YES batteries have a finite shelf life as well as a finite service life be sure that the born-on date is within the last 12 months or so and try charging the battery before using if it doesn't hold a charge it is bad.

It could be a dead battery, loose/dirty battery connections or a bad starter.

That is possible, but highly unlikely. -There are many other issues that can seem like a bad battery in a neglected car. The terminals may be dirty, there may be a bad ground, the alternator or voltage regulator can be faulty - etc, etc,

It is possible you have a bad alternator, or a bad connection at the battery. You can take the car by your local auto parts store and have the altornator checked.

Bad connectins at battery? Clean connections. Possible loose battery cables on starter or engine block? Clean and tighten cables. If no help, possible bad battery cable/cables. Test cables and replace as necessary. Depending on what type of car, also investigate starter cylinoid. Hope that helps.

If the car won't start, jump it off. While it is running, remove the positive cable from the battery. If the car dies, then your alternator is bad. If it keeps running then you may have a bad battery.

Yes, one bad cell in a car battery will cause the car not to start.

its either the alternator the battery is bad or a loose or bad wire on the starter

Could be a few things, weak alternator, bad battery, bad wiring. If you have a subwoofer in your car with no battery cap that will certainly do it.

no, its not possible. Actually it is possible for the battery to freeze, if the charge gets low enough it will freeze.

Yes, A car battery can have enough charge to turn on car electrical components but not start the car. This is not much of an indication of a bad battery however. Use a volt meter to test the power in the battery. If the battery seems low put it on a trickle charge. Most modern chargers will tell you if your battery is bad or not. The battery also has to be load tested to determine if it's good or not.

Typically you know your alternator is out when you have to jump start your car numerous times. A way you can test it is by turning on your car and while it's running discount the + terminal. If the car turns off then your alternator is bad. If the car remains in then alternator is good and possible bad battery. Hope this helps

Turn on any light in the car, if the light gets very dim or goes out you have a bad (or discharged) battery. Its remotely possible that the terminal connections on the battery are corroded or dirty.

The price you will pay for a car battery, will depend on what type of battery you want. you can buy a no name battery, or you can go with a brand name battery. Which would cost you more

It is possible to buy a sunshade for a car at your local car dealership, who will have custom sunshades for cars. You can also buy one online from websites like Amazon.

It sounds like the alternator is bad. If the alternator is bad the battery will not hold charge when running

User Avatar

A bad alternator will have the effect of draining the battery, resulting in dim lights, trouble starting the car and the like. It would be best to replace the alternator as soon as possible and possibly obtain a new battery. This may vary depending on how much the bad alternator has drained it. You can get your alternator and battery checked any time at Auto Zone.

If it turns over, the starter could be dragging. Could be your battery cable along with dirty cable ends. Also, I was lucky enough to buy a bad battery.
