Why would a 1986 Mustang 5.0 start and run for a while but when you turn it off and try to start it it sounds like the battery is dead and won't start but when you jump it it starts right up?
Answer Battery is dead or the alternator is bad. Answer Have your battery tested at an auto parts store such as pep boys. Chances are your batt…ery will test bad - unable to hold charge.
Answer you got a dead battery. go buy another one
2001 impala 3.4 Interior lighrs went off now they come on plus next morning battery dead later serv engine light came on now off Last week car wouldn't turn over few mins later it started had power.?
Your problem probably is with the Body Control Module. This expensive and a dealer has to replace it. If you are lucky it may just be a loose connection leading to the BCM.
You have a 2001 Dodge Intrepid the battery light is coming on in the morning when you start the car then goes off after you stop and turn the car off and restart has a new battery alternator and start?
I have 2002 intrepid that does the same thing this week the light came on and does not go off volt meter shows 14. volts while the light is on. put a new battry on didno…t help.
My car will not start in the morning won't even crank turn the lights on but starts fine in the afternoon. The battery always reads about 12-125 in the morning and afternoons.?
your carsis probly to cold to start up
What could cause my car not to start after sitting a while When i turn the key on nothing happens i have to hit the negative post on my battery to get power?
Answer Answer There could be two causes to this problem. One might be that your negative post is loose inside the battery and the second reason could be that yo…ur negative cable is loose. If the post is loose there is no way to tighten it. You will have to change your battery. Answer It sounds to me as though either the negative battery connection is bad (take it off clean it & smear with petroleum jelly/vaseline before replacing)
2003 BMW 325I battery light stayed on all day Then tried to start car after 2 days but wouldn't crank so do I just need to replace original battery that has 45K miles?
A car battery doesn't really care about mileage, its life is impacted by age and how well it was kept charged. In other words if the car has an event where it wasn't run… for long periods or lights left on for extended periods. Your car is telling you it needs a new battery regardless of miles. Of course you may have a charging problem but I'd go with the obvious first. p
this could one of two things u have a cracked engine or your starter went out
Jump started your car and drove around several minutes. While driving your radio was flashing on and off and ABS light stayed on When you parked and turned off car the battery was completely dead agai?
your alternator is bad even if you charge your battery it could still die because the battery is being wasted while you drive
My car has auto start I tried to start this morning and it would not start tried with the key and wouldn't start nothing Now can't turn ignition back to off and key stuck?
If you bought a starter not from the company, mine did the same thing. I ended up having to have it taken out, because it was messing with the whole system. Sorry, I wis…h I had something better to say!
What if your car wont start replaced the battery lights came on even started but went dead by next morning what could this be?
something is draining the battery. a new battery will last a couple days if just starting the car. even if your alternator is bad.
If my car won't start and the lights are not coming on but it can be jumped off what may be my problem?
The battery is dieing down and you should go and get a new battery or get your battery charged
If my Battery light and brake light came on and then car died and wouldn't start back what would be wrong?
check if the alternator belt is on it is probably after coming off
Why won't my car won't start the light won't turn on even when you jump start it what could be wrong?
Be sure and check the Negative battery cable connections where it connects to the frame or engine block of your vehicle. I have had this problem before and the cable was loose… at the engine block. Also the Positive cable could be shorted to ground and jumping will not help.
What if the battery is dead and you jump it and it starts but the car won't start back after you turned it off is it the battery or altinator?
Sounds like the battery has a dead cell
Started car this morning it turned over for a second then died Won't even click when the key is turned Tried to boost the battery nothing happened What do you suggest?
I would suspect a blown fusible link inline with your starter, a blown starter relay, or a bad starter solenoid. Test for a blown fusible link with a volt meter; pos lead at t…he power cable to your starter and neg lead to ground. It should show battery voltage. Test your starter relay by removing it and then jumping the the coil terminals ( they are marked on the side or labeled 85 and 86 euro cars ) with a fused lead from the battery pos terminal and ground. When power is applied to the coil leads continuity should be present between the swith terminals ( 30 and 87 on euro cars ). When no power is present resistance should be infinite. If these check out remove your starter and bench test it with a fully charged good battery.
