Have a 2010 tl. Can be driving and out of nowhere lights go crazy, steering locks and car dies. Won’t start. Click click click. Jump car- lights go out. Remove the jumper cables and lights come back on. Put new battery in- good for 3 days and then the same issue.

Had the same exact issue with my 08 RDX. My alternator was failing and wasn't putting out enough volts to charge the battery and run the car. The RDX would use the battery for the needed extra power until it ran down too low. New alternator was the fix and I had to replace my +5 year old battery because I ran it down dead too many times.

Put a voltmeter on the battery terminals when running see what voltage you are getting. Should see somewhere in the 14 volt range

That got to be the alternator. Good time to replace it if haven't yet.
