2006 Tsx doesnt want to turn on!

Hi guys, I own a 2006 Tsx and its been having some problems starting up! It sounds like the engine is turning over, but its not turning on. Autozone tested it while it was in the car and they said the battery, starter and alternator were fine but obviously there is something wrong!
Help me please!

Very slow engine turn over. Have you been able to jump-start it? Initial thought is weak battery - especially with the clicking. Usually an indication of a weak battery not able to power the starter.

The car turned on with a jumpstart. So do you think it could be the battery? Is there anything else I can check?

Does the dashboard light up and the headlights turn on okay without starting? In other words, with the key turned to the on position but not start. How old is the battery?

Yes, everything is turing on okay, even the headlights! The only problem was that it wouldn't turn on, like in the video. The battery is about a year old.

I understand. If it is starting with a jump from another car or jump box, then I stand by my original thought of it being the battery. Although it is surprising it is only a year old. Have you deep cycled the battery - meaning left the headlights on by accident or anything else that would have unintentionally drained it? Maybe left a dome light on overnight??

Well... Last night I heard a noise behind me while I was in the car, but I didnt know what it is was, so I forgot about it.

I'm not Home, where my car is, so I can't check if the trunk has a light, I can't remember!

If you have one, you may want to connect your battery to a trickle charger and then see if it will hold a charge. You can also look up how to test for a parasitic draw.
