Have a 2008 chevy impala 3.9L v6. The car intermittently will have issues starting. Car will turn over sometimes is acts like the battery is almost dead then you try again and it starts.

Have the battery load tested, it may have a cell that is failing. Autozone and Sams club and Oriley auto parts do this testing for free.

2002 Chevy trailblazer. No power to drivers door.

Most common problem is a broken wire between body and door. Pull the rubber boot back and see, easier to find if you know what colour the wire is that is not working.

Car starts, when you run it for a while its ok,then you come back later the car is dead, will not start, then you jump it, car starts again

Sounds like your battery has too many dead cells, or your alternator has gone.

After the car has been boosted, turn on the lights, heater, and stereo. If the car wants to die, press the accelerator slightly. If the car stays running, its your battery. If the lights flicker even with pressing the gas pedal, its most likely your alternator.

Wont turn over when starting the ignition

Check the battery to see if it is dead or weak. If you have a voltage meter check the voltage. If the battery is OK check the wiring to the starter to see if the connections are good and clean. It all that is good probably the starter or relay. Take the starter off and get it tested. If that is good focus on the relay.

Car with no power or lights.

Remove and clean the battery and cable contact surfaces. Make sure the battery has 12v...If not, have it charged and load tested. After getting power restored, have the charging system checked to make sure it's working properly (quick check is with all lights and accessories on at idle, you should have no lower than 12.9 volts at the battery, and volts should remain steady, not slowly dropping)

I have 2 batteries in my 2002 chevy trailblazer, 6 cylinder and no indication that either are bad from the indicator in the truck and my truck was as dead as a door nail. It is not holding a charge either....

Remove both batteries and have them charged and load tested. You need to know for sure that they are both good before doing any further system tests.
