X2 on this one. I would replace it now. I think I'm going with either an Odyssey or Sears Die Hard Platinum, haven't decided yet.

Mine hasn't done this since the first time it happened. This must be one for Mulder and Scully.

If the battery is the stock battery , I suggest you replace it,, what you most likely expierenced is the starting signs of the battery going south , maybe a bad cell in the battery. The stock battery is known to fail pre-maturely. sometimes there is enough power for all the lighting and accessories , but not enough for the engines ECU to start, and prohibiting the engine to turn over.

Anybody else had this and if so, what was the cause?
