Is it cranking or not cranking? It could be spark plugs that are getting old or spark plug wire problem . Your battery goes down because you try to start the engine to many time. is this a new car with electric anti corosion system this system will drain your battery. the problem is the charging system The alternator may need to be replaced. (A local mechanic or parts shop may sell you a rebuilt one and give you some money back for the old one.) It may just be that the alternator belt needs to be tightened. If you're able to turn the wheel (belt drive) on the outside of the alternator with your own hand (while the car is not running, of course), then the belt is too loose. If you have a crowbar and a wrench and a little bit of muscle, you can tighten the belt yourself.

The battery is dead - you would need to boost the vehicle in order for it to start , but once you shut the vehicle off it will not start again without boosting or hooking it up to a battery charger

How is your battery ? Try a battery charger , battery jumpstarter pack , or a battery boost and see if it starts . ( also, it could be a battery cable connection )

When you open the hood , does the underhood light come on ? Or , if the drivers door is open with the key in the ignition do you hear the warning chime sounding ? If not , it sounds like a poor battery cable connection or a dead battery ( you could have a dead cell in the battery , in which case you can boost the battery to start the car , but if you shut it off it will not restart unless you boost the battery again )

you have a loose or dirty battery cable battery is weak or cilenoide is going out.

Sorry no , you can boost or charge the battery enough to start the vehicle , but once it is shut off it won't start again - you will need to get a different battery

User Avatar

A clear sign is if your vehicle wont start without a boost, but fires up fine when boosted. Also dimming lights when vehicle is shut off or running, all signs you alternator is not charging your battery.

Get a new Battery? or a boost?? if it's standard i guess you could always push start it

User Avatar

It probably has a defective battery or circuit board.

User Avatar

If you unplug the battery is for sure is not going to start. What are you asking?

when water spins around and around and keeps on going

Possibly a bad alternator. The Alternator charges the battery when the vehicle is running. If the battery is not being charged this could cause the vehicle not to start.

If the battery light comes on when you try to start your car, either your battery is low or your alternator is going bad. These can be checked by going to an Advance Auto or Auto Zone, they will test it for you for free.

Boost Mobile is not one of the most used phone carriers, I do find it unlikely that they will start carrying iPhones anytime soon.

It's not really a CPU battery but it keeps your Date and Time, etc, in memory so the system will be ready for start up.

User Avatar

The battery will run down and he engine will stop. You will not be able to start the engine. The alternator keeps the battery fully charged.

User Avatar

Sounds like a battery problem. Check the battery. Clean and tighten the battery terminals and cable ends.

User Avatar

It will start if there is enough charge in the battery to turn the engine over. However if the alternator is weak then the battery will not be charged fully.

User Avatar

it may be the starter going out doing it . it will kill the alternator if it keeps going . I know i had it happen to my 96 olds replaced the alt still didnt start and the starter fixed it

You know when the starter on your nissan maxima is going bad when your car doesnt start/ even when someone gives you a boost, all your fuses are fine, and none of them are NOT blown. You know its your starter and NOT alernator when you take another battery from a car thats been driven and their battery is ok and you put it into your car and the car will not start. If its the alternator, then the car would start in that case.
