Asked in Car Starting Problems, Car Batteries
Will a car start if battery is dead?
No, a car cannot be started using only its own battery if that battery is dead. There must be enough charge in the battery to allow the car's electrical systems to work. A common way to overcome such a problem is to use jump leads to connect the car to another battery, which of course must not be another dead one.

What could be the problem on a 1993 730 BMW after you change the battery it still wont start without a jump?
If it starts with a jump, then it is obvious the problem is with the battery. Or, if it started with the new battery at first and then will not start later on without a jump, your alternator is defective. If the battery is fully charged and the positive and negative cables are good, it's possible that the starter motor is bad.
Why might the battery light flash on 2002 Chevrolet Tahoe?
If the battery light is displayed when the engine is running, you may have a problem with your charging system. The battery display will stay on while the key is in RUN until the engine is started. If the message stays on after the engine is started, it could indicate a problem with the generator drive belt, or some other charging system problem. Driving with this message could drain your battery. If you have to drive a short distance, turn off all accessories such as heater, air, radio, etc. and get it checked right away.

1993 Chevy pickup battery dies if not started regularly is there something drawing on the battery?
I have a 1993 silverado that was doing the same thing, and the problem turned out to be a bad regulator inside my brand new alternator. Ireplaced it and went ahead and replaced the battery, I haven't had the problem since! Hope this helps.

Asked in Car Batteries, Nissan 200SX
1985 Nissan 200sx battery was replaced and now the car won't engage to start?
First, why was the battery replaced? If there was a pre-existing problem (like a bad starter, for example), replacing the battery will not solve the problem. If, however, the car started fine before battery replacement, then the problem could be that the battery terminals (clamps) were not sufficiently tightened. Don't laugh, but there have been instances where the plastic cap(s) covering the new battery's positive and negative terminals were not removed (duh!). Remove those plastic caps.

My car started good but the batterie of my car geet down i dont know really what is the probleme?
Check your battery to see if there is battery acid inside. There are circular plugs on top that you can screw off. If there is no liquid inside you battery will not hold a charge successfully, and may severely damage your battery cells. If this is the case a new battery may be needed, if not it may be a problem with the alternator. Your local mechanic will be able to tell you in a matter of seconds what the problem is.

What could be the problem if your 1997 BMW 328i that has a new battery won't start after sitting for two days and must be jump-started?
The problem could be a number of things. One is that the new battery you installed is faulty and you would need a new battery. i would have a professional check your battery, starting and charging components on your car and make sure they are within spec. If they are all good then I would check for a battery draw on the car. This can be an extremely difficult and expensive problem to find; Suggest having certified BMW service done at this point. Make sure you have all aftermarket electrical stuff disconnected: no aftermarket radio, buzz detectors, nothing, not even anything in your cigarette lighter.

Asked in Car Starting Problems
Why won't your car start after jumping it to another car's battery?
It may be because the battery is still dead. Once the car is started with a jump, you need to let the car run for a while so the alternator charges the battery, or it is just going to need to be jupped again and again and again. if your engine won't start after doing the above, it may because there is some other problem. Some possibilities are a bad battery, a fault with the starter motor or the solenoid or the wiring to them, a problem with the the ignition circuit, or the car's ECU (Engine Control Unit) has a fault.

2004 Ford Explorer battery dead over night?
More than Likely you left something on. Or your battery is just old. I've had this previous problem with my 2004 ford explorer, it worked great, started right up then we left it over night then went out there the next morning and it wouldn't start everytime we would turn the key it would click. Then we took the cables off of the battery and the alram started going off. We ended up having to buy a new battery
