Yes, not starting after the 12-volt battery has gone dead is a known feature. Replace/recharge the battery, or just jump-start the car, and it'll be fine. Assuming the 12-volt battery is good, that is, and it was just drained by e.g. leaving the lights on. If the battery is bad, you need to replace it. The small OEM battery is hard to find. I'd suggest replacing it with the larger one used in the Civic &c - I think it's a group 51.
