I was at work and went to my 2015 Honda Civic at lunch and tried to start it. It took about 5 seconds of it turning to start, then afterwards, my car told me to check Emissions system, check VSA system, check Hill Start Assist System, and check TPMS system. Also, my steering wheel was stiff. I did turn it off and then restart it, but nothing changed besides the stiffness of my car. I drove it for about a mile to the store, and it drove just fine. Sounds the same too. No noises or anything funny with it.

any idea why this could be happening? It has about 84k miles and I bought it used @ 82k.

Hello! There's a general consensus that when you see your dashboard lighting up, it's a good idea to have your battery checked out. It seems that our cars like to act in odd ways when the battery is beginning to fail. That coupled with the fact that it took a little more time to turn over makes me thing the battery is on its way out. Go have it checked at a local parts store!

You know it's a little funny, that not even a week later that I responded to this about checking your battery, all of my warning lights for the same systems came up too.

I went to my local O'reilies to get it checked, and it turns out the battery is bad now. :ROFLMAO: I'm going to replace it this week.

Why didn’t you just replace it right then and there?

It's a weird one because my car will just start up like healthy battery, and there was no signs of it chugging, even when all the dash warnings came on. I'm coming out of a common cold right now, so I didn't want to be outside to replace it today. Texas weather has been all kinds of crazy these past few weeks. Though, I'm thinking of going to the dealer to buy the batt there. I was amazed to see that the battery has lasted 6 years before showing any sign of failure. it's an oem honda performance battery, at least that's what the sticker says.
