water,its still the same level,never reducted, but the spare plactic that stores water for the radiator is emptied,..meaning the hot water noise that i heard was fromn the spare plastic tank,,,what should i do,,,pls pls advice...

Yes, it is Now it sounds like having that rewired has screwed up something else, or that you need a new battery.

Thanks for replying to my message. What I meant was that I had random start problems so when I took my car to Les Schwab, the mechanic recharged my existing battery and put on new wire terminals. My current problem is that now my car will not start unless I jump my battery with portable battery charger. When my car is not running, my battery gets drained. Something is draining my battery and I'm not sure what it is. A guy from Baxter auto supply store checked my alternator belt with a hand held device, he said the alternator is okay. But guy from Les Schwab thinks alternator might be draining my battery.
