My acura MDX has been showing some funny behaviour recently. whenever i drive it around for a few minutes or hours, especially when it is sunny, if i turn off the engine, it refuses to start immediately. it displays dashboard lights like the battery is weak. which is odd because the alternator should have been charging it while it was on right?

But once i leave ot for say 30mins to cool, it starts at once. i am quite sure the alternator is okay because i tried disconnecting the -ve battery terminal while the car was on and it didnt go off. The battery in the car still shows green light on its indicator and i have used it since i bought it new for about 2yrs 4 months used

Your battery is weak. It needs to be changed. Also have a technician to look at your alternator. It could be over charging the battery
