    I checked the fuses and appear ok but I think the fuel pump or the relay is not working now is there a special fuse that controls the fuel system.and it did have dead short in the old battery so when I jumped it it caked as if it was backwards but as I said I replaced the 30 amp fuse and the 40 & 100 amp check good what next . Still frustrated thanks for your input.

You will need to check all the fuses, the main and inside fuse box. for the amp fuse to blow the jumper cables or battery were installed backwards. check all fuses i think you will find another bad one. as far as the batttery light being on, you may have a bad alternator. the car will run until it drains the new battery. the battery light may still be on once you get car started. have the charging system checked.


Again i think its just a bad fuse, the car was starting fine until the battery replacement.

The last thing is that sometimes they loose the idle memory or get flooded from connecting battery with key on, try to start by controlling the gas. hold gas pedal to floor and try to start engine. asengine starts slowly release gas. if car stalls out when gas pedal is let go then restart and hold gas pedal a little for about 2min then release and let idle, good day.

Jump start


I would say you never checked to see if the battery is any good

I most likely is dead or below 12.6 volts & you never jump a dead
battery,you try charging it

Jumping is not charging a battery,you need to own a battery charger

If the battery keeps draining or won't hold a charge you need
a new one,then if the problem exists you have someone do a
Parasitic Current Test to find out which circuit is staying on

Car will not start


this doesn't sound good at all. if you couldn't jump start it within a few minutes, you should have stopped right there. maybe you were jumpping the car wrong, from doing so, you may have fried the computer, that rounds your entire engine. try installing a new battery, if any codes were stored in the computer, clear them out. some times just removing the battery cables for a few minutes will do this . sometimes not. try to start the engine. donot jump start, see if will start on its own. if not, seek professional help, keep blaming goodyear until you get results !!!!!!

My daughter car battery went dead had a jump start but her cousin put the leads on the wrong terminal could this have blown the main fuse as no lights at all put new battery on today


Yes this will defiantly blow the main engine fuse. This fuse is located in the engine compartment and is usually bolted down with 10mm bolts.

Battery goes dead every few days it has a new battery and altnator i jump it every 4days but something draws it dead this is my 1st jeep its a 99 grand cher larado with a 4.0l any ideas what would cause it


Disconnect the negative battery terminal and put a test light between the battery and the wire. If light comes on fairly bright that means that something is staying on in the vehicle. Start to pull fuses till light goes and that will tell you which circuit to look for. Could be something like a glove box light staying on that you can not see.

91 Buick Century 2.5 L brake light on & battery light on


For the Brake light to stay on and the fluid is up...sounds like your sensor is playing dead......

For the battery to die after only (4) hours..you have a very big drain on the battery itself.....without the vehicle right here to look at would be very hard to even guess...electrical problems are a hands on chore...

I'd take it to your garage/mechainc

Jaguar s/type wont start had flat battery now replaced x.reg 2000


Yes the key needs to be reprogramed to the car. Unfortunately that will have to be done by the dealer. Make sure that you have plenty of proof that you are the owner. They will reprogram it but you will not take posession of the car until you prove it is yours.
