Default Extremely Slow Starting

Hey folks,

Trying to get some ideas here... My 2014 V6 EX-L is suddenly cranking extremely slow. It'll barely turn over when I press the button, after it struggles a bit. The battery is brand new, and my K&M air filter is cleaned. I am wondering if it's something possibly electrical. The problem just recently started, and after I drive it for a while, it'll crank normally if I make a stop.

welcome to the forum if you have a new battery, it may be your starter

I agree,if it's not the battery,and you should have it tested under stress ,even new batteries have a bad cell has to be the starter going bad.

2013-2014 Hondas have a higher than average compliant record concerning starters that fail @ approximately 40K miles. Seems the copper contacts in the starters are wearing prematurely. Some say its a faulty design .that the contacts are located close to the armature carbon bushes which have contaminated the contacts causing premature failure.
