    2006 Ridgeline, ~300k miles, borrowed by son, calls to tell me it won't start. I pull battery and it's dead. Tests good, recharge, and replace terminals because they were old anyway, so I figured a bad connection didn't let it charge. Alternator replaced 2 years ago. Still won't start, all I...
