2007 Civic won't start

Hi,
My sister in law has a 2007 Civic. On Saturday morning the car wouldn't start but the lights and stuff inside worked.

I cleaned the battery terminals and hooked up some jumper cables, the car started just fine and worked until today. The battery is OEM original.

Today she had to jump the car again. Is this just a case of a bad battery or could it be a starter/relay or an alternator? Or main relay?

Thanks

Re: 2007 Civic won't start

To diagnose the issue you'll need to test the battery and alternator output.
