The battery and alternator are good according to autozone and oreillys but if i left the radio on with the engine off the battery dies like in 5 to 10 minutes! Is this normal? Anyone with the same issue? Thank you in advance!

Is it the original Acura battery? Only getting 10 minutes or so of radio time was the first thing I've noticed before my battery was on the down hill slide. My Acura batteries test fine also; but, didn't have the accessory run time and capacity on extremely cold mornings to start right up like when new.

OP that does not sound normal. Were you in accessory mode? I suppose if you only drive short trips the battery won’t have the opportunity to reach full charge. Our original battery was replaced under warranty during a service visit when it was around three years old. Never left us stranded, just cranked a little slow.

Does the battery die such that you need a jump? Bad battery. If you can start the car, totally normal. Acc shuts off after 10 minutes to save battery.
