check your battery cables and you ground. You may want to check your alternator, if the car only starts when jumped started. IMprovement to answer: If the new battery doesn't start the car, obviously it's not the alternator causing the car not to start... Check the starter relay under the hood if it is equipped and if that works then check the starter solenoid located beside the starter motor. If that's working then you can be pretty sure it's the starter motor causing your problem - maybe worn brushes or excess resistance in the circuit.
In most cases a new battery will be charged enough to start the vehicle
try checking your fuses and fuse-able links
the only way to start a car when the remote key is dead is to start it by putting the key into the ignition.
Out of gas versus dead batteryRunning out of gas in and of itself would have absolutely nothing to do with a dead battery.On the other hand, IF someone, not realizing that the gas tank was empty, were to continuously crank, and crank, and crank the engine erroneously thinking they could get the engine to start, then it is for certain that they will drain the charge from the battery and thus "kill" the battery.It's not the being "out of gas" that kills the battery, but the vehicle operator that kills a battery.
Engine ground can find many paths to the battery, but if NOTHING is connected to the negative post... no, it won't start.
There is absolutely nothing you can do to make your legs longer. Better start liking the ones you have.
Absolutely nothing; it doesn't exist. You could start up your own club perhaps.
what kind of "not start" ? Won't turn over? Nothing? What are the symptoms?
Yes, the battery starts the engine, and as long as the battery is fully charged the engine will start. The battery will loose it's charge if the alternator is defective and not replenishing the charge of the battery but the alternator has nothing to do with starting the engine.
Could be your park/neutral switch try putting the car into neutral and and then starting it.
first find out if the engine is getting spark or fuel. if the engine is not turning over or absolutely nothing is happening, find out if the starter is receiving current.
I would start by checking the battery and fuses.
Dead battery? Loose or corroded battery cable? Blown fusable link?
If a jump start will not start it then it is not the battery. You either have a short in the battery cable connection to the battery or the engine/starter or you have a bad starter. Test for a short in battery, battery Cables or connection. Trace where the positive battery cable connects to usually an electrical box on the inside of the engine compartment and put the positive jumper cable there while putting the negative jumper cable on a metal part of the engine (you are by-passing the battery and the battery cables completely). If it does not start now then you have a bad starter.
You could start by acquiring a face and a name, those are fairly necessary for getting an ID.
If it does nothing you have a loose or corroded battery connection. If it clicks and will not start then the starter may be frozen and or defective. I would also try jump starting it to make sure the battery is good even though it shows full charge.
Absolutely not, reason being is water can conduct electricity causing a short, which can cause a spark and if fumes are present either from battery or fuel, can cause an explosion.
WHAT DO YOU MEAN BY YOUR FULL SIZE BATTERY TURNS ON?
Check the connections on the battery. Are they clean and tight? Check the battery. Is it charged? Check the alternator and the connections.

Because power from the battery, which was going to the lights, is being utilised to turn the starter motor. You should really start the car before you turn on your lights to avoid putting unnecessary strain on the battery
No, if it starts on its own without you turning the ignition switch then the ignition switch is defective.
This normally means you have a dead battery or a loose or corroded battery connection. Can also be a blown main fuse.
Nothing. There is absolutely nothing you can do. Once you start you are hooked until the end. But it's okay because I am also hooked! Good Luck!!
