Wont start without being jumped but will die soon after


The problem may be a bad alternator. When the battery is completely dead jump starting the car will charge the battery enough to run the car for short periods. Take the alternator to the auto parts store and have it tested (usually for free).

1999 toyota four runner wont start. why


you may have a battery even though its been tested.it possible that there is a bad cell in the battery causing the problem. jump starting it to get it to run tells me this maybe what`s happening as when jump starting it may burn the bridge in the cell that is causing a short within the battery. when it`s running have the charging system check at a repair shop, as some parts stores don`t know how to properly check things(read between what they see and symptoms) and take test results at face value.

My Honda Accord wont start even with a jump. The lights come on but wont turn over. No click, no sound, no nothing


IT's those short drives that burn down a battery! The starting of an engine requires mucho electric to get it running. The alternator then charges the battery, but slowly! If you also have the lights and stereo on it is even slower. Get the battery FULLY charged with a commercial battery charger. Then check to see if the alternator is charging up the battery after you start it. If not, replace the alternator. If the battery dies overnight or in a few days...replace the battery.

1997 ford escort battery new battery dead overnight no electrical works no blown fuses jump start and cables start to melt will push start and run


Check battery cables are correct ! Prime suspect here ! Alternator may be damaged and shorting .. Don't drive any car that will melt jumper cables ! Something very basic wrong here.

My cadillac deville has no power after sitting for a few days. i need a jump to get it started. why is that


Replace the alternator. Once the battery dies, the alternator should still have a little bit of power left in it, if your car isn't starting after it's been jumped, chances are that the alternator is shorted out. Replace the alternator, and also recharge your battery. Check your battery terminals for signs of corrosion, and clean it off with a scrubbie and a mix of water and baking soda.

Ran fine changed battery now it wont crank or start.1995 Chrysler Concorde


I am a strong believer of the KISS therory, so lets start on the most likely. When you replaced the battery, did you also clean the battery cable connections? If not that is the most likely cause! If not, suggest you get jump your car to make sure where the problem is. If it starts with the jump start then it is in the battery system - battery, battery cables, alternator.

Car wont start, lights will come on and radio and windows. doesn't appear to be battery, but it also wont jump off either. is this the starter. makes no noise what so ever when you turnt he key


This exact same thing happened to me, it can be a number of problems. You might not have enough battery charge to get the car going since the fuel pump in this car is electronic, my car did not start but when i took it to a mechanic thinking the battery was perfect because lights and all were on they jump started it and it started then immediately died, i also had a choke pull off failure, leaks in my carburetor, and the float was to heavy causing flooding. 185 dollars later and a rebuilt carburetor my car had a smooth idle and turned on immediately after turning ignition. but then to find out my alternator was bad hence the battery only having enough power for the radio and lights.so in short try jumping the car even though the battery seems good, check your carb or get it checked by a mechanic, then check if your alternator is ok. if i waited for two days without attempting to start car then trying it would start if i held the ignition and pushed the gas pedal down until it started. (see if thats the case for you) my guess is you carb, battery, and alternator.
