Default 2005 Honda Civic Won't Start

I own a 2005 Honda Civic Hybrid and within the last few months I have been having trouble starting it from time to time. A simple jump will fix the problem for about a week or two, then I'll get in the car to start it and it won't start again. The electronic starter will crank but engine won't start.

Symptoms:
-the car won't start.
-electronics in the car work
-IMA battery gauge shows plenty of battery power
-when I tap on brake Gas gauge shows no gas (but there is plenty of gas in the tank)
-odometer resets to overall engine mileage from "miles in trip" setting
-car battery shows battery is still good


Is this an electronics problem?
Is this an alternator problem?

Any help would be greatly appreciated, and a lifetime of GOOD KARMA will head your way!!!!

Thanks Hyrbid Family,

TG

My answer probably won't be good enough to deserve good karma, but I just wanted to let you know that your car doesn't have an alternator.

My first course of action would be to try installing a new 12V battery.
